Assisted Living Locators, the nation’s first senior care housing referral service, recognizes the dedication, compassion, and patient care outcomes achieved by hospital and rehab case managers. The Company provides expert advice on short-term and long-term senior care options to case managers, and serves as an effective resource to improve patient outcomes from hospitals and rehabsto home or other care settings to reduce re-admissions.
Assisted Living Locators was the only eldercare placement referral service to exhibit and provide support at the 27th Annual Case Management Society of America (CMSA) Conference & Expo, the premier educational conference for case management professionals, held this past June, in Austin, TX.
As we all try to grasp and navigate today’s healthcare system,Assisted Living LocatorsSenior Care Advisors work with case managers to help patients chart a course to better health. Our goal is to improve the care transition path and outcome. Hospitals that utilize our service have seen a reduction in readmission rates because we place elderly patients in the proper care environment.We match patient’s needs with the capabilities of fully vetted care communities that meet or surpass required licensing.
According to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, hospitalizations account for nearly one-third of the total $2 trillion spent on healthcare in the United States, and a substantial fraction of these are avoidable patient readmissions.
It takes a village to reduce hospital readmissions.No one provider or health care system can do it alone. Assisted Living Locators’ expertise in transforming the continuum of care and providing on-going supportresults in post-discharge care quality, smooth care transition and reduced costly re-hospitalizations. Case workers have a demanding job and are an essential part of care coordination and improved outcomes in healthcare.We recognize the dedication of our local case managers and are ready to help them find assisted living, independent living and memory care communities that meettheir patients’care needs. And best of all, Assisted Living Locators’ service is provided free of charge to the hospital, rehab and patientand family as we are compensated by our network of care providers.
