The Ultimate in Care Management Software

How can I save money for my home care agency?

New York -- May 28, 2024

What is Home Care and What are the Different Types?

When it comes to running your own business, there are a lot of ways to miss out on revenue opportunities or even lose money. One of the most common ones is not having a proper management system in place. If you are starting out as a new agency, or even if you are established but noticing a dip in new patients or caregivers, one thing to be aware of is how you are running your agency. Are you spending too much time putting out fires that should be easily resolved? If it feels like you are ignoring your business development goals because of small issues becoming larger, then it is time to reexamine your agency and see where the inefficiencies are.


Inefficiency can really bleed out your time and money, in both indirect and direct ways. A poor home care management system can cause headaches, and even, cycles of the same problems coming up over and over again. While you might be able to find short term solutions, if inefficiency is baked into your system then it will be tough to break out of that. Using short time solutions can seem like a good idea at first, because it means you can go on with your day. But if you sit down and really think about how much money you are leaving on the table, you’ll see how it can be worth it to think about the bigger picture. 


Using a home care management system like Carecenta can eradicate these small headaches. That is because many of these long term solutions are built into the system. Regarding scheduling, billing, HR, and payroll, Carecenta knows what home care agencies need to succeed. The management software is built for ease of use, maximizing revenue potential, and both employee and client retention.


The other added benefit of Carecenta is that it is designed for easy Department of Health audits. These processes are scary and stressful, but they do not have to be! Thanks to Carecenta’s detailed documentation and automated cloud-based technologies, information required by the Department of Health can be pulled up within minutes. This will save massive amounts of time, and can let you pass your audit quickly and resume your day to day work. If you are spending an extended amount of time on your audit, then that is going to eat through precious revenue-earning time and possibly lose some credibility with your caregivers and patients.


Maintaining client and caregiver retention is another way to save money. Acquisition costs are rising, and the time it takes to train new employees can become an even bigger burden if you are experiencing a high turnover rate. In order to keep your stakeholders happy, your management system must be seamless and extensive with features. If you only have the bare minimum of features, then you are not accounting for more nuanced situations that come up. You want to protect your agency, however, for all possible situations and provide a framework for your caregivers should they run into difficulties that you might not have anticipated. This is where Carecenta comes in. Because of our decade-plus experience in home care, our services can accommodate all sorts of situations and problems. It can be almost impossible to anticipate every situation–especially if you are new to the industry–but with Carecenta, we do that thinking for you. Carecenta’s features are designed for any potential problems and deliver long-term solutions so that you can devote your time to developing your business. 


Problems in your agency cost money. Even, or especially if, you are using short-term solutions to put out your fires. With a system like Carecenta, you can resolve any issue quickly and establish frameworks for when those come up again. Carecenta’s features are all-encompassing, and designed to make your agency run smoothly for your caregivers and staff members. With that, you can save money, and come up with strategies to grow your business.
