Strata Health was formed over a decade ago by healthcare and business professionals committed to finding a way of using technology to manage the flow of patients into and across the care continuum. Then, and to this day, caregivers are taken away from caring for patients to coordinate care transitions manually by phone, fax and email. They’re often working with an incomplete picture of their patients’ medical, financial and personal status, and even fewer relevant details about available downstream options. Mistakes are made. Patients, caregivers and the healthcare system all suffer as a result.
Working with healthcare practitioners, clinicians, IT specialists and administrators, Strata Health pioneered the development of powerful software tools that have revolutionized patient flow, benefiting patients, caregivers and system efficiencies alike. Today, our proprietary intelligent referral technology has positive effects right through the care system; we make existing system beds and programs available sooner. Primary care physicians can better match their patient to an available specialist or program; and specialist referrals happen sooner. Wait times for emergency care are cut. Patients move to acute care from the emergency department faster. Patients, when they’re assessed ready for discharge, are provided optimal downstream care sooner. Re-admissions to the ER because of discharge to inappropriate care options are reduced. Caregivers spend less time doing paperwork, and have more time to actually care for their patients.
We judge ourselves by the quality of the organizations and leaders who have chosen to entrust their patient flow management to Strata Health products and consulting. Strata Health Corporate Overview.
