NASHVILLE, Tenn., February 3rd, 2022 / — Amedisys, Inc., the third largest hospice provider in the United States, announced today that it has completed the enterprise adoption of Medalogix Muse. Amedisys caregivers can now prioritize their most critical patients through hands-on insights provided by Medalogix Muse in coordination with Amedisys’ clinical data.
With more than 500 locations in 38 states, Amedisys consistently seeks opportunities to leverage technology in the advancement of patient care at the bedside, driven by a commitment to transform the patient’s end-of-life experience.
“Muse helps us focus care on patients in the final seven days of life,” says Dr. Amy Moss, SVP of Hospice Clinical Operations for Amedisys. “Muse provides an objectivity to final week of life assessments that we didn’t have before. Combined with our clinicians’ expertise, our patients and their families receive the care that matters most in the final days of life.”
Muse not only identifies more patients who need higher intensity of services, but also better equips the care team to act. “Muse presents accessible insights and improves operational efficiencies by encouraging dialogue with our clinicians for patients most in need,” Dr. Moss adds. “The collaboration between Amedisys and Medalogix aligns with our values and vision, to be an industry leader in quality patient care.”
