Southwest Florida Home Care, Inc. today announced that after a comprehensive market evaluation they have selected Claris Healthcare as their next generation remote patient monitoring partner. Southwest Florida Home Care, Inc. provides a wide range of services to customers in the southwest Florida area, including Skilled Nursing, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Home Health aide and Medical Social Services.
“In today’s Home Health landscape, agencies are faced with numerous challenges- PDGM, the COVID-19 Pandemic, and the upcoming Pre-Claim Review. Delivering a high-end Telemed platform to our clients is not a trendy option, it is essential for survival! After doing extensive research in the field, we felt that Claris by far gave us the best chance at reaching our desired outcomes as being a leader in the Home Healthcare space.” -Anthony Gambuzza, CEO at Southwest Florida Home Care, Inc.
Founded in 2012, Claris Healthcare developed its first remote monitoring solution to address the challenge of senior isolation by enhancing caregiver engagement. In 2018, new CMS reimbursement codes for remote patient monitoring led Claris to launch its RPM platform, Claris Continuum, to include Bluetooth connected medical devices, clinical content, risk stratification and other innovative features necessary to remotely manage a chronic care population.
Claris Continuum is the only RPM solution built on years of experience deploying remote monitoring systems designed specifically for seniors. Continuum combines the latest in Bluetooth medical devices with a rich history of providing seniors with tablet-based platforms for social engagement. The result is the industry’s most intuitive system making it easy to use for patients well into their 80s and 90s.
“We recognize how important shared savings is for organizations like Southwest Florida Home Care, Inc. which is why we focus on keeping cost down while stressing improved patient outcomes. They have shown through their investment in RPM that the health and safety of its senior population is their number one priority,” said Geof Auchinleck, CEO at Claris Healthcare.
