CAREASCEND EARNS AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN TECHNOLOGYOctober 14, 2019
Signature HealthCARE is honored to earn the Silver Award in the McKnight’s Long-Term Care News Excellence in Technology award competition.
The award was earned in the High-Tech, High-Touch category, which honors communities who have implemented a technology that improves team interactions to enhance care of residents and patients. Signature HealthCARE was recognized for their digital platform, CareAscend.
CareAscend helps post-acute and long-term care providers engage with their medical directors to assure full compliance with various regulations. CareAscend is a collaboration between Signature HealthCARE and MavenSphere.
The digital application is the first in the industry to address the important issue of medical director engagement by setting systems for their seamless connection with facility leadership regarding key activities such as quality assurance, staff education, and many other critical tasks. The application provides medical director training resources including on-boarding and ongoing education.
“Engaging post-acute medical directors more, to enhance their partnerships with facility leaders is one area that just has not been addressed before,” Dr. Arif Nazir, Chief Medical Officer of Signature HealthCARE, said. “With CareAscend, we are seeing an improvement in medical directors’ involvement in skilled facilities’ strategic and quality improvement aspects, an approach which is a must for the value-based systems including PDPM.”
Signature HealthCARE is excited to earn an award in the McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Awards for the second year. In 2015, they were honored for their Spirituality pillar in the innovation category.
