New software integration ensures accurate, reliable mileage calculations for field clinicians providing in-home patient care
LENEXA, Kan. — April 24, 2019 — WellSky, a leading health and community care technology company backed by TPG Capital, and CompanyMileage, a mileage reimbursement solutions provider, have established a new partnership and software integration that automates mileage calculations, streamlines reporting, and ensures accurate reimbursement for WellSky’s home health care and hospice clients.
WellSky’s integration with CompanyMileage creates new efficiencies by accurately tracking and recording mileage traveled to daily care visits directly within WellSky Home Health and WellSky Hospice software. The integration simplifies payroll processes and brings increased accuracy to mileage reports, with some agencies reducing their mileage expenses by up to 30 percent.
“WellSky solutions are built to reduce burdens for care providers, and we’re always innovating to find new ways to empower their work,” said Bill Miller, CEO of WellSky. “With the CompanyMileage integration, our clients can immediately save time and money by automating previously manual tasks, so clinicians can maximize time spent caring for patients.”
With automated mileage calculations in an integrated system, agencies can avoid reimbursement inaccuracies and clinicians can eliminate manual self-reporting to focus their efforts on delivering high quality care. Home health and hospice clients can implement the CompanyMileage integration without changing their daily workflow, and the integration harnesses data already stored in WellSky software, eliminating duplicative, time-consuming data entry.
“Partnering with WellSky brings the benefits of our solutions to even more health care providers and patients,” said Kevin Winters, founder of CompanyMileage. “Agencies can confidently and correctly reimburse their clinicians, and clinicians can travel to visits with the peace of mind that their mileage is taken care of, so they can take even better care of patients.”
Partnerships like this directly support WellSky’s ongoing mission to deliver powerful technology that helps providers across the continuum deliver cost-efficient, high quality care. Increasing efficiency and achieving better outcomes is especially important for home health and hospice providers who are facing new changes to existing business models every day — including the industry-wide shift towards value-based care and regulations like the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM).
WellSky envisions an increasingly interconnected and interoperable future for health and community care that ensures people receive intelligent, individualize care — no matter when, where, and how they need care. To realize this vision, WellSky has developed the most expansive portfolio of post-acute and community care technology solutions and regularly partners with other industry-leading technology providers.
