MUSE Healthcare launches predictive hospice tool with Homecare Homebase

May 12, 2020 

DALLAS, TX – Homecare HomebaseSM (HCHB), the nation’s #1 software for home health and hospice, has partnered with MUSE Healthcare of St. Paul to offer enhanced hospice care during the most critical times of a patient’s care journey. The new product uses sophisticated modeling and machine learning to better predict, prepare and provide for hospice patients in the last 7-12 days of life.

The fast-growing, complex and sensitive hospice service area offers unique challenges for providers seeking to allocate resources when and where they’re needed most. The MUSE solution is designed to address a well-documented gap in end of life care and ensure that every patient transitions with exceptional dignity, comfort and attention. 

Tom Maxwell, Co-Founder of MUSE Healthcare said the data science company’s extraordinary insight comes from a vast, ever-growing patient data pool that can accurately predict outcomes based on the most subtle, yet wide-ranging metrics. ​“We know that the average late-stage patient is often underserved. Our whole goal is to arm hospice staff with information and enable them to offer more caring hospice visits to patients and families in the last 7-12 days of life, with a greater sense of satisfaction for everyone.”

According to Homecare Homebase Chief Strategy Officer Scott Pattillo, patient and family satisfaction is essential in building stronger referrals and long-term business success. ​“The MUSE product is the perfect fit for our HCHB Business Connect Suite of interoperability products and adds incredible value to our robust hospice solution through its integration. When we can empower exceptional care during a patient’s final days and help our customers better manage their resources, it’s a win/​win for everyone.”

About MUSE Healthcare 

Muse Healthcare was founded in 2019 by three leading hospice industry professionals — Jennifer Maxwell, Tom Maxwell and Bryan Mosher. Their mission is to equip clinicians with world-class analytics to ensure every hospice patient transitions with unparalleled quality and dignity. Muse’s predictive model considers hundreds of thousands of data points from millions of visits to identify which hospice patients are most likely to transition within 7-12 days. The science that powers Muse is considered a true deep learning neural network – the only one of its kind in the hospice space. When hospice care providers can more accurately predict when their patients will transition, they can ensure their patients and their patients’ families receive the care that matters most in the final days and final hours of a patient’s life.
