Mi-Co Offers Free Mobile Data Capture Needs Assessments to Home Health Care and Hospice Providers

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC--(Marketwire - October 24, 2007) - Mi-Co, the mobile data capture software company, today announced that following its successful exhibition at the National Association for Home Care and Hospice (NAHC) conference in Denver, the company is offering a free "Needs Assessment for Mobile E-Forms for OASIS" to organizations that provide home health and hospice care.

To apply for the free assessment, healthcare providers may contact Mi-Co through the Mi-Co Web site or by calling (919) 485-4819 x1617. Eligible companies must currently be submitting claims to Medicare for reimbursement and have 20 or more mobile caregivers who are required to complete OASIS forms at offsite locations.

"Home healthcare is really about the patient," Mi-Co Chief Executive Officer, Greg Clary, said. "Mi-Co reduces the OASIS forms demands on nurses so they can translate their time-savings into patient care benefit at the point of care."

Mi-Co's heralded Mi-Forms Home Health & Hospice Mobile E-forms solution enables mobile caregivers to instantly capture handwritten data into electronic forms that can be easily uploaded into a database, existing EMR system or directly to the Federal HAVEN system, eliminating rekeying and the errors that come with it. Mi-Co's electronic OASIS forms capture data through handwriting recognition technology or digital ink. Mi-Co is the only company providing mobile handwritten electronic OASIS data capture.

Wilson County, NC, Home Care & Hospice conducted an ROI study for its tablet PC Mi-Forms implementation. The agency currently saves a nurse time- and quality-equivalent of approximately $300,000 per year. It saves approximately 1.5 hours per nurse, per day, while its data capture error rate dropped by 50% and late submissions were cut by 75%.
