Front-Line Clinical Care
Mobile-ready. Our entire platform is optimized for tablets and smartphones. All information is safely stored in the cloud. So your caregivers can access Alora home health software anywhere, anytime
Complete clinical documentation. That includes assessment, evaluation, plan of care and visit notes for the six disciplines covered by Medicare (skilled nursing, home health aide, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, and medical social worker) and more. Your agency may also create and track simple custom documents in Alora that are specific to your agency.
Assessments (OASIS and Non-OASIS): Alora Home Health Software helps agencies stay compliant with CMS requirements. Alora offers comprehensive OASIS assessment to help thoroughly assess patients while staying compliant with Medicare guidelines. Assessment includes OASIS M00 questions, comprehensive assessment questions as well as many tools including Braden Scale, Fall Risk Assessment, Nutritional Assessment, Pain Assessment and much more.
For non-Medicare/non-Medicaid home health services, agencies may opt to perform the Non-OASIS assessments which are comprehensive yet faster to complete.
Alora also provides Non-Skilled Assessment for patients with non-skilled services only.
Plan of Care (POC). Alora offers the traditional CMS-485 as well as an enhanced individualized plan of care helping agencies to stay compliant with the Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoP) requirements. Generate Plan of Care automatically from the assessment or create independently.
Alora’s POC is a living document that can track the progress made and goals met during the course of the certification period. At any time, agencies can view or print the plan of care as signed by the physician as well as the most current plan of care, incorporating all additional orders that came in since the cert period started. Alora also generates Patient Readable Plan of Care.
Visit notes based on Plan of Care. Did your caregivers actually do what was required in the patient’s plan of care? You won’t have to wonder – our software generates patient-specific visit notes that are derived from the POC.
Medication profile and administration, with interaction alert. Your clinicians enter and maintain information on patient medications – and the software automatically checks for drug-to-drug interactions and drug-allergy reactions (powered by Medi-Span). Alora also generates Medication Administration Records (MAR) and materials to educate patients on their medications.
Offline documentation. “No Internet” is no problem — clinicians complete notes offline when the Internet is not available, then transmit their documentation with a single click when they have access to the Internet later.
Built-in OASIS analyzer. Your clinicians’ assessment of patients is improved by a powerful analyzing tool that spots inconsistencies and other problems in OASIS forms. The result: Improved reimbursement and outcomes while ensuring compliance.
Electronic signature capture. Patients and caregivers can electronically sign documentations using their finger or mouse. Captured signatures are embedded into the clinical documents. Alora home health software can capture the GPS location with timestamp while patient signs as the proof of visit.
Other capabilities. Alora home health software offers many other features to help clinicians and agencies to stay compliant and thrive in home health care. Some of the additional features include Braden Scale, patient specific Emergency Preparedness Plan, shift visit notes, supervisory visits notes, missed visit notes, supply log, transfer summaries, discharge summaries, patient vitals history dashboard, physician portal and much more.
Home Health Agency Management
Alora Home Health Software provides powerful and easy-to-use tools to manage all aspects of a home health care agency operation.
Scheduling. It’s so much more than a calendar: Alora allows you to enter and view schedules from the angle of a patient, caregiver or agency as a whole. Our software also alerts you to potential conflicts or issues with compliance (such as frequency of visits or prior authorizations). And you can view the schedule the way you prefer – by month, week, day or certification period. Alora Home Health Software also includes a “batch entry of visits” option that allows the ability to view, enter and update visits in rows and columns format.
EVV (GPS or telephony based). Electronic Visit Verification is becoming a requirement in many states – and Alora has it fully integrated into its system. Alora EVV simplifies the workflow for the caregivers as well as the agency administrators. Alora EVV empowers caregivers with a software tool to check their schedules, capture patient’s signature and complete plan of care based visit notes. Alora EVV provides the agency with "live monitoring" capability that allows the agency administrators to maintain visibility on home visits that are in progress as well as delays and no-shows. The system captures proof of visit while facilitating compliance and caregiver accountability. Additionally, Alora EVV brings the greatest efficiency for the agency because the electronic visit verification information captured can flow from home visits to billing and payroll, eliminating manual entries.
