Higher occupancy rates

75% of families spend over 30 hours of research before deciding on a facility.

If a 100 bed home has an occupancy rate of 75%, this could easily improve by 10% or more if the home has excellent safety and few audit discrepancies. If the average annual revenue per resident is $40,000 and the average profitability is 5%, then that would be an annual boost of $16,000.

Medication Related Fines Reduced

Legislators at all levels are talking about raising maximum fines

Legislators at all levels are talking about raising the maximum fines, now usually $10,000—to $25,000 for a “serious deficiency” and to $100,000 for one that resulted in a patient’s death.

Lawsuit avoidance

Defending just one lawsuit can cause your insurance premiums to skyrocket

The most common of medical errors are the most preventable using our system;

  • a medication due to improper information such as allergies, etc.
  • Lack of up to date warning or miscommunication due to poor handwriting.
  • Confusion among drugs with similar names or dosage.
  • Administering medication to the wrong resident.

Insurance Premium Reduction

Homes that have processes for avoiding risk can easily enjoy savings of 10% or more.

A 100 bed home that pays $250 per bed in insurance could save $2,500/year.

Staff are Used More Efficiently

No longer need to dig through binders of paperwork to find information, or wade through illegible documents to try and figure out if a resident has had all their medications.

For example, a 100 bed facility has the following pass times:

  • 8:00am (1,000 meds to pass) – 5 man-hours
  • 12:00pm (100 meds to pass) - 1 man-hours
  • 4:00pm (100 meds to pass) - 1 man-hours
  • 8:00pm (800 meds to pass) - 4 man-hours
Using ChartMeds, the pass can be reduced by about 30%, which would reduce the man hours from 11 to about 9 (730 hours per year reduction). If each technician has a total burden of $25/hr, that would be a savings of about $18,250/year. If your facility averages 2 hours per day of phone time with the pharmacy that can be reduced to less than 1 hour per day (365 hours per year), or $9,125/year. *New York Times, Sept 23, 2007
