Bayada Home Health Care, one of the top 10 largest home health companies in the United States, recently entered into a multi-year strategic partnership with Chicago-based health care technology firm PreparedHealth. Together, the companies are aiming to keep home health clients out of the hospital and safely aging in their own homes.
This goal is shared by home health providers of all shapes, sizes and geographies. But PreparedHealth’s partnership with Moorestown, New Jersey-based Bayada actually seems to be working. It also is notable for utilizing an artificial intelligence component comparable to Apple’s Siri or Amazon’s Alexa.
This tool successfully identified 15-times more patients who required timely interventions than traditional best practices did, PreparedHealth co-founder Ashish Shah told Home Health Care News.
