Wethersfield, CN (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
Qualidigm, the national healthcare consulting company in Wethersfield, Conn., will debut its new quality and compliance tool designed to save home health agencies time and money at the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) 2013 Annual Meeting & Exposition in Washington, D.C., Oct. 31–Nov. 3, 2013.
Qualiance™ is a first-of-its-kind web-based tool that audits and analyzes Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoP) compliance. The tool gathers and collates data into one dashboard enabling home health agencies to monitor compliance at all levels—from a single clinician, team, or specific branch. With access to this real time data, Qualiance™ enables home health agencies to instantly pinpoint deficiencies and develop targeted corrective plans of action to improve these areas and ultimately avoid costly penalties.
"Non-compliance with Medicare CoPs poses major financial threats to home health agencies and presently, it’s a daunting and costly task to track and tabulate data to ensure compliance," said Tim Elwell, Qualidigm president and CEO. "Qualiance™ streamlines the entire home health compliance tracking process and arms agencies with actionable data to proactively improve compliance outcomes. It is exciting for Qualidigm to enter the software development market with such an innovative solution," said Elwell. "The NAHC 2013 Annual Meeting & Exposition is the perfect platform for debuting Qualiance™ to such a captive audience."
As an exhibitor at NAHC 2013, Qualidigm will be showcasing various features of Qualiance™ including the dashboard to monitor compliance and the robust reporting functionality. Conference attendees will have an exclusive opportunity to sign up for a free 14-day tool trial to begin monitoring their agency data. The NAHC 2013 Annual Meeting expects to draw more than 5,000 professionals from across the country who serve the needs of the home care and hospice community. The audience represents both the large and small home care and hospice agencies in the United States as well as integrated delivery systems, managed care organizations, long-term care facilities, accounting and consulting firms.
