Hospice Of The Chesapeake Selects Netsmart myUnity To Propel Organizational Growth And Advance Value-Based Care Initiatives

Overland Park, KS (BUSINESS WIRE) - Netsmart and Hospice of the Chesapeake, a premier provider of hospice and palliative care services in Maryland, announce an advanced collaboration through the successful implementation of the myUnity® electronic health record (EHR) system. This move underscores Hospice of the Chesapeake's commitment to enhancing patient care, supporting organizational growth and embracing value-based care models.

Recognizing the need for an ONC-certified EHR solution, Hospice of the Chesapeake selected and is successfully leveraging myUnity to help enable the organization to succeed in the evolving value-based care programs. With myUnity, Netsmart can further support Hospice of the Chesapeake’s growth strategy through enhanced capabilities to drive efficiencies and optimize care delivery.

"Selecting myUnity fulfilled a strategic necessity for us," said Hospice of the Chesapeake CEO Rebecca Miller. "We needed a platform that could not only support our current infrastructure but also grow with us as we expand our services. It was crucial to invest in a platform that allows us to prioritize face time with our patients and families, rather than being bogged down by technical complexities."

Post-implementation, clinical staff at Hospice of the Chesapeake have achieved transformative milestones, including streamlined care processes and enhanced patient experience. The integration of myUnity has empowered clinicians with more cohesive and efficient care coordination, supporting efforts for increased face time with patients and families, while targeting administrative burdens.
