FocusChart was created in partnership with homecare clinicians using a nursing process approach. The nursing process is the cornerstone of the practice of nursing, and its clearly defined 5 step process is easily used by every other discipline.
Using the nursing process approach allows the clinician to define the “what” and “how” of nursing practice and allows clinicians to determine measurable outcomes for homecare patients.
FocusChart offers an easy to use nursing/problem solving driven workflow that all disciplines can follow with confidence.
FocusChart Makes the Check Box Approach Obsolete
For years, clinicians have struggled in making sense of “checking boxes” when using EMR templates for homecare. This ‘checking the box’ approach has brought frustration among clinicians and homecare administration and created documentation that is incomplete, not patient specific, and performs poorly during State and Deemed Status surveys.
Contractors such as Palmetto, NGS, CGS, ZPIC’s, RAC’s, etc., know the weakness among the various systems and often focus on those areas of vulnerability.
Using FocusChart provides every clinician the opportunity to prepare clear and defensible documentation.
Individualized and Unique Information
FocusChart gives individualized and unique information indicating:
- WHAT care has been provided and what care remains to be completed
- Patient and caregiver responses to the care provided on every single note
- Current patient status
- Outcomes for care provided
- Coordination of care
- Support for any clinical decisions based on those unique and individualized patient assessments
