April 2016: Connecting With Our Community
This spring we have been given the opportunity to see many old friends, and make new ones, at several wonderful events! Following our warm reception in early March at the PACE Association of Michigan meet and greet, we had the new opportunity to sponsor a table at the National PACE Association Spring Policy Forum. Soon, Dr. Schamp, Dr. Brett, Matt Zimmerman, and I will be heading to beautiful North Carolina for the annual North Carolina PACE Association conference. It has been an honor and privilege to maintain client relationships with 8 programs in the state of North Carolina, and we hope that through our Gold Level sponsorship we can express our sincere appreciation for the continued trust in our services.

While the advancement of EHRs has many promised benefits, there are risks to program integrity that could lead to compromised patient care or violation of regulations. We have pointed to a number of compliance issues in previous articles, and now want to draw attention to EHR signature requirements.

The trust that NC programs have put in us is not isolated to one state. In fact, we are proud to have ongoing agreements with over 40 programs across the US! This trust is simply based on our proven track record of helping programs increase compliance and revenue. If you are at all curious about what kind of impact we can make with your program, please don't hesitate to contact us today. We will schedule a 'no obligation' overview of risk adjustment, and explain how Capstone can help your program achieve greater success.


Thank you to everyone who came by and visited with us in Michigan or Washington DC. Also, if you are planning to attend the American Academy of Home Care Medicine Annual Meeting (May 17-18th,) or the National PACE Association Summer Conference (June 3-5th,) we look forward to seeing you there!


The PACE community is truly special, and we feel blessed to be a part of it.
