In my current keynote speech, Home Health 2020: Six Pillars of the AOTF Agency Of the Future, I talk about the Technology Pillar. It’s clear to me that the leaders in home health Care in the future will invest heavily in technology in order to increase the productivity of their field staff. The shortage of nurses and therapists means that we need to find new ways to help our field staff members serve patients more effectively.

Recently, the Visiting Nurse Service of New York, the largest single location home health company in the country, began to implement the Mobility XE Virtual Private Network from Net Motion.

Randy Cleghorne, chief technology officer, VNSNY explained that through the wireless deployment, the VNS wants to provide clinicians easy access to information without interfering with the primary job of patient care. NetMotion’s software helps the workforce stay reliably connected and productive, enabling team members to focus on their jobs, not the technology.

Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing for NetMotion Wireless, Andy Willett pointed out that VNSNY is at the technological forefront in home health care delivery and patient care.

VNSNY has nearly 10,000 care providers that make more than 2.2 million home visits per year throughout New York City and Westchester and Nassau counties to an average of more than 30,000 patients each day.

What are you doing to invest in technology to improve the productivity of your agency? How is technology helping you grow your business and get ready for the future?
