Health closes medical supplies business tomorrow

Looking to grow its home care business platform that handles home medical equipment orders, payment processing and delivery to patients, Tomorrow Health says it will close accounts on its home medical equipment \”to remove barriers and unlock new opportunities\” for its network.


As healthcare continues to embrace home health technologies, such as diagnostic and screening tools, New York-based Tomorrow Heath has been helping its customers navigate the HME buying process since 2020.

Partnering with HME providers such as Apria, AdaptHealth, Home Care Delivered, Lincare, Rotech Healthcare and others, the company says its end-to-end home care ecosystem uses technology-based matching that considers quality, specialization, coverage insurance and geography to match patients to more than 40,000 medical products and services.

“HME providers are a key lever in shifting care to the home, which is often overlooked by taxpayers,” Tomorrow Health CEO and co-founder Vijay Kedar said in Thursday\’s announcement.

The company says that by sending digitally documented orders to suppliers within the platform in accordance with payer requirements, it has reduced supplier operating expenses by up to 24%.

The company also partners with 125 health plans and health systems and says currently 87% of its HME orders contain enough information for immediate fulfillment.

Suppliers can also communicate with payers and suppliers regarding orders on the platform.

\”Tomorrow Health is not only focused on delivering high-quality, innovative technology to providers in need of operational efficiencies, but also connects with providers to understand what works and doesn\’t work for them,\” said Tom Ryan, president and CEO of the American Association for Homecare, an advocacy organization for home care providers and providers, in the statement.

Lowell Price, senior vice president of business development and chief growth officer at Home Care Delivered, added that its partnership with Tomorrow Health enables automation and scaling.

In March, the company also announced a new tool for Medicaid managed care organizations that allows care coordinators to get real-time order status and coordinate with member care teams. On Tomorrow Health\’s digital platform, MCOs can get durable medical equipment information such as reference supplier details, product category estimated delivery date, confirmed delivery date and more that they need for reporting purposes the company said.


Home health technology tools such as blood pressure cuffs, scales, thermometers, and other screening tools that can be used to measure biometrics are proving their value to health care and should be adopted because they can alert patients and their physicians of potential health problems, said Travis Rush, CEO of Reperio, a provider of home biometric screening technologies.

\”Home health technologies can help organizations enable their workers to engage in preventive care, which can help them avoid higher costs of care in the future,\” he said.Health informatics newsin February.


“Tomorrow Health\’s technology and unique position with payers enable end-to-end change, supporting everything from prescribing to reimbursement, providing providers with valuable insights that can drive business growth and ensure positive experiences for every single stakeholder” , Kidar said in the statement.
