Suncoast Software


 

Suncoast has focused exclusively on the home health industry for almost fifteen years, and this extensive experience has given them insight into the unique needs of organizations involved in home care and hospice. This expertise helped Suncoast Solutions develop a comprehensive suite of software tools included in one application that is especially well-suited to companies that serve multiple service lines - hospice, home health, private duty, and more – all from a single database.

With the growth of the home care industry in the last decade, it's important for organizations to stay competitive in the market. Suncoast makes this happen by providing a cloud based, patient-centric software that is flexible and, more importantly, always on the leading-edge. Suncoast Solutions captures all critical information - clinical, financial, and administrative - and organizes it into a single consistent and user-friendly record that is fully accessible to staff in every service line.

Working with their implementation consultants (all of whom have experience in the industry), Suncoast is tailored to match your unique workflow and operations. The easy-to-use dashboard permits quick, compliant clinical documentation, both online and offline. There's also an integrated CRM, as well as portals for partners in nursing facilities, physicians, and public referral sources.

In addition to streamlining and improving patient care, accounting, and administrative tasks, Suncoast Solutions also ensures that your business meets today's ever-changing regulatory requirements. The company is actively involved with leading health care organizations like CCHIT, EHRA, NAHC, and NHPCO.

We recommend this software to any growing home health or hospice company, and particularly those balancing the demands of multiple service lines, who seek a powerful, configurable solution that will grow with the business.

This is the most inefficient EMR I have used. It does not self populate. It asks you for the same information in several places but doesn't give you the same drop down to pick from, such as in one spot it asks for race. Ok-Caucasian. Then it asks again, but now you have to pick White because Caucasian isn't on there. There is no way to create a smart phrase. You have to type in the frequently used phrases or lists every time, or save them on a different site and copy and paste every time. Everything is drop down...click, click, click. It takes forever. It is time-consuming. It is very difficult to find any information you want to read about the patient, such as visits, notes, etc. There are so many quirks to it. It will not allow you to save your work at certain intervals, so if you get interrupted and have to stop, you will probably loose everything you have charted and have to do it all over again. It is awful.

Pros

Nothing.

Cons

Totally inefficient, cumbersome, antiquated.

Advice to Others

Absolutely do not purchase Suncoast.

Suncoast does a good job of updating their product to keep up with changing hospice regulations.

Likes Least

The expertise of support staff seems to have decreased substantially in the past few years.

Recommendations

Advise to consider the industry that you will be using the software for - if it is a highly regulated industry like hospice, it is helpful to know that your software vendor will implement regulatory changes without you having to track them down.

on top of the Medicare regulations to keep us compliant! addressed pharmacy imports, icd-10, two tier payment reform etc. we would have been lost if our software didn't keep up with the requirements.

Likes Least

can have slow turn around for support tickets, sometimes response is very quick and other times can take several days which can be frustrating. particularly when I have a device in hand at the time and may or may not have easy access to the device in a few days.

Recommendations

be sure vendor truly understands home health and hospice regulations. they may say they do but in reality do not! you can lose a lot of money if you don't comply with the regulations.

The application is very detailed and highly configurable. That can be both a blessing or a bane.

Recommendations

Check to make sure the product will give you what you need. If you need granular details with the ability to track everything, Suncoast is right for you. Once again, Suncoast Solutions is highly configurable and can meet any requirements or network implementation you may need.

Suncoast is in the know. They are up-to-date and in compliance with everything that CMS sends our way. I feel we have a leg up on everything because we have Suncoast. I don't feel like we are missing anything. They keep us up to date. They are very responsive to our needs. Their educational programs are outstanding. Their account rep follows up and helps with all questions. I don't have anything negative to say. They are great; they help us focus on what we do best: quality patient care! They offer educational forums and webinars. They have a great training program.

Likes Least

I don't have any criticisms of this product. It is well designed. There isn't one thing that they haven't thought of. They send out updates and provide all the fixes to meet new regulations.

Recommendations

We are a small not-for-profit hospice. We feel the investment we made in Suncoast was well worth the price.

The upgrade process from 6.3.3 to V7.x.x was awesome. There was lots of planning and attention to detail on behalf of the vendor.

Likes Least

They did not share enough about the new version upgrade experiences from other companies that went to V7.

Recommendations

Depending on your size and number of users, make sure you have the server spec'd out properly with drive space, memory, and CPU. Do not use the base recommendation as your server spec; build it based on the number of users.

A truly unique aspect of the company is the level of commitment they bring to our organization's specific needs and feedback. From support to training to future development, Suncoast offers a complete package that I would highly recommend!

Likes Least

I have no major complaints with the product and vendor.

Recommendations

Do your research. Just like buying a car, be sure to do plenty of research on options, features, etc. Once you've chosen a vendor, it's very expensive to try and switch. Based on my research, Suncoast Solutions is above and beyond the best software on the market for Hospice.
