careLearning


careLearning is a nonprofit organization formed more than a decade ago which is owned and operated by more than 40 state hospital associations including NJHA. These associations work in partnership to offer a comprehensive workforce education management solution to member hospitals with an affordable price and convenient online platform.

Over 280 hospitals and healthcare organizations nationally use careLearning for their employee education needs. Virtually all of these organizations offer the On-Line Health and Safety Compliance Training Series to their employees to meet their Joint Commission/OSHA requirements.

careLearning provides:

  • A powerful underlying database which contains data captured from employee education activity. The database resides at the hospital location and not at careLearning.  Participating hospitals maintain ownership and control of this data.
  • Capability to track online activity as well as in-service education sessions.
  • A utility which easily updates the database with changes in payroll so new staff additions and deletions are accurately updated within the database.
  • The ability to develop and publish “private courses” using hospital-specific content. Virtually all participating hospitals utilize this money-saving benefit.  
  • Ready access with no long-term contractual commitments.

Since April 2016, many New Jersey hospitals have been required to participate in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) mandatory comprehensive joint replacement (CJR) bundling program. As a result of this first mandatory bundling program in the nation, relationships between hospitals, physicians and post-acute providers, such as skilled nursing facilities and home health agencies, have continued to be transformed. NJHA and LeadingAge NJ are hosting this program now that hospitals are in the process of evaluating early results that will determine their performance vis-à-vis financial reconciliation. This program will begin with a look at the national landscape provided by Kelly C. Price, Vice President and Chief of Healthcare Data Analytics, at DataGen, followed by a panel of New Jersey hospitals and post-acute providers that have been engaged in the model who will discuss the operational, data analytic, systems, clinical, network development and other initiatives behind their participation in CJR as well as their plans for moving into year two of the model.

With the advent of insurance marketplaces and expansion of Medicaid, rising uncompensated care costs make capturing reimbursements more important than ever.

Join us for a webinar with NJHA Strategic Partner TransUnion and trusted provider of revenue cycle management and value-based care solutions for maximizing reimbursements and reducing costs. TransUnion will demonstrate how eScan®, helps uncover more unidentified sources of payment and coverage than anyone in the industry, with over $9.8 billion in recovered uncompensated care charges and $1.54 billion delivered back to hospitals. eScan® is a post-service eligibility system designed to maximize reimbursements and reduce uncompensated care costs for a hospital or health system which locates previously unknown coverage on an average of 1-5 percent of a provider’s uncompensated care accounts.

The eScan® system leverages patented data mining technology with hundreds of query permutations to deliver a series of automated, customizable reports that identify billable coverage for accounts that are not, and in some cases, cannot be captured on the frontend.

The webinar will highlight how eScan®:

• Runs all accounts against the Medicare Common Working File and state Medicaid databases.
• Ascertains patient demographic discrepancies between the hospital and payer data.
• Identifies commercial policy ID numbers for patients believed to be uninsured.

Previewing the eScan® solution during this webinar will be well worth your time!
