Share Article

Interface provides automatic transfer of demographic data from HEALTHCAREfirst’s EHR systems, to the Medline software system.

We have a focus on strategically growing our interfaces to make life easier for our customers. We know our customers are going to be really excited about this one.

HEALTHCAREfirst, the leading provider of Web-based home health and hospice software, billing and coding services, and advanced analytics, announced a partnership with Medline, the nation’s largest privately held manufacturer and distributor of medical supplies for health care providers and end users with a mission of improving patient care and enhancing quality of life.

This interface provides automatic transfer of demographic data from firstHOSPICE and firstHOMECARE, HEALTHCAREfirst’s comprehensive EHR systems, to the Medline software system. This saves valuable time for agency staff by eliminating duplicate data entry, and it expedites the order process of supplies to better serve patients in need.

“We are really excited to be working with Medline,” said J. Kevin Porter, CEO of HEALTHCAREfirst. “We surveyed our customers earlier this year and found that Medline was one of the most widely used vendors among survey respondents. We have a focus on strategically growing our interfaces to make life easier for our customers. We know our customers are going to be really excited about this one.”

Chris Nave, SVP of Home Care and Hospice Sales at Medline said, “Partnering with software vendors like HEALTHCAREfirst allows us to better serve our customers because they can more quickly get supplies to their patients. In the end, it’s all about serving the patient and improving their outcomes. We know that HEALTHCAREfirst is equally committed to this goal, so we are thrilled to be partnering with them.”

The interface is expected to be available for customers later this month. For more information, agencies can contact either company.
