Homecare Software Review: The Cost

New York -- September 28, 2019

If you manage a home care, adult day care, or nursing & home infusion agency odds are you depend heavily on traditional or no software at all.

Historically that has been quite common, but one of the major problems is as your sales grow your bottom-line (or profit margin) dips south. To say the frustration that brings would be an understatement.

If this describes the challenges you face on a weekly basis, the info below will save you time and money. Plus imagine no longer having all that paper towering over your desk like the photo below. 

We decided to analyze the following:

  • What is the ACTUAL BOTTOM-LINE COST of
    traditional home care software?
  • Are there ALTERNATIVES?


To gain clear bottom-line insight, ask yourself the following questions:

How many work hours has your home care software solution
actually replaced in a given week?

Let’s break it into categories:

1 How many actual work hours do your schedulers, or case coordinators spend on scheduling visits?
2 Are you able to determine the exact number of work hours spent on visit verification without using any electronic visit verification (EVV) software? To be specific, it's the software that automatically tracks all confirmations.
3 How many weekly work hours are spent attempting to find replacements instead of using an automated map-based replacement search?
4 How many weekly work hours are spent on billing converting visits into billable items?
5 How much time is spent on critical areas of caregiver compliance checks and payroll?

Now, imagine those 5 questions answered by the 5 answers below:

1 Schedulers would spend 70 percent less time scheduling by using map-based Availability Search.
2 All confirmed visits using electronic visit verification will not require ANY time. You will only focus on no-shows, which generate instant notification.
3 Replacements with real-time multiple caregiver offers, are transmitted in minutes using text messaging and map features.
4 Completed appointments are immediately and automatically turned into invoices for billing.
5 All 42 compliance items in medical, hiring, in-service classes and evaluation were tracked automatically for all caregivers. No time was spent on doing Payroll due to automatic processing. Just like billing.

Let’s subtract the top 5 points from the bottom 5 to generate an approximate savings of 40 hours per 100 patient cases per week:

Based on the above, an extra staff member's annual pay is utilized for every 100 patients, or twice as much, if you are not deploying new and agile home care software that speaks to your bottom line.

Otherwise, you can just sit back and enjoy the benefits of your Carecenta homecare software.
