Providing private home care can be a daunting task for skilled nurses. The quality of care is often minimized by other necessary administrative duties as well as employee and patient data management.

The software also provides a platform for linking authorization records and adding information through scanning, thus eliminating redundancies. Records are available in six formats including TIFF and XML files.
The private duty home care software authorizes the relevant multiple service lines required for service delivery. Insurance can be managed using this platform as well. The management encompasses Medicaid, physician plan of care and other care services. It is also linked to scheduling, clinical services, and billing. The software can also prevent scheduling outside of authorization and provides schedule templates in regard to authorization.
The software has an efficient scheduling management application available for the patient and the employee. The schedules are integrated with authorizations and billing to confirm payment compliance. The schedules can be managed and visits tracked through the software. Patients can also be linked with a suitable health care worker in regard to proximity and other pertinent factors of the care required.
The software provides all the data required for point of care. It is compatible with both Windows and iOS operating system and works on Android devices. The automation, real-time updates and availability of information improve the productivity time for private home care employees.

Aside from the aide care plan, scheduling billing and payroll features, the cloud-based software tracks through GPS or NFS visits made, provides Clock In and Clock out documentation, captures patient and employee signatures and monitors visits in real-time.
The billing process is also simplified enabling home care agencies to manage Medicaid, Medicare insurance and private pay with ease.
