OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#digitalhealthcare--As counties across the Bay Area continue to struggle with a rising homeless population, an Oakland-based software company is providing a customizable platform designed to help a local agency deliver much needed information and resources timely and efficiently to the homeless population.
Elemeno Health has partnered with Alameda County Care Connect’s Whole Person Care program to help community health workers from various agencies assess the health and housing needs of their homeless clients and help connect those clients with area organizations that provide help.
With the Elemeno Health cloud-based platform, available via a mobile or desktop device, community health workers can instantly guide their client and deliver information about a number of services, including housing, social, behavioral, and substance abuse help. Information is updated on a regular basis, and is accessible to all frontline team members, expanding their capabilities to help those in need connect with the appropriate agency. As a result, access to existing county resources improved significantly.
“With the Elemeno Health platform available via our mobile devices in just a few seconds, we have an opportunity to deliver a more coordinated approach to providing care and services to our clients,” said Kathleen Clanon, M.D., medical director at Alameda County Care Connect. “Our end goal is to help our clients regain their health and independence.”
The partnership between Elemeno Health and Alameda County Care Connect started first as a pilot program and blossomed into a more comprehensive relationship.
“Frontline staff at agencies and hospitals across the country are overburdened with information and struggling to keep up with the latest protocols and information they need to do their job,” said Arup Roy-Burman, M.D., chief executive officer of Elemeno Health. “Our solution delivers relevant and actionable information tailored to specific workgroups, when and where they need it, in a digestible format. I am looking forward to continuing our initiative with Alameda County Care connect and with our other healthcare partners around the country.”
Elemeno Health was founded in 2016 in Oakland, California. Developed by front-line doctors and nurses, the Elemeno solution is in use in multiple large medical centers and county health systems nationally. Elemeno Health is backed by Launchpad Digital Health, Y Combinator, and the Global Health Impact Fund. Elemeno Health has been named one of the 2019 “Fierce 15” companies by FierceHealthcare. https://www.elemenohealth.com/.
