Exploring FAMCares Billing & Cost Tracking Module

Posted by Kim Hickman on Sep 8, 2020 2:15:22 PM

One of FAMCare's major advantages is our configurable billing module and tools.  We want to help our clients take the 'complicated' out of billing.  We understand that accurate billing and cost tracking is critical to the running of your agency.  Different clients have different needs.   Fee for Service, Census, Foster Care, mixed funding sources, grants, Medicaid 837/835, and other electronic submission or cost tracking services are all possible. FAMCare’s Cost Tracking & Billing Module can be configured to automate many functions so billing is faster, more accurate and consistent.

Enjoy this short video overview on how FAMCare's billing module works regarding fee for service.

High Level Tech for High Standards of Care

Posted by GVT Admin on Aug 18, 2020 9:30:00 AM



Great responsibility yields great reward.  This is especially true of SARCOA (Southern Alabama Regional Council on Aging), the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) serving senior citizens of Barbour, Coffee, Covington, Dale, Geneva, Henry, and Houston counties of southeast Alabama.  By continuously seeking ways to better serve the rapidly growing senior population through planning, coordinating, and developing community levels of service, SARCOA is able to make a huge difference as one of 13 AAA’s in Alabama, and one of more than 650 AAA’s in the nation


"Our experiences working with the Global Vision Technologies family have been very positive.”


In addition to assisting the senior population as an Area Agency on Aging, SARCOA is also an Aging and Disabilities Resource Center (ADRC). Launched in 2003 and designed to be a “one-stop-shop” for individuals of any age seeking long-term support services, the ADRC works to streamline access to assistance services, programs, and information for older adults and all persons with disabilities, family caregivers, veterans, and long-term support service providers. The overall goal of the ADRC program is to empower individuals to effectively navigate their health and other long-term support options.

To accomplish these goals, SARCOA chose FAMCare as their platform, data warehouse, and primary tool for our Medicaid Waiver programs; as well as their system of record in support of activities related to Case Management and Care Coordination activities. After researching various SaaS platforms available to social services agencies, they believed FAMCare was the most cost effective, expandable, most agile solution to our needs.

             

“While cost is not always the primary driver, SARCOA is extremely focused on value. Other SaaS solutions came at a much higher cost; and while some offered what they describe as “off the shelf” functionality, we feel our experiences working with the Global Vision Technologies family have been very positive,” stated Joe Strickland, Director of Home and Community Services.

Why Streamlining is the Key to Efficiency in Case Management

Posted by GVT Admin on Jun 30, 2020 5:00:00 PM

Sometimes grassroots efforts are great, and sometimes the grass needs to be mowed!  This is the case for the Randolph County Dept. of Social Services (RCDSS), an agency that provides residents of Randolph County, NC with access to programs that promote economic independence and family stability. Specifically, services are meant to assist families and individuals to live in safe environments and remain self-sufficient.

Randolph County’s business is not unlike many of the other clients served by FAMCare. The department’s home-grown system of PDFs and clustered data simply was not working anymore. Although robust records were kept over the years, the department soon found itself needing increased efficiency with better reporting capabilities.

The 3 Most Important Features for Your Next Case Management System

Posted by George Ritacco on Dec 15, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Looking for the right case management software can be a challenge for anyone in the nonprofit sector. After all, there are so many choices and few that actually address the needs of a human services agency at a price that is affordable. When looking, it is tempting to simply look at the price tag first and then see what the software can accomplish. "What can I get for the money...?" while an important question is probably not the most important... at least when starting off.
