Apacheta and Brightree Roll Out an Integrated Mobile Delivery Management Solution to Leading Home Medical Equipment Providers
New Tablet/Smartphone Solution Reduces Costs and Optimizes Delivery Operations
ATLANTA and LAS VEGAS – March 31, 2015 – Apacheta, a leading provider of mobile medical logistics solutions, and Brightree®, the leading provider of cloud-based clinical, business management and billing software solutions for the post-acute care industry, announced today the general availability of an integrated mobile delivery management solution to home medical equipment (HME) providers. Leading HME providers including QMES are implementing this solution to their mobile workforces.
“The Apacheta and Brightree mobile delivery management solution addresses our need to eliminate paper and optimize our logistics operations with an intuitive solution,” says Ben Gissinger regional vice president, operations, QMES. “As a partner, Apacheta was extremely responsive to our needs and requirements. This mobile solution will help add more automation to our processes across the enterprise.”
Apacheta’s mobile delivery management solution integrates seamlessly with Brightree, enabling HME/DME companies to dramatically decrease costs, reduce paper, optimize productivity, track deliveries and assets, accelerate time to revenue for medical claims, and improve patient outcomes. This cloud-based solution supports consumer-grade smartphones and tablets, enabling companies to get up and running quickly without high upfront costs.
“Creating point of delivery efficiencies addresses one of the largest cost components of patient care for HME providers,” said Steve Rogers, vice president product management at Brightree. “As reduced reimbursement rates continue to put pressure on providers, this integrated solution reduces costs by removing manual processes, eliminating duplicate data entry and automatically processing documents through a paperless workflow.”
The solution provides HME providers with an intuitive tablet-based mobile application to handle load management, barcode scanning, electronic forms to ensure compliance, dynamic trip management and electronic proof-of-delivery with signature capture. HME providers are able to plan, schedule, dispatch and monitor field force activity, including real-time delivery mapping and tracking of key metrics such as exceptions, stops made and time spent per stop.
“Apacheta’s mobile delivery management solution has been welcomed by the HME/DME market, as providers are seeking a modern solution that utilizes tablets and smartphones to provide real-time delivery tracking, logistics management, and best practice mobile workflows,” stated James Wee, vice president of business development and sales for Apacheta. “Our partnership with Brightree provides customers with a seamless, end-to-end solution that dramatically reduces paper, lowers costs and accelerates time to payment.”
Apacheta will be demonstrating the integrated mobile delivery management solution in Brightree’s booth (Booth #317) at the Medtrade Spring Conference March 30 – April 1, 2015 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV.
