Brightree Panel to Explore Strategies for Innovation
Focus on interoperability and empowering clinicians for better business, better patient outcomes

ATLANTA – July 13, 2017 – Brightree®, a leading provider of cloud-based software to improve clinical and business performance of post-acute care companies, announced it will lead an expert panel examining strategies for innovation with a focus on interoperability and empowering clinicians for better business, better patient outcomes.  This panel will take place at NAHC Financial Management Conference in Hartford, Connecticut, on July 16 at 10:00 a.m. EST.

To better educate home health and hospice providers on how to leverage healthcare technology, Brightree’s upcoming panel, “Strategies for Innovation,” will examine strategies to support alignment with referral sources for improved patient care coordination, to improve agency efficiencies, including staff recruitment and retention, as well as tools to prepare for future government mandates, including value-based care.

Panelists include:

  • Tarrah Lowry-Schreiner, CEO of Sangre de Cristo Hospice and Palliative Care;
  • Paul Pisano, MSPT, GCS, COS-C, CEO of Interim HealthCare of Hartford, Inc.;
  • Nick Knowlton, Brightree VP of Business Development and CommonWell Health Alliance co-founder and former board member;
  • Kerri Harpole, RN, BSN, Brightree clinical specialist; and
  • Melissa Polly, Brightree product marketing director (moderator).

“Even with great relationships with your referral sources, obtaining all of the necessary information on intake can be very difficult,” said Lowry-Schreiner. “Patient-centric interoperability has the ability to improve care from day one, enhance clinician satisfaction and save time through automation.”

“Interoperability is turning a patient’s experience into a smooth transition of care,” said Knowlton. “Improving how information is recorded, sent, received and utilized improves patient outcomes, which is important not only for the patient, but also the provider, as the industry shifts to a value-based reimbursement model.”
