The Alora Story

Like so many of the agencies we serve, Alora is a story of humble beginnings and rapid growth.

Humble Beginnings

Sathish John, a senior software engineer for a healthcare company in Wisconsin, decided to start his own enterprise. It was 2005.

He moved to Atlanta with his wife and their two young children. And he arrived with a vision: Create new tools to help the budding industry of home health care agencies manage their businesses better.

Drawing on his previous 12 years in healthcare software design, Sathish spent six months developing the first platform. He named it Alora, a word meaning “better than best.”

Product Development

In January 2006, the owner of a home health agency in Florida came calling. He’d learned what Sathish was developing and offered to purchase the first license. Sathish declined – he felt Alora wasn’t ready. “I had it in my mind that it needed to be more complete,” he recalls. “It didn’t have the full scope of features to benefit agencies.” The agency owner said he’d buy another solution elsewhere if he wouldn’t let him use it.

“I said, ‘Give me two weeks.’”

Product Enhancement

Sathish worked non-stop to enhance the platform – and the Florida agency remains an Alora customer today. By the end of that first year, Alora had six clients. Two years later, it had 50 agencies of all sizes.


In those early days, Alora shipped CDs to its agencies. By 2010, the platform was web-based and it was stored in the cloud.


In 2013, Alora was tablet-ready.

First to be 100% Mobile-Ready

Alora became the very first homecare, hospice and home health software platform to be 100% mobile-ready – meaning its entire interface was auto-optimized for all kinds of devices, including smartphones.

Pacing The EVV Evolution

Alora leads the industry in implementing the CMS' EVV mandate with state-specific solutions, empowering agencies to excel in compliance and efficiency. Seamless integration of EVV into the agency’s workflow has helped Alora customers thrive.

Trusted by home health care agencies across the USA

Alora has become the premier, all-in-one software solution, meticulously designed to optimize operations for home health, home care, and hospice agencies, all on a single platform, ensuring excellence in care and operational efficiency.

Sathish John remains at the helm as Alora's CEO, guiding a significantly expanded team that includes veterans from the home healthcare sector and top-tier software engineers. Together, the team continually innovates and evolves the Alora platform to make work life easier for you and your staff.
