Kinnser software has released a mobile application which is aimed for growing home health field. This app will permit clinicians to complete documentation within EMR even without access to the web or cellular service. The field of home health is hoped to grow in importance as hospitals look for ways to curb readmission rates for certain, more vulnerable populations, notably seniors but also individuals with other chronic illnesses.
Then, the home health industry is likely able to benefit from that development by making it easier with mobile technology for the clinician to complete documentation at the point of care. Kinnser team says that agencies are able to increase the accuracy of their clinical data and improve care.
What else can this app do? It is able to reduce errors and increase accuracy on matters related to billing and quality assurance. Kinnser cited a survey that said three-fourths of home industry leaders view mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets as important tools to improve business and care.Kinnser also says that mobile devices account for almost 40% of clinicians’ digital time working and it hopes to meet the demand with its mobile software especially for more rural areas that lack stable internet connection. Then, they add that its data within the app is fully encrypted. It will work by using any internet enabled tablet, clinicians load the documents that they are scheduled to use that day via their Kinnser Hotbox into the HIPPA compliant Kinnser Link app. Then, the documents are able to be accessed with no internet access. After that, when web access is regained, the previously saved documents are able to be chosen and sent to the agency’s online EMR. The important thing that you have to know is that this app is compatible with iOS and Android tablets. So, whatever your device is, you are able to download this app in your device.
