CellTrak acquires MedShare, a homecare IT leader
SCHAUMBURG, Ill. and CAMBRIDGE, Ont. – CellTrak Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of integrated mobile solutions for the home healthcare, hospice, and private duty market segments in healthcare, has announced the acquisition of Canadian-based MedShare.
Serving the full spectrum of home healthcare organizations, the combined companies believe they will provide a wide range of innovative mobile solutions that meet the needs of agencies of all sizes.
“The MedShare team has built a successful portfolio of innovative mobile solutions that compliment an agency’s use of their back office and clinical applications,” said Michael K. Wons (pictured), President and CEO of CellTrak, “Our companies share similar values and technologies with a common goal of providing the best mobile solutions for the home and community care market and we are very excited to join forces with the employees, partners and clients of MedShare.”
Andrew Kaboff, Founder and Chief Business Development Officer for CellTrak commented, “With the acquisition of MedShare, CellTrak continues to enhance its talented team across Canada, while providing MedShare customers with stability and the confidence to expand their mobile point-of-care projects with the added strength of CellTrak’s patented mobile technology platform.”
Based in Cambridge, Ontario and in business since 2005, MedShare uses leading-edge mobile technology to transform the delivery of home healthcare services, yielding better medical outcomes and improved operational results. The MedShare solutions fill the gap between mobile clinical features and mobile scheduling applications that help enable the use of EHR solutions.
Home healthcare providers face excessive paperwork that takes time away from client care, inaccurate and inconsistent data on client history and insufficient processes for handling in-home care.
Furthermore, most home care professionals work remotely without access to patient information, care plans and up-to-date schedules. The combined offerings from MedShare and CellTrak solve the care delivery challenges.
“For 5 years, MedShare and CellTrak have been the drivers behind mobile home care solutions in Canada. The merger represents a force multiplier that will accelerate innovation and broaden the potential market for our solutions,” said Barry Billings, President of Medshare.
As a mobile solutions pioneer and leading provider of electronic visit verification solutions, CellTrak Technologies solves the four major problems facing home healthcare agencies; visit compliance, data collection and error reporting, mileage and time reimbursements and scheduling communication. Today, tens of thousands of homecare professionals use the CellTrak solution to manage the care processes for more than 250,000 patients a day.
To support continued growth, CellTrak has formed a new Canadian subsidiary known as CellTrak Canada, Inc. This new subsidiary will have offices throughout Canada.
