Toronto Grace uses tech for patient transitions
June 12, 2019
TORONTO – Mavencare, a home-care technology company, has announced a partnership with The Salvation Army Toronto Grace Health Centre, a 119-bed hospital located in the heart of downtown Toronto. With a focus on managing patients with multiple medical issues requiring complex care, Toronto Grace has recognized the benefit of Mavencare’s technology-enabled home service to promote better communication and prevent avoidable hospital readmissions during the post-acute transition interval.
Mavencare’s proprietary technology matches patients with heavily vetted caregivers specific to their care needs, and the app houses all communication between caregivers, families, the hospital healthcare team and Mavencare’s clinical team. The company’s intelligent notification system uses predictive analytics to identify any potential issues from caregiver-reported data, and as a result, prevents avoidable adverse health events, including hospital readmissions.
“There is such a strong need for health solutions by way of innovation, especially for patients once they leave the hospital,” said Jake Tran (pictured), president and CEO at The Salvation Army Toronto Grace Health Centre. “During the early transition period, it’s critical that our clinicians stay connected and receive timely updates of any early emerging problems that we might preemptively address before they become serious enough to require going to the emergency department.
“As the Ontario government moves toward a system that embraces technology-driven solutions in healthcare, we are working with Mavencare to align with this direction through improved connectivity and communication with discharged patients.”
“Toronto Grace has always been progressive and innovative with their approach to post-acute rehabilitation. We are excited to work with their team to promote effective and safe community transitions,” said Dr. Adam Blackman, CEO of Mavencare. “We are confident that our monitoring and predictive analytics will extend their team’s capability to transition more patients back to their homes.”
Mavencare provides services in Toronto, New York City and the Greater Boston area. For more information or to learn about the benefits of partnering with Mavencare please visit https://mavencare.com.
