This healthcare market continues to grow as healthcare shifts from the hospital to the home. Like many healthcare professionals, these workers need to speed up patient encounters, while providing better care.

Providers also face the added challenge of being constantly on the move. Fortunately, home health agency software is designed to automate many of the day-to-day activities professionals encounter, including:

  • Admitting and monitoring new patients
  • Point of care documentation
  • Scheduling
  • Billing
  • Revenue cycle management
  • Claims processing 
  • Payroll processing
  • Administrative tasks

We've created this guide to help buyers better understand this software market and how to identify which systems will best meet their needs.

Reviewers' Choice Products

Alora Home Health AxisCare
AXXESS Brightree Home Health
Perfect FasterNotes

Our Reviewers’ Choice list shows the five highest user-rated software solutions for Home Health when adjusted for total number of reviews and recency of reviews.

If a software solution has more reviews, and more recent reviews, we value those ratings more highly than a product with fewer, older reviews. This is because is it much harder to get 100 five-star reviews than it is to get 10.

We also know that software vendors continually tweak and update their product, so we believe that more recent reviews tend to be more accurate.

To determine which products made the final cut, we looked at how users rated each solution's:

  • Overall performance,
  • Ease of use, and
  • Customer support

A solution can make the Reviewers' Choice top five in all three categories, or just one or two. All software solutions in the Reviewers' Choice have at least 10 reviews from real software users. The final products are listed in alphabetical order from left to right.

For more details on how we selected our Reviewers' Choice, read the full methodology.

What Is Home Health Software?

It generally includes features typical of most electronic health records (EHRs) to streamline the day-to-day clinical operations of providers. More specifically, these systems have been designed to automate nearly every process needed in home care—ranging from clinicals, or point-of-care records, to billing, scheduling and accounting.

Most systems are designed to take you through the Home Health Care Outcome & Assessment Information Set (OASIS) while keeping patient data secure and HIPAA-compliant.

Some systems offer unique features designed to meet the needs of specialty areas, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language therapy or others. (For more information about software designed for other post-acute care settings, check out our long-term care and nursing home software guide and our assisted living software guide.)

Common Features of Home Health Software

Point of care Assists in conducting and capturing information from OASIS assessments and in determining a Plan of Care. Helps with completing HCFA-485 forms, OBQI reports and HHRG scoring. Stores notes from home aides, hospice, therapists and information on patients’ vitals. Functions include internal messaging, medication interaction checks, mobile device and telephony support and infusion therapy support. Also features signature capture, physician portal, ICD-9 database and HL-7 interface.
Billing Home health billing software manages eligibility verification, claim scrubbing and CMS-1500s. Includes case mix calculator and non-LUPA case adjustment. Functions include ERN posting and electronic remittances, secondary payer support, request for anticipated payment (RAP) support, collections management, billing services and UB-04 support.
Scheduling  Home health scheduling software manages the process of scheduling patients to ensure accuracy of daily calendars. Features include conflict alerts and wait lists.
Accounting Automates accounting procedures for agencies. Functions include payroll, general ledger, purchase orders, accounts payable and inventory control. Also handles bank reconciliation, accounts receivable, fixed asset management and budgeting/forecasting.
Human resources (HR) Assists in routine activities including healthcare provider background and security checks, tracking time and attendance and payroll. Handles I-9 forms, certification tracking and review management.
Customer relationship management (CRM) Helps coordinate care of patients across specialties, departments and locations, improving the impact of your referral program. Aids with correspondence related to wait lists for hospices with limited space and to donor management for organizations r
