If you are a home care agency administrator, no doubt you often feel as if there just isn’t enough time in the day. From scheduling to staffing, assessments to accounting, administrators manage numerous responsibilities. It’s important to periodically take a step back and analyze how much time you are actually spending on each of these responsibilities, and determine where adjustments can be made. If you want to grow your business, good time management is key.
A leading edge homecare system or homecare software such as ClearCare Online is exactly the kind of tool administrators need to successfully manage their busy schedules. ClearCare Online’s homecare system is a complete, comprehensive solution for all agency administrators. Each feature and function is designed to save time and improve efficiency. Here are just three ways:
1. Instant updates and record keeping. Rather than tediously tracking daily activities with unreliable paper care journals, caregivers can record information electronically at the point-of-care using their secure, web-based home care software. Verification of daily activities is immediately visible to agency administrators as well as family members, providing better quality care and reducing customer complaints. Electronic records are always accurate and accessible 24/7.
2. Schedule shifts quickly. How much time do you spend scheduling your caregivers, or fixing scheduling conflicts? The scheduling module of ClearCare Online’s home care system forms the foundation of your agency software solution. All the information you need to schedule your caregivers is right at your fingertips. An intuitive “Care Finder” matches appropriate and available caregivers to each client based on their individual needs. Don’t worry about double booking – an automatic alert will pop up if a conflict is present.
3. Complete billing, and payroll in minutes. Using home care software like ClearCare Online helps streamline all your business functions – including billing and payroll. Administrators can review past shifts, make changes, and add completed care logs all on the same page. Syncing your records with QuickBooks is easier than ever with an improved ClearCare Integration.
ClearCare customers report a 75 percent reduction in scheduling time and an 80 percent reduction in billing in payroll time. What could you do with all that extra time?
