Who We Serve
Coordinated, High-Quality Care
Transparency, Communication & Shared Decision Making
Transparent communications between a connected and collaborative community care team regarding the patient’s prognosis, care options and goals lead to better-informed decision making, care plan clarity, and consistent follow-through. Such communications lead to lower costs, a lighter family burden, and an improved and more manageable patient/family experience.
Acclivity provides a Connected Care Platform that brings together clinical management and patient engagement across the health care continuum by connecting the care community to empower patients to live their lives to the fullest, surrounded by family, friends and a multidisciplinary care team so that they might meet death with a sense of comfort and dignity.
Primary Care Providers
Because of the close relationship that primary care physicians often have with their patients, they are in a unique position to provide end-of-life care, which includes recognizing the need for and recommending hospice care when appropriate. Timely referrals are beneficial to both patient and hospice because of the cost related to initiating services and the time required to form a therapeutic relationship. Once the decision to refer to hospice is made, the family physician typically continues to be the patient’s primary attending physician.
Acclivity provides services to identify which patients statistically carry the highest risk and manage provider workflow to allocate the necessary resources to those patients who need immediate intervention to head off an emergent visit outside of the practice
- Confidently identify the population that needs the most supportive care.
- Effectively manage performance indicators that relate to the bonus structures within Managed Care contracts.
- Transition costliest patients to hospice providers who are better equipped and reimbursed to deliver appropriate care.
- Securely connect and collaborate with various disciplines in the care team to provide appropriate and timely services to their shared patient population.
Accountable Care Organizations (ACO)
Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are groups of local health care providers and hospitals who volunteer to work together to provide patients with coordinated care. They aim to minimize costs for patients, especially those facing serious illnesses, by offering them efficient and timely care and avoiding unnecessary duplication of services in the process. In addition, ACOs create an incentive to be more efficient by offering bonuses to providers who keep costs down.
With data analytics, workflows, machine learning, and patient and family education tools, the Acclivity Connected Care Platform transforms what has historically been a fragmented, uncoordinated care approach to a connected, collaborative, community-based care model based with complete transparency.
- Better care for patients, especially those with chronic disease.
- Less waste in the Medicare system.
- Physician-driven treatment.
- Financial incentives for successful ACOs.
Hospice is built around the key concept that the dying patient has physical, psychological, social, and spiritual aspects of suffering. Hospice is a philosophy, not a specific place, and can be provided in any setting, including patients’ homes, nursing homes, and hospitals.
The core structure of hospice includes an interdisciplinary team that provides access to a wide range of services to support the primary caregiver, who is responsible for the majority of the patient care.
- Part of a connected community of care where hospice is an essential member of the care team, central to patients’ journeys.
- Patients for whom hospice or palliative care is appropriate are identified earlier in the care trajectory, and referred for these services at the optimal time.
- Maximize the time allowed by the hospice benefit and provide symptom relief and pain control for the patient and their care givers.
