Intellicure Updating Software to Reflect HHS Telehealth Updates
Amid COVID-19 Emergency
The premier wound care EHR will update its automatically generated documentation to include telehealth components.
THE WOODLANDS, Texas (March 24, 2020) — Intellicure announced today that it will immediately update its award-winning wound care EHR to reflect the recent regulatory changes made by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Last week, the HHS announced that the Office of Civil Rights will waive all penalties for HIPAA violations for using everyday communications technologies, such as Skype or FaceTime, during the COVID-19 nationwide public health emergency. The HHS also announced that the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will broaden Medicare patients’ access to telehealth services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In order to continue providing the most compliant and payer-friendly wound documentation possible, Intellicure will update its revolutionary charting tools to include telehealth services in its automatically generated documentation. The updates will also include Macros for prewritten physician comments relevant to telehealth services, making the charting process even easier for physicians regardless of the encounter’s location.
Agility of this level is unusual in the wound care software industry.
“We commend and support the decisions made by our country’s healthcare leaders during the Coronavirus pandemic,” said Intellicure Chief Medical Officer and Co-founder, Dr. Caroline Fife.
