Business applications for Assisted Living Facilities are very similar to applications designed for Long-Term Care Nursing Homes but there are differences between them and it can be difficult to identify these gaps without a detailed analysis.
Senior managers and executives need to pay careful attention to the back-office financials as many of the applications designed for assisted living facilities have no formal accounting modules and those that do have some functionality in this area are typically very weak.
You may find that your best bet is to pick the best Assisted Living Facility software and integrate it with a modern accounting system like Sage Intacct. This is very easy when you pick the right technology partner and we would be happy to assist you in this process if you’re tired of just making do with a basic accounting system.
The top three highest rated Assisted Living applications according to Capterra.com are ALIS by Medtelligent, Tabula Pro by Senior Living Software, and AL Advantage. The most popular (based on number of reviews) are (again) ALIS and Tabula Pro as well as InTouchLink, eResidentCare, and Senior Insight. A few additional products that you may want to consider are PointClickCare, Advantage Anywhere, AL Advantage, ECP, Medisoft by Emergys, and MatrixCare.
Functionality will vary widely between these applications but should generally include accounting (or integration to popular accounting products like Intuit QuickBooks); dashboards with reports and alerts; resident profiles and contact details; medication management and medical history; document management, billing, clinical care and service plans; staff scheduling and management, marketing and sales; incident reporting and risk management; activity calendars; facility management; and more.
