Date:6/12/2012

JACKSON, Miss. and WASHINGTON, June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  American HealthTech (AHT), the Ultimate Connectivity Partner in post-acute care, and the American Health Care Association (AHCA) announce automated connectivity for mutual clients and members, respectively.  With a touch of a button, clients using AHT's software can quickly and seamlessly export clinical data into AHCA's LTC Trend Tracker(sm).    

"Measurement and trending are essential to sustaining a successful quality improvement program such as AHCA's Quality Initiative," says Gov. Mark Parkinson, President and CEO of AHCA. LTC Trend Tracker creates reports to benchmark performance, including survey history, star-ratings, costs, readmissions, resident characteristics, staffing , and more. "Users benefit," says Peggy Connorton, LNHA, marketing manager for LTC Trend Tracker, "because LTC Trend Tracker is the best way to compare regional peers, see where they have advantages, and then market their performance edge to hospitals which are shopping regional markets for the best post-acute providers."

According to Scott Lipman, NHA and Chief Operating Officer of Marrinson Group, Inc., "LTC Trend Tracker from AHCA helps us show a hospital where we excel above regional standards.  Outcomes Reporting from AHT helps us graphically show specifics, like results by diagnosis.  Combined we have a powerful, fact-based package that illustrates how we want to help hospitals avoid readmission penalties.  'We will work with you,' is our message, and it has been well received."

Teresa Chase, President & CEO of AHT added, "Now more than ever, providers must come to the negotiation table with hospitals and bring data.  With Outcomes Reporting from AHT, providers gain real-time efficiencies when positioning their quality, LOS, and readmission performance edge with hospitals.  When you couple Outcomes Reporting with LTC Trend Tracker, the power of data increases exponentially—as providers can compare and contrast competitive advantages among peers to hospitals.  Armed with powerful internal and external peer review data, our mutual clients and members are well prepared for the outcomes-driven world of healthcare."
