Web Charting Extends Home Care Documentation to Physicians

Strong ties between your home health or hospice agency and your referring physicians provide a triple win: for your agency, for patients and for physicians.

McKesson Homecare™ Web Chart, part of our suite of home care software solutions, extends patient charts and home care documentation to physicians - any time and any where there is an Internet connection. Your patients can benefit from improved care, while timely communications between referring physicians and your agency help streamline care delivery and increase satisfaction among physicians.

McKesson Homecare Web Chart is fully integrated with McKesson Homecare (formerly known as Horizon Homecare™) helps bring you the best in home health physician web charting.

McKesson Homecare Web Chart enables referring physicians to access:
  • A complete directory of their patients in the home care agency
  • Their patients' home care documentation
  • Detailed lists of unsigned documents that can be signed electronically
  • Care plan oversight time tracking

Help Improve cash flow and Reduce costs

The system alerts physicians via email when there are orders to be signed. It then gives physicians access to all their home care and hospice patients' orders, certifications and recertifications, which they can then sign or reject electronically. This functionality helps make the physician's job easier and helps improve your cash flow by expediting home care documentation and reducing the costs and time associated with sending hard copies to the physician.

Physicians using McKesson Homecare Web Chart can access a timesheet that logs the amount of time the physician spent reviewing specific patient cases. The log can be easily edited, printed and used by the physician for record keeping and Medicare billing.
