New Feature: Introducing Multi-Factor Authentication for ClinicianConnect
Your information becomes even safer with the introduction of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for ClinicianConnect. MFA empowers your organization to create customized login authentication requirements with the assistance of an HRS staff member.
In addition to Multi-Factor Authentication, HRS is now providing a tailor-fitted password experience that features the industry's best password security recommendations. With this, HRS created a host of customizable options, including:
- How often the user must complete the MFA login (i.e., every ‘X’ hours).
- How long the user can stay idle before they are automatically logged out (i.e., a maximum of ‘X’ minutes).
- How often the user must log in before their account is automatically locked (i.e., at least once every ‘X’ days).
- Which characters are required for a password (i.e., at least 1 alphanumeric character).
- How often the user must update their password (i.e., every 'X' days).
The use of MFA is optional, but HRS encourages its use to protect your and your patients’ information.
Is your organization interested in using MFA or enhancing their password security for ClinicianConnect? Contact your HRS representative for more information!
Note: This does not impact organizations that use single sign-on (SSO) login.
New Feature: Enhanced Risk Calculation System
To better serve our clients and guarantee the most accurate and thorough availability of patient information possible, HRS expanded our real-time risk calculation system. The new version of this system better processes PatientConnect user health submissions that ClinicianConnect could not process immediately due to a delay in receiving the submission.
New Feature: Millimoles Per Liter (“mmol/L”) Available as a Unit of Measure for Glucose
Care teams now have the option to measure their glucose readings in millimoles per liter (mmol/L).
By contacting your HRS representative, your organization can enable mmol/L as your preferred unit of measurement within ClinicianConnect.
Improvement: Additional Reimbursement Codes Available in ClinicianConnect
ClinicianConnect users gain access to three more reimbursement codes: G0320, G0321, and G0322. These codes are available for you when you create or update a Note and you can select them within the Encounter Type dropdown menu. Additionally, these codes will now appear within your Reimbursement Report.
G0320: Home health services furnished using synchronous telemedicine rendered via a real-time video telecommunications system.
G0321: Home health services furnished using synchronous telemedicine rendered via telephone or other real-time interactive audio-only telecommunications system.
G0322: The collection of physiologic data digitally stored and/or transmitted by the patient to the home health agency (for example, remote patient monitoring).
ClinicianConnect provides access to more than 20 reimbursement codes - empowering care teams to better track the care they provide.
Improvement: A More Efficient Layout for the Patient Profile Basic Information Card
To improve user efficiency and better organize patient information, HRS reorganized the order of information within the Patient Profile’s Basic Information Card.
The Basic Information Card features a more intuitive layout, while users will continue seeing all the information that was previously available.
New Feature: Two New Time Zone Designations Available
We've expanded our time zone coverage to include Atlantic Time and Newfoundland Time. No matter what your patient's "home" time is in North America, you can now choose that zone within their profile no matter where they are!
