JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (PRWEB) January 16, 2020
Forcura, a leading healthcare technology company that empowers better patient care, announces that Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY), one of the nation’s largest providers of home-based care, has chosen Forcura as a documentation workflow partner. VNSNY will benefit from streamlined and integrated referrals management and robust orders tracking. These efficiencies translate to safer care transitions for patients, and increased revenues and optimized cash flows for the home care and hospice agency.
The Forcura platform allows post-acute care providers to manage the flow of patient information and documentation for all lines of business through seamless integration with electronic health records (EHRs). Forcura is committed to transitioning the post-acute industry from a document-intensive to data-driven segment of healthcare. Forcura is an integrated partner of VNSNY’s EHR, Homecare Homebase (HCHB.)
Founded in 1893, VNSNY is the largest not-for-profit home- and community-based health care organization in the United States, serving the five boroughs of New York City, and Nassau, Suffolk, and Westchester Counties. VNSNY has over 44,200 patients and health plan members in its care and approximately 13,600 employees.
“The integration of Forcura’s cloud-based software with Homecare Homebase, the electronic health records system we use, will streamline the processing of intake referrals and physician orders and give our staff better visibility into the document-tracking process,” notes Michael Bernstein, VNSNY’s Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer. “This benefits not only our own workforce but also our referring partners and the home care and hospice patients we serve.”
VNSNY will be using the Forcura platform to streamline its referral management and physician orders processes. With Forcura, VNSNY now has control over the referral and orders management processes through a suite of cloud-based tools that centralizes and digitizes documents, streamlines workflows, and enables data-driven decisions.
“VNSNY operates exclusively in the state of New York but is renowned nationwide for its comprehensive, innovative and compassionate services,” says Forcura’s CEO, Craig Mandeville. “We are proud to partner with this outstanding care provider and ensure VNSNY’s patients transition into their services safely and expediently, and help their back office optimize cash flows with an orders tracking process that eliminates friction points from physician signature to billing.”
