Bayada Home Health Care launched its new suite of digital care transition and coordination solutions to assist its hospitals and health plan joint venture partners to better serve patients in their homes and communities. The digital services will manage costs while delivering high-quality home-centered care to patients with complex care needs.
Dina has been selected as the technology partner to power these tech-enabled services.
“We look forward to working with Bayada to implement this new technology and manage the care delivery logistics to make care-at-home safe, coordinated, reliable and excellent for patients and their families,” said Dina CEO Ashish V. Shah.
The new digital tools will identify risks and track interventions as part of Bayada’s new longitudinal care management program, bridging the acute and post-acute care worlds. By improving patient transitions from hospital to home-based care, Bayada will help care teams stay connected, and create better, more cost-effective outcomes for patients and providers.
Proven Results In Meeting Complex Care Needs
In a trial including a cohort of patients with complex care needs, the approach has already created a significant impact. Patient hospitalization and emergency department visit rates were reduced by 42% and 30%, respectively, and the progression of patients moving from their homes into long-term, facility-based nursing care has also slowed.
“We’re excited to launch a highly scalable tech platform that offers seamless clinical integration, so we can coordinate multiple specialty services for seniors to help them stay safe and well cared for in their homes,” said David Baiada, CEO of Bayada Home Health Care. “This will become increasingly important as care continues to move into homes, where people want to be.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of home-based care, and most older Americans say they want to age in place.
“As organizations prepare to deliver care in a post-COVID world, it’s important that they not only invest in telehealth and remote patient monitoring capabilities, but also partner with forward-thinking home care providers to better serve people in the home setting,” said Shah.

The new tech-enabled services not only benefit patients, but major health systems as well, allowing Bayada partners to:
- Digitally transform post-acute care (PAC) network management and streamline the transitions of care experience for patients moving from hospital to home.
- Create virtual care teams across disparate post-acute and community-based providers that connect physicians, nurses, care managers, patients, and their families with real-time, secure, mobile messaging, leading to fewer unplanned emergency room visits and readmissions.
- Implement new, innovative care-at-home delivery models that keep the home as the primary destination for medically complex patients.
- Address the health equity and social determinants of health (SDOH) needs for patients through data-driven partnerships with local, community-based service providers.
- Better support the emerging needs of family caregivers as they work to formally collaborate with care teams to deliver exceptional outcomes at a lower cost. Bayada is one of the fastest-growing home health and hospice joint venture partners in the country and has joined forces with several major health systems and health plans in joint ventures and value-based care arrangements.
