Orlando Health reaches agreement to deliver hospital-at-home program in Florida

by | Jan 30, 2023

  • The multi-year agreement will launch in early 2023.
  • Biofourmis was selected due to its industry-leading technological capabilities as well as breadth of operational, clinical and technology services for its end-to-end.
  • Orlando Health is a 3,238-bed system that includes 23 hospitals and emergency departments—18 of which are currently operational with five coming soon.
  • In FY 2022, Orlando Health served more than 142,000 inpatients and 3.9 million outpatients.

Orlando Health is partnering with Biofourmis, a leading global technology-enabled care delivery provider, to launch a hospital-at-home program for patients residing in Central Florida.

“We have been working closely with Orlando Health to develop a program that we anticipate will become one of the largest and most successful hospital-at-home programs in the U.S. and expand high-quality hospital-level care access across Central Florida,” said Kuldeep Singh Rajput, CEO and founder of Biofourmis. “Our solution is purpose built to scale as rapidly and as large as Orlando Health needs, including our end-to-end technology platform that delivers a comprehensive, continuously updated patient view and actionable care insights, as well as around-the-clock support from our technical, operational and clinical teams. In a short time, we expect hospital-at-home to become a popular care service for patients across the region, which will also ensure adequate access for critically ill and injured patients who require facility-based care.”

Orlando Health’s hospital-at-home program is expected to launch in early 2023. In a press release, the organization noted that volume is expected to grow steadily as the “health system gains experience with the new care delivery approach.”

The non-profit healthcare organization stated that Biofourmis’ solution continuously collects vital signs and physiologic signals, and its FDA-cleared Biovitals Analytics Engine creates a personalized baseline for each patient that can help clinicians provide the appropriate care.

Biofourmis also offers additional services that can support hospital-at-home programs, such as in-home ancillary service ordering and coordination and provider scheduling.

The agreement will allow Orlando Health providers review all data and insights on an updated clinician dashboard, giving them an in-depth look in a patient’s trajectory. Patients will also have access to their providers through home visits, as well as virtual visits and other communication through a patient app.

Orlando Health says it selected Biofourmis after a rigorous proposal evaluation process that included four other potential vendors.

“Delivering hospital-level care within the patient’s home has been a goal for Orlando Health. This comprehensive solution ensures the safest, highest-quality care as well as ease-of-use for patients and providers,” said Jamal Hakim, MD, Orlando Health Chief Operating Officer. “We are confident that our organization’s dedicated focus on patients, clinical excellence, and operational efficiency—supported by Biofourmis’ solution—will drive the growth of a successful hospital-at-home program.”

The announcement comes two months after Orlando Health rolled out its in-home hospital service.
