DALLAS, Nov. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Axxess, an industry leader in home health management software and accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), was proud to be a leading sponsor for the 2015 National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) Annual Meeting & Exposition, held last week at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. Axxess showcased innovative and groundbreaking solutions to empower organizations and professionals in the home care industry.
NAHC represents the nation's 33,000 home care and hospice providers along with more than two million physicians, nurses, therapists and other professionals who provide services to approximately 12 million patients who are aged, disabled or ill. Attendees at the conference were able to participate in more than 90 educational sessions and keynote addresses to gain insight into new technology, marketing and business development practices, legal and regulatory requirements, clinical protocols, and management breakthroughs to help healthcare agencies lower costs and increase quality care.
Axxess introduced the industry to new mobile solutions that empower home care clinicians—for the first time ever—to completely document any aspect of their care using mobile devices such as phones and tablets. The powerful and feature-rich native apps, on both Android and iOS platforms, empower over 100,000 physicians, nurses, therapists and other professionals to focus on serving over 1,000,000 patients—not on paperwork. The mobile apps include an Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) solution to prevent fraud and abuse and help home health organizations accurately document proof of the care they provide at the point of care and ensure compliance. Over 7,000,000 visits have been verified already on the complete home care software solution offered by Axxess. The EVV solution uses advanced encryption, GPS, cellular and Wi-Fi technology to record the date, time and location of visits using phones or tablets and is available to all Axxess customers.
