Parachute Health integrates with Altruista Health

Tuesday, January 15, 2019

NEW YORK – Parachute Health has partnered with Altruista Health to help healthcare providers reduce costs and errors associated with ordering DME. By integrating Parachute Health’s ePrescribing solution into Altruista’s GuidingCare platform, the companies have developed and implemented a new function that matches patients with DME based on care provider recommendations and complicated insurance requirements. Once the function identifies and selects the correct equipment, orders are automatically approved and processed, the companies say. “By partnering with Altruista, we’ve taken another step toward improving the care delivery process,” said David Gelbard, CEO and founder of Parachute Health. “With the integration of Parachute’s solution into Altruista’s GuidingCare platform, we expect to see reductions in spending and readmissions, and increases in patients satisfaction.” Altruista’s GuidingCare platform is used by health plans and provider organizations to streamline care management workflows; facilitate coordination among clinical, behavioral and community resources; accelerate quality improvement; and promote engagement for more than 38 million members. The new function will be introduced by Visiting Nurse Service of New York. "Since VNSNY CHOICE’s Select Health program began utilizing Parachute in December members are receiving their medical supplies quicker and the lines of communication are excellent," said Sal Bastardi, vice president of corporate administrative services. "The Select Health team can check the system at any given time to determine the status of the order."
