Springfield, Mo. – November 15, 2017 – HEALTHCAREfirst, the leading provider of Web-based home health and hospice software, billing and coding services, and advanced analytics, announces its game changing Hospice CAREpliance Technology. Released earlier this year for home health, CAREpliance comes at a time of pronounced regulatory change and increased scrutiny, promising to strengthen clinical documentation and create charts that uniquely describe each patient’s health journey.

The thoughtfully designed clinical workflow thinks like a clinician following the standard patient care processes to direct the clinician’s focus to the patient by alleviating documentation burdens. When problems are identified in the assessment, the system suggests interventions and goals for each problem, allowing the clinician to customize the plan of care and build a story for that patient, something surveyors are looking more closely for in today’s site audits. Equipped with the most thorough, evidence based clinical expertise and guidance in the market today, the result is comprehensive, quality patient care and consistent clinical documentation that ensures compliance, minimizing the risks of audits, denials, and take backs.

“We have had an overwhelmingly positive response to our CAREpliance Technology for home health,” said Misty Skinner, EVP of Services at HEALTHCAREfirst. “We’ve been receiving a lot of great feedback from our hospice focus group participants as well, so I know we’re on the right track to deliver something special that hospices desperately need.”

Steve Sablan, CIO of HEALTHCAREfirst said, “Our entire team is very excited about what we are bringing to the market. The regulatory environment always stirs up anxiety, but our team is always working ahead to minimize that for our customers and bring solutions that will enable them to integrate change while staying focused on patient care.”

Hospice CAREpliance will be available for firstHOSPICE customers in late November-early December. For more information, request a demo or call 800.841.6095.
