Atlanta, GA (February 28, 2010) - Leading Homecare and Hospice mobile solution showcased in the Sprint Booth, #1413, in Hall "C" at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference.
Homecare aims to make it possible for people to remain at home rather than use residential, long-term, or institutional-based nursing care. Homecare providers render services in the client's own home. These services may include some combination of professional health care services and life assistance services.
Professional Home Health services include medical or psychological assessment, wound care, medication teaching, pain management, disease education and management, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy. Life Assistance services may include transportation, assistance with activities of daily living, bathing assistance, meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders or monitoring.
Homecare is a passion driven industry working to help make everyone's life better and CellTrak is the leading provider of GPS integrated, mobile solutions for the homecare, hospice and private duty market segments across North America.
