Research Triangle Park, NC (PRWEB) February 4, 2010
CareAnyware, Inc, the leading provider of web-based hospice and home care automation software announced today that Hospice Care of South Carolina (HCSC) is the most recent hospice organization to choose CareAnyware’s web-based hospice software to manage their operations in 25 locations statewide. Implementation of CareAnyware is a key part of HCSC’s strategy to improve automation at the point-of-care (POC) while gaining greater control of their business through comprehensive scheduling, billing and management reporting.
Hospice Care of South Carolina needed a powerful and flexible software solution to manage their statewide operations. After researching and vetting the various leading hospice software solutions on the market, they determined that CareAnyware’s web-based system included the right set of tools to help them automate their point-of-care assessments, gain business insight through powerful management reporting, and consolidate their front office management while providing the best palliative care possible to their patients.
“We needed a solution that combined web-based functionality with strong hospice clinical features at the point-of-care. After careful consideration we determined that CareAnyware was the best fit for our growing hospice organization, and their hospice point-of-care capability, which can also be accessed offline, became the most important factor driving our decision,” says David Powell, COO of Hospice Care of South Carolina. “The web-based model is perfect for a geographically dispersed hospice organization like ours; it gives us the ability to manage all 25 of our locations with one centralized system that can be accessed from just about anywhere.”
“We’re very pleased to welcome Hospice Care of South Carolina as our newest hospice client,” says Rich Guerin, CEO of CareAnyware. “HCSC has distinguished itself among hospice organizations in South Carolina by providing compassionate palliative care at the community level across the state and we look forward to a strong partnership. More and more, large hospice and home care organizations are seeing the advantages in adopting a web-based software system; this model allows them to seize control of their business in a centralized system that incorporates the point-of-care, scheduling, billing, and truly powerful reporting along with a growing array of dynamic product features.”
“Being web-based will save us a lot of money over the long term by drastically reducing our IT expenditures,” added Dawn Teachey, CEO of HCSC. “At the end of the day CareAnyware’s strong POC features combined with the ability to work both online and offline will allow us to move forward as an organization while realizing greater efficiencies and a strong return on our investment.”
