Elderwood joins HEALTHeLINK

HEALTHeLINK today announced Elderwood is the latest long term care facility to participate in Western New York’s clinical information exchange.  This includes Elderwood’s 12 local assisted living and skilled nursing facilities located in Amherst, Cheektowaga, Grand Island, Hamburg, Lancaster, West Seneca, Wheatfield and Williamsville.

“Having access to one’s latest test results, medication history and other current clinical information provide treating physicians with a more complete medical picture on the patient they are treating. This is especially important when a patient transitions from one health care setting to another,” said Dan Porreca, executive director, HEALTHeLINK. “With this information readily and securely available, physicians can provide more timely and effective treatment at the point of care.”

Elderwood joins the more than 3,400 physicians, all of the area hospitals, and many other long term care and health care organizations that are utilizing HEALTHeLINK to improve the quality of care, enhance patient safety and reduce health care costs.

“Elderwood is committed to leveraging technology in ways that can help our residents and patients,” said Anna Bojarczuk-Foy, director of business development, Elderwood. “Our doctors and nurses already use an integrated medical records system; HEALTHeLINK adds an additional format to help physicians and patients access medical information.”

Elderwood has grown to become the largest network of rehabilitation, skilled nursing, assisted living and independent living communities in Western New York, with 17 facilities, 2,800 beds and 4,000 employees. Elderwood’s continuum of care also includes advanced specialized services in oncology, cardiac rehabilitation, ventilator care, IV therapy and wound care. For more information visit elderwood.com.
