Palo Alto, CA – SAIVA announced today a grant program to support the adoption of machine learning to reduce rehospitalization for long-term and post-acute care providers.

Applying machine learning, also referred to as artificial intelligence, to inform clinical practice is relatively new to the post-acute care sector but promises to have dramatic impact on patient outcomes. By linking data from a skilled nursing center’s EHR data and applying AI, acute episodes can be predicted and avoided—allowing for greater continuity of care, reduced hospitalization rates, and better clinical and operational outcomes.

The grant opportunity is open broadly to legally incorporated provider organizations, partnerships or private corporations organized on a for-profit or non-profit basis involved in long term and post-acute care in the United States. The project period is approximately 3 months throughout which SAIVA will provide technology, consulting services, implementation, training, and support.

Interested skilled nursing entities are encouraged to apply by the grant deadline of September 28, 2020.
