Hospice and palliative care company Compassus has named Dennis Wade as senior vice president of human resources and organization development.
Wade previously served as executive vice president and chief human resources officer for Corizon Health. He joined the prison health care services company in October 2011 after holding senior HR role at a regional health system in Florida and Brunos Supermarkets in Alabama.
“We are very pleased to welcome Dennis to our growing team,” Jim Deal, Compassus CEO, said in a release. “With more than 30 years of experience in human resources, he has a proven track record of creating colleague-centric business strategies that focus on culture, engagement and retention.”
Compassus last month said it was buying fellow local venture Hospice Advantage to create a company with a presence in 28 states.
Health care analytics company Medalogix has partnered with Homecare Homebase, a home health electronic medical record company.
Through the deal, terms of which were not disclosed, providers will have access to Medalogix analytics to identify at-risk patients. The Nashville company will also incorporate clinical workflow steps and other population health management solutions.
"We're thrilled to partner with Homecare Homebase to provide software and services that will have a meaningful impact on patient care," Dan Hogan, Medalogix CEO, said in a release. "This year has already been a significant growth year for Medalogix. More importantly, we have been able to provide solutions to more post-acute care providers so they can better service their patients."
Post-acute care analytics company Medalogix has been chosen as a finalist and awarded $37,500 through Harvard Business School's Health Acceleration Challenge.
The challenge judged applicants on their ability to create and improve value in the health care system. Medalogix submitted its 'Bridge' solution, which uses analytics to identify and facilitate end of life care.
As a finalist, Medalogix will have the opportunity to win an additional $50,000, which will be awarded next year to one of the four finalists based on how the organizations scale. The company will also have the opportunity to present at the Forum on Health Care Innovation, and Harvard Business School will write a case study on the company and its approach.
"Being chosen as one of the more impactful health care innovations by such a prestigious institution like Harvard is a great compliment to us and validating to our mission," Dan Hogan, Medalogix founder and CEO, said in a release. "For years we've been working with our heads down to innovate and build meaningful technology that improves patient care. Harvard's Health Acceleration Challenge is a big stage that will give us the platform to affect even more patients in the long run."
