Post-acute software company WellSky has partnered with Post Acute Medical (PAM), a national healthcare company that provides post-acute care in long-term care and rehabilitation hospitals and outpatient clinics.
PAM is leveraging WellSky solutions across various care settings, including inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation and long-term acute care hospitals (LTACHs). The company operates more than 40 hospitals in the United States.
Throughout 2020, PAM implemented WellSky LTACH and rehabilitation software, which includes its revenue cycle management (RCM) module and its electronic health record (EHR). PAM is leveraging WellSky RCM in 43 of its hospitals and EHR technology in eight hospitals.
In 2021, PAM reported it plans to continue implementing WellSky’s EHR at approximately 20 of its rehabilitation facilities and LTACHs. Also, PAM plans to extend WellSky’s RCM and EHR technology into its inpatient behavioral health facilities in the future.
“Our decision to convert our existing systems to WellSky was pivotal for Post Acute Medical, and it allows us to integrate across the care continuum, from both a financial and clinical perspective,” said Kristen Smith, president of Clinical Innovation and Business Intelligence of PAM. “WellSky centralizes key functions from pre-admission through discharge. WellSky ultimately reduces manual processes, streamlines reporting, and eliminates the need for other vendors/systems, which is unique in the post-acute space.”
