HomeCare Connect Rolls Out TextConnect

HomeCare Connect, which provides in-home caregivers to injured workers, announced the launch of a free texting service to allow clients to communicate with care givers.

HomeCare Connect said that during its initial contact with injured workers, it asks if clients prefer to communicate via text or phone calls. The company said 72 percent choose texts.

The company said the service is available in both English and Spanish.

“Texting is convenient and fast,” said Managing Partner Vonesa Wenzel in a prepared statement. “People tend to send calls from unknown numbers to voicemail and end up playing phone tag with the clinical care coordinator.”

HomeCare Connect developed its TextConnect technology internally, integrating it into its proprietary, CareLink platform that drives home health management services in workers’ compensation. Care coordinators text to check in with injured workers and answer their questions, and CareLink automatically texts injured workers regarding nursing visits, durable medical equipment deliveries, and updates on home modification and prosthetics, the company said.

The company, based in Winter Park, Florida, operates a network of 18,000 care providers.
