HCHB is an EMR for home-based care organizations. Medalogix is a provider of Medalogix care solution, which provides objective, evidence-based visit recommendations that supplement clinical team knowledge when making care planning decisions.
Since 2015, they have been combining their expertise to provide home health and hospice agencies with the digital tools and data needed to make better care decisions.
The newest integration brings real-time data insights from Medalogix directly into HCHB’s PointCare application during the start of a care visit, simplifying and expediting plan of care creation. Clinician completion of a physical assessment triggers the interaction between the platforms, immediately presenting the clinician with utilization recommendations based on the patient’s documented clinical status.
In addition to providing clinicians with objective, data-driven field support in their decision-making process, this increased efficiency is expected to accelerate the OASIS scrubbing and locking process, a media release from Homecare Homebase explains.
“The partnership with Medalogix helps agencies use patient-specific data captured in HCHB to make more informed care decisions for each patient. The bi-directional integration will improve the experiences of both patients and agency care providers by facilitating the real-time visit utilization guidance that field personnel need, when and where they require it the most.”
— Scott Pattillo, chief strategy officer for Homecare Homebase
Medalogix Care incorporates and considers unique patient characteristics and historical clinical outcomes throughout the care-planning process to prioritize the right level of care and optimize clinical outcomes rather than focusing on revenue considerations. For some patients, fewer visits will be recommended; for other patients, more visits may be recommended. In all scenarios the utilization recommendations are made with the singular focus of providing the right level of care to optimize clinical outcomes.
“We believe data science and machine learning should be used to support all clinical decisions. Implementing Medalogix Care into HCHB’s PointCare will empower clinicians with individualized patient intelligence at the bedside. The partnership demonstrates how two best-in-class companies can collaborate to change healthcare.”
— Elliott Wood, president and CEO at Medalogix
