Hospices Adding Inpatient Capability at Hospitals

In-patient hospice services  bring many benefits to patients, including the ability to easily transition from one care setting to another. However, the logistics of integrating the administrative responsibilities of a hospice service into the larger organization’s workflow can present several challenges.

In many cases, integration requires moving from paper to an electronic medical record solution. In doing so, issues of interoperability are likely to arise, if careful forethought isn’t given to the transition process. At the same time, financial challenges such as claims denials could arise if patient documentation is incomplete.
