CareCentrix, Medullan to develop virtual tools

Friday, September 15, 2017

HARTFORD, Conn. – CareCentrix has partnered with Medullan, a digital health firm, to develop virtual care tools that connect providers, patients and payers through flexible, mobile technology outside the four walls of the hospital. The alliance marries Medullan’s digital expertise and care experience platform, VARA, with CareCentrix’s HomeBridge technology, according to a press release. “The home is underappreciated as an alternative to other care settings, even though patients want to be there,” said John Driscoll, CEO for CareCentrix. “It is increasingly possible for patients to heal at home, thanks to advances in technology, analytics, and in-home monitoring. Technological advances, however, do not matter if you cannot successfully engage and connect the healthcare team.”
