Hospice

Uniting interdisciplinary teams for more compassionate care.

Caring for people with life-limiting illnesses requires an EHR as responsive as the staff who use it. MEDITECH’s Hospice solution has you covered. From referral and designation of benefit periods through bereavement, our solution provides you with documentation, care planning, and other functionality designed for end-of-life providers.

Our Hospice solution is a fully-integrated component of MEDITECH’s EHR, supporting:

  • Process-Driven Workflows
  • Compassionate Care Needs
  • Robust Quality Reporting.

Process-Driven Workflows

MEDITECH supports a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach to care that includes hospice functionality. Clean, task-based workflows guide staff to produce a comprehensive, interdisciplinary care plan. These workflows also help you to prepare for interdisciplinary team (IDT) meetings by capturing team members’ contributions and gathering them into an individualized patient summary for easy sign-off by team members and physicians. Intelligent design flags time-sensitive tasks, prevents bottlenecks, and ensures adherence to regulatory requirements.

Compassionate Care Needs

Deliver comfort care sooner with direct referrals and certificate of terminal illness e-Signature capabilities. Hospice-specific assessments and charts keep care consistent, while still providing the flexibility to accommodate individual beneficiary and family needs. Our solution also helps your agency to maintain seamless bereavement services, including customized care plans and mailings.

Volunteers are an important part of the hospice mission. Our volunteer management capabilities keep care compassionate while tracking interactions with patients and other visit activities.

Quality Reporting and Surveys

MEDITECH’s EHR includes substantive reporting tools to support your agency’s QAPI program as well as the CMS HQRP for maximized reimbursement. Collect and calculate data more efficiently for public quality measures using a built-in Hospice Item Set. Regain your productivity with regulatory guidance that helps you stay ahead of evolving government regulations, and a View Charts feature that simplifies regulatory surveys requiring chart audits.
