Stratice Healthcare, which provides electronic ordering technology has announced an agreement with CMB Solutions to facilitate order placements for home and durable medical equipment.

The electronic connectivity replaces an otherwise inefficient and largely paper-based ordering process that currently requires multiple phone calls, duplicative faxes and time-consuming data entry of paper-based orders, the companies say.

Stratice offers solutions that connect providers of home and durable medical equipment and supplies (HME/DME) with medical offices and hospital systems. CMB Solutions is a national provider of patient support and contact services for the home medical equipment industry.

The collaboration leverages Stratice’s e-ordering application that is embedded within physicians’ existing electronic workflow. With this agreement, Stratice and CMB Solutions can now offer HME and DME providers enhanced connectivity to ensure orders are more efficiently and reliably renewed, helping to ensure patients continuity and quality of care.

“Our collaboration is just the type of disruptive software service the industry is demanding to improve workflow, reduce overhead and operating costs, and improve physician access,” said Asif Kidwai, chief executive officer for CMB Solutions.

The collaboration follows on the heels of Stratice’s national rollout of eDMEplus to a widespread base of Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems. The company’s embedded EHR application supports its rapidly growing national network of HME/DME providers.

“With Stratice’s interface with CMB, an HME/DME provider will have an efficient and electronic connection to thousands of medical practices which will afford healthcare practitioners a more compliant, efficient and intuitive ordering process for patients’ medical equipment and supply needs,” said John Brady, chief executive officer of Stratice Healthcare.
