Servicing Home Health to Curb Healthcare Costs

by RaeAnne Marsh

axxessRecognizing that advances in technology along with the need to curb healthcare costs were spurring growth in the historically under-utilized home health segment, John Olajide founded Axxess to provide home health software to agencies nationwide. Many in the Greater Phoenix area use the cloud-based program that integrates all aspects of the home health agency’s operations in real time.

Among the features is a built-in electronic visit verification that uses GPS to verify when a caregiver is in the patient’s home. “In the past, the home health agencies couldn’t prove they had actually done the service,” Olajide says. This feature will also help Medicare take action against fraudulent claims, which, he says, the FBI assesses to be in the tens of billions of dollars.
