BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Sept. 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Authentidate Holding Corp. (Nasdaq:ADAT), a provider of secure web-based software applications and telehealth products and services for healthcare organizations, today announced that CentraState Healthcare System has selected the Inscrybe® Hospital Discharge solution to automate and streamline their patient discharge processes. Inscrybe Hospital Discharge facilitates the placement of patients at short- and long-term post-acute care facilities, with out-patient home care providers or specialists and with required home care supplies and equipment.
Inscrybe Hospital Discharge enables hospital case managers and discharge planners to optimize the patient discharge process. It converts the manual patient discharge and placement process from one involving the management of multiple paper files, confirming phone-calls and faxes and related delays, to an automated on-line, electronic process. Case managers, social workers, and discharge planners can easily and quickly search for the perfect facility or provider that has the capabilities and accommodations required to meet a patients' needs following their discharge from the hospital and confirm that placement on-line. For those patients who are being discharged to their homes but need home medical equipment or in-home care, Inscrybe Hospital Discharge can also be used to place the referral for the required equipment or services. The solution also includes a secure communication feature that can be used by a hospital to monitor post-discharge patient care.
Carl Ausfahl, Assistant Vice President, Quality and Performance Improvement at CentraState, said, "We are committed to continuous improvement when it involves the continuity of care for our patients after they are discharged from the hospital. The Inscrybe Hospital Discharge solution has a unique ability to help us match our patients' needs with providers that can effectively manage their recovery in post-acute care settings. In addition, we expect that the efficiencies in workflow will save our social workers considerable amounts of time and effort in the discharge process and help us to optimize our facility utilization."
