CareAnyware Introduces Cutting-Edge Hospice Capabilities at NHPCO Conference

Enhanced In-Patient, Clinical and Administrative Features Create the First Web-Based EMR System to Offer Full Hospice Functionality in One Easy-to-Use Platform

ATLANTA – April 24, 2013 – CareAnyware, a Brightree Company and leading provider of web-based clinical, billing, and business management software solutions for home health and hospice agencies, introduces its Spring 2013 Release for the hospice industry at the NHPCO Management and Leadership Conference, booth 203, this week.

CareAnyware’s innovations for hospice agencies include new in-patient features such as encounter entry, patient vitals capture, and ESAS symptom assessment scores that create a comprehensive solution on a single platform for hospice agencies that offer both in-patient units and home-based services. In addition, the CareAnyware platform supplements its robust hospice workflow and reporting engine with powerful benchmarking and KPI tracking available through an interface to SHPSolutions’ Hospice product.

“CareAnyware has been great for driving efficiency and helping our clinicians in our home-based business. The clinical content, best practices and QAPI questions are very easy to use,” said Christie Dove, EMR trainer at Hospice of the Upstate. “Now, with the new in-patient features, we can truly serve all our patients with one system, improving our efficiency and continuity of care.”

Dave Cormack, president and CEO of Brightree, said, “Hospice organizations are challenged with maintaining the highest levels of care while controlling costs and dealing with reimbursement challenges, and our web-based technology plays a major role in balancing these needs. We are continuing to invest heavily in both clinical and administrative capabilities to ensure our customers’ success. Organizations that have been limited by legacy software systems can benefit from our robust, modern web-based platform, which delivers new levels of ease of use and efficiency.”

CareAnyware’s new features complement its existing hospice functionality, providing hospices the first web-based system that offers full, end-to-end functionality for both in-home and facility-based patients.

At NHPCO, CareAnyware will demonstrate new and existing capabilities, including:

Enhanced in-patient functionality, such as efficient and accurate documenting of patient encounters, capturing vitals, ESAS assessments and best-in-class MAR capabilities, allows clinicians to document directly against the care plan and reduces time spent on documenting encounters by at least 50%.

New benchmarking, dashboards, and reports enable business owners and directors of nursing to easily access clinical and operational performance metrics and identify areas for improvement.

Pain assessments and QAPI reporting capabilities allow organizations to more effectively manage patient care and facilitate easier compliance with all CMS standards.

Integrated IDT functionality and HIPAA-compliant tools for iPhones and Androids improve interdisciplinary communications and cut administrative time by as much as 80% per week.

Core hospice functionality, including hospice specific clinical content for all disciplines, hospice specific workflow engines, integrated LCD tracking and billing, and more.
