ECS-Electronic Chart System is unique in that the entire system, clinical and financial, is built on the fundamental documents found in the caregiving facility: diagnosis, physician orders, charting, progress notes and care plans. Thus, required clinical documents such as MDS, RAPs, and financial billing/accounts receivable are actually byproducts of the daily work of the care delivery staff. A true computer solution for a healthcare provider should begin at the point of giving the care. Because ECS-Electronic Chart System was constructed with the right starting point, the financial side can "drill down" from the invoice all the way to the original staff-written clinical documentation that produced the line item on the invoice. While this may sound "fantastic," it is possible only because ECS started at the beginning-the point of care. For more information, call (800) 464-9942.

LTC Solutions is celebrating more than 16 years of developing Y2K-compliant, Windows-based, integrated software solutions for the long-term care industry. We offer software and services that reflect our stability, consistency and strength. LTCS provides a myriad of effective tools such as the MDS 2.0 (federal and state), UB92 for reimbursement, J-FELIX for JCAHO accreditation and much more.

LTC Solutions understands the need for effective communication between clinical and billing. That is why LTCS software takes users seamlessly from preadmission through reimbursement, with ongoing, guaranteed regulatory compliance. The preadmission application calculates Medicare/Medicaid case-mix scores to anticipate required services and reimbursements levels, projecting RUGs-III categories before admission. Upon admission, the resident record drives the UB92, ensuring the clinical and billing census are the same-always. This single-entry system offers quality outcome, reimbursement and cost-management tools for effectively operating under the PPS, managed care and consolidated billing.

EOS-Electronic Chart System is unique in that the entire system, clinical and financial, is built on the fundamental documents found in the caregiving facility: diagnosis, physician orders, charting, progress notes and care plans. Thus, required clinical documents such as MDS, RAPs, and financial billing/accounts receivable are actually byproducts of the daily work of the care delivery staff. A true computer solution for a healthcare provider should begin at the point of giving the care. Because EOS-Electronic Chart System was constructed with the right starting point, the financial side can "drill down" from the invoice all the way to the original staff-written clinical documentation that produced the line item on the invoice. While this may sound "fantastic," it is possible only because EOS started at the beginning-the point of care. For more information, call (800) 464-9942. Write 1282 on Reader Service Card

Inservice-Tracker v 5 is truly the software for the busy manager. I-T has been helping users simplify documentation of educational activities since 1990. Having been upgraded since inception, the new Windows version makes the job even easier.

I-T generates reports that JCAHO surveyors have requested and managers need. Reports include: sign-in sheets, percentage attendance reports, individuals' attendance records, CEU tracking, test scores, nonattendance reports, attendees at in-services, address labels, nametags, certificates of attendance, CPR cards and more. Our reports make it extremely easy to identify who did and who didn't attend in-services during a specified period of time.

Our customers like the program because it is simple to use, yet powerful. The program is Y2K compliant. Tech support is friendly and knowledgeable.

ECS-Electronic Chart System is unique in that the entire system, clinical and financial, is built on the fundamental documents found in the caregiving facility: diagnosis, physician orders, charting, progress notes and care plans. Thus, required clinical documents such as MDS, RAPs, and financial billing/accounts receivable are actually byproducts of the daily work of the care delivery staff. A true computer solution for a healthcare provider should begin at the point of giving the care. Because ECS-Electronic Chart System was constructed with the right starting point, the financial side can "drill down" from the invoice all the way to the original staff-written clinical documentation that produced the line item on the invoice. While this may sound "fantastic," it is possible only because ECS started at the beginning-the point of care. For more information, call (800) 464-9942.

That is why LTCS software takes users seamlessly from preadmission through reimbursement, with ongoing, guaranteed regulatory compliance. The preadmission application calculates Medicare/Medicaid case-mix scores to anticipate required services and reimbursements levels, projecting RUGs-III categories before admission. Upon admission, the resident record drives the UB92, ensuring the clinical and billing census are the same-always. This single-entry system offers quality outcome, reimbursement and costmanagement tools for effectively operating under the PPS, managed care and consolidated billing.
