New Physician Services Management Group for Post Acute Medicine

December 19, 2019 GMT

TACOMA, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 19, 2019--

US Post Acute Care LLC announced today the start of operations as a Management Services Organization, providing value-added service to clinical practice groups specializing in the care of patients in the post-acute setting. The new company was founded by Darren Swenson MD, CEO of Swenson Healthcare PLLC, a leading post-acute practice group with operations in the Pacific Northwest.

An organization with a national footprint, US Post Acute Care provides a full array of management services including billing, recruiting, training, compliance, analytics, and practice development. Traditionally, post-acute clinicians relied on available support from multispecialty groups or health systems not designed to meet the specific needs of post-acute medicine. US Post Acute Care structures its services offering both to serve the needs as well as leverage the capabilities of its clients: the physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants dedicated to improving the quality of patients in the post-acute setting.

US Post Acute Care has developed a proprietary clinical excellence program called SmartPAC™. Developed over the past two years by the clinical leadership team at Swenson Healthcare, the SmartPAC program is a solution specific to the needs of the post-acute medical practitioner. Currently in use with more than 3,000 patients in over 30 post-acute settings, SmartPAC™ is designed to deliver a comprehensive system of post-acute care, enabling practitioners to deliver high-quality care clinically proven to improve patient outcomes.

Founder and CEO Darren Swenson MD commented, “Post-acute medical practitioners derive great benefit from clinical and administrative support specific to their specialty. US Post Acute Care is designed to fill this niche in a unique and underserved market. Medical providers appreciate the benefit we bring to their productivity and performance. We are excited to bring our services to post-acute providers for the benefit of improving the quality of care to their patients.” Swenson added, “US Post Acute Care is in the process of building the leadership team. This is a highly skilled and experienced group of healthcare leaders with deep experience in post-acute practice management.” An announcement of the management team is expected in January 2020.
