Insights available through Constant Therapy’s enterprise platform complement Elara Caring’s use of population health data, improving care plans for patients with neurological disorders. With the partnership, Elara clinicians can now deliver a highly-personalized course of therapeutic exercises – and measure patient progress – to best meet the needs of patients recovering from conditions such as stroke, brain injury or dementia. Simultaneously, Elara patients are given unlimited access to the Constant Therapy mobile app – allowing them to maintain engagement with their therapy program outside of their scheduled clinical visits.

“Elara Caring is well recognized for its use of advanced technology and data insights that help proactively treat and monitor patients,” said Mark Salley, VP of Innovations and Rehab Solutions, Elara Caring. “We are wholeheartedly dedicated to delivering compassionate, cost-effective care to our patients by leveraging the latest and most innovative tools available. With the integration of Constant Therapy’s digital program, we’ve improved therapeutic outcomes and look forward to building on our momentum.”

Added Salley, “We employ 26,000 caregivers across 17 states. By streamlining the design of personalized therapy programs – and efficiently documenting patient progress – we aim to alleviate clinician burnout, promote workplace wellness, and solidify Elara Caring’s position as an employer of choice.”

“Elara Caring, a trailblazer in the home health industry, is revolutionizing patient care through cutting-edge technology and data-driven solutions,” said Veera Anantha, Founder and CEO, Constant Therapy Health. “As we collaborate with Elara Caring, we’re excited to contribute to their mission of delivering exceptional, personalized care to every patient they serve who is diagnosed with a neurological disorder or brain injury.”
