How does OpenPlacement benefit discharge planners, case managers and social workers?

OpenPlacement wants to make your job easier! Our goal is to build tools that help you streamline the process of care coordination. Never rely on the phonebook, brochures, internet searches and those “Lists” to find care providers that meet your patients' needs.

Do you research every post-hospital care provider?

No, OpenPlacement does not research or provide any independent recommendations or reviews about care providers listed to its network. OpenPlacement provides as much information and transparency about care providers that it can based on publicly available data (such as Medicare.gov reviews) as well as community generated reviews and ratings.

How much does OpenPlacement cost?

OpenPlacement is absolutely free to use for patients and their family. For discharge professionals at Hospitals and SNFs looking to find care providers for their patients OpenPlacement is free as well. Care providers pay a monthly subscription to show information about their community and/or services as well as a referral fee.
