Consonus Healthcare Launches Co-Pilot

Co-Pilot is a data analytics and consulting tool developed for skilled Nursing Facilities that creates actionable plans in the face of changing reimbursement models

MILWAUKIE, Ore. – January 7, 2015 – Consonus Healthcare announced today the launch of its newest offering, Co-Pilot. The platform was created to help address the specific needs of skilled nursing facilities in regards to changes that resulted from the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

“It is too bad that it took the passing of the Affordable Care Act to force our industry to take a look in the mirror at how we measure our results,” commented Phil Fogg, president and CEO. “We’ve created Co-Pilot to help our partners do just that because we need to be able to define our value to payers.”

With Co-Pilot, a company’s real-time data is automatically collected and then leveraged to create actionable plans within key pay-for-performance areas such as hospital readmission rates, therapy outcome solutions, customer satisfaction and quality outcomes.

“Over the next five years, there is going to be a disruption to our business model,” commented Fogg. “It’s plain and simple – this data has the ability to help us deliver better care and better care means that our partners perform at a higher level and our industry thrives. A win-win for both the patient and the provider.”
