TripleCare, a provider of telemedicine-based health care, announced Thursday it has unveiled its services at two Marquis Health Services locations, one of them in New Jersey.

Marquis is a sub-acute rehabilitation and skilled nursing care provider in the Northeast. It currently has 18 skilled nursing properties.

TripleCare said it is bringing its virtual physician care and services to patients at Oakland Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center in Oakland and Blueberry Hill Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center in Beverly, Massachusetts.

Oakland Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center is a 215-bed facility which offers sub-acute rehabilitation, dementia care and long-term care wings. It specializes in cardiopulmonary and orthopedic rehabilitation.

“We look forward to working with Marquis as our telemedicine services continue to help facilities such as Blueberry Hill and Oakland Rehabilitation increase their patient census, elevate treat-in-place rates, lower return-to-hospital (RTH) incidences and distinguish themselves in their local marketplaces. Our mission is to help our clients reduce or avoid hospitalizations and readmissions, and with our physician connectivity, we bring facilities and their patients comfort in knowing they can achieve this,” said Dr. Mary Jo Gorman, TripleCare CEO.

“In fact, of the patients we have treated in place, on site, since recently launching services at both Marquis-owned facilities, we have prevented hospitalizations for more than half of them,” Gorman said.

“In a fairly short period of time, TripleCare’s telemedicine services have already made a difference in helping our facilities achieve better outcomes and are giving greater peace of mind to our patients and their families. At Marquis, we continually strive to differentiate our facilities and leverage telemedicine technology for the benefit of our patients, their families and caregivers, as well as our clinical teams. By harnessing services like TripleCare, we can make a positive impact, and we look forward to more opportunities to bring virtual services to other Marquis facilities,” said Norman Rokeach, CEO of Marquis Health Services.
