At HealthWare we integrate Outcomes/QAPI/VBP related questions directly into our Skilled Nursing Visit (SNV) notes.
This allows the nurses to see if the outcome for a particular patient is trending up or down during the episode versus just at the discharge. The main advantage to this is that there is still time to correct any errors that could influence the outcome. Go to https://www.healthware.com/analysis/QualityImprovement
HealthWare is the only Home Health Point of Care software provider to offer these QA features.
Our report displays patients who have been discharged, readmitted, or retained for chart and care plan review and can be used to develop a corrective action plan.
HealthWare offers a totally automated and electronic way to comply with the 2018 COP requirement to keep patients and representatives notified of changes in a patient's plan of care.
- Utilizes digitized voice or Text/SMS messages.
- You determine who gets notified and how.
- Integrates with Care Plans, Clinical Documentation and Change Orders.

We had two questions asked following our live COP webinar. Gina Mazza’s answers are below:
||If I have hire a new Administrator after 01/13/2018, can that person be a non-Nurse (Candidate with Master in Health Admin) but with 1 year of Home Health Experience?
||According to the CoP’s, an administrator hired after 1/13/18 is required to be a physician, a registered nurse, or hold an undergraduate degree. Also, required to have experience in health service administration with at least 1 year of supervisory or administrative experience in home health care or a related health care program.
||Is the patient representative only for patients who are unable to represent themselves?
||No, a patient representative is not a legal guardian. Patients choose to have this person involved in their care. (In addition to a legal guardian or without a legal guardian.)
