Premier specialty infusion services provider to incorporate Citus Health secure messaging to facilitate real-time patient care communication, create staff efficiencies, and add value for referral sources.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) July 10, 2018
Citus Health, a digital health solutions provider for the post-acute care industry, announced today a new partnership with Amerita, Inc. Amerita is an innovative specialty infusion company specializing in IV (intravenous) administration of complex medications to treat a wide range of acute and chronic health conditions with over 20 locally-focused pharmacy locations serving 15 states throughout the U.S.
Amerita partnered with Citus Health to equip its staff, patients and referral partners with the robust, HIPAA-compliant Citus Health Call Bell® secure messaging solution. Call Bell solves many of the day-to-day challenges faced by specialty infusion pharmacies by replacing time-intensive phone and paper-based processes with more efficient digital and mobile communications. Call Bell will enable Amerita staff to easily facilitate direct communication between staff, patients, and the patient’s entire care team; as well as demonstrate the close patient engagement and value-based care that referral partners have come to expect.
“Citus Health’s scope of solutions for the home infusion and specialty pharmacy industries, coupled with their commitment to provide services to NHIA were compelling reasons for Amerita to engage the Citus team as we look to engage with our patients more directly and securely while also creating new efficiencies across our organization. The creativity and strength of our two organizations will provide broader options in the management of patient care for us and support further expansion of the Citus Health portfolio of solutions,” commented Richard Iriye, President, Amerita.
According to Melissa Kozak, RN, CRNI, and Co-Founder of Citus Health, “Amerita is a well-established innovator in the specialty infusion market. The team’s entrepreneurial focus and commitment to delivering efficient, highly responsive patient care are a perfect fit for Citus Health digital and mobile solutions. We are excited to support the Amerita team’s goals of high touch patient care that delivers both cost savings and deepens referral partner relationships.”
Amerita, Inc. is a specialty infusion company focused on providing complex pharmaceutical products and clinical services to patients outside of the hospital. This market is expanding rapidly and is driven by increasing healthcare costs that are moving patients into the most cost-effective delivery settings, a growing bio-pharmaceutical pipeline of infuseable and injectable medications, an aging population, and the recent addition of a Medicare benefit for these products and services.
