Dallas, Texas — June 12, 2018 — Today, Homecare Homebase, a leader in home health and hospice electronic health record (EHR) solutions, announced a strategic partnership with Forcura, a provider of post-acute document workflow and secure communication tools. This partnership solidifies Forcura as the preferred document workflow solution for Homecare Homebase customers and introduces a new integrated workflow and mobile care coordination solution to the market.
The integrated Homecare Homebase and Forcura offering will allow home health and hospice providers to significantly improve productivity, optimize revenue cycle management and expedite care coordination across remote teams. Through a bi-directional data exchange between solutions, the Forcura document workflow platform and corresponding mobile care coordination app allow Homecare Homebase users to manage referrals and physician orders seamlessly, collaborate between care team members, share messages, images, documents and videos and accurately measure chronic wounds. All of this information is managed in a HIPAA-secure environment and can be added immediately to the patient record in Homecare Homebase.
“We are continually working to optimize our partnerships to drive value for our customers,” said Scott Pattillo, Homecare Homebase Chief Strategy Officer. “Forcura has a solid reputation as the leader in workflow solutions and as a company that cares deeply about the success of its clients. Our shared goals made this next level of partnership a natural next step towards offering complete interoperability to our customer base.”
Forcura has been a document management partner of Homecare Homebase since 2015. This enhanced partnership demonstrates Homecare Homebase’s commitment to working with technology leaders in the home health and hospice segment to deliver solutions that improve productivity and connectivity for customers.
We spoke with Craig Mandeville, Forcura Founder and CEO, who explained that the Forcura communication and coordination system goes well beyond secure texting. "We are committed to being the standard communications platform for home health and hospice providers with the ultimate goal of improving patient care," he told us. "Homecare Homebase shares a common commitment to this segment and an appetite to innovate and move quickly to introduce new solutions to this end. Together we can have a significant impact on the future of post-acute care."
A Homecare Homebase news release announcing the partnership asserts that customers can expect to see an average of over 300% return on investment on the integrated offering. Customers had the opportunity to view and demo the new integrated offering at the Homecare Homebase Users Conference this week in Dallas, Texas.
