SmartChart Brings Monumental Change to the Hospice EMR Industry
December 29, 2020 – Last week, mumms Software unveiled the new dashboard and workflow for hospice clinicians in its groundbreaking hospice EMR, Hummingbird. The highly anticipated new workflow will put patient data at the forefront of care improving the lives of hospice clinicians and their patients.
Among the tools previewed during the demo was the new patient manifest, which replaces Hummingbird’s existing Chart App (View Patient History). The manifest allows clinicians to filter based on any criteria and improves the ongoing auditing and ADR processes. Hummingbird’s clinical features will track critical data points in a patient’s care plan such as ESAS, LCD, and KPS Scores as well as hard to capture data like vitals and measurements. These measurements can be stored and seen over time, adding detail to the patient story.
“The way the care plan, patient scores, and clinical notes are displayed in SmartChart will elevate the clinicians understanding of the patient and make it easier to provide the team-based approach to care,” said Julia Hayes, Senior Clinical Trainer at mumms. “The way the workflow is set up makes it very easy to demonstrate compliance to CMS or a surveyor.”
Lead by mumms CEO Leo Radosta, the demo also showcased Hummingbird’s ability to agilely approach common hospice roadblocks. Feature’s like Hummingbird’s scheduler, which integrates with the Visit Schedule Care Plan, ensures that schedule events and care plan frequency are always one in the same. Features like DocLink (available in the Apple Store) and Cert Ap, allow physicians and nurses to complete and sign orders from their tablet or phone, eliminating the time and resources involved with paper signatures.
“With SmartChart, we’re tackling the heart of hospice care. This is where clinicians live and breathe in the program, so it was important to us that it was user friendly and solved many of the challenges we’ve heard from the community over the last 30 years,” said Radosta.
Hummingbird EMR was released at the beginning of 2020, and already made waves in the hospice community with first of their kind products like ClearPay, a billing engine that ensures over 99% of hospice claims are accepted for reimbursement, and ClearSight, a reporting engine that gives hospices unparalleled access to their data.
mumms Software clients are already using many of the features available through SmartChart and the full system is expected to be rolled out in Q1 of 2021. To learn more about SmartChart visit mumms.com.
