OHARA Selects DataCare Medical Case Management Software for Nurse Case Managers
SAN JOSE, Calif., May 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- After a thorough evaluation, OHARA, LLC (http://www.oharallc.com), an established managed care company in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, has selected DataCare's case management software to manage their nurse case managers.
"As a URAC accredited case management company, OHARA'S business practices are closely monitored to assure the highest quality services in the health care field," says Pat Farritor, CEO at OHARA LLC. "So it's critical for us to have the transparency and visibility to provide effective management for our field-based and telephonic personnel."
Because DataCare case management is a Web-based solution that provides software as a service (SaaS), it allows complete access to tools and information, no matter where employees are working. It also gives more control to owners and managers. This allows OHARA to enjoy:
- Transparency and workload visibility - The case management solution efficiently controls case assignments and due dates for reports, and provides automatic notifications of pending filing dates. Managers can quickly track all cases, and have access to a full history of case actions. They can even change the owner of the claim instantly through an Internet browser to reassign case workloads.
- Integrated medical standards and billing - Completely integrated tools provide total functionality for remote workers, no matter where they're working. This includes quick access to evidence-based guidelines, disease codes, and treatment codes. They can copy and paste between any documents including integrated evidence-based guidelines, medical reports, and task lists for more efficient document processing. Auto-populated reports cut preparation time by 20% and reduce errors.
- A pool of actionable data - Claim demographics, faxes, emails, letters, reports, notes, and medical records are all stored in a database for a single, unified view of claim demographics that allow supervisors to easily reconfigure workflows, quickly query information, and analyze data.
- Compliance and security - A comprehensive disaster recovery plan for the DataCare system protects data and meets stringent audit standards for SAS-70 Type-2 plus HIPAA compliance.
DataCare Web-based products are delivered as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution. Since its launch in 2003, the DataCare system has processed workers' compensation claims for several thousand users. DataCare's customers rely on their HIPAA-compliant Web applications for fast and easy access for internal and external professionals, even those working from remote locations.
"Case managers frequently report they are bogged down in tedious reporting and billing activities. The DataCare medical case management software streamlines and simplifies these tasks, saving as much as 1.6 hours per day for each case manager. Because the DataCare solution is Web-based, these time-saving tools are convenient for remote workers, and provide more control and visibility for supervisors," says Mike Allen, Business Development Director at DataCare.
