High Tech Comes Home: AlayaCare Launches Schedule and Route Optimization Features

On Thursday, AlayaCare — a global leader in home and community care software, announces the release of several features for home care agency coordinators and schedulers.

Agencies will benefit from schedule and route optimization capabilities, a new applicant tracking system and vacant shift offers via mobile.

These features reduce coordination, transit time and stress for front line home care workers, which enables more focus on client care.

These new features will better equip agencies to address the number one challenge that all home and community care providers face — care worker shortage.

AlayaCare’s CEO, Adrian Schauer, says: “Our home care agency partners need solutions to allow them to deliver more care in the community with their existing resources. Our optimization algorithm allows them to create more efficient schedules and routes. On average we are finding up to 30 per cent reduction in travel time. This capability has the potential to be transformative for the home care sector in a time where demand is outstripping supply.”

“Currently home care workers can travel up to 4 hours to complete 8 hours of actual care delivery,” says VHA Home HealthCare’s (VHA) Director of IT, Drew Wesley, whose agency partnered with AlayaCare to develop version 1 of the feature. “This isn’t ideal for home care workers, their clients or for VHA. The schedule and route optimization feature will reduce travel gaps and also makes life a lot easier for our service coordinators. Ultimately it means a better experience for clients receiving care.”
