SCHAUMBURG, ILL.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
CellTrak Technologies, provider of the industry’s leading Care Delivery Management solution – used at over 4,000 agency locations – announced an expansion of its 12-year relationship with Amedisys, Inc., one of America’s leading home health, hospice and personal care providers.
CellTrak’s Care Delivery Management solution, which had previously been used by Amedisys’ Home Health division, will now be used by Amedisys’ Personal Care division, the multi-state provider of personal care services to more than 15,000 seniors. This solution will enable Amedisys to dramatically improve worker productivity and agency efficiency while also ensuring improved compliance with state and private payer requirements.
“Amedisys has long recognized the value of a connected workforce in home care,” stated Mike Trigilio, President of Personal Care Services with Amedisys. “We are convinced that the CellTrak Care Delivery Management solution is the best approach to increase quality of care and client satisfaction, and effectively manage our decentralized field force and capture Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) compliance. We anticipate this move will enable Amedisys to capture the operational benefits, compliance and care coordination we desire.”
“With CellTrak, Amedisys’ Personal Care Division will have the solution it needs to transition to a paperless workforce,” stated Mark Battaglia, CellTrak CEO. “This will drive new efficiencies across Amedisys’ personal care operations, which will have significant impacts: higher worker productivity, better compliance with EVV mandates, reduced costs, improved communication, and a higher quality of care delivered.”
“CellTrak’s results are proven across more than 1,000,000 CellTrak-supported visits each week,” added Andrew Kaboff, CellTrak’s Founder and Chief Business Development Officer. “We first began working with Amedisys in 2005, and the longevity of this relationship is a testament to CellTrak’s innovation and ability to help agencies become lean and agile.”
Amedisys’ personal care providers in the field will use the CellTrak mobile app to electronically verify visits, document visit data at the point of care, automatically record mileage and timesheets, and manage schedules. Meanwhile, agency office staff will use a connected desktop portal to track caregiver locations, send secure messages and secure broadcast messages, and monitor schedules for changes and potential late or missed visits. Data will integrate with Amedisys’ EMR and back-office systems, and the solution will accommodate the Company’s Bring Your Own Device policy.

Home care, hospice, and community care agencies in the US, Canada, and the UK deliver higher quality care, communicate more effectively, improve compliance, reduce costs, and increase productivity with CellTrak.
