Date:10/1/2010

DALLAS, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital has selected Dallas-based Loopback Communications' technology-leading Readmission Reduction™ solution to support its efforts to reduce readmissions of discharged patients.

"DMC Sinai-Grace is committed to continuous quality improvement and patient outcomes," says Katie Flannigan M. S. PA-C, an administrative director for the hospital and special assistant to the president. "We were one of the first hospitals to participate in the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's (IHI) State Action on Avoidable Rehospitalizations (MI STAAR) initiative. Through the initiative, we have experienced tremendous success in reducing 30-day readmissions for patients with heart failure.  In fact, we were just recognized by the IHI for our achievement in impacting the heart failure readmission rate by 30% this past year.

"Loopback's unique technology-based solutions will help us incorporate best practices for the assessment of individual patient risk for readmission and post-discharge follow-up," explains Flannigan. "By connecting with our patients post discharge on a regular basis, we want to provide support and guidance, along with their physician, so that the patients can manage their conditions at home."

"We are excited to partner with highly-respected DMC Sinai-Grace to improve patient outcomes by working with care coordinators to close the loop with discharged patients," says Neil Smiley, Loopback Communications CEO.

"We are particularly focused on reducing readmissions for several diagnoses," says Mike Prusaitis, CFO of SGH. "We know readmissions add costs to the entire health care system, so, we hope to save money by avoiding these costly, avoidable readmissions."
