A technological embrace of value-based care earned Bridgemoor Transitional Care, which provides short-term rehabilitation following a hospital stay, the Gold Award in the Transitions category in the 2019 McKnight’s Technology Awards competition.
Mark Fritz’s plans to provide complex or “heavy” transitional care for post-acute patients date back more than a decade, to when he founded Remington Medical Resorts in Texas. Now, after having helped out the struggling developer Mainstreet for a couple of years, his Bridgemoor Transitional Care — renamed from Rapid Recovery Centers — has emerged with a handful of year-old buildings and renewed vigor to provide higher-acuity care. It’s an approach that is expected to capitalize on changes that come October 1 with the Patient-Driven Payment Model. Fritz spoke with McKnight’s Editor James M. Berklan recently about forming, staffing and operating a medically transformative brand of care.
