CareRise Holdings Expands On Its Risk Management Platform In Creating CRI|CareRise Index, A Rating Service For Post-Acute Care And Senior Living Facilities, Signs National Distribution Agreement With Healthcare Giant McKesson
NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CareRise announced today that it is now offering its new healthcare rating platform for all post-acute care and senior living facilities and communities. The name of this new service is CRI|CareRise Index, and its creation is made up of (in part) CareRise's 16 years of performing specialty risk management, patient safety services in healthcare facilities nationwide, as part of a facility's overall insurance program.
"Our aim with CRI|CareRise Index is to be the J.D. Power-Google for post-acute care and senior living. Obviously, we are approaching 2017, and we are taking 'this ratings issue' to the highest levels and where it should be for all parties involved in the healthcare spectrum, from the patient and consumers, to all healthcare providers and professionals, and to all of the key utility companies that serve them," said Tim Goux, founder of CareRise. This is what Goux now refers to as "the astronomy of healthcare," creating models where everyone involved is in a winning situation and/or getting the support needed. CareRise has recently signed a national distribution agreement with healthcare giant McKesson, and CRI|CareRise Index will also be available through CareRise's strategic alliances with specialty brokerage firms and insurance companies that distribute products and services to the healthcare industry. "The post-acute care and senior living industry has been in dire need for this type of service. The idea for everyone from the consumer to all healthcare professionals having access to this type of near real-time information with a quantifiable score, that takes into consideration all of the quality-care factors that matter, is truly a game changer for the industry," said Clint Maun, president of the Maun-Lemke firm, a specialty consulting group that provides service to over 300 healthcare facilities nationwide. "After growing CareRise into a national company and seeing the overwhelming daily stresses in the healthcare, financing, and insurance industries, coupled with the massive inaccuracies as it relates to the 'ratings of facilities,' I would have lived with a sense of guilt had I not pulled the trigger in building out CRI|CareRise Index from our existing platform," Goux said.
