SimpleLTC: Long-term care software people love to use

Simple, a Netsmart solution, creates post-acute software for regulatory compliance, reimbursement optimization, claims analysis, and quality measurement. Our solutions are designed to simplify healthcare data, and customers tell us they love using it because it drastically improves their daily workflow and reimbursement opportunities.

Recognized as a best-practice industry standard, Simple’s business model and market penetration have allowed us to build the nation’s largest private database of post-acute health assessment data. Tens of millions of MDS assessments have been processed and archived by our software, making Simple the largest third-party transmitter of MDS 3.0 assessment data.

Our cloud-based software products are offered in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, making it easy for clients to access and control their own data. We’re proud to keep our pricing low and transparent, with no long-term contracts required. A 30-day free trial is available for all products.

Because Simple solutions are maintained and updated in the cloud, we have unique visibility into the real-time performance and clinical data of thousands of providers, which helps ensure forms are managed correctly, data and analytics are accurate, and providers achieve optimal reimbursement for the care they deliver.

We value our customers and work closely with them to provide software tools they actually enjoy using. We pride ourselves on quality and consistency, and have kept our prices low and transparent even as we have grown.

Our history

In 2003, SimpleLTC released SimpleCFS™ to replace the cumbersome DOS Care Form System (CFS) for Texas Medicaid forms submission. Within three years, SimpleCFS™ became the standard for SNF Texas Medicaid compliance. Today, more than 90% of Texas Medicaid-participating SNFs utilize SimpleCFS™ to simplify workflow and optimize Medicaid reimbursement.

In 2005, SimpleLTC responded to customer needs with the creation of SimpleConnect™, allowing long-term care facilities to submit MDS batches automatically and to manage CASPER reports online. To date, more than 4,500 facilities have transmitted and archived over 35,000,000 MDS assessments using SimpleConnect™.

In 2013, SimpleLTC launched the first-of-its-kind tool for MDS analytics and reimbursement optimization. SimpleAnalyzer™ is a web-based tool for optimizing and “scrubbing” MDS files, allowing users to leverage the collective intelligence of reimbursement experts all over the country.

In 2016, SimpleLTC was acquired by Briggs Healthcare. Backed by Briggs’ strong success and industry presence, SimpleLTC expanded our popular software toolset to help providers better understand their data, make better decisions and provide better care.

In 2017, SimpleLTC released state-specific quality measures analytics to help SNFs meet and exceed the demanding requirements of state quality incentive programs. Currently, we offer packages for the California Quality and Accountability Supplemental Payment Program (QASP), Texas Quality Incentive Payment Program (QIPP), Florida Quality Incentive Payment (QIP) Program, and Ohio Quality Indicator Program (OQIP).

In 2018, SimplePBJ™ (formerly ezPBJ™) joined the SimpleLTC family of long-term care compliance solutions. With the addition of Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) analytics and automation software, clients can easily assemble, validate and submit PBJ files to CMS.

In 2019, Selman-Holman joined the Briggs Healthcare family. Their industry leadership in Healthcare Coding, Home Health, and Hospice will provide new opportunities for customers to integrate a full range of post-acute software, training and consulting solutions.

In 2021, Netsmart acquired SimpleLTC from Briggs Healthcare to expand its CareFabric platform in the areas of predictive analytics, regulatory compliance, reimbursement optimization and quality measurement while increasing the efficiency of submission of required data to health plans, Medicaid, and Medicare.

In 2022, CORE Analytics joined the Simple family, allowing us to offer the SNF industry’s first real-time view of Claims + MDS + Staffing insights. Now providers have access to a full spectrum of PDPM and Five-Star optimize tools, from MDS data compliance solutions to PBJ/Staffing Five-Star tools to Claims/PDPM reimbursement analytics.

Today, Simple, a Netsmart solution, works closely with clients to provide innovations that simplify post-acute care workflow and compliance. We’re motivated by our mission to “make it simple…be remarkable,” creating solutions that makes post-acute care and reimbursement that much simpler.
