DeVero is a cloud-based home health solution for midsize and large home health, hospice or therapy and rehabilitation agencies. It can incorporate a variety of forms, patients and user accounts. It also offers multi-site consolidation across an organization, making it suitable for companies that want to analyze data across multiple agency locations.
DeVero’s point of care features functionality for HCFA-485 forms, OBQI reports, medication tracking, drug interaction checks, signature capture, an ICD-10 database and more. DeVero also offers an integrated suite of applications for billing and scheduling.
In 2016, INC Magazine ranked DeVero the fastest-growing software company in home health, and Software Advice named DeVero a 2017 Reviewer's Choice for Overall Performance, Ease of Use, and Customer Service. DeVero can be accessed on any device with a web browser, including desktops and mobile devices.
Product has ease of use for front line end users (Point of Care Staff). User guides/Training guides are on EMR/online for users to refer back to. Device agnostic (use of any browser and device with internet capability). Low hardware expense per end users (use of lightweight devices smartphones, tablets). We have contracted therapist and having them have the ability to just login with just a browser is helpful. Use of multiple browser tabs to view multiple data fields. Vendor response time is quick to respond to customer questions about product and customer basic product enhancements. Assigned "Customer Manager" is very helpful in customer & product/vendor relationship to improve customer knowledge of product and product/vendor development.
Compliance, Alerts, and Quality. Most of the Compliance and Quality is still a manual task, if coming from paper to electronic this would not be an operational issue, but if you coming from a more complicated EMR that has checks against the Plan of Treatment and warning if the end user is going out of compliance and orders must be produced. Lack of internal messaging in EMR, communication about the patient is key and documentation and notification is critical. Workaround is create a form/document in the EMR and also notify all disciples using business secure messaging or email. There is a limitation in some reporting exports (30 days, quarterly, number of lines export). Dealing with pre-billing audits and "integration log", DeVero has to puss data to a separate billing software (note: data is one directional). User do not have a warning or alert system (End of Episode, last week of frequency) Medicare Traditional billing is not an issue (RAP then Final Bill), but dealing Medicaid, Medicare Advantage and Commercial Insurance is another issue (where every penny counts). Processes and cross references must be done to insure all services are accounted for and billed, typically done with comparing CSV exports. Interoperability with other vendors and itself is lacking. If a customer has a contracted partner using DeVero as there EMR, currently there is not an ability to quickly handshake those files from a DeVero Agency file to another DeVero Agnecy file. Workaround is to download from each Agency site and re-enter data on there agency site.

6 of the agencies we contract with use DeVero and we really using it. The system is simple and straightforward.
1) I like the way we can easily see the previous notes. 2) Contact information for other clinicians assigned to the case is clearly listed beside the body of information in the chart. 3) Editing notes is easy. 4) Communication about corrections is easy to see and coordinate.
1) It is easy to write a very poor note with this system. 2) DeVero's online training is terrible. Horrific. Lame. (Fortunately, its relatively easy to figure out and train for.) 3) It would be nice if we could have information move forward between notes. 4) It would be nice to be able to create drop-down goal templates because 5) the current pre-made goals are awful.
If you want to create audit-proof notes, you'll need to train staff for how to do it. It is relatively easy to train people to document intelligently with this system. Be sure you save copies of your training so you don't have to constantly reproduce it. I have some nice tips our clinicians have developed over the years.
Clay, thanks for the review. We’ve heard positive comments from a number of therapy providers that serve our customers across the country and we’re glad your team enjoys using DeVero as well. We appreciate the feedback and have some great news for you regarding the “cons” you listed- DeVero recognized the need to improve the online training and has completely revamped its field staff online training tools as of this month. There are now 11 task specific video training modules available for on demand training. DeVero also runs live instructor lead web based training sessions for field users every Wednesday. Any active user is welcome to attend and you can sign up for one of our upcoming training sessions by clicking on the Training link in the upper right hand corner of DeVero.
Regarding note info- DeVero does support the mapping of key information (but not the entire note) from one note to the next as part of the site customization services offered to each of our customers. Also, custom care plans with unique order and goal templates are completely within the scope of the DeVero offering. Please have your customers reach out to our support team if they would like help with this. Thanks again for the feedback and opportunity to help.
