As a certified Medicare and Medicaid long term home health and personal attendant services provider it was important for Personal Assistance Services of Colorado (PASCO), one of the largest locally owned and operated agencies in Colorado, to select a post-acute software vendor that offered a flexible solution that met the dynamic needs of their agency. In spring 2014, PASCO will begin implementation of Procura Home Care Software.

In 1991, PASCO was founded to provide long term home health and personal attendant services to adults and children with severe disabilities in the community. PASCO’s core mission is to provide services that support consumer choice and independence. In 2013 they provided over 1.1 million hours of home health care to over 800 clients.

“Our mission is to provide quality care and service to clients in a manner that allows the client to live their life as they choose. We provide services when and how the client wants, so that they can lead the life they want to lead,” says Ryan Zeiger, CNA, and Chief Executive Officer. “Procura’s reputation for developing flexible solutions aligned with our goal of moving from our current paper-based system to a post-acute software solution. Procura brings an international perspective on delivering home health services which coincides with our approach to continuously improving the existing home health and attendant services model through client directed care. Together with Procura we believe we will be able to more effectively expand our client directed philosophy to new populations and clients.”

PASCO provides a full range of services including attendant, certified nursing assistant, and skilled nursing services to adults and children with disabilities needing assistance with activities of daily living.

“Working closely with a passionate home health care agency like PASCO, is inspiring,” states Rebecca MacKinnon, Vice President of US Sales. “Their fundamental belief in providing a patient directed model of care and services encourages loyalty amongst their clients. Our breadth of knowledge in global healthcare best practices is advantageous when understanding PASCO’s organizational needs. Globally we’ve seen a trend towards empowering the patient to direct their own care. Procura can be tailored to meet these requirements, while enhancing PASCO’s current business processes and optimizing client care.”
