Partnership to improve the management of hospice patient prescriptions

Springfield, MO (PRWEB) March 07, 2017

HEALTHCAREfirst, the leading provider of Web-based home health and hospice software, billing and coding services, and advanced analytics, announced its partnership with PDC, an independently owned pharmacy benefit manager built purposefully for hospice, to improve the management of patient prescriptions.

This interface provides automatic transfer of demographic data from firstHOSPICE to the PDC software. This saves valuable time for hospice staff by eliminating duplicate data entry, and it expedites the prescription order process to more quickly accommodate patients.

“We are excited to have two of our vendor partners communicating systematically,” said Marilyn Colley, Administrator at Angels Grace Hospice in Illinois. “This makes us more efficient and allows us to respond to patient needs even faster.”

“We are excited to be working with PDC,” said J. Kevin Porter, CEO of HEALTHCAREfirst. “This interface is part of our continued effort to expand peer relationships and create more efficiency gains for our mutual customers.”

Paul Hagen, President and Founder of PDC said, “HEALTHCAREfirst shares our passion for hospice care and our vision to help hospices work smarter and not harder. We are excited to release this interface to our customers.”

The interface has been completed allowing customers to immediately take advantage of efficiency gains. For more information, customers can contact either company.
