LTPAC leader recently approved to become New York City’s first Life Plan Community
March 26, 2019[BLOOMINGTON, MN] – MatrixCare, a leading out-of-hospital technology provider in the United States and three-time winner of the coveted Best in KLAS award for long-term care software, has been selected by The Hebrew Home at Riverdale as its technology platform partner.
The Hebrew Home at Riverdale is recognized as one of the best nursing homes in the country with innovative programs like vision care, therapeutic activities, college courses, memory care, and exercise programs serving a range of older adults – from those needing assistance with the tasks of daily living to those requiring specialized treatments and ongoing care. In fact, the organization was recently approved to become the first Life Plan Community (LPC) in New York City. Previously referred to as a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), this unique business model focuses on health and wellness, with multiple levels of care (independent living, assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing care) that are available to its residents as needs arise. The Hebrew Home will be implementing MatrixCare’s Enterprise Financial software as its first step in moving toward the fully integrated MatrixCare enterprise platform needed to support the LPC model of care.
Other leading healthcare providers that have upgraded to MatrixCare in the last year include Signature HealthCARE, Pegasus Senior Living, Lutheran Services Carolinas, SanStone Health & Rehabilitation, PruittHealth, and National HealthCare Corporation.
“With the patient-driven payment model coming this Fall, we knew we needed to be on Enterprise Financials to manage the changes in reimbursement,” said David Finkelstein, Chief Information Officer, The Hebrew Home at Riverdale. “However, our ultimate intention is to have our whole LPC operation running on MatrixCare. This technology is not only vital to helping us succeed under PDPM and value-based care, but also in managing our whole resident lifecycle—as our seniors move from one care-setting to another, having one, integrated personal health record will help us track our customers to ensure we’re providing the highest quality of care in the most efficient manner.”
“The Hebrew Home at Riverdale is a clear leader in providing innovative skilled nursing care within the New York metropolitan area and is well-positioned to successfully pioneer the LPC model there,” said John Damgaard, president & CEO of MatrixCare. “Realizing their high standards for excellence, we’re pleased they chose MatrixCare as the foundation upon which to build their future as they expand their business model under value-based care. We will do everything we can to exceed their expectations for outstanding technology and service.”
MatrixCare enables long-term, post-acute care (LTPAC) organizations to provide better health outcomes for seniors while successfully managing risk in out-of-hospital care delivery. Current and multiyear winner of the Best in KLAS Award for Long-Term Care Software, MatrixCare is trusted by thousands of senior living, skilled nursing, and accountable care organizations; life plan communities; and home health, home care, and hospice agencies.
