)-- Suture Health, Inc., provider of SutureSign, healthcare’s leading electronic signature network, announced today that an interface with Homecare Homebase, homecare’s leading automation software provider, is expected to be available in January 2014. The technology partnership will enable seamless outbound and inbound document delivery, which is expected to greatly simplify the costly task of care order processing and improve agency compliance with the Home Health Face-to-Face requirement.
Designed as a common platform, SutureSign’s web-based service is a network where all doctors and agencies work together – maximizing adoption, profitability and compliance. It automates manual workflow processes and efficiently tracks the status of communications; significantly reducing the time it takes to obtain completed documentation from referring physicians. It leverages unique clinical workflows that are familiar to physicians while enabling them to capture their signature-related revenue, and it boasts the only Medicare-reviewed Home Health Face-to-Face tool. SutureSign eliminates order resubmissions, shortens the billing cycle, provides and assists clients with a proven physician recruitment strategy, manages the physician help desk, and even reaches out to potential “slow signers.”
“SutureSign is more than a product,” says Suture Health CEO and co-founder, Michael Blackstone, MD, “it is a service wrapped around technology that provides significant value to our clients. We are extremely pleased that Homecare Homebase, one of the most innovative homecare software providers, sees value in what we provide to the Home Health industry. We share similar views that care is about the patient, not the paperwork, and we look forward to providing that experience to our common clients and their referral sources.”
The interface will provide seamless sending of home health care plans, orders and Face-to-Face requests from Homecare Homebase to physicians on the network. Once completed by physicians and their staff, the documents will be automatically sent to and processed through Homecare Homebase – closing the loop and automating the entire care order process.
“Homecare Homebase has chosen to interface with SutureSign to further enhance our customer’s ability work seamlessly with referring physicians and provide tools that physicians will prefer,” said Tom Maxwell, Chief Strategy Officer at Homecare Homebase. “This unique integration will allow physicians to easily sign orders from a variety of providers without worrying with several systems and sign-ons to complete these required tasks. This not only ensures the necessary documentation requirement is completed, but that patients are getting timely, well-organized care. The SutureSign integration enables an added level of flexibility to our users and their referral sources and additional interoperability into the healthcare community.”
