Clearwater, FL (April 4, 2017) – KanTime Healthcare Software has announced its integration with OperaCare to make the Albuquerque-based company's OASIS claims, pre-submission claims, and proactive OASIS analytics software and services available to users of KanTime's EMR system for home health and home care providers.
Developed by a former CMS/State OASIS coordinator, OperaCare is a unique offering that provides real-time quality assurance, data driven census management and a standardized OASIS process. Written from the perspective of the regulator, OperaCare remediates ZPIC surveys and helps prevent the likelihood of ADR and ZPIC reviews. The data derived enable the provider to identify the likelihood of hospital re-admissions, and allow for acuity-based staffing and outcome-based marketing. The software is optimized for OASIS-C2, Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (HHVBP), and Pre-Claim Reviews.
"We are very excited to work with KanTime," said Michael McGowan, President and Founder of OperaCare, LLC. "The ability to submit your OASIS with the click of a button into a data analysis system, and immediately have your report returned to you, makes the lives of home health agencies that much easier. After all my years in regulatory consulting, I identified a gap between what CMS wanted and what was being presented by HHAs. OperaCare closes that gap. Plus, to help with the ongoing home health nursing shortage, we have also been able to increase productivity while sending nurses home at night with no more OASIS documentation to do. We give nurses their lives back. Ultimately this is the biggest return on investment. Increasing margins and submitting claims hourly are natural byproducts of the process."
Integration into the KanTime system allows bi-directional communication between KanTime and the OperaCare platform. Essentially, OASIS data from KanTime is sent to OperaCare to be reviewed. Within a few seconds, a report is sent back with recommended changes to the OASIS from the point of view of a ZPIC investigator, based on Mr. McGowan's depth of experience. A RAP ready report is also completed within 2-3 hours of the visit. This allows for the submission of OASIS assessments that do not raise red flags.
"We are very excited about the functionality found in OperaCare," said Kristen Duell, VP of Business Development & Marketing at KanTime. We know it will proactively help our home health agency customers submit compliant data to CMS, which is what they need to to in order to survive and thrive in today’s increasingly regulated post-acute care market."
