WellSky joins coalition to move care to home

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – WellSky has joined the Moving Health Home coalition, a group of 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 and enabled through greater use of telehealth services, remote patient monitoring, patient engagement tools, and care coordination technology, the coalition says. 

“The pandemic clearly demonstrated that the home is a viable site of care, and that the future of health care is at home,” said Krista Drobac, founder of MHH. “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. 

“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.” 

Founding members of MHH include Amazon Care, Landmark Health, Signify Health, Dispatch Health, Elara Caring, Intermountain Healthcare, Home Instead and Ascension.
