Online PR News – 15-October-2020 – Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and Annapolis, Maryland – AMS OnSite, Sunshine Care Partners announce partnership in fight against COVID-19.
AMS OnSite and Sunshine Care Partners today announced a new strategic partnership to fight and prevent COVID-19 in nursing homes, while continuing to provide the highest quality of care to those most in need. The new collaboration between AMS OnSite, the nation’s leading infection control and prevention (ICP) clinical practice dedicated exclusively to the long-term care community, and Sunshine Care Partners, an industry-leading chronic care and transitional care management service, offers nursing homes a unique opportunity to address the most pressing infection control and prevention concerns, specifically during the COVID-19 pandemic and the upcoming flu season.
Sterisis, AMS OnSite's most comprehensive ICP program, uses rapid-result PCR testing to test for 37 different respiratory pathogens, including COVID-19. Certified Infection Preventionists work hand-in-hand with nursing facility clinicians to ease their CDC and regulatory burdens while monitoring residents’ health information in real time to stay ahead of potential
outbreaks. Sunshine Care Partners uses a combination of proprietary real-time health record analytics and algorithms to determine the best course of care uniquely tailored to each patient. Combining world-class infection control and prevention practices and state-of-the-art proactive healthcare will give these facilities every tool necessary to combat COVID-19, while improving the outcomes of their residents.
"Our proprietary Social Care Model has become our cornerstone in helping patients fight, not only their physical illnesses, but also the effects of depression and isolation during COVID-19 lockdowns," said Sunshine Care Partners CEO Rusty McMurray. "Too often the patients we serve live in isolation, desperate for contact and connection. Our services and technology give nursing homes the tools to be able to treat both the physical pain and emotional pain residents may feel during these uncertain times.”
G. Ellsworth Harris, Co-founder and CEO of AMS OnSite, added: "In order to protect residents from COVID-19, influenza and a host of other infections, long-term care leaders must prioritize comprehensive infection control and prevention measures, to include frequent testing, sound infection prevention mentorship and infection surveillance methods that leverage real-time health data to stay ahead of outbreaks. Sunshine Care Partners provides the technology, clinical leadership, guidance, confidence and --ultimately -- for the incredible workers and the residents, which they both serve."
AMS OnSite and Sunshine Care Partners’ medical practice programs follow all CDC guidelines and CMS requirements to improve the quality of life of nursing home residents during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
