Zoey Health Services Report/Experience With Axxess.

Let me share my recent experience with you.My biller does not know that medicare has new measures on home Health Agencies now on 'Rap Suppression'. Axxess billing dept.,put one of my patients on Rap Suppression by name Elnora Jones due to over late rapping. That not withstanding, a repeat late rap on the same patient occurred again and medicare implemented rap suppression.This is why I am demanding a refund and termination of their contract whether I breached the contract on not. I am still with Axxess home health system but not with billing dept. Axxess billing dept.does not have good reputation, if nothing is done to correct them, it is going to affect Axxess in general because 3 of my friends pulled out of axxess because of how the billers handled their problems.

Pros

Axxess is a complex organization big enough to contain almost everything required for a smooth running of Home Health Agency. Supper customer service ready to talk to you 100 times a day solving problems with happiness.
There staff takes correction without frowning, makes amend their mistakes without victimizing there customers.
In fact, this is a good quality with Axxess staffs they know that "Your customer is always right". I am talking with experience.
Where I have problem is the " Billing Department".

Cons

The Billing department has to be re-structured. More experienced billers are needed, and or frequent up dates through in -service training are required of the billers to be current.Secondly, they are not suppose to be harsh and rude when addressing a frustrated customer whom out of Axxess billers mistakes and in-experience made the customer loose money.This bad attitude to work makes them not to realize their mistakes and carelessness so they are not ready to change quite unlike Axxess software staffs. Obstructing business cash flow is dangerous.

Needs Improvement

Overall, We are happy users of Axxess and they have been a great EMR partner. If they could just institute more frequent updates to the basic functionality to make the software even better and more thoughtful I would then be able to give a 5-Star review.

Pros

Windowed environment provides intuitive ease of use, anyone that is familiar with the basic operation of a Windows or Mac computer will find it easy to learn to navigate Axxess. However, Some basic functionality is lacking enough to be more than just an aggravation.

Axxess training videos are excellent and much appreciated.

Cons

Orders Manager - With CMS, and Managed Care payors strict guidelines about timely signatures, the lack of document age, as well as the ability to easily document attempts to have documentation signed is a major flaw causing the need to build an outside tracking system which needs to be reconciled daily.

Billing Manager: Batch remittance feature would be nice for managed care insurances. Ability to pre-select claims that should be split up by G-Code for easier billing with managed care (e.g. Medicaid requires authorization number for PT, ST, OT visits and those need to be billed separately from SN and HHA visits [which also require an auth. #])

Record Highlighters: All windows showing "lists" should have the ability to highlight records for easy viewing (like in the billing manager windows)

Better Navigation: When viewing patient specific records in the billing manager (or other windows where applicable) there should be a link to tie back to the patients chart, as opposed to opening the charts window and searching for the patient.

Patient "Vital Statistics": It would be nice to have an easier way to access patient information such as ICD-10 Codes, Address Information, Insurance numbers, SS#'s, etc. for quick copy so that they can be easily pasted into other billing applications and portals. As opposed to going to multiple windows to find the information, or edit screens where vital information could be accidentally deleted.

Message Searching: Axxess Mail feature should have the ability to search mail by subject, by patient, by recipient, by sender, or by date.

General Searching: All windows showing lists of records should be searchable including all windows of the orders manager.

Patient Visit Guide: A special form/window should be created in the software where the case managing RN could document visit specific information such as, location of patient (where to park, what door to go to, etc...), patient specific visit preferences, and other relevant information about the visit for ease of communication between RN's and other staff about the patient.

