New systems coordinate home health reporting with telehealth

Judging from the number of new entrants, software that coordinates care for home health agencies and their patients is attracting substantial new interest.  Eldersync, an early-stage company, has developed new web-based software (in beta test) that schedules visits with patients in their homes, verifies completed visits via text message or phone call to the system and files notes on a patient’s status.  It also synchronizes the data generated by a patient’s telehealth monitoring devices with the system. Others are RemCare, Ankota and CellTrak [TA 2 June].   They are positioning themselves as less expensive alternatives to the dominant players, Sandata and HomeTrak, which require purchase of software that must be managed by the home health agency.   Xconomy.
