Stocks in this article: MDRX

CHICAGO, July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kindred Healthcare, Inc., headquartered in Louisville, KY, has selected the dbMotion interoperability platform to share patient information throughout the entire care episode from hospital to home fulfilling the Patient-Centered Care Model for Kindred's "Continue the Care" vision.

"Allscripts is providing Kindred with a solution that will help enable the organization to better manage patient care across its sites and business units," said Paul M. Black, President and Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. "This technology will give Kindred's caregivers access to enhanced analytics, allowing them to provide more effective and efficient care for the communities it serves."

Kindred is partnering with hospitals and other healthcare providers to develop a more quality-driven, patient-centered and efficient healthcare system. dbMotion will create a virtual single patient record for three of Kindred's divisions – Transitional Care Hospitals, Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers and Kindred at Home. With the dbMotion technology, Kindred will harness harmonized data, aggregated from across the connected community, to improve care and care transitions. Using dbMotion, Kindred expects to realize better clinical, operational and financial outcomes to help drive efficiencies across the organization.

"We chose dbMotion to more effectively coordinate and minimize gaps in care throughout a patient's entire episode – from hospital to home," said Rick Chapman, Kindred's Executive Vice President, Chief Information Officer and Chief Administrative Officer. "Our goal is to partner with other healthcare providers to enable full recovery and to prevent readmissions. With access to a patients' entire longitudinal record, dbMotion will help us do just that."

In addition to helping manage care transitions, dbMotion will help Kindred's referring organizations meet Meaningful Use 2 attestation by supporting transitions of care through standards-based information exchange and clinical workflow tools.
