Dealing with more than 500 home health aides on a daily bases, I needed a dependable home health software that I could use and trust. Carecenta has given me that. Carecenta has built in compliance checkpoints that makes it simple to stay in full compliance with the government.
The maps integrated feature with real time data lets me view the location of my HHA’s. I can see instant authorization and notifications with Carecenta software. These features have increased my home health company’s efficiency. I’m really happy we finally switch to Carecenta.
I didn't like the wait for the demo. I hate to wait a few days instead of instant.
Have the sales staff give you a tour to see all the features.

Carecenta has made EVV simple for my home healthcare agency. Now we can make sure that our HHA’s arrive at the correct location and that each patience receives the correct care based on their MD form.

The demo took some time to complete, but other then that nothing crosses my mind.
I recommend making the switch to Carecenta, its worth it.

The possibilities of what the software can provide to home healthcare agencies.
The look and ease of the display of information makes the product somewhat easy to use.
Just be sure the functionality matches your particular agencies needs.
Molly from HIG Home Group
Specialty: Home Health Care
For almost 10 years, my company was using another software system that was costing us time and money because it could not meet our needs in nursing support for home care service. When we finally started using Carecenta, we were very impressed with its performance track record and rich functionality. It almost too good to be true - we save so much time on work tasks, it's incredible.
Carecenta is very easy to use, and as a result, It took less than two hours to train our entire staff. It is the most advanced and powerful management and financial software for the home care industry.
I feel I could use a little more training than the 2 days Carecenta staff provided. There are some smart functions that are not obvious at the beginning and take a bit more time to get familiar with. I would recommend taking at least 4 session of training.
During the transfer, our primary concern was data loss. That concern proved to be a non-issue because Carecenta developers have everything secured. Amazingly enough, the transfer only took one day.
Tural from Home Family Care, Inc.
Specialty: Home Health Care
My professional experience as a case coordinator spans more than 12 years. At times, it seem almost impossible that I've been in this industry for so long. I think that may be because I'm so dedicated to my work. Helping to turn lives around gives me tremendous satisfaction and a great sense of personal accomplishment. I am quite familiar with most of the home care industry management software, because software is an integral part of my everyday work. It was a big plus when I discovered Carecenta, because the software makes my life so much easier.
To give you some examples, authorizations and employee compliance are very high priority with me when it comes to scheduling an open case. Carecenta provides unique features that track authorization, allow me to instantly communicate with multiple HHAs in seconds via text right from the software, include electronic visit verification tracking, and full compliance.
Carecenta constantly improves and upgrades its features. Just last week they’ve improved their visual HHA availability search on the map. Now I can mass-text or mass-email to all aids in the vicinity of my patient using a private text number and get their responses back on my own cell, and even send message back to them without revealing my own cell number, through Carecenta. All messages are also stored in employee record. Awesome!
The only downside I can think of is that Carecenta doesn't go far enough in covering medical and skilled nursing services. It does have medication tracking and nursing fillable forms, however I would recommend adding OASIS functionality, although this wouldn't be necessary for my company, since we are not billing for any of the nursing services.
To help you evaluate the home care soft and to address the previous review, I think you might benefit a lot and do more with Carecenta by not skipping training and dedicating some real time and effort to it.

