Hi, I’m Russ Graney the CEO of Aidin, a web-based referral management system that helps hospitals discharge their patients to nursing homes and home health agencies. The reason I am here today is that all of us, one day, will have to choose a nursing home or a home health agency to care for a loved one. It will be your mom or your dad, or you husband or wife, and they will be sick. And you will be tired and overwhelmed. I know, because I went through this with my uncle. Hospital staff couldn’t tell us which providers were better than others, AND THIS LIST
Of provider names, phone numbers and addresses is all they gave us. Based on this information, honestly, we just chose the provider closest to home. And as a result, my uncle didn’t get the best care and he was one of the
1 in 4 patients readmitted to the hospital from post-acute care.
Today, hospitals are losing $17 billion dollars every year on preventable readmissions, so we need to help them connect their patients with the best post-discharge care possible.
Aidin does just that. Let’s see how hospital discharge planners use Aidin to save time and improve the quality of post-acute care. DEMO First, hospital users enter some basic information about their patients – where they live, what insurance they have, and what kind of care they need post-discharge. Aidin then shares that information with area providers and collects back whether or not they are available to serve this patient. Aidin then provides patients with detailed, customized quality of care information about each of the available providers – including readmission rates, a summary of Medicare data and even patient ratings and reviews. The patient chooses their preferred provider, and the match is complete. DEMO
Legacy players in this space are doing it wrong. Their big contribution is this list my uncle received, and this list reduces post-acute providers’ reputations to a seven digit phone number. With Aidin, hospitals share detailed, patient-specific quality data about their patient’s post-acute options. Let me explain what I mean by patient-specific quality data:
If you are choosing a nursing home because you need wound care after you leave the hospital, you don’t want to base your decision on how that nursing home treats patients with diabetes or Alzheimers. That’s why Aidin filters through available datasets from Medicare as well as our own, propietary data about readmission rates and patient ratings and reviews, to isolate the information that is most relevant for each individual patient.
As a result, hospitals that use Aidin have a tool to match their patients with the provider best-suited to serve their individual needs.
Hospitals gain access to our services through a monthly subscription fee and
And every month, our hospital partners save an average of 145 hours discharging patients, avoid 13 delayed discharges, and push readmissions rates down and patient satisfaction up. All without a single new process, committee, or training day.
We have had the opportunity to work with some of the leading hospital systems up and down the East coast. And by the close of this summer we will be helping 30,000 patients choose their post-acute care. We are also announcing this week that Aidin is now available nationally and we will be selecting a handful of pioneer hospital partners from across the country to expand our footprint.
This is our management team. Janan, our CTO, has over 10 years of development experience. Mike, our COO, is a front-end engineer and started two companies before, and I am a former Bain consultant and previously led a $10 million case management services company.
This is my uncle. When he was readmitted to the hospital, I spent 3 days online, on the phone, on the road gathering information about area providers and that work led us to a better
Aid who kept my uncle out of the hospital ever since.
So please come speak with us about how you can optimize your patient placement workflow while improving the quality of care your loved ones, one day, will receive. Thank you.
