WATERLOO, Iowa, April 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — VGM & Associates, a division of VGM Group, Inc., is excited to announce their vendor partner, Encore Healthcare, is releasing version three of their Nexus software.

MedSouth announced today that at the end of 2020 they achieved significant patient care outcomes with Encore Healthcare’s Nexus Software.

Encore Healthcare partnered with MedSouth in June of 2019 and the program has reduced complex respiratory readmission by >60% with both their joint venture hospital partnerships featuring MedSouth’s Air Management tm post discharge transition of care program and from community referrals that begin with physician offices. 

“Medsouth has demonstrated it can provide an advanced clinical level of care and coordinate hospital & physician objectives because of the Nexus platform,” [said Jon Coy, RRT, Area Vice President]. The clinical assessments have dramatically increased our effectiveness by customizing the visits, and our respiratory clinical staff have excelled at meeting their patients’ plan of care goals.

“We have used other platforms before but nothing compares to the outcomes, analytic insights, and growth we have been able to achieve with Nexus platform,” [Gregory Duckworth, Senior Vice President]