Another plus is that it's really fun to work with this incredible cloud-based software. I can check on schedules from anywhere from home, or even in transit, solve any problems, find a replacement, etc. Carecenta constantly improves and upgrades its features. Just last week they¿ve improved their visual HHA availability search on the map. I can see the differences in rates right there and mass-text or mass-email to all aids in the vicinity of my patient using a private text number and get their responses back on my own cell.
We have few hundred patients. We've tried HHA Exchange and ClearCare. The cost with them was beyond what we could afford. Carecenta on the other hand provides more services for less. For instance, we can bill Medicaid directly, which is not available through ClearCare. And, overall, it's much more user-friendly, easy to use and has more services. I like they've added skilled services now, which is also not available thu ClearCare, and much easier to use than the HHA Exchange.
We chose Carecenta because we needed an integrated scheduling, billing and payroll software, and then found that Carecenta enables us to be in compliance with state and federal licensing regulations with our employees as well. We then discovered that Carecenta has a map-based caregiver search feature. I couldn’t believe it. We actually have a system that makes our agency unstoppable.
While on boarding is always difficult and overwhelming when switching providers, the customer service representative was immensely helpful.
When we experienced any bumps in the road, as any agency does, the customer service team has always been prompt to answer questions, research any issues or special requests that we might have.
Overall, it's a great software and Carecenta people were very helpful to ensure that we have a smooth experience, which is so important when you provide services.
Being that my agency covers a seven state region, we work with many different insurance companies, so initially we had a lot of trouble finding a home health software that could handle our insurance and reporting requirements.
The layout of Carecenta was so smooth and easy to follow. Everything we needed was right there. As Carecenta’s sales agent progressed with his demo I was more and more impressed. Everything was easier than the other system we were using. When he showed me their scheduling, I was sold. I never in my 12 years of running an agency have I ever encountered a software that is this efficient.
I can now stay in full compliance with the government in every state we cover by using Carecenta. Carecenta home care software has really made my agency more profitable.
Carecenta seems very simple to use, however, you still need training. They provide it as part of setup but you have to pay for it.
Make sure all your employees devoted at least 4 hours to the training. I didn't and spent a lot of time afterwards.
By using Carecenta I am able to see authorization for patience care faster. I am notified if there are any problems with compliance applying to any of my HHA’s and can quickly navigate to anther HHA to send out to the patience. The cloud based system allows me to view my HHA’s schedule from anywhere. Plan of care is now manageable because of Carecenta software. As long as I have internet access I can check to see that my HHA’s have completed all daily tasks. This insures me success for my agency.
This is really helpful.
Many hours of manual management were saved and redirected to growing our business. Our Carecenta WOW moment was in the first month of use. We quickly realized that our accuracy increased and our efficiency went up by 100%.
Carecenta is probably more sophisticated that we would need since we don't use all the skilled nursing part.
Katlin from Penn Adult Day Care
We run adult daycare facility and Carecenta is doing everything for us: scheduling, projecting meals, transportation, sign-in automation, electronic and paper billing and reporting.
Responsive support and customer service that makes updates and listens to feedback. Very good Help Desk documentation.
The dashboard with projected attendance and sign-in is very helpful. Great customer service that is there all the time and helps quickly resolve issues.
Top of the line technology. Seamless transitions between scheduling and billing. It talks minutes to do the entire week of billing for all 210 patients we have.
It¿s a loud-based software so I work on things from anywhere, office, home or on-the-go.
Daniel from Home Health And Holistic Care
We are a home health care agency that was doing everything manually. We did all of our billing, payroll, scheduling and reports, and it was always a mess. We lost tons of money each year, and didn¿t feel comfortable using certain software programs.
Carecenta came across and in a search. We called the customer service, did the demo and were sold on it! The automated HR, payroll and billing feature really helped us get our agency back on track and stay there. Appointment validation has helped everyone, and we can now have better results with scheduling. E-billing and e-remittances has really helped us with time, and also with going green. This software for home healthcare has really paid off.

Megan from Home Famiy Care
By using Carecenta I am able to see authorization for patience care faster! I am notified if there are any problems with compliance applying to any of my HHA¿s and can quickly navigate to another HHA to send out to the patience.
Carecenta's cloud based system allows me to view my HHA¿s schedule from anywhere. By dialing in with the patience¿s phone, I can see what time my home health aide clocked in and what time they clocked out. I can even see what time each service task was completed. Plan of care is now more manageable because of Carecenta software!
Kevin from Home Health
I have been using Carecenta now for two years, I normally don¿t write reviews but Carecenta is simply the best software out there. The software has specific features for authorizations and employee compliance which makes scheduling an opened case easy.
It also gives me everything I need to stay in full compliance with the government. The system allows me to check schedules anywhere, even from my home. This software has helped me and I¿m positive it will do the same for you.
Mary Beth from Independent You, LLC
After struggling along with the product for several months, we discontinued using the product. We were never able to pull one reliable report from the software. We found numerous programing problems with the software. Tech support seem to be only one person.
