Homewatch CareGivers, a provider of homecare for patients, has partnered with PreparedHealth, a Chicago-based healthcare technology company, to deliver improved care coordination in the home through latter’s enTouch.

enTouch is  a digital network linking caregiver with patients from hospital to home.

Homewatch CareGivers president & CEO Julie R. Smith said: “We pride ourselves on pushing for growth and change within the industry.

“With more emphasis placed on home care by Medicare, we’re excited to provide innovative tools that can enhance patient care and allow us to build stronger relationships with our partners across the care continuum.”

enTouch connects all those involved in a patient’s Post-Acute Care (PAC), thereby allowing HIPAA-compliant and speedy life-saving communications.

Due to this technology, post-acute care providers are witnessing a growth in referral acceptance, quicker transition times and reduced readmissions in hospitals.

Homewatch CareGivers provides a variety of services to the network including home services for the elder people, personal care, rehabilitative care and dementia care.

PreparedHealth. COO Tim Coulter said: “We are thrilled to partner with Homewatch CareGivers and expand the enTouch network with their strong footprint.

“We continue to add high quality providers to help extend care into the home and close the loop as we push toward our mission of allowing our loved ones to age where they prefer.”

PreparedHealth built enTouch connects patients and families with their healthcare providers.

Homewatch has more than 190 locations across seven countries and 33 US states.
