Genesis, Kindred announce clinical partnership

Genesis HealthCare and Kindred Healthcare, Inc. are partnering to deliver coordinated care.

The “clinical collaboration” from two of the largest post-acute care providers is billed as an effort to improve quality, outcomes and care transitions across the post-acute continuum.

“Through this collaborative relationship, Kindred and Genesis will build upon our abilities to deliver quality, share best practices and improve care transitions in local markets across all post-acute settings in order to meet patients where and when they need care,” said Benjamin A. Breier, Kindred’s President and CEO in a press release.

Genesis and Kindred will work together to drive patient-centered care through clinical expertise and episode of care statistical information in order to develop evidence-based clinical protocols, quality standards and benchmarks to benefit patients. That includes comprehensive data tracking and analysis on discharges, readmissions and length of stay.

The partnership will not limit, restrict or otherwise interfere with each company’s relationships with other providers, according to the press release.


The collaboration follows Genesis’ announcement late last year it was selling all of its nursing homes.
