Custom Home Health Communication System

Modern health companies are reliant on software to treat their patients and run their businesses. This is especially true of home health agencies, who need to coordinate with patients, health professionals on the field, and the administrative staff that supports them. Custom home health communication systems can provide a tailor-made solution for home health care companies, offering functionality that saves countless labor-hours and money while reducing instances of human error. North Texas Web Design can create custom home health communication software that exceeds the needs of medical companies in North Texas.

Anatomy of a Home Health Appointment

From the scheduling to the post-appointment follow-ups, home health appointments have several components.

  • The patient coordinates with a scheduler or program to set the appointment time.
  • The scheduler assigns an appropriate health professional to perform the appointment.
  • The health professional retrieves data to determine which tools and medications are necessary, and how to travel to the patient’s home.
  • The health professional asks the patient questions, records the answers, administers care, and records their actions as well as additional patient data.

Post-appointment tasks such as setting up prescriptions, scheduling follow-up appointments, and complying to federal and state laws and regulations guarantee that the end of the visit is not the end of the labor.

How Home Health Communication Systems Can Simplify Home Health Appointments

Custom home health communication systems often include multiple parts, such as a centralized web interface that administrative staff can access and mobile apps that health professionals can use to record data and fill out forms in real-time during home appointments.

Many tasks pertaining to home visits can be automated, including the assignment of health professionals based on patients’ needs and health professionals’ experiences and credentials.

A common feature in-home health communication systems is guidance systems that direct health professionals to the patients’ house. Forms and questionnaires can be simplified by including only questions that are pertinent to the patient (as opposed to paper forms that ask male questions if they are pregnant) and allowing for simpler updates as laws, regulations, or patient health change.

  • Stellar! Mike and his team overhauled my website lickety split and are always prompt to respond when I need help maintaining the site to make new changes.

  • We have had the great pleasure of working with Mike McLeland for a number of years now. The quality of our website is fabulous. The true test is of course, does it make the potential clients want to take the time to inquire about our services? It absolutely does this. He created it so that it is easy for that potential client to decide quickly and with ease that they want to know more about us and our services. This is rare because a lot of websites in our industry in particular are extremely hard to move around once you have arrived.Additionally, Mike has a rare quality as a Web Designer. He understands who he can send an email filled with technical terms to and who he shouldn’t. The owner of our company receives the technical emails and I get the total opposite. This makes it so much easier for us to work with him.Lastly, his level of care is, ” Off the Charts!” There I no other way to describe it.I hope a lot of other businesses use his services.

  • Over the past 30 years of my career I have had the opportunity to work with a number of IT professionals. I have never worked with someone as good as Mike. He is incredibly responsive even for the smallest requests and makes major changes happen at a very fast pace. I am, repeatedly, impressed every time I have an interaction with him. He is so respectful of his clients and understands, especially with someone like me that has limited IT knowledge and capabilities, how to speak my language so that I understand what is going on. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to drastically improve their IT capabilities and web design whether it be a small company or a large one.
