In December, Immediate Home Care and Hospice partnered with Forcura LLC, the healthcare leader in document management and document workflow. This affiliation has allowed Immediate Home Health and Hospice to become a paperless company and reduce their cost per episode.
Forcura is a web-based platform that seamlessly integrates with any healthcare company’s existing EMR software and allows them to send, track, receive, and store patient chart documentation electronically. By drastically reducing the time it takes to send and receive Face To Face encounters and physician orders, the Forcura solution eliminates the manual processing of these documents. The solution enables web-based accessibility to any patient chart document, by any staff member, at any location.
“The Forcura solution has far exceeded our initial projections of administrative cost savings,” said Cheryl Peltekis, Vice President of Clinical Services of Immediate Home Care and Hospice. “Within the first two months, we realized improved cash flow, write-off reductions and administrative cost savings. Forcura’s consultative approach enabled us to implement a highly impactful tool and automate most of our back-office processes.”
Immediate Home Health and Hospice is a Pennsylvania based, home health and hospice provider dedicated to maximizing quality of life. The agency was founded by two nurses built on a foundation of improving patient care. The agency has been accredited by The Joint Commission since 1996 for providing care to Philadelphia and surrounding counties.
“We are extremely excited to learn of the positive impact Forcura has made within Immediate Home Care and Hospice,” said Craig Mandeville, CEO of Forcura. “Cheryl and her husband Bill have built an impressive company and to learn of the sizeable return on investment Forcura is producing for their organization in a short period of time is a humbling experience.”
According to Immediate Home Care and Hospice, Forcura has delivered above and beyond their expectations. The benefits from the software and support are outstanding and highly recommended to any healthcare provider.
Forcura’s software (forcura.com) is a highly customizable document management solution for healthcare providers and managed care organizations. The software gives healthcare providers the ability to send, track, receive and securely store documents with accessibility from any device from any location.
