Broomfield, CO, October 16, 2013 – Brother Mobile Solutions, Inc. (BMS) a wholly-owned subsidiary of Brother International Corporation and premier provider of mobile and desktop thermal printing products will showcase its popular PocketJet® mobile printer series at the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) conference in Washington, DC, October 31-November 3, 2013.

“Health care reform and an aging population has put the spotlight on all facets of patient care, including home health and hospice care”

Brother™ mobility experts will demonstrate how these compact Bluetooth and Wi-Fi®-enabled thermal printers are meeting the needs of home health nurses, aides and physical therapists responsible for providing patient care and hospice services in the field. The full-page PocketJet® mobile printer is available in configurations compatible with iOS®, Android™, new Windows® and many legacy Windows® operating systems, and models can be paired with compatible iPad®, iPhone®, smartphones, tablets and laptops in the field.

“Health care reform and an aging population has put the spotlight on all facets of patient care, including home health and hospice care,” said Dave Crist, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Brother Mobile Solutions, Inc. “To meet this increased demand and comply with new regulations for home healthcare, many agencies involved in administering and monitoring care in patients’ homes and hospice sites are seeking to leverage mobile technologies.”

Among the new requirements are EHR adoption and meaningful use, which mandates collecting and reporting quality measures for Medicare Hospice. Home care professionals must also keep accurate records on continuing care for post-hospital patients, including printing patient care instructions and information at their homes or at the site of continued care.

“With the point of care moving beyond hospital walls, these new requirements can pose unique challenges for home health and hospice agency clinicians,” Crist adds. “Technologies that can help increase mobility and streamline in-home care include laptops, tablets and smartphones coupled with specialized software and compact, portable mobile printers.”

Brother Mobile printer series ideal for use by on-the-go home healthcare professionals include the Brother PocketJet® 6 and PocketJet® 673 iOS-compatible full-page mobile thermal printers. Features and functionality of these printers include:
