COLUMBIA, Md., April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxim Healthcare Services, Inc. (www.maximhealthcare.com), an established provider of home healthcare, medical staffing, and wellness services, announced the implementation of two new software systems designed to support high quality care and enhance compliance throughout its operations.
HealthMEDX Vision, a single, comprehensive electronic health record, centralizes patient records and automates the clinical documentation and the billing process. The system uses electronic workflows and step-by-step instructions to ensure compliance with federal and state regulations, as well as Maxim's policies and procedures. In addition, Vision further standardizes processes across more than 360 national locations.
Another electronic vehicle, My Maxim Connect, provides a comprehensive communications and training portal for Maxim's employees. The secure site, which can be accessed remotely or from any Maxim office, allows contract, temp-to-perm and per-diem employees to access training and education opportunities as well as payroll information.
"At Maxim we strive to be the best at everything we do," said Brad Bennett, who has served as Maxim's CEO since 2009. "By investing in quality systems and technology, we believe we can support our employees' ability not only to adhere to proven processes and procedures, but to also enhance communication and improve the quality of care."
Vision and My Maxim Connect are the latest in a series of improvements designed to enhance the company's quality care processes and reinforce compliance. In 2009 Maxim strengthened its commitment to patient care by appointing experienced professionals in the healthcare industry in leadership roles including: chief executive officer, chief medical and quality officer, chief nursing officer and chief compliance officer. Maxim also revised its clinical standards and introduced an expanded compliance initiative that provides employees with access to quality expertise, assessment, monitoring and training programs.
