Cypress Basin Announces Partnership

Curantis Solutions Announces New Hospice Software Client, Cypress Basin Hospice, at NHPCO Conference

  • News

ADDISON, Texas, April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Curantis Solutions, LLC, the software solutions company focused exclusively on serving the hospice and palliative care sector, announces that Cypress Basin Hospice, based in Mount Pleasant, Texas, will deploy Curantis’s innovative, seamless, mobile-enabled, software-as-a-service solution.

The announcement comes at the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) Conference in Washington, DC, April 30-May 2.  Visitors are welcome to try the software at the Curantis exhibit (Booth #234).

J. Read Pearson, Executive Director of Cypress Basin Hospice, explained why his organization chose Curantis Solutions, saying, “Simply put, Curantis technology is designed with hospice in mind; it is not an adaptation of home health or other provider types such as acute care providers.  Why would we let the ergonomic considerations of a markedly dissimilar delivery vehicle dictate the time and motion for our operations? We just don’t see that complementing and improving our efficacy or the quality of our care.”

Pearson added, “Equally important, Curantis software offers us that crucial degree of flexibility.  We define how our caregivers deliver service in the field, based on the needs of their patients, and the software accommodates that, not vice versa, as with so many systems ostensibly adapted for hospice field staff. This is the approach that will save them a great deal of time and labor and make their time in the field so much more enjoyable and therefore more productive. It will be the same and more for medical records and billing.”

John Carreker, Curantis chief executive, said, “Our selection by Cypress Basin Software validates our strategy of creating solutions for the unique needs of the hospice sector. We are pleased to be able to facilitate the demanding and exacting job of dedicated hospice workers. Our solution will save them time while ensuring full compliance and let them focus on what they do best: deliver high-quality care to end-of-life patients.”

Since 1986, Cypress Basin Hospice has been providing high-quality end-of-life care throughout Northeast Texas. The non-profit, community-owned organization currently has three offices serving sixteen counties.

With the hospice sector continuing to experience strong growth, driven by the aging population and patients’ preference for post-acute and cost-saving healthcare options, Curantis recognized the need for a solution suite designed with intensive hospice clinicians’ involvement, cloud-hosted and delivered via the SaaS model.

About Cypress Basin Hospice

Cypress Basin Hospice is an established leader in providing end of life care throughout Northeast Texas. Cypress Basin was founded in 1986 by a group of local civic minded individuals who envisioned a community centered organization that supported their friends and families through the difficult last weeks and months of an illness. These founders work tirelessly to raise the needed funds and spent countless hours researching and then creating the right kind of organization to serve that purpose. Today the agency serves sixteen counties through their three offices.
