Amedisys Adopts CellTrak’s Care Delivery Management Solution for Its Fast-Expanding Personal Care Division

SCHAUMBURG, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#evv–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.
