Mediware’s CareTend™ Software Goes Live

Health Options Infusion Pharmacy Is First to Go Live with New Software

LENEXA, KS, March 10, 2015 – Mediware Information Systems, Inc. announces that, Health Options is the first Mediware customer to go live on its newest and most technologically advanced software platform, CareTend. Health Options is a home infusion provider that has been an industry leader for more than twenty years.

Health Options is looking forward to leveraging the CareTend solution to improve their productivity. Michael Hayes, VP of Operations at Health Options said, “The new CareTend platform has a very efficient user interface that will save us valuable time going forward.”  Hayes continued, “We also chose the hosted option, which allows us to focus on improving our business rather than worrying about ongoing technology changes.”

Health Options was able to bring forward all of the relevant data from their old CPR+ system into the CareTend software.  Having the data available in the CareTend software made the transition onto the new platform virtually seamless. “Mediware helped us bring our old data into the CareTend software. As a result, our staff didn’t have to keep looking up information in our old system,” stated Hayes. “We are just excited to be a part of the future. We feel like CareTend will help us take our home infusion business to the next level.”

I am excited to see Health Options take this step on schedule and within weeks of the general availability of the software,” said Paul O’Toole, Vice President and General Manager of the Home Care Solutions division of Mediware. “I am looking forward to seeing how the enhanced functionality will provide more flexibility in their daily operations, as well as improve their ROI,” added O’Toole.