Electronic faxing. Alora Home Health Software lets you send and receive faxes with a single click, without the need for a machine. Alora's fax confirmation log keeps a permanent history of all the faxes sent as well as their status. With Alora's 1 click Home Health faxing, agencies can save hours of staff time each day while maximizing efficiency.
Document review / Q.A. In Alora's Quality Assurance Center, you can review caregivers’ completed documents – to approve or return them for correction.
Prior authorization tracking and monitoring. We’ve made it easier to comply with payers’ requirements for prior authorization. Alora alerts you to authorization information that’s missing or attempts to exceed limits – whether the authorizations are recurring or for a set period of time. During billing, authorization codes automatically flow into claims.
Secure internal email. Stay in contact with all staff, including caregivers in the field, with HIPAA-compliant email (which features built-in mobile texting to let them know email is waiting). Internal email keeps your agency’s people connected with each other.
Dashboards and analytics. It’s your single-view look at what’s in progress – and what still needs to be done. Which 485 forms are due? Which orders have yet to be sent? What were the most recent OASIS assessments? We display it all in one place, and you get to determine the level of information your agency’s users can access.
Medicare eligibility / DDE access. Alora checks Medicare eligibility for patients and gives you a detailed report with relevant information. Our software also lets you access the Medicare DDE system in a single click.
Other capabilities. Alora Home Health Software helps agencies perform better as every feature of the Home Health EMR systemhas been built based on recommendations from home health agencies. Some of the other key features include patient referral tracking, hospitalization log, paperless records (scanned document storage) for patients, caregivers as well as office, patient communication log, caregiver communication log, custom fields for additional information tracking for patients, and the ability to handle multiple offices in one system.

All software for home health may offer some tools for running the agency. The difference with Alora: Everything we provide is to make it easier for you to stay compliant and accomplish tasks. (When you make life easier, more gets done.)
Billing for all payers. We designed our billing solution to help you maximize revenue. Alora Home Health Software lets you generate electronic or paper claims for all payers – Medicare, Medicaid/waiver (in any state), VA, private insurance and private pay. Before you bill, you can double-check accuracy and compliance with a built-in, pre-billing Quality Assurance tool.
Accounts receivables and financial reports. It’s robust: Alora keeps track of charges, payments, and adjustments and creates summaries or detailed financial reports tailored to the needs of billers, administrators, owners, and accountants. Payments can be posted electronically or through manual entry.
Payroll. With Alora, you can track pay rates for each caregiver – standard rate or special rate for each service type – and calculate gross pay for each employee for the pay period. Pay rates can be set by time or by visit. You can also generate reports and export payroll data.
Automated Travel Time & Mileage Calculator. Does your agency keep track of the travel time or mileage of your caregivers traveling from one patient to the next? Alora can save you a lot of time and effort. Our built-in Travel Time & Mileage Calculator can accurately calculate the travel time and mileage using a mapping service. This tool can be configured to not calculate travel time if the gap between one visit to the next exceeds the time limit set by you.
Employee credential tracking. Up-to-date driver’s license, auto insurance, TB tests and other credentials are a necessity for your front-line team, and Alora helps you track it all. Our software alerts you as key dates approach – and you can customize tracking and alerts to meet your agency’s specific needs.
Report generation. Knowledge is power, and Alora Home Health Software gives you deep knowledge of your agency’s activities by letting you generate reports on Medicare cost, census, visits, compliance, financials – and a vast array of other areas. Best of all, you can customize report generation based on your agency’s needs at any given time.
Other capabilities. We’ve made it easier for your back office to run better by automating the time consuming manual tasks into easily manageable processes. Alora Home Health Software helps agencies to perform better through its rich set of features that are easy to use. Other features that facilitate back-office administration include user security manager, CAHPS export, month-end-closing, and the ability to customize based on the agency’s business.
