Research Triangle Park, NC (PRWEB) December 7, 2009
CareAnyware, Inc., the leading provider of web-based software for hospice and home care is pleased to announce that they have completed work on key components for their clinical point-of-care module to handle the new OASIS-C documentation requirements.
CareAnyware’s unique web-based delivery platform enables their clients to be among the first home care organizations in the nation to begin using the new “Grouper” functionality for OASIS-C. This proactive implementation will mitigate the risks naturally associated with such a fundamental change to the home care industry and allows CareAnyware’s clients more time to train their clinical staff and better prepare for this transition.
Accurate OASIS documentation is essential in assuring that Home Health agencies are able to receive the maximum reimbursements through Medicare, while inaccuracies can lead to audits and substantial financial losses.
“CareAnyware has strived to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to the changes in the OASIS assessment and grouper logic; we’re thrilled to have clients already up and running with this important functionality,” says Rich Guerin, CEO of CareAnyware. “Our unique web-based home health software allows us the flexibility to make proactive and rapid functionality changes, which is advantageous to our customers in this ever-changing regulatory environment.”
The new OASIS functionality in CareAnyware’s home care software is backward compatible, which means that clients can use the software for the existing OASIS assessments as well as addressing new OASIS-C documentation as the home care industry transitions to the new requirements. CareAnyware’s clients can rest assured that their organization will be prepared for the changes that lie ahead in the regulatory environment.
“CareAnyware’s web-based software has made it possible for Home Health organizations like ours to quickly adapt to the dynamic health care environment without the worry of having to install new software on our servers and point- of-care devices. “CareAnyware’s intense focus on regulatory compliance will allow us to make the transition to the new OASIS-C assessments on or ahead of schedule,” comments Wendy Cofran, CIO of the Natick VNA in Natick, MA. “In addition, the CareAnyware webinar training sessions planned for early December will provide our clinicians the opportunity to become more comfortable with the documentation changes, creating a positive impact on our organization. Our entire team appreciates the extra effort CareAnyware has extended in order to reduce the risks associated with such a critical change to our industry.”
“CareAnyware is committed to assuring that our clients will be prepared to thrive no matter what regulatory changes take place,” adds Guerin. “Our goal is to give our customers the tools they need to provide the best patient care possible while making their jobs easier. Having the Oasis-C functionality in place ahead of schedule means one less thing that CareAnyware customers will have to worry about.”
