Kozak honored for her positive impact on post-acute care providers, patients, and their loved ones.
NEW YORK CITY – August 22, 2022 — CitusHealth, a leading digital health solutions provider for the home-based care industry, announced today that its Co-Founder and President Melissa Kozak, RN, BSN, was recognized among Crain’s New York Business’ 2022 Notable Healthcare Leaders.
In her decade of experience as a registered nurse in both medical/surgical and home infusion settings, Kozak recognized the need for better communication methods in healthcare and in response founded CitusHealth to bring the digital revolution to home-based care. She saw firsthand the complications of poor communication methods that were not conducive to delivering high-quality care and brought these digital solutions to the home infusion, specialty pharmacy, home health, hospice, and palliative care spaces. Since starting CitusHealth, Kozak has been able to bring comprehensive solutions to the market that keep clinicians and patients seamlessly connected to each other.
“CitusHealth is a reflection of the belief my team and I share that better tools are needed to provide comprehensive support to patients receiving care outside the hospital setting,” said Kozak. “Especially during the onset of the pandemic, we wanted to ensure patients had adequate means to communicate with their care providers and that care teams had ways to collaborate with one another despite remote work environments. Receiving this award from Crain’s is a great honor and I am thrilled to continue to provide solutions to all stakeholders in the post-acute care continuum.”
At CitusHealth, Kozak and her team continue to develop patient-centric solutions made for the entire care teams’ needs – expanding product offerings and improving business operations for specialty pharmacies, home infusion, home health, hospice, and palliative care providers. As a part of the ResMed SaaS organization, CitusHealth has an extensive network of providers and patients that continue to identify and benefit from the technologies improvements.
Crain’s publishes its Notable in Heath Care list annually, choosing honorees for their leadership, civic engagement, and many other factors. Since 2020, this award has highlighted those who have had a positive impact on healthcare in New York City and honors their contributions.
