Home Care SoftwareHome Care Software should empower home care agencies to improve their care quality, whilst saving time. At CarePlanner, we have worked closely with home care managers and care workers to understand exactly how this should be done. As a result, we believe we have built the best home care software available today. What does Home Care Software need to do? Home care software needs to support both care managers and care workers. These roles are very different, the main requirements are listed below. If you have a specific need, which isn’t mentioned below, feel free to contact our sales team directly and discuss your needs.

One Solution for all your Home Care needs
CarePlanner covers all of the above requirements and far more. With a centralised schedule of all appointments and carers, new appointments can be scheduled to the most appropriate carer with ease. Because CarePlanner holds information about each care worker’s skills and certifications, you can quickly see who is available to meet the appointment time and skills/certification requirements. Training requirements and holiday bookings can be scheduled in the same system, keeping everything in one place and removing the risk of conflicting bookings.
Generating invoices from the same system in which the appointments are scheduled and tracked removes human error – enabling exact calculations of appointment timings and even travel costs. Similarly, timesheets can be easily generated for each care worker, including allowance for training, holidays and travel. These can flow automatically into payroll via the same system, or into Sage Line 50 or other accounting systems via one of our integrations. CarePlanner becomes the central, easy-to-use system for each aspect of your home care management.
At CarePlanner we make sure that the set up of your home care software is painless and fast. We arrange free training for users within days of requesting a license and can help you to integrate with CM2000 (if you are required to use this), Sage Line 50 and other accounting systems as part of the setup process.
Additionally, we provide assistance to transfer over existing appointments, carers and other details from your old system. Visit our getting started page for more information about how we help you get up and running quickly.
