Q1: How can the software help my business deliver higher quality of care?

Missed visits, caregivers that are poorly matched to clients’ needs, an inability to follow care plans or track clients’ progress, and a shortage of qualified caregivers makes it difficult for a homecare agency to deliver high-quality care. The negative impact of poor care on an agency’s reputation damages it’s ability to attract referrals and new clients. The software should ensure that visits are made as scheduled, care plans followed, wellness outcomes measured, and caregivers match the client’ need and preferences. Homecare providers that can show superior results will enhance their reputation with prospective clients and referral sources. Caregivers and administrators are the largest single expense and are critical to the success of homecare business operations. Their time should not be wasted searching for information, filling out paper forms, manually preparing schedules, or performing any other tasks that distract from tending to clients. Great software helps ensure that caregivers and administrators are handling all their required tasks efficiently: schedules are generated logically, caregivers are properly equipped to meet client needs, time is not wasted on paperwork, payroll and billing are managed automatically, and all vital information is securely and conveniently accessible. Q2: How can the software help caregivers and administrators work more efficiently?
