Five Star Home Health Care Joins HCHB for Streamlined Scheduling, Workflow and Compliance
(Dallas, TX) – Homecare Homebase (HCHB) the nation’s leading mobile software provider for home health and hospice announced that Five Star Home Health Care has joined its growing roster of agency clients. This Northern Virginia-based home health provider offers “whole-person care” with fully integrated nursing, therapy and personal care services – all in the comfort of home.
With major regulatory changes fast approaching, Five Star Home Health Care was looking to improve scheduling, streamline workflow and make compliance easier. Starting January 2020, Medicare’s Patient Driven Groupings Models (PDGM) will impact nearly every aspect of home health care – including billing and reimbursement. Those who can’t provide “defensible documentation” and proven results will have a tough road ahead of them.
William Harvey, VP of Skilled Care and Administrator for Five Star Home Health Care said his company looked closely at three other software solutions before choosing HCHB. “After seeing the software demo it was clear that HCHB is right at the forefront of compliance. And for us, that was one of the biggest drivers in our decision.”
Another major attraction for Harvey was the HCHB Analytics tool, which allows fast, easy insight and metrics on staff utilization, clinical outcomes, sales, referral source tracking and conversion rates. “Right now, collecting and compiling data for our weekly review takes one person an entire day. With HCHB, we’ll have it all at the touch of a few buttons.”
HCHB President Scott Decker noted that with complex data now driving more and more clinical and business decisions, the tech company has been adding new services to “do more of the hard work” for the agencies they serve. “The continued, rapid growth of in-home care means agencies are demanding sophisticated clinical reporting tools that are easier to use to create documentation and transmit data, as well as more robust analytics and reporting. It’s an exciting time to be part of the evolution of home-based care.”
