High Level Process Map

The sales order process for medical equipment varies depending on whether the order is a rental or bought order for a homecare patient or for a facility. Creating a sales order for a homecare patient requires capturing and maintaining various types of information on a patient’s illness, payers details, providers and clinical documentation which are needed to qualify the order and ensure faster delivery of products and un-interrupted payment from payers. For a homecare rental order, this information is leveraged further for order maintenance, servicing and ensuring rental revenues for each cycle.
