You know health information technology (HIT) is an important part of your business operations. You can’t survive in home health or hospice without your core EMR product. Most likely, you also have ancillary HIT solutions to support programs such as referral interfaces, telehealth or analytics and benchmarking products. But how easy is it to implement and maintain these solutions? Chances are there are challenges—and quite possibly significant challenges that can jeopardize the success of a project as well as the stability of the entire organization.

How can we better interact with death and dying in our culture? This is a question we, at Medalogix, are seeking to answer. As a Nashville analytics company, we believe communication, planning and home health and hospice technology can help make the end-of-life process just a little easier—and in turn, help us build a better relationship with death itself. I'd like to share a few of the resources I use regularly to equip others to communicate effectively and compassionately about the dying process.

The National Association of Home Care and Hospice's (NAHC) annual conference is next week, and it's in our hometown of Nashville, Tennessee! As a Nashville analytics company, we're getting pretty excited. We'll get to meet up with our rockstar clients and friends, attend sessions about the home health and hospice industry that will undoubtedly give us new ideas for innovation and present an education session alongside the amazing Jordan Health Services. 

One of the core values of the Medalogix development team is ensuring that our developers have a great experience. We believe this allows our developers to spend more time being creative and focused on solving our most challenging problems. It also helps the company recruit the best talent and allows the Medalogix software platform to scale with the company’s growth.

End-of-life care conversations and advance directives. At Medalogix, we're working hard to address and solve end-of-life care challenges with analytics technology.

One such challenge is end-of-life discussions—essential for patients, their families and friends. While this dialogue is sensitive, and can be uncomfortable, tools to help facilitate these conversations are greatly beneficial.
