Van Dyk Invests In Key Resources To Prepare For Healthcare Reform
Date:5/15/2013

RIDGEWOOD, N.J., May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Van Dyk Health Care, Inc. announces investments in key new resources as part of its preparation for Accountable Care Act legislation (also known as health care reform). The company has promoted Pam Tokarczuk into a newly formed role of Post-Acute Corporate Director and has invested in new clinical technology across its clinical and managerial teams. Both initiatives are in support of the company's commitment to enhance collaboration with hospitals and other referral partners.

"Success in healthcare reform is predicated on creating technology-enabled, proactive care teams, coupled with informed patients who are more engaged in their own care," said Robert Van Dyk , president and CEO of Van Dyk Health Care. "Our investments enable us to strategically align resources to achieve quality in all areas – from forming deeper collaborations with hospitals, avoiding unnecessary rehospitalizations and creating the most positive patient experiences."

To that end, Pam Tokarczuk , previously assistant administrator at the Van Dyk Ridgewood facility, will oversee quality and consistency of post-acute care services across the Ridgewood, Montclair and Hawthorne facilities. She will coordinate data and clinical outcomes surrounding hospital re-admissions, the HeartWays cardiac program, as well as oversee nurse education. All of these initiatives work in tandem with adhering to federal, state and local standards and regulations that govern the long-term care industry to ensure that the highest quality care is maintained at all times.

Van Dyk has also invested in technology that enables the Van Dyk care teams to assess patient/resident health in real-time. The tool, called Daylight-IQ, enables hospitals and physicians to login and see patient health status, collaborating with the Van Dyk clinical team on appropriate next steps in patient care planning. This, coupled with the use of state-of-the-art electronics, tablets and laptops, empowers Van Dyk's health/medical teams to monitor patient care at all times and from anywhere within the facility.

Van Dyk Health Care, which has been a mainstay in the Northern New Jersey community for over 60 years, continues to evolve rapidly to meet new ACA requirements.

"Our industry has changed completely since our inception 60 years ago," said Van Dyk. "This is no longer your grandmother's nursing home. Today, we provide complex care services, like cardiac rehab, infusion therapy and specialized orthopedic rehab to name just a few, all aimed at getting patients back home to their families safely and effectively."
