Collaborating across the continuum of care is becoming increasingly important, a point crystallized by one health care technology company’s rapid growth—and success in bringing together some of the nation’s largest home health and private duty providers, as well as rehabilitation companies and health systems.

That company, PreparedHealth, has recently landed new business, validating its mission to better connect providers from hospital to home through a platform inspired by social media.

A proven success in dramatically reducing readmissions is driving that growth, its executives say.

The Chicago company announced at the end of July that Cherry Hill, New Jersey-based FOX Rehabilitation had joined its growing Dina Network, PreparedHealth’s flagship offering. Less than two weeks later, PreparedHealth announced that Des Plaines, Illinois-based Crystal Home Health Care had also signed on.

The two recent announcements add to PreparedHealth’s growing list of health system and post-acute clients currently using Dina. So far, the list includes Centegra Health System, Holy Redeemer, Bayada Home Health Care, Encompass Health (NYSE: EHC), and Homewatch CareGivers, among others.

Regionally, about one-quarter of the post-acute providers operating in the Philadelphia and New Jersey markets are actively using PreparedHealth’s software, Chief Operating Officer Tim Coulter told Home Health Care News.

“It is a very simple communication platform that’s HIPAA-complaint and secure, allowing providers to communicate with one another and do things like send referrals, pass progress notes back and forth,” Coulter said. “We’ve worked to build up some key markets in certain geographies, hoping to connect hospitals to rehab facilities, skilled nursing facilities and home health providers.”
