Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) October 23, 2012
Homecare Homebase has identified the first 10 home-health branches that will integrate its agency automation solution with the new Curaspan Health Group Synchronized Patient Management™ solution. The Encompass Home Health branches in Denver, Colorado and Austin and Fort Worth, Texas will go live with the Curaspan ConnectorTM in early November 2012.
Curaspan is the industry leader in building secure, electronic patient-transition networks that help hospitals, post-acute providers and payers optimize outcomes as patients move between levels of care. The Curaspan Connector creates a seamless, real-time exchange of patient discharge and referral data directly into the Homecare Homebase solution. Users can process referrals from multiple discharge sources more efficiently and effectively than ever before by integrating this process with the Homecare Homebase workflow, saving time and steps when moving patients from referral sources onto their service.
“We’ve been overwhelmed with the response to our new interface that gives Homecare Homebase users such streamlined access” says Curaspan Vice President of Business Development Kevin Cook. “It adds to their efficiency by eliminating the need to rekey clinical data, insurance information and patient demographics from referring hospitals.”
More than 4,400 providers in 41 states rely on Curaspan to streamline the hospital discharge process by dramatically cutting staff time spent on the phone or faxing; by securely transmitting PHI; and by enabling more timely and targeted patient placements. With the Curaspan integration, Homecare Homebase users are able to respond more promptly to discharging facilities about patient transfers and begin transitions to the home health setting sooner, resulting in better clinical outcomes.
For over 10 years, Homecare Homebase has been dedicated to providing homecare and hospice agencies with a best-of-breed healthcare information system that is fast, flexible and customizable to their unique operational requirements. Developed by industry veterans, Homecare Homebase offers a comprehensive, integrated, cloud-based software solution that continues to stay ahead of the curve, as well as the competition, allowing customers to not only manage their business more effectively, but ultimately provide their patients with the best possible outcomes.
“Partnering with Curaspan has proven very successful,” said Tom Maxwell, Chief Strategy Officer for Homecare Homebase. “They lead the industry in electronically connecting homecare agencies with hospitals and other participants in the continuum of care and were a natural fit for our solution. The integration enables our users to easily and accurately make care transitions from hospital to post-acute settings and enhances their ability to provide an accurate and complete medical record for each patient. The focus on this type of streamlined communication and data transfer between care providers is just one of the many ways home health agencies will continue to prove their value as part of the larger healthcare community.”
