Q: What is Home Health software?
A: Home Health software (which can often be called homecare software, or home health care software) is a type of healthcare information technology (abbreviated by some as HIT) utilized as the central tool for the information and processing of home health-related data. Home health software is engineered specifically for companies employing home health providers, and additionally, government entities that track payments to home health care providers.
Q: What is home health software used for?

These software systems allow agencies to handle the spectrum of essential tasks including tracking payments to home health care providers, handling day-to-day workflow, and facilitating compliance through features and functionality designed for those purposes.
Q: Are different kinds of home health software available to all agencies?
A: Depending on the provider and the agency type, there are clinical and non-clinical versions of home health software available. Some agencies operate primarily in medicare certified skilled care, while others may offer non-skilled care (or some combination of both). Agencies that have multiple business lines that may include palliative or hospice care, personal care, and physical therapy may operate more efficiently with home health software that accommodates multiple offerings.
Q: How much does Home Health software cost?
A: There are numerous home health software vendors in the U.S and global market, with prices ranging from hundreds to thousands of dollars monthly or annually, depending on the business model of the provider. The annual cost is also influenced by factors such as patient census, number of users, add-ons and integrations, and other considerations.
Q: Do I need to have home health software to succeed as a home health care business?
A: While home health software simplifies processes, allowing agencies to perform day-to-day functions faster and generally with greater efficiency than agencies manually operating on paper, there is no official mandate imposed on home health agencies requiring the use of home health software. It is worth noting that following the passage of the 21st Century Cures Act, EVV software (electronic visit verification) is mandated in most states. Some home health software featuse integrated EVV functionality.

Q: Is home health software needed for a startup agency?
A: Many startups are recommended by home health consultants and industry peers to have a software in place as they open due to changing regulatory requirements (EVV, NOA, OASIS, HIPAA etc), coupled with the advantages of going paperless paired with the ability to have everyone on staff using the same system. There are currently no states that mandate having home health software in place to begin seeing patients in the U.S.

Cloud-based systems for home health care agency management require internet access generally.
