Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 03, 2014
Homecare Homebase, a leading provider of healthcare software serving the technology needs of the fast growing post-acute care industry including homecare, hospice and private duty, announced today they continue on track to meet the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) ICD-10 compliance deadline of October 1, 2014. This announcement comes on the heels of President Obama signing the “Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014” that prevents the Secretary of Health & Human Services from adopting ICD-10 code sets prior to October 1, 2015.
Homecare Homebase has a long history of implementing HHS and CMS mandated changes well in advance of compliance deadlines. The company implemented the 2013 CMS Medicare reimbursement changes months in advance of its compliance date to ensure its customers were not only prepared, but could also gauge the effects of the reimbursement changes prior to the compliance date.
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.
“The delay is especially frustrating for home health agencies that have worked diligently to meet the HSS deadline,” said Tom Maxwell, Chief Strategy Office for Homecare Homebase. “Homecare Homebase will integrate the new ICD-10 codes by the original deadline, giving our customers the advantage to plan for the impact on their agency.”
