Amedisys adopts CellTrak's care delivery management solution

CellTrak Technologies, provider of the industry´s Care Delivery Management solution — used at over 4,000 agency locations — announced an expansion of its 12-year relationship with Amedisys, Inc., one of America´s home health, hospice and personal care providers, the company said.

CellTrak´s Care Delivery Management solution, which had previously been used by Amedisys´ Home Health division, will now be used by Amedisys´ Personal Care division, the multi-state provider of personal care services to more than 15,000 seniors. This solution will enable Amedisys to dramatically improve worker productivity and agency efficiency while also ensuring improved compliance with state and private payer requirements.

Amedisys´ personal care providers in the field will use the CellTrak mobile app to electronically verify visits, document visit data at the point of care, automatically record mileage and timesheets, and manage schedules. Meanwhile, agency office staff will use a connected desktop portal to track caregiver locations, send secure messages and secure broadcast messages, and monitor schedules for changes and potential late or missed visits. Data will integrate with Amedisys´ EMR and back-office systems, and the solution will accommodate the company´s Bring Your Own Device policy.

People receive exceptional health care in their home or community when their care providers use CellTrak´s Mobile Health solution. Home care, hospice, and community care agencies in the US, Canada, and the UK deliver higher quality care, communicate more effectively, improve compliance, reduce costs, and increase productivity with CellTrak. Today, CellTrak´s complete, integrated software-as-a-service solution supports one million visits per week, facilitating care delivery and real-time field force management, automating data collection, and providing information for business and care optimization. It includes apps for all types of caregivers that run on the mobile devices; portals for efficient, coordinated care delivery by a distributed workforce; interfaces to EHRs and back office systems; and services to support adoption and optimization.
