Forcura and Quality In Real Time (QIRT) are excited to announce a new strategic partnership that teams each company’s market-leading abilities to strengthen quality and workflow in the home care and hospice industries. Forcura is the leading provider of paperless document management and tracking solutions for healthcare organizations. Nationally recognized for excellence, QIRT provides quality assurance, coding accuracy and education, and full clinical consulting services to home care and hospice organizations across the country. The synergy of the two creates a complete document management, compliance and quality assurance solution for the industry.
The partnership is fueled by both organizations’ rapid growth and presence across the nation. Forcura and QIRT have several mutual clients across the country and work with the same vision in mind: to improve patient care. Their values and beliefs are highly aligned with a focus on enabling home health and hospice agencies to improve documentation compliance, reduce cost per episode and improve revenue cycle management.
The joint forces of both companies will help healthcare providers streamline their provision of care by allowing them to spend less time and money on documentation. QIRT staff will now have real-time access to clinical documents from any location and can complete compliance reviews in a fraction of the time. Forcura clients will benefit from QIRT’s quality assurance, expert coding/OASIS review, tools and expertise. Accurate documentation, paperless physician order tracking and improvement in document turnaround time are a few key areas where home health and hospice customers of both organizations have seen returns, resulting in significant cost savings and reimbursement gains.
Before implementing Forcura’s paperless document workflow technology, agencies often found that documents in need of review must be manually sent to QIRT, reviewed, returned and scanned back into their EMR and/or document management system. The partnership allows QIRT staff to access those documents directly as soon as they are received through Forcura. Conversely, agencies using Forcura’s document management tools can now benefit from QIRT’s accurate real-time coding and OASIS review, which will result in accurate, increased reimbursements and improved outcomes.
Craig Mandeville, CEO and Founder of Forcura, explains the significance of the partnership saying,“Forcura and Quality in Real Time partnering enables both of our companies to provide the industry's only end-to-end document compliance solution.” As their client bases continue to expand, Mandeville adds,“Both of our groups have a similar culture and core set of values, all centered on providing the best in patient care. QIRT's nationally recognized expertise in coding and compliance and Forcura's award winning document management and tracking technology enables home health, hospice and managed care organizations to reduce back-office expenses and focus more time on patient care."
Laura Page-Greifinger, President and CEO of Quality In Real Time, agrees: “I am pleased and excited at the prospect of how this strategic partnership will benefit the agencies. Forcura and QIRT each complement what the other is doing, to the enormous betterment of home care and hospice agencies. Forcura's robust document management system allows us the ability to review documents in a seamless manner and in a timely fashion. Documents are not lost and can be retrieved easily.” Document management alone does not ensure accurate reimbursement, Laura explains. “With QIRT, accurate data collection is achieved, reviewed and then returned to the agency so that the agency can lock the documents down for billing. Cash flow is improved. Documents remain intact, safely stored and cared for by the agency. We look forward to a long and rewarding partnership assisting agencies to have the absolute best in data/review services.”
