NEW YORK – TripleCare will introduce its telehealth services across all the facilities of Commonwealth Care of Roanoke, a provider of senior care.
“We look forward to working closely with CCR to expand the level of quality of care for its patients and help reduce costs relating to hospital readmissions and transfers,” said Dr. Mary Jo Gorman, CEO of TripleCare, in a statement.
CCR provides skilled services, including complex medical care and rehabilitation, and respite and long-term care from 12 post-acute care facilities throughout Virginia.
The first phase of the collaboration will roll out TripleCare’s virtual physician-supported services during the third quarter of 2018 at three CCR facilities: Carriage Hill Health & Rehab Center in Fredericksburg, Va.; Abingdon Health & Rehab Center in Abingdon, Va.; and Radford Health & Rehab Center in Radford, Va. Implementation of services at the remaining nine CCR facilities will be completed by year-end 2018.
“We believe that telemedicine will play an increasingly important role in the post-acute sector in which we operate, and CCR strives to be at the forefront of this sea change,” said Lora Epperly, director of business development and care innovations, at CCR, in a statement.
