DALLAS (January 20, 2022)—Axxess, a technology provider for care in the home, is helping home health providers deliver the best possible value-based care by partnering with aging-in-place specialist Seniors Home Services and joining the HomesRenewed Coalition.
“The public health emergency has increased the demand for care in the home, and with value-based care, star ratings and the client experience being top-of-mind for providers, having access to tools that will keep patients safe in the home will also help their business,” says Axxess Founder and Chief Executive Officer John Olajide.
“We are truly excited about our partnership with Axxess,” says Jim Bland, president of Seniors Home Services. “We admire their commitment to providing agencies best-in-class technologies and solutions for maximizing operations and patient outcomes.”
Seniors Home Services is a comprehensive resource for keeping seniors as safe as possible, for as long as possible, in their own homes. The company’s 24/7 Connected Home Monitoring System provides home health care agency patients and families affordable, full-time patient oversight, reduced hospital readmissions, improved patient outcomes and an improved quality of life for patients and family members. Additionally, the company offers medication management technology, fall injury-reduction flooring, indoor air purification and a unique technology that improves cognition, balance and motor skills.
This partnership includes Axxess joining the HomesRenewed Coalition as the first health care technology company involved in their efforts to drive policies and investments to increase the number of individuals who can afford to age in place safely in “age-friendly” homes. The HomesRenewed Coalition proposed legislation could make home modification much more affordable with tax incentives to senior adults.
Axxess and Seniors Home Services join organizations like Lowes and AARP in support of the coalition, uniting businesses, consumers and nonprofits around legislative initiatives that foster home modification coupled with in-home support services over institutional care for aging adults.
“Axxess becomes more deeply engaged at the health policy level by becoming an active member of the HomesRenewed Coalition,” said Deborah Hoyt, Axxess’ senior vice president of public policy. “Our vision for aging senior adults aligns around knowing that together we are moving forward on multiple fronts to advance the future of healthcare in the home. These are fundamental policy changes that need to be made in Washington, and we’ll work together to make them happen.”
