​The Science Coalition, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization of more than 50 of the nation's leading public and private research universities, named RightCare Solutions in its new report, "Sparking Economic Growth 2.0."

The report cited RightCare Solutions, a software program aimed at reducing readmissions within 90 days, thus reducing hospital costs as benefiting from the "university ecosystem." The report noted it "provides critical expertise, tools and infrastructure, as well as a creative environment that can help young companies thrive."

The software emanated from independent research conducted at The University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing by Kathryn H. Bowles, PhD, RN, FAAN, the van Amerigen Chair in Nursing Excellence and a professor of nursing.

The Coalition is dedicated to sustaining the federal government's investment in basic scientific research as a means to stimulate the economy, spur innovation and drive America's global competitiveness.
