Secure Document Management:

Storing accurate records in a HIPAA-compliant location allows you to recall essential documents when necessary. Document management in Generations Homecare System allows providers to securely and conveniently share essential documents with the entire care team, including caregivers and recipients of care. You can also manage permissions to these documents, ensuring only the necessary people can access them.   

Secure Communication Tools

Secure communication tools allow homecare agencies an opportunity to streamline communication processes. Secure messaging in Generations Homecare System gives homecare teams a HIPAA-compliant tool to exchange messages. Keeping all messages in a secure system means you can revisit the messages both easily and conveniently whenever needed.  

Visit Notes

Visit documentation allows providers to keep accurate records of each client’s health and ensure the correct care is provided. Furthermore, precise documentation means providers can mitigate risk factors in real-time.

Using the wellness tool in Generations Homecare System, caregivers complete wellness questions in the mobile app, and the management team is notified of results they deem high-risk. Check out some of the wellness questions we recommend asking.  

Caregiver Scheduling

Accurate caregiver scheduling and records ensure proper care is delivered to your clients.   

 Using scheduling in Generations Homecare System, your staff will receive real-time updates about schedule changes and availability, including double booking, overtime, and absences. Accurate schedules and records allow for easy recall if ever needed.  

Electronic Visit Verification

Simplify documentation and streamline the Medicaid reimbursement process using Electronic Visit Verification (EVV). EVV in Generations Homecare System uses GPS tracking technology to verify that care is delivered in the right place at the right time.   

Reporting Functionality

Reporting Functionality is essential in a software solution as it lays the foundation of effective and safe client care. The reporting functionalities in Generations Homecare System offer hundreds of customizable reporting templates that help providers make informed decisions, track progress, identify potential issues early, and ensure seamless communication among the care team.
