Tech-enabled health services company Seniorlink Inc and Humana Inc announce a 6-month pilot of Virtual Care Team, a collaborative effort to help provide additional care management to Humana’s Medicare Advantage members living at home.
The pilot is designed to allow Humana At Home care management teams to connect digitally with Humana Medicare Advantage members and their families through Vela, Seniorlink’s secure collaboration app, so that members with medical and functional challenges can maintain their independence and receive support at home.
Humana At Home is a division of Humana that identifies and supports Humana Medicare Advantage members who have multiple chronic conditions, struggle with daily activities and are frequently hospitalized, as well as their family members and caregivers, a media release from Seniorlink Inc explains.
“We are pleased to collaborate with Humana, a respected, innovative industry leader, that shares our commitment to supporting family caregivers and our vision of leveraging technology to impact care delivery for complex individuals,” says Tom Riley, President and CEO of Seniorlink, in the release.
The six-month pilot will include up to 250 Humana Medicare Advantage members and family caregivers in 34 states across the country.
“Humana remains committed to the long-term health of our members and to helping seniors across the country achieve their best possible health,” states Cheri Greenfield La Tour, Humana Senior Vice President of Home Care Operations. “By working on this pilot with Seniorlink, we hope to keep learning and building on best practices to help our Medicare Advantage members experience their highest quality of life in their own homes.”
