Loopback Analytics was featured on the Dallas Business Journal to discuss the partnership with Brookdale Senior Living.
Dallas-based Loopback Analytics has partnered with Brookdale Senior Living to implement a Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Health Innovations Challenge grant totaling $7.3 million.
Loopback has also partnered with the University of North Texas Health Science Center and Florida Atlantic University to provide a comprehensive care transition management technology platform, Neil Smiley, president and CEO of Loopback Analytics, told me Wednesday.
Loopback provides software to help health care providers manage patients that are moving from one care setting to another, such as from a hospital to home health.
Innovation Challenge grants are part of the Affordable Care Act.
Loopback’s technology helps companies such as Brookdale, a senior housing provider, better manage patient populations and measure the consistency and quality of patient care.
The company’s cloud-based platform integrates data across health care information systems, letting providers identify at-risk patient populations, match them with appropriate interventions and evaluate the results, Smiley said.
“The model that is being deployed is probably the leading process improvement model in post-acute care,” Smiley said. “We’re now extending that in other care settings where it has not been deployed before, specifically assisted living and the home health areas.”
Loopback’s platform uses dashboard reporting to allow patients and caregivers to stay connected after hospital discharge and through the care continuum, he said.
