National Transitions of Care Coalition Adds Healthcare IT Innovations Task Force Member
Date:12/10/2013

(PRWEB) December 10, 2013

The National Transitions of Care Coalition (NTOCC), an organization dedicated to improving patient transitions throughout the healthcare system, has added a member to its recently established Healthcare IT Innovations Task Force. Vree Health, a provider of technologies that meet the needs of health care providers, payers, and consumers, is the third member of the newly formed group. The Health IT Innovations Task Force initiative and its two founding members, RightCare Solutions and Ankota, were announced in October 2013.

Cheri Lattimer, RN, BSN, NTOCC Executive Director, remarked, “We are pleased to welcome a third member to this exciting Task Force. Managing transitions of care requires new and innovative technologies, and Vree Health, along with our two founding members, combine to create a powerful and innovative team with which NTOCC can partner to consider transitions of care innovations and improvements.”

In bringing together healthcare technology thought leaders who offer new, innovative or emerging solutions for care transitions challenges, NTOCC and Task Force members work toward the shared vision of advancing transitions of care (TOC) issues and improving patient outcomes and care quality. This complementary and diverse group utilizes their expertise in creating TOC solutions to collaborate with the NTOCC Board of Directors and Health Information Technology (HIT) Workgroup, identifying existing gaps in HIT and considering solutions to help eliminate barriers to improved transitions.

“Vree Health is proud to join the NTOCC Healthcare IT Innovations task force and contribute to the NTOCC’s efforts in facilitating improved coordination of care teams and quality of care for patients. We believe that innovative use of technology and data are important components in driving efficiencies in our healthcare system and can help facilitate effective approaches for enhancing patient engagement and inspiring positive behavioral changes,” says Kyle Dolbow, President of Vree Health.

The Healthcare IT Innovations Task Force is open to technology companies focused on care transitions; for additional information, contact NTOCC by visiting http://www.ntocc.org/ContactUs.aspx.

About the National Transition of Care Coalition
The National Transitions of Care Coalition is a 501(c)(4) dedicated to addressing a serious U.S. healthcare issue: filling the gaps that occur when patients leave one care setting and move to another care setting. These transitions include patients moving from primary care to specialty physicians; moving or transferring patients from the emergency department to intensive care or surgery; or when patients are discharged from the hospital to home, assisted living arrangements, or skilled nursing facilities. Working in conjunction with 450 Associate Member organizations and over 4,000 individual professional subscribers, NTOCC has developed tools and resources made available to everyone in the healthcare industry including providers, payors, patients and consumers.
