ABILITY Launches SaaS Solution to Aid in Transition of Care


One of the biggest issues in the healthcare world is attempting to get patients the right level of “transition of care” once they leave the hospital, especially when they are dealing with post-acute care. Whether talking about a nursing home, a rehab center or a home health agency, the decision making process when it comes to the transition of care has long caused a number of headaches and a number of heartaches.

ABILITY Networks is trying to reduce the confusion and frustration that comes along with the transition of care, with the launch of new software as a service (SaaS) application. This new SaaS application has been dubbed the ABILITY Illuminate because it “lights up” the transition process in order to make it faster, easier and keep everyone involved more informed.

ABILITY knows that there are times when Hospital case managers are going to be hindered by the lack of information on what they should do when it comes to post-acute providers. While that can be frustrating. The lack of time to best tend to a patient’s needs is infuriating. Using the ABILITY Illuminate, case managers are able to match patients with the facilities that offer up the kind of care the patients need. The solution does more than simply list where a facility is but also provides data, such as where insurance benefits match up with needs, and have the clinical services that should be administered.

“ABILITY is in a unique position to serve all parties involved in the transition of care process,” Bud Meadows, Executive Vice President for ABILITY said in a statement announcing the new solution. “Over the past 10 years we’ve built a nationwide network of over 20,000 acute and post-acute providers. With ABILITY | ILLUMINATE, we’re leveraging the strength of that network in order to improve patient care.”

Using ABILITY, patients and families are able to get more comprehensive information about the post-acute treatments and facilities that are available for them. The solution truly does mean there is no more guess work when talking about transition of care.