Our company is a commonly owned group of home health and hospice providers located all across Texas. Because we were not pleased with all the double data entry and lack of features and functions provided by our previous provider, the company assembled a team of 16 home health agency software systems users: from the markets where we conduct agency operations, composed of each agency role; i.e. intake clerks, nurses, administrators, and billers, from all over the company; to objectively research the platforms and to choose the best platform to support the overall growth of our agencies into the 21st century. Before using Axxess Agencycore, we used HealthCareFirst, and reams of paper forms and spreadsheets. We use the browser-based version of Axxess so every update is immediately available. We purchased Axxess in August 2011, after an extensive process beginning in the summer of 2011. Our statewide team of HHA pros performed a search of national scope that included all of the most prominent providers of Home Health Agency Point of Care, Administration, Scheduling and Billing software. Our ‘final four’ included industry mainstays. The final four consisted of: 1. A large, well-known hospital based home care system. 2. A well-known home health platform which also has as an affiliated nationwide home care agency group; and 3. A heretofore-leading web based platform system, which has become a market leader since 2006. (This candidate was our pre-research favorite.) 4. Axxess After participating in demonstrations of features and functions from all the vendors and applying consistent testing based on common criteria involving the top 4, we narrowed our list down to two (eliminating #1 on the criterion of functionality, monthly recurring, and implementation costs). We then conducted a semifinal round, pitting the two browser based systems on a head to head basis- We then applied ourselves to another round of demonstrations, this time pitting #3 vs. Axxess, head to head. The team was utilizing the predetermined criteria to assess the platform’s features and functionality. The implementation went smoothly, with training happening simultaneously. It took just over 60 days. It is easy to use with point and click and usable with tablets, iPads and laptops, as well as desktop Macs and PCs. After the second round, an informal team discussion was held, with all team members present. Because of our commitment to the process we had agreed to follow beforehand, the ultimate choice was put the decision to a vote of the team. The team voted overwhelmingly to choose Axxess, even though, at the outset, the company leadership had actually been leaning towards choosing #3. This choice was a lot more clear-cut than we had anticipated. We consciously chose Axxess over #3, which is a prominent browser based platform, which has been a market leader in the home health industry since 2006. Due to our thorough and deliberate due diligence process, which included in its scope the most prominent vendor platforms in the US Home Health Agency Software Market, we are convinced that Axxess has emerged as the clear market leader. We chose Axxess over the other finalist because it not only is competitively priced, but also reflects a customizable workflow orientation, and is comprehensive in scope. Axxess utilizes the most up to date .Net technology and provides the easiest route to efficiency and productivity through formal, attentive training of all the platforms we examined. An extra bonus is the attitude of Axxess’ trainers and customer support employees towards its customers. The Axxess Team is refreshingly enthusiastic and helpful. The Axxess culture is inviting, and their employees’ attitude towards their clients is encouraging. Axxess is enabling us to increase profitability. The company's 4 licensed agencies migrated to Axxess in September 2011. The migration was conducted over the course of a complete patient episode (60 days) by inputting into Axxess all our recertification patients from our previous platform, which did not have Point of Care functionality. Our CEO commented that this was the smoothest migration between platforms he has ever experienced in his 20+ years of home health agency experience. We are thrilled to be an Axxess client, and among the growing number of Axxess User Community members. Our confidence and efficiency provided by this change has enabled us to move forward in acquiring additional agencies in other regions of Texas, as well as to foster the continued growth of our current patient/client base.

Great for billing and charting transparency

Please build a notes functionality that is reportable for Billing. We would also benefit from a reporting function for the Stick notes AND the Status Names from Activity Logs. Also, please build a CRM that links to the patients, Physicians and Referrals! This will help us keep the tracking of patients or referrals in one place. Keep up the Great Work!

Pros

Simple to use and mostly intuitive. A good tool would be to have a curriculum / test for each module "How to complete and OASIS ' based on their permissions. This shows the Administrator that a new / current employee is competent in completing such a task.....Video, then test, where they need to pass 80%. if not, the employee stays on 'probation'. Of course you can give the administrator to wave the testing and let them 'wing it' at their peril.

Cons

Need deeper reporting functionality that enables the Administrator to understand what steps, employees are delaying the OASIS, RAP and Final process. We need a report that becomes a checklist of steps needed to complete for each patient's claim.....by insurance, by task, tied to the RAP/Final status, tied to an ability to input contact withe the RN's for Tasks and MD's / MD offices for Orders.....i.e., 'Contacted dr Jones 5/4, sent 2nd fax of order 5/27, Office closed for holiday 6/2-9.' Agencies more transparency as to what is holding up a RAP or Final and an ability to simply report this graphically / metrically with team members. Keep up the great work!

We have used Axxess since April, 2015.

Pros

Ease of use for clinicians- have had no complaints. There is a lot of good information availalbe through the on-line support. We have had very infrequent software problems, and when they did occur, they were fixed quickly. The ability to create the careplan as you go through each system is a nice feature. The alert for therapy re-assessments due is helpful. As far as price, Axxess has a nice option to be able to pay per user. Overall, I am very happy with Axxess, and I have used many different home health software companies over the years.

Cons

We would appreciate the ability to create agency-specific documents. There are some very useful reports that could be included- specifically, patients per diagnosis and improve/decline on outcomes with D/C OASIS. There are some places on the OASIS where there are a limited number of characters allowed and/or no comment section (such as GU system). It would be greatly appreciated if Axxess would send notices when there is going to be a software change. The latest change on documenting immunizations is not user-friendly at all, because if you don't know the date of the immunization, you cannot document- it is rare that a patient knows the exact date of their vaccinations. The billers are not happy with this software's ability to manage insurance cases.

Great software for a low price!

Pros

Ease of use! I also like the help tool it is very useful in the orientation of new employees.

Cons

Visit verification does not always work for our clinician. We have a lot of complaints that they are unable to obtain a signature especially on iPhones(and we are now charged for a service that does not always work).

