The Hospice Dynamix software platform is a patent-pending, AI-powered, cloud-based SaaS solution that provides hospice organizations with continuous, automated predictive analyses of their financial, marketing, and operational health. The solution is built on a continuously updated Predicted Length of Stay (PLOS) projection designated to every patient upon admission.

Xenex Announces World’s First Disinfection Tracking System

Businesswire | June 27, 2023

Portable Medical Equipment (PME) such as IV pumps, workstations on wheels (WOWs), and vitals machines can carry and transfer dangerous pathogens between rooms and patients within healthcare facilities because the equipment is often used and rolled between multiple patient rooms. Recognizing the importance of being able to track and report disinfection, Xenex Disinfection Services today announced TrackMate™, a patented device developed by hospitals for hospitals that provides automated tracking of disinfection/cleaning events for PME and hospital rooms. It’s the world’s first automated tracking system and solution for The Joint Commission standard IC 02.02.01 EP1, which focuses on the disinfection of PME. TrackMate is a small, easy-to-use device that attaches to PME and registers each disinfection\cleaning event stores the data in a secure portal, and provides the data that can be used for compliance and The Joint Commission reporting. Peer-reviewed studies demonstrated that twice as many PME disinfection events occurred when TrackMate was deployed and 100% of disinfection events were tracked and reported for compliance. TrackMate replaces low tech and often labor-intensive monitoring solutions currently being used in healthcare facilities, such as equipment tags, clipboards and paper checklists, and plastic bags placed over IV poles. It eliminates the need for the manual collection of disinfection event data for Joint Commission compliance reporting. In addition to tracking disinfection events for PME and rooms, TrackMate can be used anywhere there is a need for tracking disinfection/cleaning, logging of cleaning activity, or automated and remote monitoring of cleaning activity. For example, tracking the cleaning of surfaces in patient rooms, emergency and waiting rooms, nurse stations, kitchens, microbiology laboratories and mannequins in simulation centers. “Healthcare workers can’t look at an IV pole and know when it was last disinfected, which is why TrackMate is such a game changer. For the first time, disinfection/cleaning event status is being delivered to the user at the point of care. Nurses can quickly look at TrackMate and see when the last disinfection/cleaning event occurred. The CDC has stated that Candida auris is commonly spread via PME – so it’s incredibly important to know when the PME was last cleaned. Infection preventionists and hospital compliance personnel are going to be very excited to learn that we have a solution to IC 02.02.01,” said Dr. Mark “Tuck” Stibich, co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Xenex. TrackMate was invented by Dr. Chetan Jinadatha, Chief of the Infectious Diseases Division at the Central Texas Veterans Health Care System and Clinical Professor, School of Medicine, Texas A&M University. Commercialization of TrackMate is supported by the VA Technology Transfer Program, which facilitates the commercialization of VA inventions to benefit Veterans and the American public. Funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Central Texas Veterans Healthcare System supported scientific evaluation of the technology. TrackMate is a small (2”x5”) device that attaches to PME or can be placed in a room. It senses moisture (wipes) or UV light irradiation, collects all of the disinfection/cleaning events and keeps a log locally and online. Events are transmitted once a day through cellular signal to an online database. Supervisors can log in and retrieve the cleaning log for improving cleaning practices or validate compliance with policy. Battery life on each device is 3 years. About Xenex Disinfection Services Xenex is a world leader in innovative UV technology-based disinfection strategies and solutions. Xenex's mission is to enable its partners to save lives and reduce suffering by destroying the deadly microorganisms that can cause infections. Xenex is backed by well-known investors that include EW Healthcare Partners, Piper Sandler, Malin Corporation, Battery Ventures, Targeted Technology Fund II, Tectonic Ventures and RK Ventures.

WellSky® Joins Moving Health Home to Drive Policy Reforms, Paving the Way for Home-Based Care Transformation

businesswire | August 14, 2023

WellSky, a leading health and community care technology company, today announced it has joined the Moving Health Home (MHH) coalition. MHH comprises stakeholders working to advance federal and state policy to enable the home to be a clinical site of care. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for care in the home has been steadily increasing. According to a recent study, 70% of adults 50 and older prefer in-home care. This shift to home-based care is enabled through greater use of telehealth services, remote patient monitoring, patient engagement tools, and care coordination technology. “The pandemic clearly demonstrated that the home is a viable site of care and that the future of healthcare is at home,” said Krista Drobac, founder of Moving Health Home. “Our coalition strongly believes that by enacting policies that support providers and reduce barriers, we can make home-based care accessible to all patients who prefer it.” Since its founding in March 2021, MHH has successfully lobbied Congress to pass the two-year Hospital at Home waiver extension, introduced legislation to extend the Acute Hospital Care at Home waiver, and supported the fight against cuts to home health services through education, events, and other advocacy efforts. “The Moving Health Home coalition has already made significant progress on its goal to ensure our nation’s leaders understand and support the advances in home-based care and the value it provides,” said Margaret Haynes, CEO of Right at Home, a member organization of MHH. “Having a healthcare technology leader like WellSky on board only further strengthens our position as the leading voice for change on home-based care policy, and we look forward to partnering with them in our efforts.” Founding members of Moving Health Home include Amazon Care, Landmark Health, Signify Health, Dispatch Health, Elara Caring, Intermountain Healthcare, Home Instead and Ascension. “At WellSky, our focus is supporting providers caring for patients in the home with purpose-built technology, analytics, and tech-enabled services that help them deliver better, more efficient care,” said WellSky CEO Bill Miller. “When we come together to advance care delivery in the home, we can improve outcomes, lower costs, and elevate the patient and family experience. That’s why we’re excited to work closely with the members of Moving Health Home to shape the future of healthcare policy.” About WellSky® WellSky is one of America’s largest and most innovative healthcare technology companies leading the movement for intelligent, coordinated care. Our proven software, analytics, and services power better outcomes and lower costs for stakeholders across the health and community care continuum.
