HomeCare Connect announced a new program to help workers’ compensation carriers and third-party administrators anticipate costs and guide decisions about where to send injured workers who are discharged from a hospital and need skilled care that can’t be provided at home.

The company said that as part of its Post-Acute Care Connect program, it developed and credentialed a network of more than 15,000 facilities with various specialties, including spinal cord or traumatic brain injuries, physical rehabilitation and wound care.

Program coordinators identify the most appropriate facility, provide a treatment plan and monitor ongoing treatment, sending weekly updates to claims representatives, the Winter Park, Florida-based company said in a statement.

PACC coordinators also manage discharge planning and coordinate all medical equipment, supplies and home modification needs so the injured worker goes home to a safe and functional environment.

“With PACC, injured workers receive high-quality care and thorough communication throughout the entire process,” Managing Partner Teresa Williams said in a statement. “Payers reduce costs by avoiding extended hospital stays while searching for a step-down unit and from our pre-negotiated rates and invoice reviews that ensure the rates and services are appropriate.”
