Dallas, TX – Homecare HomebaseSM (HCHB), CellTrak and Addus™ HomeCare have recently announced a new software development partnership to build the industry’s first integrated, enterprise-level solution for all types of home-based care. The solution will enable agencies to enhance their patient experience, support growth through increased client capture and meet the growing challenges of value-based care. HCHB & CellTrak will be positioned to provide a broader set of home-based solutions that allows both companies to better serve agencies across evolving post-acute care models.
In partnership with CellTrak, HCHB will build on its existing enterprise architecture to create a fully integrated platform extension, with industry-leading point-of-care, scheduling, workflow automation and back-office technology. The goal is to empower the delivery of exceptional personal care services while also providing the same level of operational and regulatory excellence that HCHB is known for today. As Medicare and private insurers see improved clinical outcomes and significant cost savings with expanded services, this new solution will create a longitudinal patient record and better manage patients, caregivers, and schedules for the long run.
“No other market solution has the proven enterprise scale, performance, security and stability that we offer,” said Scott Decker, CEO of Homecare Homebase. “Our industry expertise combined with CellTrak’s market leading personal care front-end will allow us to break new ground with broader care coordination and smoother transitions for patients as they move in and out of various levels of home-based care.” The new venture will provide an additional point of care option for HCHB clients delivering personal care services and will capitalize on CellTrak’s Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) solutions, which support a “BYOD” strategy that allows customers to choose and use both mobile iOS and Android devices.
Both HCHB and Addus had been working with CellTrak and have been very happy with the technology, service, and customer relationship. “As we surveyed the personal care space, agencies were consistently and uniquely positive on their use of CellTrak at the point of care. No other vendor in this space has demonstrated the depth of functionality and scalability we needed for enhanced personal care type services” said Scott Pattillo, Chief Strategy Officer at Homecare Homebase.
“We’re thrilled to be working with HCHB and Addus HomeCare to move the industry forward,” said Andy Kaboff, Founder & Chief Revenue Officer, CellTrak. “Our new partnership will not only empower exceptional patient care but add even more value for our agency customers as they increase services to patients and follow them along their longer-term care journey.”
The three companies, who have already devoted thousands of hours of research and prep for the solution, will be devoting extensive resources towards development with rollouts across the entire Addus enterprise starting in the first part of 2022.
