“The public health emergency has increased the demand for care in the home, and with value-based care, star ratings and the client experience being top-of-mind for providers, having access to tools that will keep patients safe in the home will also help their business,” says Axxess Founder and Chief Executive Officer John Olajide.

This partnership includes Axxess joining the HomesRenewed Coalition as the first healthcare technology company involved in their efforts to drive policies and investments to increase the number of individuals who can afford to age in place safely in “age-friendly” homes.
