Westmont, IL (PRWEB) May 03, 2013
Procura announced today that their recently launched Hospice Solution, Procura for Hospice, will be installed at Upper Peninsula Home Health, Hospice and Private Duty. Established in 1973 and based in Marquette, Michigan, Upper Peninsula was the first provider of Hospice Philosophical Care in the state, and one of the original three to operate in the United States. The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is sometimes called the "Cradle of the Hospice Movement" in the USA because of the establishment of more Hospice Programs per capita than anywhere else in the country.
Procura for Hospice is a comprehensive IT system designed to support the delivery of care for hospice patients and their families from initial referral and intake through the bereavement process. Developed to manage multiple levels of care in diverse settings, the solution helps improve the services delivered while recognizing the workflows of the hospice nurse and the interdisciplinary care team.
"We have been using Procura's Home Health Solution for many years, and have had great success with the automation processes that we have adapted, most recently for our Hospice," said Cindy Nyquist, President and Founder of Upper Peninsula Home Health, Hospice and Private Duty. "When Procura presented us with the opportunity to implement their new Hospice functionality, we jumped on it. We were very excited because Procura has already demonstrated to us that the software could be adapted towards our unique needs, and that as a company they are receptive to our input regarding improvement."
"Upper Peninsula over the years has been a key partner in developing our product. When we first partnered with VNA First /IHCS (now EVENTIUM) and introduced their clinical pathways, Cindy Nyquist was not only one of our early adopters, but also contributed to making the product even better for other providers," continued Warren Brown, President of the Procura Group of Companies. "Having Upper Peninsula Home Health, Hospice and Private Duty implementing and using Procura for Hospice is not only beneficial for us as we measure the effectiveness of the tool, but will be beneficial for our future Hospice clients as they have shown before, they ultimately intend to make the solution better for everyone."
Procura and Upper Peninsula Home Health, Hospice and Private Duty have identified key performance indicators in measuring how the Hospice Solution will be used. The results of this study will be released later this year and will be made available to the public via the Procura website.
