Advanced Health Institute announced on September 19th, 2018 its merger with primary care leaders, Long Term Care Professionals/Pros.
Advanced Health Institute is cutting-edge technology and outcomes organization merges with Long Term Care Professionals to enhance (or strengthen) the healthcare continuum and people they serve.
Kurt Larson, President of Advanced Health Institute announced earlier this month it has joined forces with Long Term Care Professionals as part of their mission to enhance the healthcare continuum in the Post-Acute space. “Merging these two organizations will not only alleviate the patient care experience, it will help expand our mission to empower, guide and improve the healthcare system. This merger also provides a unique, synergistic and complimentary benefit to patients, residents and organizations that both companies continue to serve.”
Principles from Long Term Care Professionals stated "LTC Professionals has been committed to providing high quality medical care services and we are excited about our new relationship with AHI which will allow us to continue to expand, develop new models of care and develop deep meaningful relationships with patients, families and facilities to navigate the complex medical continuum. The additional services we will be able to provide will continue to enhance the quality of care and quality of life of the people we serve. The addition of primary care to the team will continue to integrate care delivery to provide efficient, effective and high quality care."
This merger comes at a perfect time in conjunction with the recent updates from Center for Medicare/Medicaid regarding Skilled Nursing Facilities in Value Based Purchasing. Value Based Purchasing is capturing unplanned readmission rates and organizations may sometimes feel overwhelmed with new rules and regulations. AHI can assist in navigating this unfamiliar model as they are not only adding additional providers, but an emphasis on Primary Care.
From surveying, offering consultation services, or by adding the primary care team, Advanced Health Institute stands by its core values and mission statement: Leading the health industry in information, technology and outcomes. By enhancing AHI’s breadth of services, the organization will feel complete, supported and heard. The blend between consultation services, from the patient, to families, owners, administrators, clinical teams and support is a cutting-edge approach to healthcare.
