Deerfield Beach, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/24/2019 --Tellus, a leading provider of Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) technology solutions, announced today that it has signed an agreement to partner with Care Heroes, a provider of care plan management and caregiver engagement solutions. Under the agreement, the companies will offer each other's products and services to health plans in an effort to deliver added value through greater transparency and accountability in home health and personal care services.
Tellus provides its complete, end-to-end EVV solution, which includes:
- An easy-to-use, point-of-care mobile app,
- A web-based back-office administrator console for real-time visibility into visit status and care delivery,
- An intelligent, web-based claims processing technology that simplifies and speeds up reimbursement,
- Data aggregation that integrates data from disparate sources and
- Sophisticated reporting capabilities.

Care Heroes provides its care management and caregiver engagement solution, which includes:
- Powerful data analytics to monitor caregiver and patient compliance, improving outcomes for high-risk populations,
- Quality measurement reporting to aid in benchmarking care quality, reducing risk and keeping members at home,
- Incident and risk reports that allow care managers to be proactive instead of reactive and
- A caregiver engagement and incentive platform that rates and rewards top performers.
"We are excited to partner with Tellus," said Chiara Bell, CEO and Founder of Care Heroes. "We already share some health plan clients who are seeing the benefits of our combination of tools. It's only natural that we would expand on a broader scale."
Tellus' client portfolio includes state Medicaid providers as well as leading managed care organizations and enterprise provider networks across the country. These organizations can benefit from the enhanced business intelligence and analytics available through the two platforms.
"We are always looking for opportunities to deliver added value to our health plan clients," said, Brad Levine, CEO of Tellus. "Partnerships like this allow us to remain focused on EVV while bringing toolsets to our clients that help them improve the quality of care, reduce costs and achieve better outcomes."
