With rising financial costs and two software systems that did not integrate with one another, Advanced RehabTrust faced a slew of problems that lowered agency productivity and prevented them from providing the highest level patient care. SoftwareAdvice.com recently published a case study that profiles how the deployment of new software helped this home healthcare agency improve operations. Advanced RehabTrust was able to realize the following after implementing the Kinnser home health software solutions:

1. Improved Processing and Billing –
Before switching software, patient processing took from 2 – 3 weeks. Now, the process can be started within the first 24 hours of patient contact, and completed in less than a week.
Billing also saw significant advances. The two years prior to the software implementation, over $94,000 dollars were lost because of errors. Since, there have been zero dollars lost due to billing errors.

2. Better Patient and Agency Communications –
Even with 50 percent overall patient growth, Advanced RehabTrust was able to lower the time spent on communications because of the system’s scheduling functionality. The application organized the frequency of patient visits and provided reminders for the staff on important patient needs.

3. Faster Payroll Processing –
With new Web-based bookkeeping, payroll processing time was reduced from four days to four hours, and saved $1,000 a month because of the eliminated paper costs.

Advanced RehabTrust has seen several significant improvements since deploying its new system. They lowered their overall costs and most importantly, they improved home health care for their patients.
