Citus Health and the National Home Infusion Association (NHIA) to Collaborate on Digital Solutions to Enhance Patient Care
NHIA chooses digital health company to build web-based platform that will allow improved productivity and efficiency in the delivery of infusion patient care
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 02, 2017 – Citus Health, a digital health solution provider for the post-acute care industry, and the National Home Infusion Association (NHIA), representing the nation’s providers and suppliers of home and specialty infusion therapy, have agreed to collaborate on the use of a web-based technology that will give infusion providers greater access to NHIA clinical resources and solutions to enhance patient care. The web-based application will also offer resources on billing and reimbursement.
“Working in the industry as a home infusion nurse for many years, I saw first-hand how the lack of automation and information flow can negatively impact an organization’s ability to deliver a high level of care,” said Melissa Kozak, RN, CRNI®, founder and CEO of Citus Health. “Through the application of innovative technologies, we believe we can transform many paper-based and manual-intensive processes that can be found across the post-acute care industry. Our shared vision of empowerment through education is what brought Citus Health and NHIA together, and we are pleased to be collaborating with the association on this initiative to provide NHIA members with technology solutions to further support their work, particularly in the field.”
“NHIA is at the forefront of developing education programming and resources to support our members in advancing and elevating home infusion patient care. We are pleased to work with Citus Health to make a variety of the association’s resources more accessible to our members via mobile technology,” said Tyler J. Wilson, NHIA president and CEO. “We look forward to rolling out the results of our joint effort to infusion providers over the next several months. As a member-based organization, NHIA providers will be the immediate beneficiaries of this new, easy to access digital resource. We are grateful to be working with such an innovative, fast-moving, and forward-thinking industry advocate as Citus Health,” Wilson added.
Citus Health announced the availability of its flagship product, Call Bell®, at the 2017 NHIA Annual Conference, where it also utilized a focus group of stakeholder conference attendees assembled by NHIA, to gauge consumer interest and feedback on products under development. The Call Bell mobile application helps home infusion providers transform traditional workflows into efficient digital processes, while enabling interactive communications with remote patients. The collaborative work Citus Health is performing for NHIA focuses on equipping members with greater access to product information about clinical and reimbursement issues.
