• Simione Central Holdings (Atlanta) has acquired Outcomes Planner from the Visiting Nurse Service of Greater Woonsocket (VNS). Outcomes Planner was developed by VNS as a clinical documentation package that meets both OASIS and ORYX requirements. The system is a clinical pathway and care plan solution that defines and measures outcomes on each visit or patient encounter. Outcomes can also be measured by disease state and episode of care. The completed planners can be scanned or incorporated in a handheld device and electronically submitted monthly for state, regional, and national benchmarking. Outcomes planner has more than 100 customers. Jerry Knight, CEO of CareCentric Solutions, said Outcomes Planner fits with CareCentric’s product, The Smart ClipBoard. CareCentric is currently developing an electronic model of the system that will integrate with ClipBoard.
