Atlanta – Healthcare Solutions, a provider of healthcare cost management solutions for the workers’ compensation and auto insurance markets, today announced that the company has been named as a finalist in the third annual Case In Point Platinum Awards sponsored by Dorland Health. The company’s Concierge Care™ program was recognized as a finalist in the discharge planning category.
Concierge Care, a full-service home health and discharge-planning program, utilizes Healthcare Solutions’ in-house nurse specialists to assist customer case managers in identifying and coordinating all necessary home care services for each injured worker. Through the program, Healthcare Solutions’ nurses coordinate with discharge planners and case managers to facilitate each injured worker’s smooth transition from the hospital to a home care setting. This coordination includes identifying qualified nursing agencies to deliver home care and recommending appropriate durable medical equipment and home modifications to help injured workers avoid complications or delay in care.
“Healthcare Solutions’ nurse specialists collaborate with our customer’s case managers and hospital discharge planners to identify and deliver healthcare services in a manner that works best for injured workers,” said David A. George, CEO, Healthcare Solutions. “We are proud that our Concierge Care program has been recognized by Dorland Health, a highly regarded healthcare publisher. The Healthcare Solutions team will continue to deliver high quality health care services focused on the support of each injured worker’s return-to-work and maximum medical improvement goals.”
The Case In Point Platinum Awards finalists were selected based on a number of criteria, including: innovation, leadership, behavioral change, patient education and empowerment, improvement in effectiveness and efficiency, and cost containment. The Awards recognize the most successful and innovative programs and individuals working to improve healthcare across the care continuum.
“We are honored to have our Concierge Care program receive this recognition”, said Caroline Sparks, vice president of clinical services for Healthcare Solutions. “By recognizing changes in the healthcare industry, focusing on patient-centric outcomes and anticipating complex service needs, our program provides a unique coordination of services geared toward healthier and faster outcomes for injured workers and cost-savings for payers.”
