Baltimore, MD: Ankota looks forward to exhibiting solutions that improve the quality and efficiency of the delivery of home care at the NAHC 16th Annual Financial Management Conference and Exposition (HHFMA meeting).  The meeting will be held from Julty 14th through the 16th at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers in Chicago IL.

While the mainstay educational topics of accounting, collections, and cost reporting are still prevalent at the conference, there is a growing interest among financial managers on how to improve the efficiency of care delivery, and Ankota is excited to share our solutions.  Some of the improvements that agencies can make with the assistance of Ankota’s technology are as follows:

  • Reduce the time that caregivers spend on scheduling, determining where to go, and driving, allowing more time with patients.
  • Coordinate episodes of care so that all services are provided and billed, and no equipment is left behind
  • Communicate proactively with Family Members to improve relationships and cut down on “phone tag”
  • Track care delivery for paraprofessionals via telephony and smart phone applications to reduce paperwork while increasing compliance and reporting

Ankota made its public debut at the NAHC 15th Annual Financial Managers Conference in Boston last July and has since grown rapidly. “This is a celebration of our 1st birthday,” explained Ankota CEO Will Hicklen, “We’re so pleased with the welcome we’ve received by the home care community and look forward to helping the industry thrive.  Our focus on improving the quality and efficiency of care delivery continues to make us unique among software providers, but as the word spreads, so does the value we deliver."
