Curantis Solutions Announces Customer Rollout with Crossroads Hospice

  • News

Addison, Texas – (October 8, 2015) – Curantis Solutions, LLC, the software solutions company focused exclusively on serving the hospice sector, announces the rollout of its innovative, seamless, cloud-based software at Crossroads Hospice, a top 15 hospice provider in the country.

The announcement comes at the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) 16th Clinical Team and Pediatric Intensive Conference in Grapevine, Texas.  Visitors are welcome to trial the new software at the Curantis exhibit (Booth #804).

Clayton Farmer, President of Carrefour Associates which manages the Crossroads Hospice agencies, explained why Curantis was his company’s choice for improving both the quality and efficiency of his company’s hospice services:  “Curantis is the only complete suite of hospice-focused solutions that was designed first and foremost for hospice companies, not just re-architected to loosely fit hospice needs.  When we studied our options, it became clear that Curantis’ unique ‘plan-of-care-centric’ design lets our caregivers focus on their patients’ plan of care, rather than on paperwork and compliance.  And it does so with a single look and feel no matter where or how they work – on smartphone, tablet, or desktop.”

Farmer added, “Curantis will let us automate our clinicians’ workflow by integrating their clinical and plan of care notes and it will also solve for compliance with its end-to-end solution that conforms to government regulations related to our performance.”

John Carreker, Curantis CEO, said, “We are confident that our rollout with Crossroads will demonstrate the importance of a hospice solution designed for the sector’s unique needs.  We recognize that hospice clinicians are trained to perform an essential and sensitive role at a most intense and delicate time for patients, and their work is time-consuming and rigorous.  We see Curantis as giving them the gift of time – time they now lose to the heavy demands of compliance and paperwork – time that they can in turn devote to quality of care. In doing so, we are living up to our company name, which is Latin for caregiver.”

Crossroads Hospice provides services in 11 markets with approximately 1,800 employees and an Average Daily Census (ADC) of 3,300 patients in seven states:  Georgia, Kansas, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee.  Founded in 1995, the company is noted for its unique, care-focused programs such as Veterans Recognition, Hispanic Outreach, Grief Recovery, Memorials, and EvenMore Care©, the latter designed to serve patients during periods of intense need.

The hospice industry is projected to reach $27 billion by 2017, on a growth rate of 7.4% annually, driven by the aging of the population and patients’ preference for post-acute and cost-saving healthcare options.  Because of that rapid growth, Curantis recognized the sector’s need for a solution suite designed with intensive hospice clinicians’ involvement.
