HEALTHCAREfirst Releases New Enhancements to Home Health & Hospice Software

Payroll integration, custom document creator and addition of Briggs forms help organizations to streamline operations and improve productivity

Ozark, Mo. – November 17, 2014 – HEALTHCAREfirst, the pioneer in cloud-based software and services for home health and hospice care, today announced a number of key enhancements to its Enterprise Edition software, designed to increase ease of use and efficiency.

Enhancement highlights include:

Payroll Integration

Enterprise Edition’s new payroll functionality allows customers to easily obtain and export payroll amounts, based on employee and service pay rates, using the new Payroll Module. With this feature, they will now be able to compile and use payroll data with their current payroll software. Customers will also have the flexibility to set up and manage their payroll each pay cycle at the touch of a button using features such as holiday, shift and weekend differentials. In addition, employees can also be tracked between offices and between salaried and non-salaried staff.

Custom Document Creator

HEALTHCAREfirst has updated its custom document creator tool, allowing users to create custom clinical forms and documentation. New enhancements include a more user-friendly layout and much greater flexibility in creating custom agency documents.

Briggs Healthcare Clinical Forms

HEALTHCAREfirst has partnered with Briggs Healthcare to offer customers integrated, industry-standard clinical forms that will enhance ease of use and increase regulatory compliance. Customers will have the option of using the software’s standard clinical forms or the Briggs clinical forms.

“The enhancements we’ve made to our Enterprise Edition software address the need of home health and hospice agencies to focus their attention on providing excellent patient care and less on paperwork,” said Stan Bell, Senior Vice President of Products for HEALTHCAREfirst. “We are excited to offer these and future enhancements to help them continue to do so.”
