Two Suspect Areas of Better Together
Once upon a time Human Resources ensured people were paid appropriately for their education and skills. Gentiva transferred that responsibility to employees via its complex, convoluted clinical ladder. Kindred characterized the clinical ladder as "well respected and well established." It's neither at our hospice site.
Kindred also called Gentiva's paltry investment in electronic medical records "significant." When our hospice paperwork multiplied like mice, Gentiva leaders said it was in preparation for EMR in early 2015. How will Kindred's closing on Gentiva, also in early 2015, impact this molasses paced rollout? That question was not answered in the company's latest "better together" missive.
