Workpath and Naborforce Announce Partnership to Improve the Way Support Is Delivered to Aging Adults
RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 26, 2018
RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Workpath, a Richmond, Virginia-based technology company that helps healthcare organizations distribute work opportunities to their labor, has announced a partnership with Naborforce, another Richmond, Virginia-based company whose technology platform connects aging adults to a network of freelance care providers for social engagement and on-demand support. Both companies were established in the Greater Richmond area in 2018 with the goal of using innovative technology to simplify the way qualified individuals are identified, organized, managed, and dispatched to fill critical needs in healthcare facilities and at home.
"Workpath and Naborforce are both solving the problem of labor coordination," said Eddie Peloke, CEO of Workpath. "We have proven that innovative technology can be leveraged to improve the way critical services are performed and coordinated throughout the healthcare industry and community at large." While Naborforce's services are "non-medical" in nature, they often either precede or supplement traditional medical care.
Workpath, which was named a Top 10 Healthcare Startup for 2018 by Healthcare Tech Outlook magazine, is currently used by health systems, home health providers, healthcare staffing agencies, nursing organizations, phlebotomy labor providers, and other healthcare leaders around the country to seamlessly schedule work opportunities. The HIPAA-compliant labor management platform interfaces with major electronic health record (EHR) systems like Epic, Cerner, and Allscripts.
Naborforce will use Workpath's technology to organize and dispatch its network of compassionate individuals with a common goal of supporting older adults in the community. Naborforce contracts with "Nabors" who believe in their mission of helping elders while seeking flexible income and the ability to control their work schedules. Prospective Nabors undergo a rigorous vetting process before being invited to join the Naborforce network. Services provided by Nabors include help around the home (companionship, preparing meals, reading and conversation, correspondence and bills, organizing, and help with technology) or around town (grocery shopping, picking up prescriptions, medical appointments, shopping outings, trips to the salon, and social events).
"Naborforce's approach of looking right in the community to source care and support for the aging population is unique. Given demographic trends, the demand for our services is vast and growing. And on the other side, there is no shortage of qualified, compassionate care providers. Our largest challenge is the ability to connect the two in a manner that makes it reliable, simple and accessible," said Paige Wilson, Founder and CEO of Naborforce. "Our integration with Workpath will greatly enhance our ability to offer on-demand services and dispatch vetted Nabors when and where they're needed most."
Workpath builds intelligent technologies that help healthcare organizations and other specialized industries send work opportunities to their employees and vendors with ease. The HIPAA-compliant platform schedules, dispatches, and manages teams of all sizes. Workpath helps healthcare organizations simplify and connect. Become more digital, yet more human. www.workpath.co
