OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Oct. 13, 2023 —  Netsmart and McBee will reveal the latest solution and service innovations of the CareFabric® platform that are transforming care delivery for home care and hospice agencies at the National Association for Home Care and Hospice (NAHC) Conference and Expo on Oct. 15-17 in Washington D.C.

The industry leaders will showcase innovative solutions, equipping post-acute care providers with tools to navigate the emerging landscape of value-based care. Value-based care models have emerged as essential frameworks for healthcare providers, emphasizing patient outcomes and quality of care over volume.

This shift underscores the importance of advanced technologies and strategic services that empower post-acute care providers to meet these evolving value-based payment requirements effectively. NAHC attendees can learn about the latest advancements of myUnity®, the ONC-certified electronic health record (EHR) for post-acute care providers. The myUnity solution unifies care settings into a single patient record and integrates the capabilities needed to support value-based payment models into a single platform, including analytics, interoperability, population health management and electronic referral management.

“Post-acute care providers seeking to achieve value-based care must invest in technologies and resources to succeed,” said Dawn Iddings, SVP and General Manager of Post-Acute Care, Netsmart. “The relationship between providers and technology partners is key to equipping organizations to drive better outcomes, reduce the cost of care for high-acuity populations and successfully manage value-based care models. We look forward to connecting with NAHC attendees to dive into these hot topics during our education sessions and continue to work with our clients to shape the future, making our solutions even better for them.”

By visiting booth 701 attendees can explore Netsmart SimpleHomeHealth Connect, a comprehensive tool that can help automate predictive analytics by analyzing, scrubbing and validating OASIS data using flexible rules to streamline OASIS submission and compliance. By leveraging the iQIES report center within the solution, providers can view CMS reports in a single dashboard across their agencies. Additionally, providers will have the ability to optimize patient driven groupings model (PDGM) reimbursement while supporting patient care.

“I find submitting OASIS assessments and reviewing validation reports via SimpleHomeHealth to be far quicker and simpler than prior methods,” said Marlene Celia, Health Information Specialist, Brockton Visiting Nurse Association.

NAHC attendees can learn about the latest solutions and services of the CareFabric platform including AlphaCollector,  a leading collections management automation solution that leverages robotic process automation (RPA) to help the right collector touch the right claim at the right time. The powerful solution drives specific, prioritized workflows to provide the flexibility to respond quickly to changing priorities in the revenue cycle.
