CHELMSFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Advanced Home Care, a nonprofit hospital-affiliated company offering
full-service healthcare, implemented workforce management solutions from Kronos
Incorporated to streamline processes across 30 locations, which
resulted in an annual time and labor savings of $900,000.
Prior to selecting Kronos, Advanced Home Care’s existing workforce
management solution did not have the capabilities necessary to achieve
complete automation and standardization across all locations. The
healthcare organization selected time and attendance, HR, payroll, and
mobile applications from Kronos to control costs and reduce
inaccuracies and compliance risks associated with manual payroll
Before Kronos, Advanced Home Care’s field-based employees logged
time-worked data and billing codes up to two weeks after visits to
patients. Inconsistent billing codes and human error resulted in
paycheck inaccuracies. With the Kronos solution, Advanced Home Care is
able to map the payroll codes from its billing system to the new
payroll system, which has reduced paycheck inaccuracies and minimized
With the automated solution, Kronos has also helped Advanced Home Care
increase productivity as managers have reduced time spent on
reconciling timecards from eight to three hours every biweekly pay
Advanced Home Care selected mobile applications from Kronos, which,
once implemented, will enable field-based employees – including
patient service technicians and home health aides – to track time,
request time off, and punch in and out at any time, from anywhere.
For added innovation, the healthcare organization also purchased Kronos® InTouch® time
clocks with biometrics to provide employees more control over their
time, enabling them to easily check accrual balances, request time
off, and view schedules – all in real time.
