LENEXA, Kan., Dec. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mediware Information Systems, Inc. announced the launch of its informational outreach programs for the home infusion, HME and specialty pharmacy community. Mediware's mission is to help home care providers better understand the ever changing home care arena while also providing business insights and best practices needed to grow their business and the industry. Through these programs, providers will gain tips and valuable information to help run their business more smoothly and improve the industry as a whole outside the realm of software. Mediware will offer whitepapers, studies, surveys, testimonials, free interactive webinars and other resources throughout the year.

Mediware has built an expansive portfolio of solutions in the home infusion, HME, home health nursing and specialty pharmacy sector since 2008, including 2013 acquisitions of Definitive Homecare Solutions (DHS), known for their flagship solution CPR+, and Fastrack. Development of a single management solution to serve all business lines is underway, enabling home care providers to streamline clinical and operational workflows, improve revenues and further grow in all areas to meet their unique business. Mediware, which serves more than 1,300 homecare customers, will offer these free resources to the entire home care community.

One of Mediware's first program offerings will include a live competitive bidding webinar. This webinar is designed to help all HME providers master the complex rules and regulations from each round of competitive bidding to grandfathering and subcontracting. The webinar will take place Jan. 29, 2014. More information can be found on Mediware's website.

Other topics will include ICD-10, inventory control, point of care, home care accreditation standards, outcomes reporting, collections and reimbursements and document management.
