I expect our relationship with PatientKeeper will provide us with an additional tool to obtain vital information from the hospitals in a timely, accurate and automated fashion, which will assist in the continuity and coordination of care for our patients.
Waltham, MA (PRWEB) February 13, 2012
PatientKeeper®, Inc., the leading provider of physician health care information systems, today announced that CareMore, a California-based, senior-focused health care delivery system, has purchased PatientKeeper Charge Capture™ software. CareMore will deploy PatientKeeper’s software to physicians at multiple hospitals across its network, which serves more than 64,000 people in California, Arizona and Nevada.
PatientKeeper Charge Capture software provides an automated billing workflow that easily fits a clinician's work style, and can support ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes. The software offers flexible access on PCs with a Web browser and popular handheld devices.
CareMore takes care of very frail and chronically ill patients, where coordination of care is essential, especially in the area of transitioning patients from hospital to home. One of the keys to ensuring that transitions of care are as effective and seamless as possible is for all appropriate data to be collected and in the hands of the post-acute providers at the time of follow-up visits to ensure patient stability and reduce the risk of re-admissions.
CareMore’s purchase of PatientKeeper software was driven not only by the need for a tool for charge and diagnosis capture in the hospital, but also as an interface to CareMore’s hospitals' core information systems, so CareMore providers and care teams have real-time access to patient information to optimally treat frail senior patients. PatientKeeper initially will be utilized by 34 hospitalists covering 24 hospitals.
CareMore Senior Medical Officer Henry Do, M.D. said, “I expect our relationship with PatientKeeper will provide us with an additional tool to obtain vital information from the hospitals in a timely, accurate and automated fashion, which will assist in the continuity and coordination of care for our patients.”
Paul Brient, PatientKeeper’s president and CEO, said, “We are excited to welcome CareMore to the PatientKeeper family and applaud their unique approach to care management for a critical segment of the population.”
