SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) October 17, 2017
Today, Boomr has announced “Boomr for Healthcare,” an essential add-on to its mobile time-tracking platform for private duty home care companies and Medicare-certified home health or hospice agencies. This upgrade was designed specifically to overcome unique challenges encountered when tracking the hours of distributed staff members, and it offers a variety of advanced features all for the pricing structure of the core Boomr product. Employers not only receive the tools they need to stay compliant with state and federal laws related to overtime tracking, but they also can manage time more effectively among employees with per visit and per diem pay classifications.
Since the “Boomr for Healthcare” Beta was launched in August, dozens of home health agencies have already signed up to use this platform. Companies range from those with just small groups of clinicians to those with over a thousand employees.
Boomr’s new level of functionality is now seamlessly integrated into its core product for healthcare organizations. These powerful additional features are available to both new and existing customers. In addition to serving core time tracking needs, Boomr’s time-tracking tools are extremely easy to use, and functionality can be installed in seconds with just one click.
In addition to its products for home care, Boomr also serves a wide variety of other industries including design, marketing and sales, accounting, landscaping, legal, construction, property management, and the restaurant industry, to name a few. CEO and Cofounder Matt Bowersox noted, “Even though we have customers in a wide range of industries, we noticed the home health, hospice, and home care segment of the healthcare industry faced substantial issues that were being overlooked. Most time-tracking solutions are designed for hourly employees. As a result, situations unique to the home health care world such as pay per visit, piece rate, and per diem pay were not being addressed.”
In seeking to address underserved needs of the in-home healthcare community, the Boomr team listened closely to customer feedback and discovered a pattern. It became clear that many companies were having trouble keeping track of what they were spending on employee overtime hours and calculating regular wages due to the fact that visits tend to have different pay rates based on aspects such as the frequency and type of care.
Boomr’s new tracking features ensure employee compensation and notify employers if they are exceeding overtime thresholds. Clients can set overtime limits, and then everyone is notified when these limits are being approached. Home health care workers can easily review their shifts and stay organized, and employers can better grasp the data surrounding the activities of their workforce.
“Now our home health care clients have easy access to the data they need to make more informed operating decisions,” added Bowersox. “We’re excited to offer a workable solution to this previously underserved portion of the industry.”
Created in 2013, Boomr is revolutionizing the way people spend their time at work. To date, thousands of customers use its products to automate their workforces. Both employers and employees rely on Boomr technology and tools to document their work activities in real time. Through Boomr, companies improve their workforce management and are empowered to make better informed operating decisions. Learn more by visiting https://www.boomr.com.
