Brightree® Home Health and Brightree® Hospice


 

Brightree Home Health and Brightree Hospice provides a combination of a native iPad point-of-care app and cloud-based back office software which allows post-acute care providers enforce standards and best practices to ensure quality care of the patients. The solution offers built-in checks that alert clinicians to all mandatory and missing information required for visit documentation.

Brightree solution eliminates any need for charting as the entire documentation is done at the point-of-care only. The solution offers a paperless workflow, starting with online patient registration to the plan-of-care documentation to billing and final reimbursement. With built-in validation rules, clinics can accurately process claims with complete details and mandatory documentation.

The real-time notification feature ensures that both nurses and patients are notified for upcoming visitations in advance. The solution also offers a comprehensive dashboard that highlights business KPIs and allows clinics to generate and download customizable reports.

I think I have covered the just in the above. Thanks for listening.

Pros

I like the variety reports the system offers. I also feel that this is a good system for an agency that has a census of 60 plus.

Cons

I do not like the turn around time of when I have to contact support. I also do not like the fact, the system updates in a 25 hour window with the understanding I can process admission for a speedy update, however, due to the fact you have to do that function one at a time is very time consuming.

I like how the charts flow from one to the other. It makes everything easier and you are able to cover more information on your patient without guesswork.

It takes a while to sync at times. It can get be frustrating waiting on visits to load. I believe spirituality shouldn't be applied in the social work field.

Just a great platform for home health and very user friendly.

Pros

I just love Brightree. As a user in our Home Health office, I find that the AFO side is so easy to use and when I call support I get exceptional assistance. The team at Brightree is always helpful and if they don't have solution right away, they take the time to get an answer and always follow up.

Cons

When updates are made to the AFO and I didn't see the front page updates, I wish it would make you take a tutorial to show you the updates before you can move forward. Sometimes I miss the front page updates and am surprised by new updated pages. BUT usually I get the hang of an update pretty quickly.

Overall, probably the best EMR I've used so far. Also, I've had good experience when reaching out to customer support.

Pros

the fact that it will not allow you to submit documentation that's missing mandatory information.
Easy flow when navigating through the note while documenting.
For the most part, customer support response is very good and helpful

I personally love the Brightree program. I also believe the support team does a great job when I have opened tickets. Fast and accurate!

Pros

I am a biller and scheduler, which makes both jobs easier to understand in the program. Scheduling with Brightree ensures frequency's are entered correctly and in turn makes checking visits at billing time go smoothly.
There is no fear that regulations are met with this program. The task hot list notifies us of any upcoming regulated tasks needing attention.
It is not hard to find any info in this system. everything is where is should be.

Cons

Internet access in the field is needed to use the communicate feature.
Sometimes updates are too drastic

I appreciate the excellent service we get when calling in for assistance, thank you.

Pros

The ability to see visits and coordinate services so much more quickly than when they were on paper. Not having to wait for papers to be turned in to process payroll and billing. My not having to enter those visits manually. Less paperwork for patient files and employee files due to being online. A quicker turn around for claims. Less hands handling information insuring accuracy.

Cons

As an office staff I work mostly on a desktop so what I see and what the field see sometimes is in a different format therefore causes a communication stall. That is the only thing I can think of that is a challenge.

Overall, BT is very good software for our agency and encompasses home care and hospice. We had a zero deficiency survey for home care and hospice so compliance is the best aspect.

Pros

BT keeps our agency in compliance as new regulations are introduced they integrate them into the software.
We have a particular account manager who goes over and beyond to explain options available in the system, follow up on any problems and supports us through the changes.
The Ipads for field staff are fast and efficient, do not get virus, and our clinicians are extremely pleased.

Cons

Not understanding the system or using it to its fullest is a problem for our agency. We need better webinars and education material to be able to maneuver through the software as it is very complex. It is not exactly "user friendly".

Pros

As the billing coordinator I can say that almost all of my monthly billing is completed and billed on the 1st day of the month. There are so many checks and balances that the software does on its own, it really helps you to stay complaint and ensure you meet regulations.

Cons

Biggest con for me is no discontinue effective date in the authorization screen and this is minimal.

Still need to have some form of an alert for nurses to see when an order is placed by the physician. In our agaency the MD/NP have to still use paper. We have too many papers and forms still when we were supposed to go all EMR.

Pros

It is a plus to be able to use a mobile IPad. Being able to amend documentation is nice. We still learn everyday about this system. Maybe in a year we will get used to it.

Cons

Too many steps in almost all aspects of the system. In some areas it would be much more efficient if previous entered documentation would re-populate automatically.

My son works as a software engineer and I have asked him about the above issues- he explained it to me why things are different - but if the engineers would know what we prefer as users that maybe a simple fix.

Pros

Documentation is quick and easy to use. Really like the way it flows as in head to toe assessments. Pain is always required to be assessed.

Cons

Consistency with how the software looks from AFO and C-POC- would be nice if it was more consistent with how it looks. Also- The calendar for documentation please use calendar views - not scroll calendars and to be consistent- it is nice to see the days of the week. ie for what day nurse will be coming again.

Very excited at what potential Brighttree may offer our agency.

Pros

Very user friendly interface with the Apple iPads. It appeared to have good work flow from clinical to office seamlessly. The billing features seem robust and user friendly as well.

Cons

Some improvements could be focused on using the GPS more effectively with patient care and EVV. Would like to see what systems the have interoperability with. I know this is a focus but what systems are they focusing on may impact our decision.

The ease to enter patients is one of the best features for this software. I secondly like how it is linked to the insurances and I can check eligibility via Brightree.

Cons

Duplicate Patients!!!! There are so many duplicate patients and you can not delete them once you put in a note. There should be a way to merge these patients.

Shady way to do buisness

Product Quality

Product Quality
Quality

I have been using Brightree for 3 years. It's been ok. Not good but not terrible. It's super hard to track AR as the system starts the billing cycle when the patient is entered not when a device is delivered or service is rendered. So if you delivered a device or service 60 after inputting the patients work in progress, the AR report would say its 60 past due the day it is delivered. This is super frustrating and makes it hard to manage AR. The worst thing is that they slip in an auto contract renewal so that they can strong arm you into paying for service even if you are asking to terminate. Its very shady!! If you don't give 90 notice prior to your "auto renewal" you are obligated to pay for another year. We tried to cancel but we did not have 90 days until our renewal. We have been told that we have to pay for another years service. Like I said, super shady way to do business. So now we are forced to pay for a year of Brightree along with our new billing software.

Pros

Very few

Cons

A very dishonest feel to the way they conduct themselves.
