Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) May 08, 2013
Aprima Medical Software announced today that its award-winning EHR and Practice Management system will soon interface with the home healthcare market’s leading automation software, Homecare Homebase, a technology partnership expected to eliminate almost all of the duplicative documentation typically associated with home healthcare visits.
Because such visits require documentation for both patient care and administrative purposes, providers often spend hours putting the same information into different systems and on various paper-based forms. The Aprima EHR and Homecare Homebase interface will vastly transform this tedious experience for the better by sharing data between the two solutions, such as medications, problem lists, allergies and vitals.
This integration of data is expected to further speed the collection of information needed back at the home office for billing and administration, while giving providers new capabilities to make more informed decisions right at the point of care – the patient’s home.
This integrated system can go a long way in reducing unnecessary hospital stays because it incorporates the tools providers need to diagnose and treat a patient’s condition. For example, providers will be able to generate or access orders, continuity of care documentation, 485 care plans, and much more from one system, even if no Internet connection is available.
“In Aprima, we’ve found a partner with the right technology capabilities and an extensive record of success,” said Tom Maxwell, chief strategy officer at Homecare Homebase. “The company holds a strong position in the visiting physicians market, and also offers the only certified EHR with technology that allows for full patient chart access and complete documentation even if the provider doesn’t have access to the Internet, very similar to the way in which Homecare Homebase works. The integration between these two like-minded, best-of-breed products will ensure our common customers are able to provide a consistent, high-quality level of care to patients improving not only their outcomes but their satisfaction.”
Aprima refers to this store-and-forward technology as “replication” – a powerful feature that automatically syncs patient records, distributes orders and prescriptions, and performs other tasks as soon as a network is engaged.
“We share Homecare Homebase’s mission to keep it about the patient, not the paperwork, so we are obviously very pleased to be chosen as their interface partner. We believe this initiative is going to radically simplify the home healthcare visit, which for too long has been plagued by repetitive data input and limited access to critical information,” said Aprima CEO Michael Nissenbaum.
The Aprima EHR and Homecare Homebase interface is expected to launch early this summer. For more information, contact Aprima at 888-960-6890, option 7, or info(at)aprima(dot)com.
