Ensocare announced today that it has partnered with Dell Services to enable end-to-end coordination of discharge management and care transition processes for hospitals. The cloud-based discharge management platform, powered by Ensocare, will help Dell customers improve bed utilization and patient experience while reducing readmissions.
“Now hospitals and healthcare organizations can benefit from a powerful integration of processes and services that couples the innovation and strength of Dell IT with the power of Ensocare’s automated discharge management platform,” said Ensocare President, Luis Castillo.
More and more, hospitals are being held accountable for the outcomes their patients experience after discharge. Preventable readmissions or re-hospitalizations directly affect patient safety and outcomes, as well as hospital reimbursement and accreditation. Decreasing the rate of hospital readmissions has been targeted as a high priority for U.S. health-care reform. In 2012, the U.S. government started to penalize hospitals for excess readmissions.
Dell’s Population Health Solutions approach includes a complete portfolio of solutions, system integration, secure hosting, business process outsourcing and our continued deep commitment to the future of healthcare. Dell provides an efficient and effective solution for case management that seamlessly integrates with Ensocare’s no-cost, nationwide network of post-acute facilities. Using Ensocare’s technology solutions to replace once-manual processes enables health-care organizations to transition patients efficiently through care settings; monitor risk factors to allow for as-needed interventions; engage patients and family members by connecting them electronically to their care team, care plan and educational material; and capture and analyze data surrounding patient adherence, patterns of readmissions, provider performance and clinical outcomes.
Dell’s Healthcare Provider focus and strategy represents one of the longest standing components of the Dell Services business. “Our healthcare Provider solution business focuses on a set of core themes that we see as critical in supporting our provider customers,” said Sid Nair, vice president and global general manager at Dell Services for the Healthcare and Life Sciences (HCLS) business. “Some of our key core themes include Patient Engagement, Population Health and Revenue Cycle Services, all of which utilize Ensocare’s considerable strengths.”

Ensocare’s solutions unite patients, families and health-care organizations to ensure that patients get the right care at the right time after discharge.
