New Orleans, LA, November 24, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- mumms® Software and Outcome Resources, national leaders in Hospice Electronic Medical Records and Pharmacy Benefits Managers, respectively, announced they have established two-way interfacing to increasing efficiency, making it easier for hospices to succeed. Hospice and palliative care facilities will now be able to chart patient information more accurately and efficiently by never having to enter data twice.
Specifically, the partnership between Outcome Resources and mumms® Software will allow patient demographic information and patient prescription information to flow automatically between the two organizations. The partnership comes at a pivotal time for hospices as CMS enacts CR 8358 - Coding for Injectable and Non-Injectable Prescriptions. Now, CR 8358 required data will automatically flow to or from mumms® Software, making it easier for hospices to remain in compliance.
“This partnership will make life much easier for hospices and will provide the basis for more technology between both companies,” said Martin McDonough, CEO of Outcome Resources. McDonough made the announcement with Leo Radosta, CEO of mumms® Software.
The partnership was officially announced at Outcome Resources’ Pathways to Success Conference. This inaugural conference was well attended and a huge achievement, featuring many clinical and administrative hospice topics with practical takeaways to help them succeed. Every session earned CEU hours accredited by the California Board of RNs.
Among the renowned speakers hosting CEU sessions was Keynote Speaker, Stephen Kiernan, Author of Last Rights: Rescuing the End of Life From the Medical System who stressed that the need for hospice, palliative care and advance directives is greater than ever before.
One of the highlights of the conference was a session led by mumms® Chief Technology Officer, Steve Turoff, on EMR innovations and practical solutions for Hospice. Turoff spoke of the changing models in EMR technology and its benefits to hospice.
"The event was full of innovative ideas and people excited about Hospice," said Turoff.
