Patient-first platform for home medical equipment and supplies offers enhanced quality, visibility and high-touch support for Geisinger Health Plan and its members
Tomorrow Health, the patient-first platform for home-based care, today announced a partnership with Geisinger Health Plan (GHP) to provide more than half a million patients with access to curated home durable medical equipment (DME) and supplies.
Tomorrow Health was founded to solve the complex challenge that patients and their families face in coordinating and delivering care at home – from finding the right equipment to communicating between physicians and insurance. The company streamlines the home-based care experience by matching patients with best-in-class medical equipment suppliers, simplifying the ordering, product selection and delivery processes, and offering high-touch support at every step.
By bringing first-of-its-kind technology and data-driven intelligence to the DME industry, Tomorrow Health’s platform offers increased reliability and value to payors, provides tools for growth and operational efficiency for DME suppliers, and saves physicians and their staff time spent on coordination so they can focus on patient care.
“We are excited to partner with Geisinger and to connect GHP members and their families with vital equipment and support to enable them to stay healthy at home,” said Vijay Kedar, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Tomorrow Health. “The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need to support vulnerable patients with critical home-based care resources. We are committed to getting patients the equipment and supplies they need as quickly and efficiently as possible, and are grateful to partner with innovative leading organizations like Geisinger to enhance their members’ care.”
As of January 1, 2021, all home medical equipment and supplies orders for GHP members are being coordinated by Tomorrow Health. By aggregating data on reliability, operational efficiency and patient satisfaction, Tomorrow Health matches GHP members with high-quality DME suppliers in GHP’s provider network. Members also have access to Tomorrow Health’s dedicated team of Care Advocates for guidance and support throughout the process, from product selection to delivery.
“As a single point of contact for our patients’ home medical equipment needs, Tomorrow Health will improve the support and quality of care that GHP members receive, during what is typically a very challenging time for members and their caregivers,” said Kurt J. Wrobel, President of Geisinger Health Plan and Executive Vice President of Geisinger Insurance Operations. “We’re pleased to drive the future of home-based care with Tomorrow Health as our partner.”
