Forcura, a healthcare technology company that enables safer patient care transitions and care coordination, today announces the launch of the Forcura CONNECT Summit Series which will provide an insightful look into key industry trends, highlighting leaders from across the healthcare continuum. The speakers lined up for the first event in the series will address artificial intelligence (AI) in post-acute care.

Sophisticated technology driven by AI will undoubtedly change how healthcare and the business of healthcare is planned, delivered and even staffed. This Forcura CONNECT Summit Series webinar will be held live on May 13, 2021, and explores three distinct use cases of AI in the post-acute care sector. Registration is now open. Forcura is proud to partner with industry leaders on the cutting edge of AI, hosting the following speakers:

  • Sharon Brunecz, Chief Human Resource Officer, Amedisys examines AI as a care staffing retention predictor;
  • Wolf Shlagman, founder and CEO, Care Angel discusses AI as a care extender; and
  • Wes Little, Chief Analytics Officer, WellSky speaks to AI as a care planner.

“This webinar couldn’t be more timely,” shares Wolf Shlagman. “As providers and care teams across the country struggle to find the resources to deliver successful post-acute care – AI powered, virtual nurse assistants can be deployed within weeks to continuously and proactively monitor the health and well-being of patients across entire populations, at scale.”

Says Forcura’s Chief Strategy Officer, Annie Erstling, “The barriers to deploying AI in the post-acute space are getting lower while the return on using it only grows. This webinar will help the audience make sense of what’s available now and understand how their business and patients can benefit from AI’s incredible potential.”

The Forcura CONNECT Summit is an annual virtual conference to bring all sectors of the healthcare industry together for inspiring peer-to-peer discussion on the business, clinical and technology aspects of improving patient care. This Connect Summit Series is an outgrowth to help bridge the gap between each annual conference. Upcoming CONNECT Summit Series topics include interoperability, patient care transitions, and patient centricity later in the year.

With 31 million transmissions per year, Forcura services over 500 clients who provide care for more than a half a million patients every month. Forcura’s technology empowers healthcare providers to function at their peak, working to standardize interoperability and integration among post-acute healthcare organizations, physicians and electronic health records. With plans to broaden their platform and services in 2021, Forcura is also expanding into the rehabilitation therapy sector while exploring additional healthcare lines of business and partnerships.
