Home Care Software Benefits

As you compare your options, it’s easy to get carried away with the specific features of one platform over another. While features are certainly important, we recommend that you focus first on the benefits that will have the greatest impact on your agency, both today, as well as three years down the road.

Improves Client Acquisition & Revenue

Home care software, like MatrixCare’s Home Care Solutions, can help you convert more leads to clients and identify your most effective referral sources and marketing efforts.

Reduces Costs

MatrixCare’s Home Care Solution is configurable, and its easy-to-use scripting tools can capture clients as a percentage of revenue. When selecting a solution make sure that it offers pricing options that lower the total cost of ownership as you grow, opposed to escalating.

Supports Growth

Look for a solution that can keep up with you as your company explores new opportunities in the constantly changing home care industry.

Enhances Caregiver Recruiting & Retention

Attracting qualified caregivers and reducing turnover continue to be two of the biggest challenges for many home care companies. The best home care software can actually improve your recruiting and retention efforts by making it easy for caregivers to record attendance, track tasks and access visit notes or assessments.
