Excellent program from an excellent company

2017-06-08

I recommend Alora.

Pros

We use it for all functions related to the business including scheduling, HIPAA compliant patient and caregiver information storage, administrative level tracking of employees via a convenient telephony system, and company financial electronic paper trails.

Cons

The customer service department is not always easy to reach but when you get someone on the phone, or someone calls you back, you feel like you are very special to them.

Alora Plus still has a few minuses

2018-01-25

Limited number of electronic fax pages that can be sent on a monthly basis (100), is not good for larger companies trying to be paperless.

Pros

The dashboard is quite comprehensive.

Cons

While the 485 is created based off the completed Oasis assessment, it is not generated automatically, so you have to go back and manually click through to complete the 485 and fax out.

New to Alora 2016

2017-05-24

Alora has great training for our company. It does take time to get everyone one on board. Once the confusion is over everything runs great.

Pros

All clients charts are easy to read or find something in the chart. I like how you can give each person as much or as little access to Alora.

Cons

A few customer Support members are not trained as well as others. When I get that person I'll hang up and call back, to get another team member. Don't like it take 4 hrs to get old logs due to if an attorney needs the ppr work that's to long.

Alora is non-interactive

2016-02-16

Pros

We do not like this product at all. We do not feel that the program is intuitive. Support is poor and not timely.

Cons

The product is set up by task, instead of set up by client chart. The point of care tablet use is frustrating and time consuming.

Alora Plus is Alora Unlimited

2019-07-03

Pros

I used Alora’s very effective Classic platform for over seven years at another job, but when I opened my own Medical Claims Billing company, I acquired a client using Alora Plus, which is their powerful web browser based platform.

Cons

There are no cons with Alora. Period. In fact, I think people should be paying them MORE money to utilize their software.

We love it. We're glad we switched while we were small because switching now would be a ton of work.

We initially looked into Alora so we could switch from paper charting to computer charting.

A Great System Overall - May Lack Specificity for Some Applications.

2019-04-02

The lack of specificity in the forms meant a lot of extra work on our end, to create many of the documents that we regularly use for Medicaid authorization renewals.

Pros

My favorite component of the system is one that is often underrated, the dashboard. The dashboard is not only visually appealing, but well organized with lots of helpful information at a glance.

Cons

The downside to the flexibility of the forms is that it lacks specificity. This means that, out of the box, you will have more work to do in setting up your forms than other EMR systems. It take s a while to customize many of these forms which takes time and effort away from the daily business.

Payment summary issue

2016-03-10

Pros

Very helpful and work to get issues resolved. Everyone is quite professional and personal at the same time.

Cons

The system has glitches in it making my job more difficult to work around the issues ie; there is still not a fix in Alora for the same billing code, same date with different shifts to populate on a single line item on the claim. This causes the claim when submitted electronically to see the second line item as a duplicate entry and does not pay causing me to change it in the other online system.

Your software needs to integrate employee times so different shifts show on the same line item in the claim.

Director of Business Development and Clinical Services

2017-01-31

We recently decided to go with Alora and so far it's impressive. I would say it is very user-friendly and offers so much more than others. We spent several months looking for several software companies and all options and Alora was among the top that was a complete system. One other company that is very well known actually had fewer features and way more money. For homecare, this is by far the best choice.

Pros

Great for billing, payroll, and scheduling.

Cons

It would be nice to have an interface with EPIC, PCC, and others or be familiar to those that use those systems.

Alora - An Industry Leader

2017-06-08

Please use Alora. Your business will thank you.

Pros

All patient and caregiver related information is stored on its remote servers and all scheduling is done on its convenient, user-friendly Scheduler Calendar. I can not imagine working in the Home Health Care industry without Alora and its dedicated Customer Service staff at my side.

Cons

When I first joined the company, the interface was a bit dull in an aesthetic sense.
