It’s no secret that the home healthcare industry is undoubtedly undergoing significant changes. Even though this heavily regulated industry has sometimes been slow to adopt new strategies and technologies, the need for efficient home-based healthcare and the constantly changing Medicare and Medicaid laws is transforming the entire sector. As the demand for home healthcare gains unprecedented momentum, healthcare agencies are struggling to keep up with the administrative challenges— from charting to billing and payroll. What then becomes critical for these agencies is to have a solution that would help them simplify and automate the administrative processes seamlessly with their operations.
GeoH has the answer. With its easy-to-use home healthcare mobile app, GeoH’s solution addresses the “administrative nightmares” of agency owners and administrators regarding manual data entry, charting correctness and reconciliation of notes, payroll export including time and attendance, and managing billable hours including forecasting out what is currently scheduled versus allowed and utilized. “We have a home care agency, so we understand the struggles of the day to day operations. With leading-edge technology, we have built a software that’s mobile-first, easy-touse, and functions the way an agency does” asserts Douglas Rowe, Principle Co-founder of GeoH. “We aim to take away the administrative struggles and compliance worries of agencies. This will enable them to focus on patient care and business productivity, which makes for running a better agency.”
GeoH’s effective scheduling, tracking, and auditing for home care organizations, by streamlining the management and on-boarding of caregivers and patients, allows a company to reduce the overhead associated with those tasks and risk of compliance violations. Explaining about the user interface of the mobile app, Dylan Vester, Co-founder/VP of Product Development of GeoH, states, “From an agency owner and administrator perspective, the ease-of-use and intuitive UI ensures effective use and productivity gains. We have built features that alert the user to conflicts and errors that have in the past gone unnoticed in other software.”
With GeoH’s, agency administrators can manage all their caregivers, clients, and care services with a simple click of a button both mobile and on the web. The innovative home healthcare application has a patient assessment function for new/re-admit patients and makes scheduling new appointments or managing current visits quite seamless.

In today’s age of ever-changing regulations, managing payroll and billing is always a time consuming process for agencies. GeoH takes away this pain point by streamlining the accounting processes and allowing agencies to download all caregiver hours for payroll, while cumulating and separating out all patient hours for billing. The company has a channel partnership with one of the largest payroll providers in the country through which it aims to cut down payroll processing times for agencies further.

In addition to providing Electronic Visit Verification and the caregiver notes, for a real-time viewpoint of a patient visit as it occurs, as well and proof of care. The company offers caregivers unique logins within its software, which displays their schedule and service assignments from the administrator. This one touch access removes the trouble of informing caregivers of their schedule, as well as makes real time changes when caregivers switch shifts or cannot cover a visit. GeoH’s interface also helps assist with schedule coverage as it lists those with ability to work at the needed time.
The company has been gaining massive traction in the industry, owing to its innovative mobile healthcare application. GeoH’s mission is to make agency administrative processes easier and efficient while simultaneously maintaining user adoption and compliance. Aside from direct agency usage, GeoH has begun to work with a multitude of states to become their respective EVV provider to include functioning as their aggregator. Having grown by word of mouth and client referrals, GeoH has currently expanded into 20 states as of this writing. With a team of HIPAA-certified developers and sales experts, the company thrives on redefining the home healthcare agency administration. “Through agile processes, we are constantly updating and adding new features to our software to ensure in-home healthcare becomes easier. We have also partnered with various governing bodies to make sure agencies would be compliant with the upcoming 2020 Electronic Visit Verification (E.V.V.) requirements,” concludes Rowe.
