Home infusion provider brings innovative patient-facing technology from CitusHealth to optimize the patient and physician experience, streamline processes, and reduce costs.
(PRWEB) APRIL 16, 2018
Citus Health, a digital transformation and patient self-service solution provider for the post-acute care industry, announced today a new partnership with KabaFusion. KabaFusion specializes in IVIG (intravenous immunoglobulin) and home infusion IV therapy with seven pharmacist-owned, patient-focused specialty pharmacies serving over 40 states across the country.
The partnership will include the use and company-wide roll out of CitusHealth’s Call Bell application, which will replace many phone and paper-based processes and workflows with digital and mobile solutions. Among other advancements, Call Bell will: allow patients to get immediate answers to commonly asked questions; facilitate secure, HIPAA-compliant messaging between patients, staff, and patients’ entire care team; allow prescribers to communicate with pharmacies in a convenient, secure manner; minimize or eliminate under- or over-supply in patient homes; and obtain patient and physician signatures electronically on documentation needed for billing and compliance.
“KabaFusion has a well-earned reputation as one of the most forward-thinking organizations in the industry. The entire team from leadership to pharmacists and nurses are committed to innovation in the name of improved care delivery to patients and higher touch service to referral partners. We’re thrilled to help KabaFusion make their digital transformation goals a reality and bring their patients and partners into the digital loop to facilitate better clinical outcomes, while lowering costs,” said Melissa Kozak, RN, CRNI, and Co-Founder of CitusHealth.
Michael Rigas, Pharm.D., Chief Clinical Officer, KabaFusion, added, “Having been in home infusion for 30 years, I have yet to see the industry transform from using the most traditional practices like fax machines and telephone calls. When I saw a demonstration of the CitusHealth Call Bell solution I immediately realized this technology will bring our industry into the 21st Century and give our patients and physician partners a means of doing business with us that they have been demanding. Our goal is to provide the best possible service to our patients, while ensuring the satisfaction of our physician partners and staff. Call Bell allows us to streamline unnecessarily complex processes like patient education and physician communication, and ultimately improve outcomes. I look forward to all we will do together with CitusHealth.”
CitusHealth delivers modern software solutions that help post-acute care providers transform traditional workflows into efficient digital processes. Its Call Bell® solution offers HIPAA-compliant messaging, electronic signature, supply-capture, scheduling coordination, patient education and rapid patient onboarding for the post-acute care industry. CitusHealth was founded in 2016 by Melissa Kozak, RN, CRNI®, after seeing the frustration that builds among patients, clinicians, and caregivers as they struggled to connect with each other effectively while undergoing and providing treatment.
