Health Care Software, Inc. (HCS), a market leader and developer of healthcare information systems, has signed contracts with several individual and multi-facility long-term acute care (LTCH) providers for its CARE Data Set solution.

HCS’s CARE solution is a complete end-to-end solution enabling LTCH facilities to collect, report, submit, and comply with the LTCH CARE Data Set mandate from CMS under the Long-Term Care Hospital Quality Reporting Program that began October 1, 2012.

Each provider selected HCS after conducting a thorough due diligence that included multiple vendor evaluations, system demonstrations, and references. Today, nearly 100 LTCH facilities are running the HCS CARE solution. Recent contracts of multi-facility providers include:

  •     Acadiana Management Group, LLC, Lafayette, LA
  •     Encore Healthcare, LLC, Columbia, MD
  •     LHC Group, Inc., Lafayette, LA
  •     LifeCare Hospitals, Plano, TX
  •     AcuityHealthcare, LP, Charlotte, NC

“Our experience in post-acute care reporting is unsurpassed, and we have successfully leveraged that experience in developing our CARE solution to meet the needs of the CMS initiative and our clients,” explains Tom Fahey, President of HCS. “Our CARE solution has been well received by the LTCH provider community as evidenced by the large number of facilities we support. We look forward to assisting our clients in going beyond compliance reporting to the next step of complete EMR utilization.”

“The functionality provided by HCS’s CARE solution will not only enable us to comply with CMS regulations, but will also enhance our ability to report on the data we are capturing,” states Mike Turnage, Director of Nursing Operations-Hospitals for Encore Healthcare. “Our goal is to make capturing LTCH CARE Data Set elements part of the clinician workflow. By eliminating redundant effort and ensuring accuracy, HCS through its EMR, can help us achieve this goal. This also further solidifies our perspective that we made the right choice by selecting HCS to be our vendor for LTCH CARE Data Set compliance.”
