BLOOMINGTON, Minn., June 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MatrixCare®, the highest-ranked and largest long-term post-acute care (LTPAC) technology provider in the United States, announces the General Availability of its CareCommunity™ population care management platform. CareCommunity—the industry’s first truly integrated, spectrum-wide technology platform—is designed to revolutionize how LTPAC providers care for the U.S. senior population while also empowering them to successfully compete in an increasingly challenging healthcare environment.

“MatrixCare is leading the future of long-term care with CareCommunity,” said John Damgaard, President & CEO for MatrixCare. “Just like the x-ray fundamentally changed how doctors diagnose medical conditions, we believe CareCommunity will revolutionize senior care. Our platform eliminates the communications barriers between acute and various non-acute settings to provide a single, e-longitudinal health record that enables the entire care team—everyone from doctors and therapists, to pharmacists and family members—to connect, engage, interact and make informed, real-time care decisions,” he added. “The inevitable result is higher quality scores, increased family and patient satisfaction, lower readmission levels and an enhanced ability to compete in the fee-for-value and alternative payments world.”

While long-term care residents do have acute episodes, 95 percent of their time is typically spent outside of an acute facility’s walls. Yet these LTPAC facilities typically have only a fraction of a senior’s full medical record, which makes it difficult to provide quality care. CareCommunity aggregates all pertinent clinical data from multiple entities involved in the care process—as well as from more than 500 consumer and commercial-grade telehealth devices such as Fitbits, wireless scales, and glucometers—which makes CareCommunity equally suitable for home health agencies providing services to seniors in their homes. By creating a truly integrated and fully connected health record, CareCommunity empowers seniors, their family members and other caregivers to optimize their health and well-being.

MatrixCare’s CareCommunity platform is built on Microsoft Azure, one of the first hyper-scale cloud computing platforms to achieve the HITRUST CSF certification, the most widely recognized security accreditation in health care. MatrixCare will also embed Microsoft Power BI for enhanced data access and analysis, giving CareCommunity customers the data access and insight they need to effectively manage their business.

“MatrixCare environments currently manage a very substantial percentage of the entire US senior population—a responsibility that we take very seriously,” said Damgaard. “With standards-based integrations to MatrixCare and non-MatrixCare environments, CareCommunity eliminates provider/vendor silos and delivers on the promise of person-centric senior care.”
