(Dallas, TX) – Homecare Homebase (HCHB) has announced that Kindred at Home, the nation’s largest provider of home health, hospice and community care services, has joined the software leader as their newest agency client.

Kindred at Home chose HCHB to optimize data, standardize processes and boost efficiency and performance in their business, including their sought-after specialty care programs. The EMR system will help Kindred more efficiently handle an increasing demand for post-acute and hospice care which are capturing a larger share of overall health care spending. 

David Causby, CEO of Kindred at Home, said “We are dedicated to providing our employees with the best tools to continue to deliver the best care. We looked at other software providers but none could match the quality, scope and efficiencies that HCHB has to offer.” 

HCHB President Scott Decker said Kindred at Home is not alone in looking at new ways to streamline workflow and boost productivity using advanced software and analytics – which he clearly sees as the future of home care. “Agencies around the country are reexamining the way they work and coming to us for answers to the challenges they face. When they see our software in action, they know we can quickly help them recapture their initial ROI and provide the foundation for success in the future.”
