Alaris Health Member Centers Partner with RWJBarnabas Health to Lead Care Quality Initiatives

Alaris and RWJBarnabas
Jersey City, NJ, October 18, 2017 – In an effort to continuously enhance post acute services, nine Alaris Health Member Centers were chosen to partner with the 11 hospitals of RWJBarnabas Health, an integrated, comprehensive health system that serves New Jersey communities.

Alaris Health and RWJBarnabas Health share a common commitment to providing exceptional quality care in the local New Jersey communities they serve. The primary objective of the partnership is to track the shared patients between RWJBarnabas and Alaris Health Member Centers and share their data to facilitate communication and ensure a continuum of care. The partnership also aims to expand the services that both providers offer, in turn reducing readmission rates.

“This partnership solidifies the overall success of Alaris Member Health Centers as we continue to be the premier provider in the local communities that we serve,” said Alaris Health Member Centers Regional Vice President of Operations Regina Figueroa. “We’re eager to assist each other in reaching our goals.”

She continued, “The partnership is similar to what other hospital systems have done in that we all want the best for our residents by collaborating and sharing information to provide quality care.”

RWJBarnabas Health’s5 star cms logo 2 decision to partner with Alaris Health Member Centers was in large part due to Alaris Health’s exceptionally high average of 4.8 out of 5 stars, per the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Five-Star Quality Rating System, a method used to assess skilled nursing facilities’ quality of care services. Of any other skilled nursing facility provider selected to partner with RWJBarnabas, Alaris Health has the most, including Alaris Health at Cedar Grove, Essex, The Fountains – South Campus, Hamilton Park, HarborView, Jersey City, Riverton, West Orange and Care Connection Rahway.

Alaris Health at Essex Administrator Jeanne Leus said of the collaboration, “We are both committed to supporting the transition and coordination between acute and post-care setting with the goal of sharing best practices to improve quality of care and life while reducing costs.”
