CHICAGO, Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Morrisey Associates has signed a partnership agreement with Seattle-based Total Living Choices (TLC) that allows Morrisey to sell and sublicense TLC's Care Finder-Pro® discharge networking software. Morrisey will integrate Care Finder-Pro into its Morrisey Concurrent Care Manager™ (MCCM™) software in the coming months.
Morrisey believes Care Finder-Pro, a Web-based solution used to identify post-acute care providers based on patient discharge needs, will provide added value to MCCM customers. Customers will be able to open Care Finder-Pro from MCCM's Discharge Planning module with the click of a button.
Care Finder-Pro is designed to reduce clerical work associated with discharge planning, streamline the discharge planning process and reduce length of stay for patients who require services after they leave the hospital.
"Integrating Care Finder-Pro into MCCM will add significant value for current and future MCCM customers," says Jim Nutter, president of Morrisey. "TLC has been great to work with and we're excited to combine forces with them on this initiative."
"Our goal is to help unburden hospitals from tedious paperwork so they can focus on what really matters – the patients," said Ted Tanase, CEO of TLC. "In this way, TLC and Morrisey have similar business objectives, and we believe that this project is another step toward our mutual goal."
Care Finder-Pro securely stores and manages all patient documentation electronically and can be customized to each hospital's requirements. Once patients have selected post-acute providers, notifying all providers that the case is closed is just a click away. Patients' physicians are notified of patients' facility choices, and will receive management reports on provider and planner activity.
