As businesses around the country have been making the transition from using hand-written hard copies of documents to creating and managing electronic filing systems on computers, businesses have also come to rely on the internet to be able to send and receive electronic documents from other computers via E-mail and instant messaging. For the Health Care field, there are generally many documents being generated every day for forms, records, charts, and signatures. These electronic documents are protected by law to be confidential, as determined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security Rule. Watch to see how Microsoft's Office 365 Business Solutions can help you meet all HIPPA requirements and allow you to have a robust online communication and document creation system.

"OUTCOMES" in the post-acute industry are not going away and most organizations are smartly trying to clarify what that "buzzword" really means and how it will impact their organization. It is now clear that current insurance reform is shifting the financial risk on to the provider while demanding value for every dollar spent on patient care. A home health agency is in a prime position to take advantage of this shift towards outcomes if its care can produce the necessary outcomes. In this presentation we will take a look at understanding OASIS Casper reports and what is necessary to produce the real outcomes that insurance reform will demand and our patients deserve. If you are interested in changing the outcomes produced by your agency, meeting the needs of your patients at the highest level possible and gaining a significant competitive advantage over your competition then join us for the presentation.
