Online initiative helps LTACH providers collaborate

Select Medical and Quantia have partnered to create a new online community for healthcare providers serving the long-term acute care hospital (LTACH) market.

The collaboration will create a nationwide web and mobile physician engagement platform where credentialed physicians serving the LTACH market can learn from each other and share clinical information unique to long-term residents and acute-care patients.

“Quantia gives us the opportunity to support clinical collaboration that has a direct impact on the care of our patients,” Samuel Hammerman, MD, chief medical officer of Select Medical’s LTACH Division, said in a press release. “As a member of the QuantiaMD online physician community, I am well aware of the benefits this platform provides. Through this joint effort, Select Medical now offers its affiliated physicians the chance to both learn from and contribute to this active community, with the goal of delivering better care. Offering this service to our providers extends our clinical knowledge base and re-enforces evidence-based treatment strategies.”

Mike Coyne, CEO of Quantia, added: “We are thrilled that Select Medical chose Quantia as a key element of its physician engagement strategy. “By combining its expertise and vision with the engaging format and nationwide reach of our platform, Select Medical is not only inspiring behavior change among its own physicians—it’s having a ripple effect on any physician in the country looking to improve acute care within their practice.”
