New Technology Improves Home Health Care

As Home Health Care becomes a more important part of the complete medical care of a patient, the plan of care often involves more clinicians. The amount of communication between the attending physician, therapist and home care nurse often continues for a longer period of time. In order to deliver seamless homecare, the transmission of doctor’s orders needs to be faster and efficient. AT Home Care has adopted a new technique of scanning doctors’ orders into a computer so they are more quickly transmitted to the home care nurse responsible for the homebound patient.  The physician is able to respond with a push of a button to submit his electronic signature rather than sign and fax something to an outlying office when he gets around to his paper work.  The home care nurse is able to get a quick turnaround on any changes in the plan of care or medications.  By spending less time on paper work, more time can be devoted to caring for the patient…outstanding home care is what AT Home Care is all about!
