Storied Software Company Changes Hands for Second Time in Four Years
by Tim Rowan, Editor
On Monday, November 1, AlayaCare took a major step toward expanding beyond private duty home care with its announcement that it has acquired Delta Health Technologies from Salo Solutions, the Ohio company that itself had acquired Delta in late 2017. We spoke with Neil Grunberg, AlayaCare's VP of Strategy and Corporate Development.
"The entire staff will be continuing in their current jobs," he began, "both in Altoona, PA and in Columbus, Ohio." Asked about Tony Ott, the former Interim CIO who became CEO of Salo Solutions at the time that company acquired Delta, Grunberg told us he would join Alayacare in a business development role. "There is a lot of expertise among the Delta staff," he added. "They will be an essential asset as AlayaCare grows into the Medicare Home Health and Hospice market."
Grunberg told us that the acquisition extends AlayaCare's customer count to over 700. The Montreal-based company had previously acquired Arrow Solutions, followed by Procura, including that company's operations in Canada, the U.S., and Australia. "This is a major development in AlayaCare's commitment to make in-home care a more connected and integrated part of the healthcare continuum," the news release asserted.
"Delta Health Technologies adds an exciting new scope to the future of the AlayaCare platform and services, fueling our push towards bridging the gap between home care and home health care in all markets, which has always been a key part of the AlayaCare mission," said Adrian Schauer, CEO of AlayaCare. "The Delta Health Technologies team brings a breadth and depth of home health market expertise to our organization. We look forward to building upon their successful legacy by developing best-of-breed home health and hospice solutions, as well as improving the exchange of healthcare data across the continuum."
To help providers focus on delivering the best possible patient care, Delta Health's solutions, AppointMate® and Crescendo™, deliver functionality that optimize resource management, billing and clinical point of care for home health, hospice, and private duty providers.
The post-acute care market, providers, and most importantly, care recipients have strongly expressed the need for interoperability where post-acute care is delivered in an end-to-end platform supporting personal care, nursing, allied health, and home infusion.
"Delta Health shares AlayaCare's mission to empower care providers to achieve better health outcomes by delivering transformative technology and data insights,” said Tony Ott, CEO of Delta Health Technologies. “Their proven track record of success in home care reflects our commitment to help agencies deliver the best possible care more efficiently and profitably, and we’re excited to combine our expertise and solutions to support our clients in new and innovative ways.”
AlayaCare offers an end-to-end software platform for home and community care providers to manage the entire client lifecycle from referrals and intake to billing, payroll, and beyond. Combining traditional in-home and virtual care solutions, AlayaCare enables care providers across the world to propel towards innovation and healthcare of the future. www.alayacare.com
