Cooley Medical Purchases CareTend® Home Infusion Software

Loyal Mediware customer of 25 years licenses CareTend software

Lenexa, KS, September 1, 2016- Mediware Information Systems, Inc., a provider of comprehensive post-acute healthcare software, announces that Cooley Medical has agreed to license CareTend software for its home infusion service line of business.

For more than thirty years, Cooley Medical has provided quality healthcare services including home infusion therapy, compounding pharmacy, clinical respiratory services, home medical equipment, home ventilation, and clinical respiratory across several locations in Kentucky and Virginia. Cooley Medical first licensed Mediware software 25 years ago. As the business continued to grow, the Cooley team licensed the CareTend software because it needed a new more robust solution that would manage its home infusion services. The team also wanted to be completely paperless while managing inventory, speeding workflow, and easily reporting data.

“Cooley Medical has been a loyal customer for many years, and we truly value that the company has chosen Mediware as its software vendor since 1991,” says Paul O’Toole, vice president and general manager of the Home Care Solutions division of Mediware. “We are thrilled to see how CareTend, the only complete solution available in the market today, will streamline operations in the coming months,” adds O’Toole.
