HARTFORD, Conn. & ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.(January 17, 2020)—CareCentrix, a provider of in home-based and post-acute care (PAC) solutions, announced today it has entered a strategic alliance with Synzi, a technology enabler for post-acute care. The alliance creates virtual delivery of post-acute services to deeply personalize the work that CareCentrix already does caring for patients.
“After an acute episode, patients just want to go home. Our goal is to help people return home and heal. With new digital tools, we can speed long-term recovery,” said John Driscoll, CEO of CareCentrix. “Synzi empowers our national network to—in real time—address patient needs, whether virtual or in-person. Their applications support multiple languages, which helps engage the ten million Medicare and Medicaid recipients for whom English is not their first language.”
This partnership embeds Synzi’s virtual care tools directly in CareCentrix’s collaboration and coordination platform, HomeBridge, to engage and manage patient populations at-risk for re-hospitalization. Synzi allows patients to connect with CareCentrix’s provider network through HIPAA-compliant video, email and text, and to access condition-specific notifications for better self-management.
“The delivery of care needs to be more patient-centric and should be designed to truly help the patient heal in place – in one’s own home. We focus on the last five feet of healthcare – essentially, reaching the patient where he or she wants to be – while providing the analytics which helps CareCentrix make better decisions on how and when to best engage patients throughout the episode of care,” said Lee Horner, CEO of Synzi.
