BAYADA Home Health Care, the nation’s largest private provider of home-based services, and PreparedHealth, a growing healthcare engagement company, announced today a multi-year strategic partnership. The alliance comes on the heels of several successful projects in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Florida that proved to proactively keep patients out of the hospital and lowered overall readmissions for health system partners and health insurance companies. The two companies are currently expanding the offering of enTouch, a social network for healthcare, and DINA, a Digital Nursing Assistant, across BAYADA’s impressive network of home health, personal (assistive) care, hospice, physician house calls and home-based pharmacy specialties.
“Partnering with PreparedHealth has allowed us to proactively care for seniors in the Philadelphia market” said David Baiada, Chief Operating Officer of BAYADA Home Health Care. “With DINA, we are able to identify clients who require timely interventions and empower them to live independently in their homes and communities.”
Healthcare providers, health plans and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are increasingly looking to the home- and community-based providers, as well as family caregivers, to proactively care for patient populations. With enTouch, a secure social network now exists to conveniently and seamlessly bring together providers and family caregivers. Once on the network, participants can easily identify which of their patients require intervention, coordinate referrals, manage transitions, place orders, and even involve family caregivers as needed.
“We are proud to partner with BAYADA and have them join our growing network of home-based providers. They have an impressive, people-first culture and this innovative partnership is yet another example of BAYADA’s commitment to excellence.” said Ashish V. Shah, co-founder of PreparedHealth.
