If you are looking for a solution to increase efficiency and profitability while providing the highest level of care for your patients, Alora is the answer.
Alora provides COVID-19 screening for patients and staff. Special alerts in the system can remind employees when the screening was not completed for themselves or for the patients.
COVID-19 Monitoring Center provides a centralized view for your agency to monitor the COVID-19 risk level for your staff and patients. Instantly know when a staff member or patient is at risk. You can also see who has completed the screening for the day and who has not.
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.
Alora’s home health EMR system provides documents and tools for the clinicians, facilitating ease of use, completeness, and compliance.
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 therapy, and medical social worker) and more.
Alora offers comprehensive OASIS assessments to help agencies thoroughly assess their patients while staying compliant with Medicare guidelines.
Assessment includes Medicare M00 questions, comprehensive assessment questions as well as many tools including Braden Scale, Fall Risk Assessment, Nutritional Assessment, Pain Assessment, and much more.
Non-OASIS assessment is available for agencies that prefer to use a shorter assessment for patients who do not require a Medicare-mandated OASIS assessment.
In addition, Alora provides a non-skilled assessment that may be used for non-skilled only patients.
Alora offers the traditional CMS-485 as well as an enhanced “living” 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 dynamic 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 POC in its most current status, incorporating all the additional orders that came in since the cert period started.
With Alora’s built-in faxing capability, Plan of Care and Verbal Orders can be faxed directly from the Alora system to the physician with just a click.
Alora also generates Patient Readable Plan of Care.
Did your caregivers actually do what was required in the patient’s plan of care? You won’t have to wonder – Alora home health software generates patient-specific visit notes that are derived from the POC.
Do your staff complete any custom paper documents that were created by your agency?
Alora’s Custom Documents option lets you upload your master documents into the Alora system and have your caregivers complete and sign those documents electronically.
You no longer need to rely on paper documents.
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 logs on medication administration and materials to educate patients.
Do you administer medications for your patients? If so, you will love Alora’s Medication Administration functionality.
You can specify the scheduled times for each medication. Based on the scheduled times, Alora provides quick and easy identification of approaching (or delayed) drug administration.
Documenting medication administration is a breeze with a click of a button and features such as multiple medication administration reduces time spent on charting so that more time can be spent on care.
Alora provides the Medication Administration Record (MAR)
“No Internet” is no problem — clinicians complete documentation offline when the Internet is not available, then transmit their documentation with a single click when they have access to the Internet later. Alora provides native offline applications for iPhone, iPad as well as Android phones and tablets.
Your clinicians’ assessment of patients is improved by a powerful analyzing tool that spots inconsistencies and other problems in OASIS forms. The result: Maximized reimbursement and better patient care.
You can create and maintain an Emergency Preparedness Plan for each of your patients in Alora’s EHR for home health.
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 Scheduling Software: Alora allows you to manage schedules from the angle of a patient, caregiver, or agency as a whole.
Alora’s scheduler 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, add, and update visits in rows and columns format.
Electronic Visit Verification:
EVV 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’s electronic visit verification solution empowers caregivers with a software tool to check their schedules, capture signatures, and complete plan of care-based visit notes.
In addition to facilitating compliance and caregiver accountability, Alora EVV brings efficiency for the agency because the EVV information captured flows to billing and payroll, eliminating manual entries.
Alora EVV comes with “live monitoring” capability – a powerful tool that provides you by-the-minute visibility on home visits that are in progress as well as delays and no-shows. You will know when a caregiver does not show up and you can proactively take the necessary steps to deal with the situation before it is too late.
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. Click to learn more about Faxing for Home Health Agency
In Alora’s Quality Assurance Center, you can review caregivers’ completed documents – to approve or return them for correction.
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.
Track all your physicians and related information. Alora Home Healthcare Software verifies PECOS enrollment. When entering a physician to the system, Alora provides the option to automatically bring in physician information from the NPI registry facilitating faster entry and accuracy.
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.
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.
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.
Communication Log allows your agency to document any type of communication that you would like to keep a record of. Communication Logs are available for patients as well as for staff. You can run reports filtered by communication type.
Alora Home Health Software helps agencies perform better as every feature of the Home Health EMR system has 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) related to patients, caregivers, and 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.
Home Health Billing Software:
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, Medicare Advantage, 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.
Pre-Billing QA provides a quick view of any missing items for all of your patients before billing can be performed. This tool is very useful for billers as well as staff responsible for compliance monitoring. Missing items are shown in red for quick attention.
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.
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.
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.
Store your paper documents in Alora Home Health Care Software and go paperless. You can store documents for the clients and for the staff. You can create folders in Alora to organize your documents by category.
Does your agency have more than one office? Alora Home Healthcare Software can accommodate all of your offices within one system, for no additional cost.
This tool can be a great time saver if your agency tracks travel time or mileage for your caregivers’ visits. Alora can automatically calculate the travel time and mileage, utilizing a mapping service, for your caregiver’s travel from one patient visit to the next.
You can customize this tool to not to calculate travel time if the time gap between two visits exceeds the limit set by you.
Knowledge is power, and Alora Home Health Care 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.
