  • Advanced Home Care Sees $900,000 in Labor and Timing Savings with Kronos for Healthcare

    Advanced Home Care's previous workforce management system and processes were not working, nor was it allowing optimized use of the McKesson Homecare™ solution. Following a patient home visit, employees logged onto a laptop to enter their hours and select a billing code in McKesson. Some clinicians waited until the night before payroll closed to enter 2 weeks of their time and activities. Faulty memories and code misinterpretation led to a 30% error rate. Automating payroll and adding performance management capabilities within its existing system would have been too costly. Using the Kronos solution integrated with McKesson, Advanced Home Care has virtually eliminated paycheck corrections — reducing its compliance risk and increasing productivity — and saves more than $900,000 annually in labor and time.