I have had at least 3 occasions where their server was down and we were not able to access patient information. When I called in all they could offer me was to have all charts printed just in case situations like this occurred. I wasn't to pleased with this because if I wanted to have manual charts I would not have computer charting. It has to be a better back up plan or something different they can do to ensure chart access at all times

Our home health agency is based in Dallas, TX. We have served patients in the Dallas metropolitan area for close to 10 years. What makes our organization unique is that we provide services across several programs like Medicare, Medicaid, PHC, CBA, and several other private insurances. We needed software that could help us effectively manage our operations, is easy to use, offered robust functionality, and offered good customer support. We were already using a web-based software that we considered to be the best in the industry. We desired a lot more out of our old system, but realized that there didn't seem to be more the vendor could offer us after repeated requests for new features. We were therefore surprised to learn about Axxess Agencycore software. We were initially skeptical about all the functionalities offered. It sounded too good to be true. After the demos, we decided to give it a try. We did not cancel our subscription with our old vendor because we were not sure how things would turn out. We signed up with Axxess in February 2011, and it is easily one of the smartest things we ever did as an organization. The training, support, and implementation were beyond our expectations. It took us about 60 days to complete a full implementation. The customer support team is very helpful. They are great. It is obvious that their background as a consulting company helps them, as their support staff is really knowledgeable. The software is easy to use; therefore our staff learned it very easily and quickly. The user interface is just pleasant. We can now bill multiple insurance companies electronically with ease. This is something we were unable to do with our previous vendor. Our census has grown by about 35% since we began using Axxess. We are grateful for what Axxess has done for home health. The quality of care we deliver is improved because of all the compliance tools incorporated in the software. Axxess Agencycore has really made a difference for our organization. I encourage other agencies to take a look to determine if it is the right fit for their organization.

Leaves very little to be desired.

From installation to setup to educating our staff on how to use Axxess, and every step in between, Axxess has been wonderful to work with. Like with every software, you'll need to get used to some things, but once you master the system, it's nothing but smooth riding. You can customize everything from notes to pay rate on the different type of visits. Scheduling is a breeze, and billing is exceptional. QA process recently got a wonderful upgrade and has been most helpful. Thank you for creating Axxess.

Pros

It is easy to use. You can open and work on multiple windows at once (unlike others).

Cons

Print cue is complicated. Requires multiple clicks to get where you need to go.

Poor Customer Service for Return Calls

I like the feel and energy of the company.

Pros

Ease of use and features. Weekly training is very useful for new employees. Great support during and after Hour calls upon call in.

Cons

Too many individual report tools that are not integrated. Can't print staff patient load. Schedule list all visits for that staff then you have to go in and delete repeated patients. Horrible customer service when it comes to return phone calls and specific issues with billing. Staff ignore and fail to return calls period. Seems like that the culture of dealing with clients with problems with software. Updates to software with no instructions on changes for new process. Billing insurance companies on Axxess needs work.

Therapy staffing company for Canyon Creek Home Health

Pros

Its easy to use and simple. Some of your webinars are quite useful. Thank you for this.

Cons

1)Why, Why WHY do you send so much marketing information to us?? We like the software fine. We already pay for it. Why do you think you need to sell it even more?
2) THIS: I've been doing some chart reviews and noticed a few things from my PT's notes.
Daily note issues:

No place to add narrative under Homebound Status. Several of our companies have had audits and been dinged for this when clinicians aren't adding at least two reasons for HB status. One should based on the disease process and the other on a functional deficit that makes them homebound. The explicit instruction from the Home Health section of the APTA is to include items such as dependence on caregivers for management of assistive devices, supervision due to cognitive issues, etc. I would like to coach my clinicians to add this somewhere in the narrative or to ask Axxess to allow this. Any suggestions?
How are other clinicians addressing the goals in their notes? While there is a 'progress made towards goals' section, I wasn't able to get the goals to copy and past into the narrative of my notes.
No section to document coordination of care between disciplines, family, MD or ALF staff. I added this to the narrative but it would be great to cue the clinicians for this.
Discharge summary:

This is a light functional eval but without a treatment note, space for vitals, etc. Is there supposed to be a daily note attached to it?
No way to compare progress since admit or towards goals.
No place to document coordination of care for d/c planning - I added this to the narrative
No cueing for discharge instructions to patient.

Here is a response with tips from another admin here in the valley who uses this system:
- Home Bound Status: it will flow over from the nursing assessment and must be modified there. This can be accomplished through staff training as well as quality assurance activities when processing the 485.
-Goals can be copied and pasted from the therapy assessment. Go to the patient's chart, then the printer at the right of the assessment, then copy and paste onto your note. It will be on everynote there forward so long as you select the "copy previous note" from the upper right hand section of your note.
-Communication comes through the communication tab in the patient's chart. You can select who you want to be included. This proves communication between disciplines. It goes out as secure emails to each person you select. I love this communication.
- When you select the "view previous note" it will pull over the note you select so you can compare progress.
- Yes, there is a discharge note per discipline, or you can use a regular therapy note.
-Discharge instructions to the patient are on the discharge or transfer summary. You can build templates to drop down frequently used verbiage or use the templates already loaded. I don't like the templates - too wordy.
