(NewsUSA) - Home health care is an essential part of the nation's health care system.

Rapid advances in technology and new ways health care is provided to patients have created new opportunities to receive care at home. The health care community is constantly evolving and understanding that not only does home health care reduce the overall cost of treatment, it also improves the quality of life of patients and their families. In fact, a recent study by the U.S. Government Accountability Office revealed that people receiving home care tend to live longer and have a better quality of life.

Home health care providers include medical professionals like physicians, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists, as well as medical social services providers and skilled home health aides. It's the best way to ensure ill, elderly or disabled people receive high-quality health care in the privacy and comfort of their own homes. In addition, home health nurses serve as the eyes and ears of physicians, keeping them up-to-date on recovery and alerting them to potential health concerns.

As home health agencies coordinate a plan of care with your physician, there are dozens of administrative and operational tasks that go on "behind the scenes" concerning scheduling and planning patient care. That's where companies, like Axxess, a technology company that integrates home health care software to promote quality health care services, come in.

The Axxess software is a complete, end-to-end solution for home health care agencies to manage and efficiently run their businesses. It allows an agency to deliver the best tools possible to their health care providers for excellence in patient care.

Axxess puts all care and administrative aspects of a home health care agency at the fingertips of managers and providers: care plans, patient data, medication management, assessments, clinical progress notes, scheduling and billing. This type of software is user-friendly, cost-effective and secure and with ongoing customer training and support available at no additional cost, Axxess has quickly become the industry's fastest-growing home health software.

Axxess is committed to advancing the technology of health care. For home health providers who use their mobile device, Axxess has a free mobile app. Axxess clients can download the app for free and get driving directions to patient's homes, see their daily schedule at a glance and keep in touch with agencies for real-time patient care and collaboration.
