As an agency owner, you already have your hands full with the many tasks required to keep your home care business up and running smoothly. But did you know that staying ahead of the game when it comes to technology could make all the difference in reducing stress levels? The latest advances can help streamline processes, eliminate errors and ultimately make every aspect of your homecare business run more efficiently. So don’t be afraid — take a dive into this tech-filled sea! This post will show you how incorporating updated technology can improve customer service, track your caregivers, and get you paid on time – in short – lower stress levels so that you can focus more time on what matters most: providing quality services to clients, and getting your life back!
1. Automated reminders for appointments, medication schedules, and other important dates or tasks
A homecare agency owner’s stresses can easily be forgotten if the schedule has been updated with modern technology. Automated reminders for scheduling visits for caregivers that help them in remembering important dates or tasks will ensure that no matter how jam-packed your day gets, you and your caregivers won’t forget extremely important tasks. Using updated technology to create scheduling events for caregivers to automate reminders gives owners peace of mind, knowing that caregivers are completing every single task. Not only can automated reminders help reduce stress in scheduling, but also keep owners organized and prepared for any upcoming visits for their home care agency.
2. GPS tracking of caregivers to ensure they are arriving on time and going to the correct locations
Without technology, knowing that caregivers are where they say they are can become a trust factor. Although trust can be a great thing—having the peace of mind to check on an app that your caregivers are where they say they are, can be a huge advantage! Using software like GEOH can help with this because with GEOH you always know your caregivers are where they are supposed to be.
3. Electronic notes in app that make it easy for caregivers to update information about their patients.
Managing the scheduling of series of visits for your caregivers and keeping up with the updates that come along with each patient can be quite challenging. The good news is, modern technology makes it easier than ever to remember all of these little details! Electronic notes in an app make it easy for caregivers to keep updated information quickly and accurately while out in the field. There’s no more need to carry around stacks of paperwork and folders – now you have everything condensed into an easily accessible application. Say “goodbye” to tedious paperwork and say “hello” to a simpler, more efficient way for your caregivers to update their patient notes.
4. A great billing service that makes getting paid quick and easy.
