    "Aidin helped us completely rethink our relationship with the post acute market. By creating healthy auctions for each care transition we quickly achieved our financial and quality goals."

Client

Houston Methodist Hospital located in Houston Texas is an internationally recognized quaternary care center providing care to over 37,000 inpatients annually.

Situation

Houston Methodist Hospital faced acute capacity challenges on a daily basis. Hospital leaders knew that streamlining patient transitions would create the inpatient capacity necessary to better serve their growing community.

Action

Houston Methodist contracted with Aidin to use its care transition management tool across the entire hospital. Hospital staff used Aidin to create healthy auctions for post acute care. Post acute providers responded faster than ever before and were evaluated in real-time by Aidin. Aidin provided staff and patients with quality performance summaries at the bedside. Staff and patients made more rapid and informed decisions on where to receive care.
