Qualidigm, the mission-driven, national healthcare consulting company in Wethersfield, Conn., was the proud recipient of the Connecticut Association for Healthcare at Home’s (CAHCH) 2015 Friend of Healthcare at Home Award. Qualidigm was recognized for providing support to CAHCH through Association participation and contributions, as well as innovative approaches to assist home care and hospice industries statewide.

“We are honored to receive the Friend of Healthcare at Home Award from our valued partner, the Connecticut Association for Healthcare at Home,” said Tim Elwell, Qualidigm president and CEO. “Our mission of improving the quality, safety, and cost-effectiveness of healthcare through transformational change is closely aligned with CAHCH, and our initiatives in home health and hospice both support and compliment their good work.”

“Qualidigm has been a longtime partner of the Association by providing guidance and education related to clinical and regulatory compliance to Connecticut’s licensed home health agencies,” said Deborah Hoyt, CAHCH president and CEO. “Qualidigm’s expertise has strengthened our industry and benefited our providers both individually and collectively to ensure that the state’s residents receive the right care at the right time in a cost-effective manner,” Hoyt added.

Recently, Qualidigm brought Qualiance®, an innovative, first of its kind web-based compliance tool to the market to help home health and hospice agencies navigate and stay current with the intensified regulatory environment. Qualiance® offers unparalleled access to real-time compliance data enabling agencies to pinpoint deficiencies and take immediate corrective action to help avoid costly penalties, decrease risk and maintain business viability.

In addition to Qualiance®, Qualidigm is also a leader in providing a rich program of educational offerings for providers across the care continuum, sharing national and data-driven perspectives on patient engagement, heart disease, COPD, care transitions, patient safety, palliative care, hospice, data analysis and interpretation, motivational interviewing and quality improvement interventions.

Qualidigm and other award recipients were recognized at the CAHCH Annual Meeting and Exposition held at the Hartford Marriot Downtown on Thursday, November 5th.  This year’s conference theme, Transforming Healthcare at Home: Solutions for Population Health Management, Care Transitions, and Gaps in Care, featured exhibitors, speakers and breakouts including a session led by Ann Spenard, Qualidigm principal and vice president, on the home health version of INTERACT®, a quality improvement program that focuses on the management of acute change in patient condition.
