Joe’s Story is the Xverity Story

Xverity has been a personal journey for co-founder and CEO. Joe Cellucci, and most of the members of the Xverity team who are or have been caregivers for a family member or friend. Joe’s story, however, is more compelling. As a cancer survivor, he has experience with virtually all aspects of the health care system impelled him to step back and say, “There has got to be a better way.”  A successful technology entrepreneur, Joe saw the need for improvement as an opportunity and decided to shoot for the moon.  Xverity was launched.

What we do

Xverity is a technology enabled services company that takes innovation to a higher level by combining healthcare IT, advocacy and essential services  allowing health care providers to deliver a hospitality experience to patients that are at home during periods of greatest need following discharge, and beyond as they move into later stages of life.  Our Patient@Home relationship management solution allows providers to better profile, service and engage with their @Home patients and their caregivers, resulting in improved lifestyles and outcomes, all at a reduced cost.  We give @Home patients and their caregivers peace of mind through better care and reduced risk of ER visits and hospital readamissions. Others claim to do vertical pieces of the process. Xverity is the only end-to-end @Home ecosystem that improves care and manages costs.

Bottom Line:

We ensure @Home patients and their caregivers peace of mind, better care and reduced risk of ER visits and hospital readmissions.  And nobody does it better. 

Connecting Patient Relationships

Why We’re Needed

The ``5,000 Hours Problem``

“Physicians are rarely trained to help patients change their behaviors, but a tech-based system could help solve the ‘5,000 hours problem’ that plagues the industry – the time that patients spend on their own, away from the watchful eye of the provider,” Dr. Kevin Volpp, director for the Center for Health Incentives a Behavioral Economic and vice chairman for health policy at the University of Pennsylvania, opined in a recent blog. Other authorities agree that the continuum of care is often disrupted when a patient leaves a hospital or other protected setting.

Our Moonshot Solution

Growing Need

Data show that the need for @Home patient care is growing rapidly as the population ages and people opt to age in place rather than be institutionalized.

The statistics add up to a scalable opportunity to combine innovative healthcare IT with a patient-centric, advocacy-managed services network that can be configured and automated to deliver essential services for patient safety, security and convenience and better health.

The greatest need for Xverity’s Moonshot solution is among PACE Programs, ACOs, Home Health companies, Health Systems and payors. Depending upon need and circumstances, we can match our solution suites to address specific issues – such as assessment and risk stratification, patient engagement using mobile devices (like the Amazon Echo) and other communication tools. Service delivery, monitoring and field care personnel management are available through our Advocacy Services Center.

We exist to help our customers  increase patient satisfaction (VOX study estimates $1,000 savings per patient), create new revenue sources for our customers (new CMS billing codes and bundled service models), improve resource utilization (home health companies visit capacity and costs average  $75 – $130 per visit) and avoid readmissions  ($10,000 – $14,000 per avoidance CMS).
