Aveanna Healthcare (NASDAQ: AVAH), a leading, diversified home care platform focused on providing care to medically complex, high-cost patient populations, announced the implementation of the Homecare Homebase and Medalogix platforms across their home health and hospice divisions, which now number over 90 U.S. locations.
As a result of Aveanna's exponential growth, the company sought more robust technology solutions that could scale quickly and standardize processes across the organization. Aveanna initiated the implementation of Homecare Homebase in Q3 2021 and completed the full roll-out in Q2 2022.
"Homecare Homebase gives us a foundation from which to drive patient outcomes and growth across all of our locations." stated Rob Radics, President of Home Health and Hospice at Aveanna Healthcare. "With Homecare Homebase, our teams have the right platform for clinical documentation and operational decision-making which leads to improved patient care."
Homecare Homebase and Medalogix integrate to optimize clinical resources for delivering better care to more patients at lower cost. The Homecare Homebase EHR is a workflow driven system that improves documentation and compliance. Integrated directly with the HCHB platform, the Medalogix solutions leverage deep-neural network machine learning and natural language processing to identify patient risk and inform the appropriate amount of care.
Aveanna's Chief Operating Officer, Jeff Shaner, added, "With the upcoming reimbursement changes coming with Value Based Purchasing, it is more important than ever to provide excellent clinical outcomes. HCHB and Medalogix will provide the tools to allow Aveanna to be ahead of the curve with the upcoming changes. Together, these solutions tie patient data across home health and hospice seamlessly, which improves our clinical staff’s ability to deliver the right care to the right patient at the right time."
"It's exciting to be able to create a customized solution that delivers Aveanna Healthcare best in class tools for home-based care. Said Homecare Homebase CEO Scott Decker. "This is another example of the added-value our integration with Medalogix offers home-based care agencies."
