New Solutions for Improving Outcomes and Satisfaction, Reducing Readmissions
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lincor Solutions Inc. today announced the launch of a new portfolio of products for delivering its industry-leading patient engagement technology to hospitals and health systems. Powered by next-generation technology that provides access to clinical, administrative and entertainment systems within a single platform, Lincor's LINC product portfolio offers a range of easy-to-implement solutions for increasing patient satisfaction scores, improving clinical outcomes, reducing unnecessary readmissions and facilitating electronic health record (EHR) adoption.
New links between hospitals' Medicare reimbursement and their performance on patient satisfaction surveys, readmission rates and the Meaningful Use of EHRs have made patient engagement a financial imperative. In the first year of the Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program, for example, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services charged 2,213 hospitals about $280 million for excess readmissions.
"Lincor is dedicated to empowering patients by giving them the tools and technology to become engaged in and informed about their care. Given the new reimbursement environment, we understand there's a lot at stake for hospitals," said Lincor CEO Richard Cooke. "Our new products provide a range of user-friendly solutions that can be adopted individually, or combined, to meet hospitals' unique goals around HCAHPS scores, readmission reduction, and technology adoption."
The LINC product portfolio includes four distinct products:
LINC Technology Upgrades
The LINC product portfolio is powered by the company's industry leading LINC Technology, which has already been adopted by more than 120 hospitals around the world. With the launch of the LINC product portfolio, Lincor has introduced a redesigned "look and feel" for its patient engagement software.
"Today's consumers are accustomed to sleek, highly responsive touch-screen technology," said Lincor Founder and Executive Vice President of Products Enda Murphy. "Particularly in our PatientLINC and MobileLINC products, we want to make sure patients experience the same level of responsiveness they are used to getting from their personal mobile devices."
