TripleCare Selected for CMS Telemedicine Study at Three Skilled Nursing Facilities
TripleCare has been selected to participate in a CMS study evaluating the cost effectiveness of telemedicine at skilled nursing facilities (SNFs).
The one-year study, currently underway at three Florida SNFs, will assess the benefits of [TripleCare’s] telemedicine-based virtual physician services in preventing both avoidable nursing-home-to-hospital admissions and readmissions as well as evaluate the economic impact on Medicare, Medicaid and the participating facilities.
The study is led and managed by The TRECS Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving care for seniors while decreasing healthcare costs.
It is interesting to note that in a recent separate TRECS study during which TripleCare provided virtual physician services, both a dramatic improvement in the quality of patient care delivered as well as a significant financial benefit were reported: 91 instances of hospital admissions/readmissions were averted, resulting in more than $1.3 million in savings for Medicare. Additionally, results revealed positive increases in net revenue for the study facility, which significantly exceeded the cost of TripleCare’s services, thereby improving both top- and bottom-line financial performance for the SNF.
