The Pen and Paper Problem in Home Health and Hospice

Ever since Hippocrates put pen to papyrus in the 5th century BC, written medical records have been a part of our lives. But 2,000 years later, many agencies are still managing a large portion of onboarding on pen and paper. With home health employment expected to grow by 25 percent over the next ten years,1 the increased volume of onboarding, training, and compliance records will lead to substantial risk to compliance and scalability.

Luckily, there is something that agencies can do today to help ease these issues and future proof their organization for years to come: leveraging digital solutions.

In this guide, we’ll cover:

  • The problems with pen and paper processes
  • How digital solutions like learning management systems and digital skills training can solve the pen and paper problem
  • How MedBridge can help
