November Designated for Month Long Industry Awareness Initiative
November 8, 2012 – AUSTIN, TEXAS – Kinnser Software, Inc., an industry leader in home health care technology clinical and business solutions, embraces November as “National Home Care & Hospice Month.” Millions of seniors, disabled citizens, chronic condition sufferers and rehabilitation patients depend on home care treatment to recover from illness or injury, manage chronic disease and avoid lengthy, costly hospitalization. National Home Care & Hospice Month is created to bring about more awareness of the essential care delivered by 12,000 home health care agencies to millions of individual home health patients in the U.S.
Home-based care for the disabled, elderly and chronically ill has proven to be a highly effective method of treatment. Caring for these individuals in the comfort of their own homes utilizing advanced technologies can be clinically superior and helps to economically manage chronic diseases that account for the majority America’s health care spending.
“Home care clinicians and patients are the reason we do what we do. We are proud to provide a technology that truly is clinician-focused, which in turn enhances personal attention with patients,” says Kinnser Software, Inc. founder and president Chris Hester. “Kinnser is delighted to help promote National Home Care & Hospice Month and salutes the thousands of dedicated patient care advocates in home health.”
With an approximate ten percent national market share in home health care technology solutions, Kinnser Software enthusiastically supports the home care industry and is an active member in the state and national associations which advocate for home care, including the National Association for Home Care and Hospice.
