MedTrade prides itself on “Connecting the HME Industry.”  Their conference, entitled THE NATIONAL HOME HEALTH CARE EXPOSITION TM continues to be the leader in serving the home health care marketplace by providing a forum to bring buyers and sellers together while offering educational development programs.

“Ankota’s solution is exactly what the HME industry needs at this time,” explained Ankota CEO Will Hicklen.  “Ankota offsets the extreme reimbursement pressure DME companies are facing by giving them the tools to increase their delivery capacity without increasing cost.”  Ankota’s software solution achieves this by providing delivery schedule optimization that saves the agency money in five different ways:

  • Assignments and routes are automatically calculated, saving each driver 45 minutes or more per day
  • Delivery routes are optimized, reducing driving miles, driving time, fuel costs and vehicle costs
  • Real-time changes to schedules can be accommodates with a drag-and-drop interface and simple tools to deal with emergency deliveries throughout the day.
  • Status is tracked in real-time, allowing back office workers to manage by exception rather than needing to follow-up on each delivery.  Ultimately this enables each back office worker to manage more field resources and can enable the agency to increase territories or product lines
  • The hosted solution with a growing number of automated integrations to inventory and billing systems eliminates the need for ongoing IT staff support
