enTouch delivers on improved patient outcomes with greater visibility and data from the home
PreparedHealth announced their partnership with Homewatch CareGivers and enTouch - a growing digital network streamlining care for patients from Hospital to Home. Homewatch CareGivers is a premier provider of home care for people of all ages and today has more than 190 locations in seven countries and 33 states. The enTouch partnership provides greater visibility into patient care in the home for their partners including hospitals, skilled nursing and home health.
“We pride ourselves on pushing for growth and change within the industry. With more emphasis placed on home care by Medicare, we’re excited to provide innovative tools that can enhance patient care and allow us to build stronger relationships with our partners across the care continuum,” said Julie R. Smith, President & CEO, Homewatch CareGivers, LLC.
enTouch is a powerful community that connects everyone involved in a patient’s Post-Acute Care (PAC), enabling real-time, HIPAA-compliant, and sometimes life-saving communications at the speed of touch. With the technology, post-acute care providers are seeing an increase in referral acceptance, faster transition times and reduced readmissions for hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. Homewatch CareGivers brings a broad range of services to the network from personal care and homemaking support for the elderly, dementia care, rehabilitative care, special care for the developmentally disabled, transportation services and back-up child care.
“We are thrilled to partner with Homewatch CareGivers and expand the enTouch network with their strong footprint. We continue to add high quality providers to help extend care into the home and close the loop as we push toward our mission of allowing our loved ones to age where they prefer,” said Tim Coulter, COO of PreparedHealth.
