ROCHESTER, N.Y. & LOUISVILLE, Ky.–MediSked, LLC, a leader in human services technology solutions, and ResCare, Inc., one of the largest providers of community care in the U.S., today announced that ResCare has selected MediSked’s integrated software suite to underpin its Connected Home care model – delivering new tools to support workplace efficiency and job enhancement and to pursue continued advancements in safety, quality and compliance so that people can live their best life.
“Our partnership with MediSked sets another precedent in our industry,” said ResCare President and CEO Jon B. Rousseau. “With the addition of an electronic health record (EHR) to our industry care management solutions that include pharmacy, behavioral health services and remote monitoring and caregiving technologies, we’re establishing a Connected Home model of care across the breadth of our states and people served, today and over the coming years. Our model will lead the way for needed innovations in care solutions that push our industry forward to work smarter, improve connections across teams and homes, and improve the quality of care and safety outcomes for individuals in the communities we serve – helping them to live their best life.”
ResCare will implement MediSked Connect – Agency Management Platform and MediSked Portal – Person-Centered Platform to deliver EHRs and personalized collaboration, communication and empowerment tools across its Residential Services operations serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). ResCare will also deploy MediSked Connect Exchange – Multi-Agency Business Intelligence Platform, to unify operational, financial and care management data from multiple, disparate systems and make it available for monitoring, analysis and reporting. Together, these tools will provide ResCare access to actionable alerts, trends and predictive analytics to identify risks and improve outcomes – helping individuals supported with home and community-based services (HCBS).
“At MediSked, we are constantly asking how we can deliver the best solutions to drive operational efficiencies, improve outcomes and provide support, empowerment and independence to individuals,” said Doug Golub, president of MediSked. “Our platforms are uniquely positioned to support ResCare’s Connected Home initiative, augmenting its existing investments in pharmacy solutions, smart home monitoring and remote telecaregiving and telehealth. By combining best-in-class technology and high-quality, outcomes-based services, ResCare is demonstrating its commitment to innovation and a continued dedication to person-centered care and improved quality, safety and outcomes.”
“A best-in-class EHR and accompanying connectivity, data warehouse and analytics solutions like we see with MediSked is a linchpin to better service models and our Connected Home build-out, and we look forward to a partnership with them,” said Mark Gildea, president of ResCare’s Residential IDD business.
