CareOne LTAC Hospitals Complete Optimum Implementation

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- NTT DATA, Inc., a leading business and IT services provider, announced that CareOne LTAC Hospitals has renewed their multi-year commitment to the use of the Optimum Clinicals suite in all three of their facilities. With the recent go-live of Computerized Provider Order Entry and Electronic Medication Administration Record in these facilities, CareOne LTAC Hospitals has now fully implemented the Optimum Clinicals Suite including Pharmacy and Clinical Documentation as well as the continued use of Optimum RCM for patient billing and HIM.

This full suite of software is configured and hosted in one of NTT DATA’s state-of-the-art secure data centers and fully supported by 24/7/365 support services, thus helping CareOne to save significant time and money. CareOne’s use of the Optimum Suite has allowed them to improve the quality and efficiencies of their care, improve reporting and compliance in support of the changes in the long-term acute care hospital (LTACH) market, and be a stronger partner to other participants in the continuum of care.

NTT DATA has been working since 2013 to develop additional software applications to provide the LTACH market with specialty electronic health record (EHR) solutions. From the CARE Data Set reporting tools to the new Referral Portal for intake liaisons, NTT DATA is well positioned to provide this market with the necessary tools for the changes coming from CMS.

“We started three years ago on a path to improve our LTACH quality of care, operations and efficiencies. Working with the NTT DATA team and its Optimum platform, we rapidly migrated RCM billing in the first few months and we now have fully operational Electronic Health Record (EHR) solution across our three LTACHs,” said Sharon Bready CEO, CareOne LTAC Hospitals. “The support of NTT DATA along the way has made the difference in success versus failure. We are happy with the support and response services provided by the NTT DATA team.”

“Our commitment to the long-term post-acute provider community continues, as evidenced by successful implementations at organizations such as CareOne LTAC. A successful implementation takes an organization-wide commitment, and we are proud of what CareOne LTAC has accomplished and look forward to a continued partnership to address their unique needs,” said Mike Jones, senior vice president of Healthcare & Life Sciences, NTT DATA, Inc.
