Schaumburg, IL (February 10, 2011) - Continuum Care, Inc. (CCI), Hospice of St. Croix, St. Thomas and St, John, is a Virgin Islands company and is the first hospice in the Virgin Islands. CCI is also the first Medicare certified hospice in the US Virgin Islands. CCI started on St. Croix in 2000 and expanded services to St. Thomas and St. John in February 2004.
Continuum Care Inc. implemented their CellTrak service recently and has it integrated with their clinical software, firstHOSPICE from HEALTHCAREfirst. They are finding their results of using the CellTrak mobile platform are favorable and are beneficial to their field staff, schedulers and patients. Addressing the needs of their patients is the number one priority and with CellTrak that has become easier for all involved with the continuum of care via the platform and mobile application for field staff. As all companies know when you eliminate paper and manual processes, the organization sees results via better productivity as well as accurate real time data automatically flowing from the point of care to their clinical teams in the office.
Continuum Care Inc. deployed CellTrak in such a manner as to eliminate paper and manual processes of re-keying visit information to their firstHOSPICE system. Controlling mileage and travel time expenses was also part of the package and another of the values they saw with the service. CellTrak's integration with firstHOSPICE made this the premiere solution for the aides at Continuum Care Inc.
Tracy Sanders, the founder of Continuum Care Inc. said: “We are gaining better efficiencies through the automation CellTrak brings to our hospice. The time saved on eliminating manual processes of rekeying paper visit notes is a major benefit, and we are looking to increase our CellTrak usage by adding more devices to eliminate even more field staff paperwork. There is less paper, we get accurate visit time data for our payroll and this is one of the best ways to increase patient care time while using technology to help eliminate paper work for our aides. ”
Bobby Robertson at HEALTHCAREfirst commented: ”Many of our clients have benefited from utilizing CellTrak in conjunction with firstHOSPICE. Through our partnership, they are more easily able to deliver the best care possible to their patients while increasing productivity, compliance and data collection. ” “Making sure that patients before paperwork is the motto and goal of any agency using our combined products.”
"CellTrak’s goal is to provide our clients with the leading point-of-care mobile platform in the industry.” shared Michael K. Wons, President and CEO of CellTrak Technologies, “The implementation of the integrated solution by the Continuum Care team highlights how sustainable value can be derived by making the investment in mobile healthcare applications that run on Smartphone’s with the goal of improving overall patient outcomes at the point of care.”
