Join Oak Street Health’s Tej Motiwala and Jacquelyn Georgen as they discuss with Olio’s Ben Forrest how they brought together 245 skilled nursing facilities and home health agencies across Indiana to jointly co-manage their shared patients.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • Oak Street Health’s transitional care program and efforts to improve post-acute care outcomes
  • Olio’s approach to facilitating bi-directional communication and collaborative discharge planning to seamlessly reconnect patients back to their primary care provide
  • The role of social work to proactively resolve social barriers to discharge to reduce length of stay and readmission rate
  • The importance of building strong, cross-continuum relationships with post-acute partners

Why it’s important

Post-acute care teams play a critical role in patient outcomes. Unfortunately, for care providers like Oak Street Health, the high volume of patients across post-acute care locations, including skilled nursing facilities and home health sites, combined with a vast partner network, presents a unique challenge in organizing, coordinating, and communicating across the continuum of care.

To deliver the best care outcomes for its patients and effectively support its network of care sites and partners, Oak Street Health, a network of value-based primary care centers for adults on Medicare, turned to Olio to solve this exact problem. Using Olio, Oak Street Health scaled engagement across 245 post-acute locations, reached a ratio of one Oak Street Health team member to every 99 post-acute users, and reduced readmissions for its patients.

Results Include:

  • 4x engagement per week per patient
  • 99:1 OSH to Post-Acute User Ratio
  • <10% RTA from SNF
  • 4 Day Decrease in SNF LOS
  • 7x ROI

"You just won’t believe how much better it can be. The chaos that you normally deal with on a day to day basis becomes order. And the time savings back to you is that time that you can give back to your patients and their care.

You will truly see improvement overall in health outcomes that you didn’t know were even a possibility.”

“We have one full-time employee that monitors patients in Olio across our 45 SNF network. We had $548,000 in estimated savings and have seen an 8.9 day drop in length of stay, just in the first quarter.

Olio has allowed real-time communication and interactive management of our ACO patients across all of those facilities.”

Lori Sieboldt, MD

Medical Director of Population Health

Deaconess Health System

“With Olio, providers can have insight on how their patient is progressing in post-acute care and the barriers to discharge. We’re giving instant feedback to our hospitals, which has been important for continuity of care and reduced hospitalizations."

Chad Miller

VP of Business Development and Sales

American Senior Communities

“I’d absolutely recommend Olio. The hospital is invested in the program and they are strong partners in reducing our rehospitalizations. Cooperating through Olio is a wonderful way to strengthen relationships and improve our ACO metrics.”

“My experience with Olio has been very positive and truly has exceeded my expectations. Not only is the software communication tool -- It's real! It works! -- it does reduce the burden of miscommunications and slow communications.”

“We have seen our length of stay decrease significantly and our readmission rate dropped to single digits, which is almost unheard of. We're certainly seeing economic advantages to partnering with Olio.”
