Overland Park, KS, August 9, 2016– Netsmart has announced that Dawn Iddings has joined the company as senior vice president and general manager of Netsmart Homecare™.
Iddings will manage the continued development of Netsmart’s market-leading home care, hospice, palliative care and private duty solution, including integration into the Netsmart CareFabric® suite of clinical and business solutions.
Iddings brings more than 15 years of healthcare and technology experience to Netsmart, including senior-level positions at Siemens Healthcare, Cerner and Garmin International.
"Dawn has a proven record of facilitating long-term collaborative relationships with both clients and healthcare industry leaders," said Netsmart CEO Mike Valentine. "Her diverse experience in the healthcare ecosystem complements our ability to meet the needs of our clients as we grow our quality, innovative home care solutions."
The Netsmart Homecare solution is designed to fit home care organizations of all sizes nationwide. It provides business, clinical and scheduling functionality for home health, hospice palliative care and private duty, and automates clinical and business processes from care engagement to billing and accounts receivable.
The announcement about Iddings joining Netsmart as Netsmart Homecare executive was made on the opening day of the 2016 Allscripts Client Experience (ACE) user conference, attended by thousands of Allscripts clients and industry leaders.

The relationship established Netsmart as the largest human services and post-acute technology provider in healthcare.
