Wilpage Inc. Purchases CareTend® Home Medical Equipment Software

Loyal Mediware customer of 20 years licenses CareTend software

Lenexa, KS, September 20, 2016- Mediware Information Systems, Inc., a provider of comprehensive post-acute healthcare software, announces that Wilpage Inc. has agreed to license CareTend software for its home medical equipment business.

For more than thirty years, Wilpage Inc. has provided top quality medical equipment and services to patients and facilities in the New York metro area. Wilpage Inc. first licensed Mediware’s CPR+ software, for its HME and DME service lines, 20 years ago. As the business continued to grow, Wilpage leaders realized the need to switch to cloud-based hosting so that they could spend less time managing technology and more time serving their patients.

“When looking at CareTend’s hosted model, we realized that switching from our current on-premise deployment would eliminate costly hardware maintenance and truly save hours each week in traditional manual data backups and updates,” says Cy Abruzzo, vice president and CFO of Wilpage Inc. “We look forward to using CareTend’s cloud technology so that we can improve our data security and have peace of mind knowing that our software will be automatically updated with the latest enhancements,” adds Abruzzo.

“Wilpage Inc. has been a loyal customer since 1996, and we truly appreciate that the company has chosen Mediware as its software vendor over the years,“ says Paul O’Toole, vice president and general manager of the Home Care Solutions division of Mediware. “We are thrilled to see how CareTend’s secure hosted deployment will reduce Wilpage’s overall IT costs and streamline technology so the team can have more time to run the business. We are also pleased that it allows our HME customer’s full control of their valuable data so that they can manage their business on their timetable,” adds O’Toole.
