Silver Planet is Committed to Improving the Quality of Health Care for Baby Boomers and Seniors
New site and services help providers meet the challenges of healthcare reform
Seattle, WA – January 5, 2012 Silver Planet, Inc. is expanding its senior services and launching an accompanying website, SilverPlanetConcierge.com. New services include customized Care Transition programs for healthcare providers and others serving the needs of seniors. “Working with hospitals, clinics and other community care providers allows us to serve a much larger and more diverse population,” says Silver Planet CEO Karen Klein.
Healthcare reform is pushing providers to improve the quality of care while reducing costs to consumers, insurance companies and government agencies such as Medicare and Medicaid. They are also increasingly responsible for an individual’s continued health as they transition from one care setting to another, including the home. Silver Planet Concierge Services specifically addresses the gaps between these care settings by assessing individuals’ risk factors, coaching understanding and healthy behavior, and connecting patients, caregivers, doctors, and others to form a continuum of care. Silver Planet’s services provide seniors with the knowledge, skills and confidence to take an active role in maintaining and improving their health. Enabling the patients to manage their own healthcare leads to better outcomes and reduced healthcare costs.
Silver Planet’s Concierge Services
- Assessment, recommendation and referrals from licensed social workers and nurses
- Medication reconciliation
- Collaboration with the community’s stakeholders, both public and private
- Partnerships with home care services, doctor, psychologists, social workers and nutritionists
- Utilize cloud technology to create a personal, portable health record for each individual
- Effective coordination and information of sharing during care transitions
Klein points out the current fragmented healthcare system is a big part of the problem, leaving individuals to fend for themselves as they move between care settings, and making them vulnerable to avoidable relapses, complications and re-hospitalizations.
