The laptop solution allows agencies to give the field staff more options, ensuring that they are comfortable with the tools they are using every day and enabling them to complete their documentation in the home. All of this adds up to more satisfied caregivers who are able to focus their attention on what matters most, the patients.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 29, 2009
Today, Homecare Homebase, L.P. announced the addition of laptop and tablet computers to the list of approved point-of-care devices for use with the company's home health and hospice agency automation solution. The addition makes Homecare Homebase the only solution provider to offer a complete mix of wireless handheld, laptop, tablet and netbook computers for use at the point-of-care.
"With the addition of laptops, Homecare Homebase offers home health and hospice agencies ultimate flexibility when rolling out their agency automation solution," said April Anthony, CEO of Homecare Homebase. "The expanded device mix ensures more options for staff, while still providing real-time data transfer back to the agency and the patient's entire circle of care. Agency management can better meet their business, staffing and financial goals with a more nimble solution."
Historically, wireless data transfer rates for laptop computers have been slow, however, using proprietary compression technology Homecare Homebase has achieved data transfer rates equivalent to those of the wireless handhelds. The Homecare Homebase standard is now as little as two minutes from start of sync to completion. And, with the expansion of air-card products available at wireless carriers, agencies have as many options for their laptops and tablets as they do in choosing plans for handheld devices.
Offering the robust Homecare Homebase solution on a laptop computer offers agencies and their field staff the same intuitive, comprehensive automation solution, with added flexibility. Agencies also enjoy the benefit of the same user interface across all hardware types, cutting the need for additional or new training. Plus, with the emergence of smaller, lighter and more affordable netbook computers, agencies can enjoy faster ROIs and lower total cost of ownership, similar to that seen with handheld devices. The technical requirements for laptops, tablets and netbooks are also minimal, simply requiring a Windows operating system and a minimum of 1 gigabyte of RAM.
"Homecare Homebase is in the unique position of being a solution provider that came directly from the agency environment, and because of this intimate understanding we saw the need to offer agencies even more choices when rolling out agency automation to their field staff," said Tom Maxwell, COO of Homecare Homebase. "The laptop solution allows agencies to give the field staff more options, ensuring that they are comfortable with the tools they are using every day and enabling them to complete their documentation in the home. All of this adds up to more satisfied caregivers who are able to focus their attention on what matters most, the patients."
