Frequently Asked Questions

The first stage of acquiring basic client information and assessing whether or not services may be provided is client intake. On the other hand, client assessment is a detailed evaluation performed by home care specialists to evaluate the client’s health, care needs, and design a personalised care plan.

Your home care agency can ensure client confidentiality during intake by adhering to privacy regulations, such as HIPAA, using home care software. The software consists of a wide range of security features like configurable access controls, encrypted data storage, secure communication channels, user authentication, data backup capabilities, and more. What further enhances confidentiality is employee training on data privacy.

Efficient and smooth communication with stakeholders is key for home care agencies to manage emergencies or urgent care needs effectively. Obtaining accurate emergency contact details is the first step to it. Ensuring caregiver training on extensive emergency response and enabling them to maintain adequate documentation also enables continuity of care and informed decision-making.

All the essential information to develop a comprehensive care plan is recorded during the client assessment process. This includes: Data on Demographics, identifying caregiver skill set/training, specifying tasks like companion/personal care and transportation needs. The client assessment adjusts the care plan to the client’s needs and guarantees that your caregivers are properly trained to provide high-quality care.

Once the assessment is complete, it is saved as a care plan to guide caregiver and client’s family! The caregivers can obtain this information through the mobile app or the portal on the client’s profile page.
