AL Advantage overview

AL Advantage is a HIPAA-compliant, cloud-hosted assisted living management platform, created by senior healthcare experts, and designed to save time by allowing resident care data to automatically flow through the platform, updating key fields in related modules, forms and reports immediately. The web-based software can be accessed from any internet-enabled device at any time.

AL Advantage provides users with the tools required to manage resident care, including assessments, service plans, charting, incident reporting, and medication administration. Administrative tasks, such as managing levels of care, reporting and state compliance are simplified. Standardized wording within appropriate forms streamline assessments and service care plans. Customizable care levels, based on the needs of the resident, produce more accurate resident billing, Billing departments are notified automatically by email of any care level changes for real-time accurate invoicing.

Built-in incident reporting and tracking, plus state-specific features allow users to meet the regulatory requirements for any state. Automated processes free up caregivers to focus more on residents’ needs instead of piles of paperwork, with the aim of improving patient care and reducing caregiver stress and turn-over. Estimates of care staffing time by care level also allow for more accurate scheduling of required staff, and promotes optimum care coverage every day.

We've been with the company from the beginning and have seen positive, but slow, progress. We use it mainly for MARs and Facesheets. It's too clunky and not user friendly enough at this point to use on tablets. As stated above the customer service is awesome!I love that it's built specifically for the industry. Face-sheets and MARs are equipped with the exact information needed. Customer support is on top of things, very quick to resolve issues and respond.

As an experienced nurse consultant in the assisted living industry, I have had exposure to multiple electronic documentation programs and I am always delighted and relieved when I have the opportunity to support companies and communities that utilize AL Advantage! The owners of AL Advantage, support personnel, and the actual program all live up to their claims: it is extremely easy to use, it transfers information to various documents thus reducing wasted time individually creating related documents, creates intelligible reports, the program can easily support state specific idiosyncrasies related to documentation requirements. Unlike many other programs, AL Advantage does not require extensive time to create specific drop-down boxes. A variety of options are already assembled in the drop-down boxes, yet the user also has the option of entering free-text entries as well. And if there is ever a question or a need? One simple call or email is usually all it takes to achieve near immediate resolution from well-qualified and professional support personnel! Thank you, AL Advantage, for making my job so much easier and more enjoyable with your program! Like most? That's a tough question! Maybe that I can quickly and easily assemble an assessment with the LOC and service plan information being transferred within the program when I have a last minute admission, but that I can also re-enter and "beef up" the entries at a later date because of the free-text option. Being able to toggle to various sections of the program within a resident without having to reselect the resident for each section. And how the information transfers from one section to another and populates lists without having to re-enter the information multiple times. Shall I keep going?

Having our resident's information stored and backed up on the servers is probably the best advantage of using the software. Having the ability to access the information remotely from any computer is the second best feature. No more running around trying to find a resident's file that someone else is using has streamlined our work day. Multiple users can access the program at the same time. Printing out files for the staff or our family members is a breeze. Having the service plans and resident information at my finger tips. Having everything centrally stored in one place and have access to the information from any computer is priceless.

When system is slow, i would reach out to rep and he's always always ready to help me, remotely guide me with the concerns. Rep is very attentive and follows through! He would let me know if it's a system update that is causing the hour glass to keep going; or if it's my wrong doing :-) He would make suggestions on what i should do when i am logged in to aladvantage so that i can work efficiently.ALadvantage has easy navigation from one tab to another. I would say that it should be stressed to customers TO ALWAYS SAVED CURRENT ASSESSMENT TO HISTORY otherwise you will lose and it will look like you didn't do it :-(

It helps with communication among all staff in the Assisted Living department. However, we experience that's it's also down for maintenance during business hours and for this reason we are not always able to save our charting after typing it in. It would be helpful to have prior communication about this, as we can avoid charting during those times. -User friendly. -Easy to use -Great customer support -Great online tutorial
