LTPAC leader joins growing list of providers upgrading to MatrixCare
BLOOMINGTON, MN – MatrixCare®, the largest long-term, post-acute care (LTPAC) technology provider in the United States and perennial winner of the coveted Best in KLAS award for Long-Term Care software, has been selected as National HealthCare Corporation’s enterprise EHR platform partner. MatrixCare will initially be rolled out to all National HealthCare Corporation (NHC) corporate and skilled nursing locations across its regions of operation.
NHC has a long-standing track record of success in providing high-quality care through a broad spectrum of large-scale LTPAC services. However, as the organization looked forward, it determined it needed to upgrade its information technology capabilities to be able to continue its track record of success as the industry shifts to fee-for-value reimbursement.
“We conducted a thorough review of available options and concluded that MatrixCare’s products and strategies align very well with our goals and objectives,” said Steve Flatt, CEO of NHC. “Their willingness to share risk and reward based on patient-centered quality and success criteria creates a true partnership and leverages technology in new ways to better serve our patients and residents. The NHC team is very excited to move forward with MatrixCare as our partner.”
NHC joins the growing list of leading LTPAC providers upgrading to MatrixCare to take advantage of better interoperability, better ease of use, better analytics, better service, better long-term vendor stability, and better outcomes performance.
“The LTPAC industry continues the journey to value-based care with leading organizations employing regionally focused, fully integrated delivery systems well positioned to assume and manage risk in care delivery,” added John Damgaard, president and CEO of MatrixCare. “NHC is a world-class organization with a great reputation, strong leadership, and a culture of caring. We are honored to partner with NHC to provide them with Best in KLAS technologies to power their next chapter of success in this evolving industry.”
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.
