mumms Software, an innovator in the hospice and palliative care EMR industry, is pleased to announce that Harbor Hospice, part of Harbor Healthcare System headquartered in Beaumont, Texas, will be among the first hospices to deploy the newest mumms product, Hummingbird, throughout all of their locations.
“We are thrilled to begin utilizing Hummingbird soon,” says Chief Data Officer, Brad Thibodaux. “We haven’t seen anything quite like it. In seeking the best EMR for our hospice, we know we have chosen the right partner as we continue growing to 100 locations by 2017. In this ever-changing and heavily scrutinized world of hospice, we needed technology smart enough to provide all of our sites with hospice specific business intelligence, remain compliant with regulatory changes and still deliver ease of use for our clinicians, so their focus can always remain on providing the very best care for our patients.”
