Today, Homecare Homebase, a leading home health software provider announced a new milestone as their number of field users surpassed 50,000 last month. The Homecare Homebase solution was one of the first software solutions for the homecare and hospice industry designed to take advantage of wireless communication to improve the productivity and face-to-face interaction between caregiver, patient and back office.

Homecare Homebase launched the industry’s first mobile application for home health in 2001 and continues to work closely with mobility leaders to enhance the offering. In 2011, Homecare Homebase formed an alliance with Samsung to create an optimized solution on Galaxy tablets utilizing Samsung’s software development kit (SDK) and application programming interfaces (API’s). Today, the two companies work together to deliver leading home health software on Samsung’s diverse mobile device portfolio, providing a range of form factors and price points. Samsung’s enterprise-grade features and Knox security platform allow customers to benefit from the flexibility of the Android operating system while maintaining regulatory compliance and secure device management.

“Mobility presents enormous opportunities for innovation in the healthcare industry around patient care, employee productivity and streamlined communication,” said Dave Lowe, vice president and general manager of enterprise sales at Samsung Telecommunications America. “By working closely with software providers like Homecare Homebase, we can offer comprehensive solutions combining software and devices to create new value for customers, allowing them make the most of their investment.”

Homecare Homebase, developed by home health and hospice professionals, is the most comprehensive, web-based enterprise software solution available, allowing users to decrease costs and streamline agency operations, without compromising care. This powerful, wireless solution uses proprietary compression technology to sync visit data in less than two minutes. Its store-and-forward feature ensures that even caregivers in the most remote locations can still perform visits and document patient status without interruption. Homecare Homebase keeps the patient’s circle of care connected.

Leading homecare and hospice agencies throughout the United States rely on the Homecare Homebase solution to automate workflow processes, ensure accurate billing and to tie together all agency operational information.

“Homecare Homebase enabled our agency to fully leverage the power of mobile communications to assist our field staff.” said Chris Gerard, Chief Operating Officer, Kindred at Home Division. “Our field staff is now more productive, our reporting more accurate and our patients receive a better level of care.”

"We set out to develop Homecare Homebase with a mobile-first perspective in 2001 because as caregivers we knew a truly wireless solution was the only way to provide better communication and coordination of care across the agency," said April Anthony, Chief Executive Officer at Homecare Homebase. "Its from this background that we understand the vital need for a robust, mobile application that gives homecare and hospice caregivers more freedom from the office to spend more time with patients and their families and ultimately focus on providing the best care.”
