NexusConnexions has been utilized successfully by acute and post-acute providers to avoid unnecessary expenses and penalties by addressing the needs of the patients living outside direct medical care. The patent pending technology of NexusConnexions automatically assembles an agenda for each patient interaction that is specific to the diagnosis, chronic-conditions, and psycho-social characteristics of the patients. NexusConnexions also offers examples of dialogue suggestions and short videos corresponding to each communication activity, allowing users to opt for the tactics that have already influenced a patient’s outcomes and care plan adherence positively.
