Multiple benefits for Medical Providers.
The trend of reimbursement reduction is real; thus, agencies and health care providers are being asked to improve the value and quality of services provided with less people to provide those services. VoCare helps agencies and health care providers adapt to payment model shifts while increasing efficiency by:
- Streamlining clinical workflows, allowing clinicians to treat patients faster and achieve better outcomes.
- Understanding where time is being spent to see how it can be saved.
Unfortunately, as fraud cases continually surface, homecare agencies are forced to prevent and provide proof against fraudulent activity by:
- Verifying clinical decisions
- Enforcing standards of care
- Validation of care provided
The Vitals360® provides an excellent audit trail for Medicare, which includes GPS and time stamping.
For most agencies, the danger lies in innocent fraud, which is typically due to common mistakes. The Vitals360® can mitigate this risk by:
- Capturing the time that clinicians or aides are with the patient
- Verifying that services were provided
- Enforcing orders for scheduling
Reporting Measurable Outcomes
Payers of all types are not only changing their requirements for reimbursement, they are using outcomes to determine with whom they will do business. To continue winning business, the Vitals360® allows providers to utilize “real-time” data to demonstrate a better quality of care and cost effective patient outcomes which can be used to negotiate payer contracts, attract more referrals and help in meeting clinical quality measures associated with the CMS Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) & Alternative Payment Models (APMs).
Keeping Clinicians Mobile and Productive
Keeping clinicians productive means home health agencies must empower them to move freely, removing any impediments that limit such movement. Utilizing the Vitals360® will not only increase productivity, it will help tremendously in retaining and satisfying clinicians.
Helping Clinicians become More Efficient Utilizing an Easy to Use Interface
Utilizing the Vitals360® will improve the clinician’s ability to care for patients. It is easy to use by both clinicians and patients which in turn leads to consistent use and best outcomes.
The Vitals360® has a simple-to-use interface for a point-of-care and/or remote patient monitoring solution that will empower clinicians and patients alike to intuitively navigate the system.
The Vitals360® allows clinicians to:
- Treat more effectively with a real-time understanding of patient progress
- Plan their day and adjust schedules on the go
- Save time by eliminating unnecessary trips to the office
- Avoid lost documentation
- Get work done easier and faster
- Focus on caring for patients instead of navigating software
Ensuring Quality and Patient Safety
VoCare® recognizes that keeping the focus on patient safety is a critical responsibility for home health agencies. As post-acute patients are displaying increasing co-morbidities, agencies must implement a solution that allows them to span the continuum, understand history at-a-glance and focus on patients.
Span the Continuum
The Vitals360® is technology that spans the continuum of care which allows clinicians to gain a thorough understanding of the patient by following their journey, including reviewing documentation, through various care settings. This ensures that the patient will achieve better outcomes because nothing is being missed upon transfer.
Understand History At-a-Glance
By utilizing the Vitals360® across care settings, the care team has the ability to quickly understand what’s going on with a patient from a holistic standpoint, not just the time they started with homecare services. This historical knowledge allows clinicians to tailor the care plan to the patient’s exact needs.
Focus on Patients Gives both Clinicians and Patients Peace of Mind
At the end of the day, clinicians choose the healthcare field because they want to help patients. A streamlined solution gives clinicians peace of mind because they know that the care team had visibility into the entire patient record and treated them accordingly.
Post-acute care clinicians that use a streamlined solution will give patients the comfort of knowing their physicians, nurses and therapists understand their case. Plus, patients that must return to previous settings due to complications will benefit from simple, easy transition
The Patient Record
Traditionally, healthcare Clinicians have kept patient records per setting. As post- acute care is changing and Clinicians are diversifying to offer services in multiple settings, there is a need for the patient record to be patient-centric instead of setting-centric, allowing Clinicians, patients and even their families to have a complete picture of the case regardless of care setting. The Vitals360® answers this need.
