FORT MYERS, Fla. (November 29, 2021) Cypress at Home, a leading provider of home and community-based services for older adults in Fort Myers, Florida, received a Silver Award in the McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Awards in the Home Care category for implementing technology that helps patients effectively age in place.
Some of the successful initiatives recognized for making a difference include the implementation of a virtual care platform that allows patients to easily schedule and customize appointments, and the addition of telehealth robots to assess patient health and perform telemedicine visits.
“We are honored to win the Silver ‘Home Care: Innovator of the Year Award’ from McKnight’s,” said Joe Velderman, MCP, vice president of innovation. “The virtual care platform supporting the medical care team has been adopted tremendously well and has absolutely changed outcomes for many residents at Cypress Cove as well as community clients with Cypress at Home.”
The awards program is a joint production of McKnight’s Long-Term Care News, McKnight’s Senior Living and McKnight’s Home Care. The long-running program honors providers that convey how technology has improved care and operations in their organizations. The competition included three divisions: Skilled Nursing, Senior Living/Assisted Living, and Home Care. Each division is divided into four categories.
“This is a well-deserved honor for a provider that clearly has taken extra steps to distinguish itself and the care of its patients,” said McKnight’s Editorial Director John O’Connor.
Nominations were judged by an external panel of industry experts. All winners were honored during a virtual awards celebration last month at the McKnight’s Tech Summit. To see the full list of inductees and for more information about the program, visit mcknightstechawards.com.
