CareCentrix builds bridge to home

Tuesday, October 4, 2016

HARTFORD, Conn. – CareCentrix has launched a cloud-based platform that connects patients to the providers and care they need when they’re discharged from the hospital. 

CareCentrix developed HomeBridge to provide a complete view of a patient’s data, to track clinical events over time and to enhance collaboration, the company says in a press release.

“Patients deserve better care coordination,” said John Driscoll, CEO of CareCentrix. “Too often healthcare providers play their position, but do not have the tools to work as a team to help patients transition home.”

CareCentrix connects patients with care at home through a national network of more than 8,000 credentialed provider locations. It provides support and coordination for home health, DME, home infusion, sleep management and care management services.

With HomeBridge, these providers will be able to see a daily record of information like blood pressure and heart rate, and intervene when needed, CareCentrix says.

“We align patients with the right providers and support those providers to work as a team to guide the path home and then continue to provide patients the support they need,” Driscoll said.

CareCentrix built HomeBridge on Salesforce Health Cloud.

“In this digital era, healthcare providers need to engage their patients in new ways to not only create strong and meaningful relationships, but also to improve quality and lower costs,” said Joshua Newman, M.D., chief medical officer and general manager of Salesforce Healthcare and Life Sciences.

CareCentrix expects HomeBridge to produce “an active ecosystem of users, collaborators and integrations.”
