OVERLAND PARK, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--WellSky, a leading health and community care technology company, today announced that WellSky CareInsights for Hospice has been selected as “Best Predictive Analytics Solution” in the seventh annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by MedTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global health and medical technology market. This is the fourth year in a row that WellSky has been honored by MedTech Breakthrough.
WellSky CareInsights for Hospice is an advanced predictive analytics solution that helps agencies provide smarter end-of-life care — improving care quality while ensuring patients and families get the critical support they need. The software makes it easy for providers to identify, understand, and address changes in the health status of patients by putting real-time clinical information and predictive analytics at their fingertips.
The breakthrough solution provides visibility into a patient's health status with predictive mortality risk identification and other information necessary to plan for their care. It also provides notifications within the clinician’s workflow, so they are better able to proactively understand the changes in patient status within the hospice setting: mortality likelihood, live discharge risk, and upcoming visit schedule.
“Each year, more than a million people pass away while receiving hospice care, but on average they get less than three hours of facetime during the last week of their lives with a registered nurse or social worker,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “Using WellSky CareInsights for Hospice, providers get the data they need to improve care quality during the time a family needs care and compassion the most. Congratulations to WellSky on this important innovation and being our choice, once again, for the ‘Best Predictive Analytics Solution’ award.”
Powered by data from over 4 million patient visits, CareInsights for Hospice can help caregivers prioritize skilled care at the right time, improve care planning with live discharge risk predictions, provide patient-specific insights and ultimately, manage population health with visibility into the provider’s entire census.
“We are thrilled to receive this incredible recognition from MedTech Breakthrough,” said Bill Miller, CEO of WellSky. “We believe that harnessing predictive analytics creates a data-driven, scalable process to help ensure patients and their families receive the highest quality care. With best-in-class solutions that are purpose-built for hospice, WellSky is committed to addressing the unique needs of end-of-life care providers.”
WellSky has received two previous awards for “Best Predictive Analytics Solution” from MedTech Breakthrough, and in 2022, the company was recognized with the “Healthcare Analytics Innovation Award.”
The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work, and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Telehealth, Clinical Administration, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), Virtual Care, Medical Devices, Medical Data, and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 4,000 nominations from over 17 different countries throughout the world.
