Kara Health Selected by Cedars-Sinai for Outpatient Hospice Initiative (OHI)


Kara Health was recently selected from a pool of over 500 hospice providers to work with Cedars-Sinai as a “close collaborator” on their Outpatient Hospice Initiative (OHI). 

Kara Health was the only company among the 7 selected to have no prior collaborative history with Cedars-Sinai. The distinctive decision speaks volumes about Kara Health’s positive track record with hospital systems and communities, as well as Cedars-Sinai’s interest in innovative patient care.

Kara Health partners with health systems to maximize the clinical and fiscal impact of homecare services that improve patient outcomes, satisfaction, and loyalty. Through joint ventures or management agreements, Kara Health provides turn-key homecare service solutions for health systems, delivering market-leading returns.

Palliative and hospice care is no longer limited to inpatient populations. Kara Health’s proprietary technology and expert care teams ensure successful palliative outpatient experiences. Tech-enabled end-of-life homecare not only meets the wishes of patients and their families, but minimizes stress on health system and provider resources. 

The collaboration with Cedars-Sinai Medical Center means Kara Health now joins a network that serves more than 1 million people each year in over 40 locations, with more than 4,500 physicians and 1,500 research projects in motion.

The nonprofit academic healthcare organization seeks to set new standards for quality and innovation in care, a mission that parallels Kara Health’s interest in redefining the future of homecare. 

There are currently over 2500 hospice agencies in Los Angeles County, of which 500 applied to the Cedars-Sinai OHI. 30 companies were shortlisted in the process, and only 7 selected.

Kara Health is a Los Angeles-based tech-enabled healthcare services provider that specializes in population health management via asset-lite services like homecare, telehealth, remote monitoring, and other technology. For more information, visit kara.health
