RFP Title: Reverse Access Center Software Implementation

We are expecting to create a more efficient patient placement experience by having the visibility of open beds at skilled nursing facilities (SNF), assisted living, hospice, and acute inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRF). This would also provide an efficient coordination of care with home health care agencies. Care managers would be able to pair patients with Post-Acute Care (PAC) providers based on payer source and preferred location. The patient referral and response would be transmitted electronically eliminating the use of paper referrals and reducing time waiting on patient placement requests. The software platform would also allow for visibility of the patient's condition to determine which site would be best suited for their clinical needs. This High-Level Solution Requirements section is a narrative describing some high-level business needs. Vendor responses should address these in the format specified in Section 3.4 Part 1: Response to Requirements. 

Implement a tracking system that would facilitate PAC referrals to a Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF), Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRF), Hospice, and Home Care by centralized care coordination. Establish a care management system that would reduce referred-to-accepted time. Create an increased percentage of UMMS patients in PAC services.
