CaregiverUSA has applied an innovative approach to home health care through the use of an online scheduling system that is backed by a CMS-approved care hub in Ohio.  CaregiverUSA’s model supports affordable care because of the CMS certification, thereby making it different from current pay-out-of-pocket models. 

The CMS certification is in addition to CaregiverUSA already being HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) compliant which provides data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information.

CaregiverUSA aims to transform the way that care is delivered today by motivating, empowering and mobilizing people and communities to care about people around them.  With over 400 signups, the 24×7 online platform connects seniors with trusted caregivers anytime, anywhere. CaregiverUSA’s caregivers have extensive background checks completed successfully and documented and in addition, CaregiverUSA is licensed and insured. 

The online platform provides:

  • Registered nurses, therapists, nurse aides and home health aides who can work on their own times and on their own terms
  • Appointment scheduling so that CaregiverUSA’s caregivers go to its clients’ homes at their preferred and convenient times
  • The convenience so that CaregiverUSA clients and their loved ones can plan and schedule service times by telephone or using the online tool on the website

Said Jinji Yue, Chief Executive Officer of CaregiverUSA, “We are very pleased and excited by receiving the CMS accreditation.  CaregiverUSA’s model supports affordable care through the CMS certification.  Increased life expectancy is giving rise to increasing incidence of chronic diseases.  The potential for home care services in the US is growing.  Some 90 percent of 60 or older people would prefer to stay in their home over living in an institution1. Medicare and Medicaid continue to expand coverage for the elderly and low-income people. Our online 24×7 book-a-care platform connects people with trusted caregivers anytime, anywhere.”
