"The Referral Management System has
changed the game in our census and revenue. We've realized
significant gains by responding to referrals faster and more
thoroughly… We're enjoying a very productive partnership with
Patient Placement Systems."
- Gregg Hopper, Corporate
Director Business Development, Greystone Healthcare Management
Patient Placement Systems provides Web-based software that helps
hospitals and post-acute care providers share and respond to
patient referrals electronically. In 2007, PPS launched the
Web-based Referral Management System to automate and accelerate the
referral, admissions and marketing processes for skilled nursing
facilities. PPS applies a philosophy involving collaboration,
honesty, integrity and commitment to achieve results.
Three key areas reflect the PPS commitment to its clients:
proven results with satisfied customers, innovative software
solutions that are the best in the industry and productive
partnerships that go beyond merely superior technology and services
to deliver continuous value and satisfaction.
Patient Placement Systems replaces mounds of
paperwork with fast, low-cost online admissions and referral
management. Hospitals eliminate delayed discharges, and
long-term care providers respond immediately to referral inquiries,
accepting more patients, faster.
In addition to expediting the referral and
admissions of patients, the Referral Management System
increases revenue and profitability by admitting more patients
with a more desirable case mix, with less cost and greater
efficiency. Average referral response times improved from 30
minutes to eight minutes with RMS. It markets skilled
nursing facilities more effectively, measures success and
provides business intelligence that skilled nursing facilities
need to market smarter and manage quality census.
Hospitals use the Web-based Discharge
Referral System to streamline discharge planning. Patient placement
is accelerated with conversion of faxed referral documents to
electronic ones, expedited insurance verification and analysis of
patient discharge referral activity securely online.
"We're committed to delivering even
more value for our customers tomorrow than we did today,
continuously innovating new ways to help our healthcare provider
partners manage referrals, placements and admissions faster and
