Homecare Homebase today announced the availability of a powerful new feature of their Knowledge Link™ Business Analyzer module, part of the Homecare Connections™ suite of products. The new functionality allows Homecare Homebase customers to quickly and accurately identify the effects of the proposed 2013 CMS Medicare reimbursement changes, as well as, the updated MSA Wage Index updates issued last week, well before they actually take affect early next year.

“Timing is critical when changes are proposed that might affect the way our customers choose to run their business,” said April Anthony, CEO at Homecare Homebase. “By tapping into the powerful data that is stored in their Homecare Homebase solution we can create an accurate picture of how the new reimbursement rules will affect their operations, and ultimately their ability to care for patients. Providing strategic business insight in real-time is what sets Homecare Homebase apart from other technology providers and ensures our users are at the forefront of the industry.”

Knowledge Link, using the proposed 2013 CMS changes, allows customers to use actual data from episodes completed during the January – June 2012 time period to compare and model projected revenues based on the proposed 2013 reimbursement changes. Use of this data provides the highest level of accuracy and predictability of how the proposed reimbursement changes will affect their revenue in the coming year.

“Homecare Homebase continues to focus on tools that not only keep customers ahead of coming regulatory changes, but give them powerful insight into their business,” said Tom Maxwell, Chief Strategy Officer at Homecare Homebase. “By giving our users time to identify potential issues or areas for adjustment we are providing the information they need to make better business decisions today, and choose the right strategic direction for the future. It gives them the ability to not only analyze and evaluate their operations but also to plan how to best service their patients.”
