According to a recent press release, the latest innovation streamlines today’s fragmented DME ecosystem, giving payers the ability to manage the shift of more care to the home. It also is a first step in the company’s long-term plan to automate the entire spectrum of home healthcare services payment within its platform, spanning tens of thousands of healthcare payment (HCPCS) codes.
Tomorrow Health officials lament that even the most well-intentioned physicians, nurses, or case managers can struggle with 100+ page health plan documents that have different types of medical equipment approval. Care providers using Tomorrow Health to order medical equipment for their patient populations can now take advantage of new HCPCS code automation features.
“High-touch management of care transitions from hospital to home or post-acute care to home requires that we simplify and digitize the process, improving care transitions and providing payers, care teams and all parties with up-to-the-minute visibility into care status,” said Vijay Kedar, co-founder and CEO, Tomorrow Health. “Fully automating one of the most cumbersome and technical parts of the home healthcare coding process is a big step forward for drifting down readmissions and restoring lower-cost home settings as patients’ primary place of care.”
“Tomorrow Health makes documentation and order fulfillment much easier, which helps us submit claims and receive payment more timely,” said Shawna Morton, vice president of Contracts at Rotech Healthcare. “Reducing reimbursement complexity is a huge step forward in ensuring patients get the equipment they need when they need it the most.”
