Current Health Awarded 2022 MedTech Breakthrough Award for Best Hospital Technology Implementation
Current Health has been awarded “Best Hospital Technology Implementation” in the 2022 MedTech Breakthrough Awards program for our role in supporting health systems across the U.S. to implement innovative care-at-home programs. The award speaks to the power and flexibility of Current Health’s enterprise care-at-home platform, as well as to our people and processes which ensure the success of building out scalable home-based care models.
To effectively launch and manage care at home, health systems require an end-to-end solution that connects the technology being used to deliver care in the home with the teams and services to act on it. Current Health has proven itself a prominent partner in implementing world-class home-based care initiatives, through its winning implementation playbook that combines technology, people, and processes. Uniquely, Current Health supports programs across clinical conditions and acuity levels by providing a flexible, enterprise platform that can be tailored to any patient population. To support this level of configurability at scale, Current Health partners closely with customers in the end-to-end design, deployment, and scale of their program.
Current Health’s Clinical Operations Managers are clinicians who are equipped to tailor evidence-based implementation playbooks to the individual workflows of each organization. Each implementation begins by mapping the end-to-end patient journey, from the time they enter the hospital to when they are discharged from the hospital. Current Health then generates evidence-based clinical pathways tailored to individual patient conditions to help the health system determine vital signs to capture, alarm thresholds, and escalation protocols. Current Health also provides onsite training and a dedicated support team to ensure care teams have the resources to manage patients 24/7, no matter where they are.
Launching a Hospital-at-Home program takes a village, and our program wouldn’t be possible without the Current Health team. The team provided us not just with the technology to launch our Hospital at Home program, but was a strategic partner in creating customized workflows that ensure our physicians and care teams can act on the patient insights it provides.Candy Szymanski, Associate Vice President of Hospital at Home, UMass Memorial Health
“Our customers and their patients are at the heart of everything we do at Current Health, and we are honored that the MedTech Breakthrough Awards committee has recognized our team’s commitment to their success. It’s not easy to build and scale new at-home care models and it is a true pleasure to partner with some of the most innovative health systems in the country to enable them to provide high-quality care at home.Christopher McGhee, CEO and co-founder, Current Health
