SAN FRANCISCO, July 21, 2016Wanda™ , recognized for bringing new and proven technologies to home-centered care, today announced that the Glendale, Calif.-headquartered A to Z Home Health Care, Inc. will deploy Wanda's predictive analytics and behavioral guidance to improve outcomes and enhance patient satisfaction.
"We believe the Wanda solution will help us drive patient care to the next level and reduce costly hospital readmissions," said Lusine Ovsepian, CEO for A to Z Home Health Care. "Real-time analytics will provide our care managers clear visual guidance, reliably identifying high risk patients so that we can intervene promptly. For chronic disease patients, Wanda can alert us up to seven days in advance of a likely adverse event that could otherwise result in a hospital readmission. Wanda's quick, well-validated personality assessment will scientifically predict the probability of a person adhering to a prescribed care plan – and tells us exactly how to relate to each individual most effectively. We intend to use these insights to better match our nurses with the patients we serve. Because of our commitment to a uniquely multicultural community, we value Wanda's collaboration in tailoring their platform to serve the many language requirements of our clients."
Through years of research conducted at UCLA, Wanda has established that biometric data collection must be easy, accurate and optimized through machine learning. Beyond powerful analytics and reliable alerts, Wanda recognizes that patient adherence is the most significant risk to any home-centered care program. Wanda now brings their science-driven advancements in personalized medicine to home-centered care.
"A to Z Home Health Care is an innovative, patient-centered organization as evidenced by their long-term commitment to their multi-cultural clientele," said Mark Heinemeyer, CCO of Wanda. "They recognize that patient satisfaction is not just about how many stars they earn in a survey, but that satisfied engagement is absolutely critical to recovery. They know that when patients and family members are informed and empowered, they accept greater accountability and are more receptive to their caring guidance."
For over 10 years, A to Z Home Health Care has been providing patient-centered, quality-driven, sustainable and accessible care to patients in the home environment. Their team of value-driven and compassionate professionals deliver a comprehensive range of services in a timely, caring, and efficient manner while maintaining the highest standards of excellence in all areas. A to Z Home Health Care is committed to training and developing its employees to the highest degree of service and protecting both employees and clients from harm and abuse.
"In addition to enhancing patient outcomes, the analytics and reporting tools from Wanda will facilitate better communication with our patients' other medical providers," said Vic Arutyunyan, director of marketing for A to Z Home Health Care. "Ultimately this benefits patients and ensures the delivery of the best care possible."
