Frequently Asked Questions

What is Continuum Charting?

Continuum Charting is simple Point of Care System design for Home Health agencies that primarily bill through Medicare. Our system consists of commonly used and Medicare required forms which have been converted from hard copy paper to electronic web based forms. This allows nurses in the field to complete daily paperwork while in the field and submit to the home agency location without having to physically drive to the office. Continuum Charting is NOT a full featured Home Health Agency management system. It is designed to compliment your existing system with simple to use and affordable Point of Care.
