Schaumburg, IL (PRWEB) January 25, 2009 -- Altus Healthcare and Hospice shows improvements in documentation, tracking reports and payroll since going live with CellTrak's mobile healthcare solution.

Altus Healthcare and Hospice, a locally owned, community based, premier hospice and healthcare service provider located in the heart of Atlanta was created to provide an array of personalized, comprehensive services and compassionate care and expert pain management. Most patients served and cared for by Altus Healthcare and Hospice are located in more than 20 counties around the Atlanta area, choose to remain in their home to be looked after by a family member or loved ones. Altus provides support to these primary caregivers who, generally, have never before cared for a terminally ill person, often times providing care to those who reside in a nursing home or assisted living facility.

Whether at home or in a facility, the Altus care team develops a care plan designed especially for their patient's needs for pain management and symptom control, as well as their emotional and spiritual needs. Altus recently selected CellTrak to improve information sharing and documentation at the point of care and has successfully implemented the mobile homecare management solution.

CellTrak: more efficient and more effective!

Altus Healthcare and Hospice showed improvement on documentations, tracking reports and payroll since the implementation of CellTrak.

How CellTrak has made a difference:

 
  • Helps with payroll. It’s an easy process and cuts down on paper documentation.
  • Pulls daily and weekly reports.
  • Tracks employees out in the field by monitoring the nursing visits and an alert will pop up if there was a missed patient visit.
  • GPS tracks mileage from each patient home and it’s stored in the system.
  • Improved productivity by showing duration of patient visits.
  • Communication improvement. Easy to send instant messages to all field support.

“CellTrak has allowed Altus to improve patient care as well as reducing total costs by sixteen percent. Our certified nursing assistants have increased their productivity dramatically and have allowed our employees to see a greater number of patients in the process.” said Hunter Anderson, Accounting Manager for Altus Healthcare and Hospice.

CellTrak is the only home healthcare application that runs on cell phones, BlackBerry devices and other applications devices. The homecare software-as-a-service solution integrates seamlessly with clinical management system, virtually bringing information that was once only in the office out to the point of care for all to share.

“CellTrak is pleased to partner with Altus a leading provider of homecare services in Georgia. Their leadership in using mobility devices to improve care at the point of care is tops in the industry” adds David Qu, COO at CellTrak.
