(KIRKLAND) March 23, 2020 – In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, AIDA Healthcare, creators of Artificial Intelligence Discharge Agent (AIDA), a patent-pending, HIPAA-compliant software platform focused on helping patients, hospitals, health systems, and ACOs connect with all post-acute care providers and improve the patient transition process, announced that it will offer Patient Choice at no cost to hospitals currently being impacted by COVID-19.

Patient Choice is part of the AIDA platform, which simplifies the complexity of the patient transition process for all providers in the care continuum, helping to achieve clarity about each episode of care. AIDA creates clarity by offering a deeper level of information about downstream providers and a technology-driven approach to communicating with them, which increases efficiency, reduces length of stay, and reduces hospital readmissions.

“With the spread of COVID-19, concerns are mounting about hospital bed capacity. Hospitals are focused on preparing for high-utilization and will need to improve efficiency around the patient discharge and transition process. Accurate and live data sharing across multiple providers throughout the care continuum is crucial to meeting this need”, says Julian Paraschiv, CEO, AIDA Healthcare. “Hospitals are anticipating large caseloads of COVID-19 patients and case management efficiency is more important than ever. According to recent reports, nearly two-thirds of the nation’s estimated hospital beds are already occupied. We know that hospitals are facing a huge challenge and AIDA is committed to assist them during this time.”
