The Sequentia Platform
Choosing the best provider for extended care is increasingly critical and difficult for patients, their families and caregivers, hospitals and physicians groups, and extended care providers. The web-based Sequentia Transition of Care & Discharge Planning and Placement platform delivers unprecedented service and support to all these groups to improve the identification and selection of the right extended care provider to meet individuals' specific medical care, personal, geographic and insurance needs and criteria, as well as facilitating the transition from hospital or home to the next stage of care.

As the traditional discharge process changes to an online, data-driven patient-centric process, hospitals are implementing new technologies and platforms to improve their processes and workflows, as well as meeting new healthcare regulations and mandates. To meet the interconnected transition of care issues and challenges faced by patients, hospitals and extended care providers, Sequentia's platform solution provides features and benefits to each group (see the chart below).  

"Connecting You With Care, Connecting You With Cleveland" Event
Thanks to generous contributions from a number of Cleveland top restaurants and food and beverage providers, Sequentia will host a launch and networking event to introduce Sequentia as well as provide  a Taste of Cleveland. The Sequentia platform will be presented along with samplings from the following and more:
Cleveland Whiskey, Great Lakes Brewing, TownHall, Luca Italian Cuisine, Georgetown, Burntwood Tavern, Mario Tasting Table, and more
