Qualidigm today announced its exclusive agreement with Medline Industries, Inc. to market and distribute the company’s web-based compliance solution, SMARTAUDIT™.

SMARTAUDIT™ incorporates all current federal, accreditation and state licensure requirements, assisting home health and hospice agencies to improve compliance with Conditions of Participation (CoP) and to be better prepared for regulatory audits. Highlighted in the September/October issue of the Remington Report as “A New Alternative to Ensure Complete and Accurate Record Reviews”, SMARTAUDIT™ offers unparalleled access to real time compliance data enabling agencies to pinpoint deficiencies and take immediate corrective action to help avoid costly penalties, decrease risk and maintain business viability.

“Ensuring compliance, given the increased regulatory scrutiny home health and hospice agencies face, is a major challenge,” said Tim Elwell, Qualidigm president and CEO. “We are excited about this agreement with Medline to offer an innovative solution that helps agencies navigate these strict requirements and be prepared for future regulatory changes. Medline’s well-established collaboration with the home health and hospice industry and their unique solution-based sales initiatives will further extend SMARTAUDIT™ to agencies across the United States.”

“Recognizing the challenges our customers face every day, Medline looks beyond just providing medical supplies and seeks to partner with companies providing solid solutions positively impacting the overall business of home health and hospice agencies,” said Mike Lee, President of Medline’s Home Care division.  “This partnership with Qualidigm allows us to help our customers keep their commitment to providing quality care through improved documentation, nursing competencies and audit readiness.”

This year, Qualidigm will join Medline at the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) 2015 Annual Meeting & Exposition in Nashville, Tenn. Oct. 28–30. As an exhibitor, Medline will be conducting a series of in-booth presentations related to the ever-changing home health and hospice landscape. Conference attendees will have an exclusive opportunity to learn about SMARTAUDIT™ and see first-hand how agencies can monitor compliance data using the tool. The NAHC 2015 Annual Meeting expects to draw more than 2,500 professionals from across the country who serve the needs of the home care and hospice community.
