One Streamlined Care-at-Home System: Delta Health Technologies® Launches Crescendo™

New Software Platform Addresses Care Coordination, Competitiveness and Connections

ALTOONA, Pa., Sept. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- One patient, one solution, one record. Today's changing healthcare environment demands technology that allows you to document and share all the care that you provide, regardless of service or payer source, in one streamlined system.

Delta Health Technologies, LLC ("Delta") answers that demand with the introduction of Crescendo™ — a software platform developed for the diverse needs of home health, hospice and private duty providers.

With Crescendo™, you can build, view and create a patient-centered electronic medical record. But it's the specific benefits of the all-in-one approach that make Crescendo™ such an indispensible and valuable system. It also allows Crescendo™ to have a truly lasting effect on the agencies that utilize it by addressing care coordination, competitiveness and connections.

Crescendo merges patient information across programs and provides the most consistent, up-to-date records between care-at-home providers, physicians, hospitals, Health Information Exchanges (HIEs), ACOs and other providers. Crescendo™ builds on the best features of Delta's best-in-class products, including ClinicalVirtuoso's documentation, AppointMate's scheduling, and Encore's financial management functionality. Decision support workflow tools help establish a functional outcome-based care plan and streamlined patient care delivery.

Patient-centered care lies at the heart of this new platform, and Crescendo provides that by displaying patient information – such as disciplines admitted, diagnosis, risk scores and current medications – on a single dashboard screen. Patient photos, bilingual medication teaching sheets and electronic patient signatures are also available.

Crescendo™ also ensures industry and agency compliance by using industry-standard evaluation tools including links to various industry resources. Additional features include customizable forms and the option to add required fields based on agency policies and procedures.

"Healthcare Reform has elevated the importance of caring for patients outside the acute care environment," said Keith Crownover, President and CEO, Delta Health Technologies, "and homecare, as the least costly venue, will play an increasingly larger role in the delivery of this care. Additionally, reimbursement is ever changing, and only a properly structured home healthcare system can optimize an agency's efficiency in delivering quality care and producing the best results. Crescendo™ facilitates care coordination, while keeping you connected in the healthcare enterprise, and allows your agency to rise above the competition. We're happy to introduce it as the next chapter in homecare software solutions."
