Asante, a nationally recognized health system in southern Oregon, and AccentCare, a leader in post-acute health care, have expanded their existing home health joint venture through an agreement, effective October 1, 2017, to create AccentCare Asante Home Health.
AccentCare has been operating a joint venture home health company with Asante, delivering clinically integrated care, for the past eight years. This newly expanded relationship folds in Asante’s Ashland Home Health and creates a preferred provider partnership with AccentCare that spans all of Asante’s service area.
“We are excited about our expanded relationship with Asante,” said Steve Rodgers, CEO of AccentCare. “Asante has earned widespread recognition for patient care and shares our commitment to quality, compassionate healthcare in the home.”
Overall, this partnership will benefit patients through care innovation and enhanced care coordination between acute and post-acute home care.
“Our growing partnership with AccentCare will offer our patients improved access to a broader range of home health services, including specialty programs and telemonitoring,” said Scott Kelly, Asante’s Executive Vice President. “The expanded array of services will provide continuity as our patients transition from the hospital to other modes of treatment.”
