DALLAS – June 9, 2015 - Los Angeles-based Partners in Care Foundation (Partners) has earned a one-year renewal for two of its community-based care transition programs (CCTP), Westside and Glendale, with the help of patient data and streamlined care coordination workflows enabled by the Loopback Analytics platform.

Partners’ Westside CCTP supports patients from three hospitals, representing two hospital systems, while the Glendale CCTP supports patients from three hospitals, representing two systems. A team of more than 20 Partners health coaches provide a variety of care transition services, such as medication inventory assistance, to patients. All of these services work in concert, supported by Loopback Analytics robust workflow, data reporting and support services. The collaboration of Partners and Loopback Analytics has resulted in reduced hospital re-admission rates within the communities served.

“We truly see the Loopback system as a winner,” said June Simmons, CEO and president of Partners in Care. “Our success is due in no small part to the great support the Loopback team and systems have provided, and we are so deeply appreciative of the partnership we have built together. We look forward to building on this success moving forward.”

“June and her team at Partners in Care have done an outstanding job of implementing efficient programs that reach an increasing number of patients each month with demonstrated efficacy,” said Loopback Analytics President and CEO Neil Smiley. “We’re very pleased to provide the technology platform that enables Partners to have such a tremendous impact in the community and on the care continuum itself.”

The Loopback platform enables Partners health coaches to engage with at-risk individuals quickly and easily across the area to provide timely assistance. By streamlining care transition workflows, the Loopback platform also provides unprecedented insight into program fidelity through closed-loop feedback and analytics.

Robust reporting enables the organization to effectively communicate success metrics to their referring hospitals, while tactical reporting provides health coaches with proven, streamlined protocols for care coordination. This continuous feedback-learning loop allows Partners to continuously gauge program effectiveness, make adjustments and continuously improve its service offering.

The Loopback platform is designed for use by health systems, post-acute care providers and community coalitions to reduce re-admission rates and associated penalties, promote accountability and efficiency, and maximize shared savings programs among participating providers. By streamlining care transition workflows, the Loopback platform can also provide unprecedented insight into patient outcomes across a network, in addition to program fidelity measurement that enables continuous improvement.
