Delta Care Rx, a leading pharmaceutical innovator in end of life care, announces an exciting interface with HEALTHCAREfirst, a leading provider of web-based home health and hospice software, billing and coding services, Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems, or CAHPS, Surveys and advanced analytics.
The partnership enables Delta Care Rx Hospice pharmacy solutions to interface effortlessly with the HEALTHCAREfirst comprehensive electronic health records, or EHR, systems, including firstHOSPICE and firstHOMECARE.
“Delta Care Rx enjoys a growing segment of users within our customer base,” says J. Kevin Porter, CEO of HEALTHCAREfirst, citing a recent, internal survey of clients. “This partnership strategically provides the interface those hospice clients need to create greater ease in workflow.”
Thanks to the interface, slated for early April, clinicians will be able to enhance workflow efficiency from a single point of demographic data entry in the EHR, which will then flow electronically to Delta Care Rx.
For example, when a nurse inputs patient information into the HEALTHCAREfirst EHR, it appears in Delta Care Rx’s e-tools automatically. The automatic transfer of vital information saves valuable time, reduces error, and improves patient care by reducing the effort required to ensure patients receive medications needed for quality outcomes.
In the future, a pharmaceutical interface will make it possible to order medications directly from the EHR. Users will also have the option of utilizing Delta Care Rx’s user-friendly durable medical equipment (DME) management software and provider network. Again, as patient demographic information proves readily available in the e-tools software suite, there’s no task repetition. Delta Care Rx pharmacy and DME orders can be placed from any digital device, including smart phones. There is no additional cost to HEALTHCAREfirst users who choose to add this interface.
“Managing pharmacy, alongside DME inside the same platform, definitely saves time and capital,” says Drew Mihalyo, president and COO at Delta Care Rx. “This interface saves duplication of labor across the board for clients who already use a very powerful product via HEALTHCAREfirst.”
Delta Care Rx partners with EHR vendors, like HEALTHCAREfirst, within the hospice industry to provide EHR clients with easy to use, innovative interfaces to enhance clinical efficiency and reduce operating costs.
