Florida health care provider deploys web-based electronic health record (EHR) technology suite supporting hospice, palliative care, and home health.
LENEXA, Kan. — March 12, 2019 — WellSky, a leading health and community care technology company backed by TPG Capital, today announced a partnership with Chapters Health System to deploy and develop its web-based electronic health record (EHR) technology solutions. Chapters Health and its affiliates will implement hospice EHR and palliative care software from Consolo, a WellSky company, as well as WellSky Home Health software to enhance the continuum of post-acute patient care services provided across eight Florida counties.
After an extensive review of EHR systems, Chapters Health selected WellSky’s platform to streamline their workflow and operations, allowing providers to focus on delivering value-based care to patients and their families. The platform delivers solution modules that fulfill Chapters Health’s need for a comprehensive technology partner that supports their full continuum of care, which includes care navigation, home health, palliative care, hospice, medication management, and HIPAA-compliant secure messaging. WellSky designed its innovative technology to enable quality-driven patient and family care in a broad range of care settings, which is well aligned with the organizational and quality of care goals of Chapters Health.
“Over the last year, Chapters Health team members and leadership spent a significant amount of time on our EHR vendor selection process,” said Andrew Molosky, MBA, FACHE, CHPCA, president and chief executive officer at Chapters Health. “Participants throughout our organization provided input on our requirements and feedback on potential solutions. Consolo quickly became the frontrunner and our ultimate vendor of choice. When WellSky acquired Consolo, we also selected WellSky’s home health solution, further strengthening the strategic alignment of our companies.”
Through this partnership, Chapters Health and its affiliates will have access to customizable care plans, billing support, robust analytics, reporting tools, and patient dashboards — in addition to exceptional training and support resources. Beyond functionality, the WellSky team’s deep expertise across clinical, technical, and business fields was also a deciding factor for Chapters Health. With this partnership, care coordination will be elevated, allowing patients full access to the correct Chapters Health service line for seamless quality of care. Additionally, the technology provider collaborated with Chapters Health throughout the selection process, and this commitment to open communication and true partnership will extend into implementation.
“We are honored to support Chapters Health as we work alongside them to develop new product enhancements to advance the quality of their care for patients and families,” said Bill Miller, CEO of WellSky. “When we met with their team, we recognized our well-aligned strategies and solutions suite would successfully support their needs. Chapters Health and WellSky both share a passion for ensuring exceptional care delivery at a time when patients need it most.”
“With WellSky by our side, we are in motion to really change the way health care is delivered in the areas we serve,” added Molosky.
