HumanGood Selects Netsmart to Enhance and Integrate the Experience of Aging

OVERLAND PARK, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–HumanGood
and Netsmart
have announced a partnership to enhance and integrate the aging
experience through a single electronic health record (EHR) platform that
spans all senior living care settings and facilities. HumanGood has been
recognized in the senior living industry for reinventing the Continuing
Care Retirement Community (CCRC) concept, identifying outdated and
inefficient care models and replacing them with a seamless aging
experience for their residents across California, Arizona, Nevada,
Washington and Idaho.

To eliminate traditional barriers of coordinated care and gaps in
information, HumanGood chose Netsmart as its EHR technology partner
based on its ability to create a single resident record across all
senior living care settings, including skilled nursing, assisted living
and independent living. Providing a single care plan and one unified
bill, regardless of an individual’s care journey, will enable HumanGood
to deliver the most efficient and effective care possible, while easily
proving clinical and financial outcomes.

“By adopting solutions that support their organizational strategies,
HumanGood has demonstrated its sophisticated approach to care for
individuals and its continued commitment to their mission to
revolutionize what growing older looks like,” said Netsmart CEO Mike
Valentine. “By choosing technology that is active today, they are able
to improve care delivery not only for other providers but also for their
residents and families, advancing their progressive approach in the
process.”

HumanGood will leverage current Netsmart solutions to gain a
longitudinal view of an individual’s complete health record, painting a
clear picture of a patient through access to valuable data spanning
across multiple care settings. This approach facilitates a complete look
into an individual’s health history that supports a truly integrated and
person-centered approach to care needed to thrive in a value-based care
landscape.

Solutions and services from Netsmart will enable HumanGood to have a
technology backbone to support its new vision for care and aging.
Real-time access to the
powerful Netsmart network
and the Carequality
interoperability framework will enable the seamless and secure exchange
of vital health information in a discrete format that reconciles
clinical data and populates directly into the EHR. This access enables
connectivity with settings across the entire healthcare continuum,
including hospitals, ambulatory care, home health, hospice and beyond.
Electronic referral management along with interfaces with pharmacies,
labs and radiology can create efficiencies and convenience for
clinicians while improving the experience of residents receiving
services.

“Organizations like HumanGood are true innovators in redefining the care
we receive as we age,” said Valentine. “As the silver tsunami
approaches, HumanGood is taking the lead in transforming how they are
delivering care and proving outcomes. We applaud them and other
organizations who are taking on a forward-thinking, strategic approach
to growing older. We look forward to a long-term relationship with
HumanGood as we partner together to advance this mission.”
