Serving the communities of Southeastern Virginia with an integrated delivery network of hospitals, surgery centers, retirement communities, assisted-living facilities, long-term care facilities, physician practice locations and other services, RHS deployed the Curaspan eDischarge™ software-as-a-service (SaaS) application as its platform for enhancing communication, operations and care network-wide.

"We look across the system, at all the facilities, and we see the whole pie -- not just one slice," said Dawn Kowalski, operations manager for Riverside Health System. "We could not do this without Curaspan." The RHS collaboration with Curaspan is detailed in a new case study, Riverside Health System Knocks Down IT Silos, Builds New Model of Care Facilitation.

"It's the patient that counts, not a building," added Melody Livengood, RN, MSN, director of care facilitation at RHS. "We're looking at what's best for the patient."

Built with clinical expertise from case managers, discharge planners and social workers, Curaspan SaaS applications empower users with actionable data to help streamline the patient-transition process, improve the quality of care, and by extension, the bottom line.

"We're very pleased that our partnership with Riverside is contributing to demonstrable benefits with quantifiable results for the system and its patients," said Thomas R. Ferry, president and CEO of Curaspan.

Curaspan works with many of the nation's top hospitals and post-acute care providers including Johns Hopkins Health System, New York Presbyterian, St. Thomas Health Services (part of Ascension Health), Vanguard Health Systems, Amedisys Home Health Services, American Medical Response, Gentiva Health Services, Golden LivingCenters, Kindred Healthcare, Life Care Centers of America and Sunbridge Health, among many others.
