Misys unveils new Homecare solution to improve patient care

Misys Healthcare Systems : 05 October, 2007  (New Product)
Misys Healthcare Systems has unveiled the latest version of Misys Homecare, which has been developed to meet the needs of home health and hospice agencies by offering a new clinical guidance solution.
Misys Homecare enables clinicians to provide efficient, patient-centric care in addition to the reporting tools necessary for mandatory CMS compliance.

'With more than 20 years of experience providing IT solutions for the homecare industry, Misys is aware of the growing demands and pressures to adopt new processes and technology to operate more efficiently. Misys customers are able to achieve the highest levels of success in their markets by integrating and optimising repeatable business processes with Misys Homecare solutions,' said Gary Larson, senior vice president of Misys Healthcare Systems Homecare business unit. 'These clinical guidance solution enhancements will help our customers to effectively utilise their resources, increase consistency and improve patient care by forecasting the likelihood of future events based on data from the past.'

Through new clinical guidance offerings, Misys Homecare makes use of the power of predictive modelling to balance the need to provide quality care with financial and administrative pressures. Strategic alliances with OCS and Philips, announced earlier this year, help Misys bring these capabilities to its clients:

- Evidence-based clinical advice: point of care alerts which identify patients who are at risk for re-hospitalisation or emergent care.
- Best practice workflows: helps home health and hospice organisations effectively and efficiently manage the patient care process to sustain and improve outcomes.
- Remote patient monitoring: via Misys Homecare problem-oriented care planning features.
- Quality benchmarking: the clinical manager's web-based reporting dashboard.

Using the new version of Misys Homecare, every one of its homecare clients can be prepared for the recently announced prospective payment system (PPS) home health refinement and rate update as well as the CMS hospice annual wage index update and billing changes, mandated for adoption by January 1, 2008.

'Misys understands the burdens posed by these changes for busy home health and hospice organizations,' said Cathy McKillip, vice president of operations of Misys Healthcare Systems Homecare business unit. 'Misys is leading the industry by offering our customers a seamless transition to a solution that meets their needs to minimize the risks associated with this mandatory upgrade.'
