Homecare Homebase Expands Reach with EMR Client in Midwest

Dallas-based Homecare Homebase will now be the electronic medical record provider for Hosparus Health, a hospice and palliative care provider that serves more than 8,000 patients and families in Kentucky and Indiana.

HCHB’s cloud-based PointCare system will be used to deliver care to Hosparus patients and families in a compliant and secure way. Hosparus Health has been in the nonprofit hospice and palliative care space since 1978, and provides medical care, grief counseling, pain management and more for those facing serious illnesses. The company has over 700 employees and 700 volunteers.

Last month, HCHB became the EMR solution for Kindred at Home, the country’s largest home health, hospice, and community care provider. HCHB is owned by Hearst Health Network and offers cloud-based tech solutions for home health and hospice agencies and was formed in 1999. Kindred at Home is a 35-year-old healthcare company with skilled nursing, physical, occupational, and speech therapies, social work, disease management education, hospice, palliative care services, and more.

“One of the things we’re extremely excited about with HCHB is the numerous interface opportunities that will allow our systems to seamlessly talk with each other” said Phil Marshall, President and CEO of Hosparus Health via release. “Compliance and quality reporting is critical for us – and we’ll now have better access to real-time reports on a daily basis. We also look forward to much needed dashboards that will allow for timely communication related to operations, maximizing our ability to make informed organizational decisions.”

“From streamlined scheduling, workflow and billing to improved staffing and retention, we’re doing everything possible to offer smart data solutions so agencies can spend less time on paperwork and more time with patients,” said HCHB President Scott Decker via release.
