AL Advantage

Assisted Living Software for just 23¢ Resident/ Day !

About AL Advantage

AL Advantage focuses on reducing senior caregiver's on-the-job stress levels. Our care software is best known as the "easiest to use" senior care management software available. This care software is designed BY veteran caregivers FOR caregivers!

There is no other senior care software that is more cost efficient for less of a purchase commitment. For just 23¢ per resident / day, all State-Specific reporting compliance and required care management tasks are tracked for resident's (IL) (AL) or (MC) levels of care. There are NO setup $ fees and NO training $fees. Our software agreement has a 30 day exit with NO cancellation $ fees. Our software support is legendary with around-the-clock availability.

Our web-based accessed software can be viewed on laptops, handheld's and phones.

AL Advantage provides users with all the tools required to manage resident care, including assessments, service plans, charting, incident reporting, and medication administration. Administrative tasks, such as managing levels of care, reporting and state compliance are simplified. Standardized wording within appropriate forms streamline assessments and service care plans. Customizable care levels, based on the specific care needs of the resident, produce more accurate resident costs, while accounting staff are notified automatically by email of any care level changes for real-time accurate pro-rated monthly invoicing. This auto care level change notification to "accounting" pays for the the software many times over!

A no cost or obligation, short (30) minute personalized software demo on your computer will help to answer all your questions. IF you want to learn more about the software a FREE (7) day trial of our software is available for "hands-on" learning.

Pros

I love receiving the daily automatic reports. I don't even have to log in to get my updates. The customer service is also outstanding.

Cons

I still don't know how to get the incident reports. However, the daily report is enough for me.

Response from AL Advantage

Hi Jessica,

Thanks so much for taking time to share this great review! It's good to see that you're using the automatic reports and that our support is exceeding your expectations.

As far as the Incident Reports. If you're referring to getting notifications, you can find out how to set that up on our FAQ page, in the Reports section. Or feel free to call or email [email protected] anytime and they can help as well.

We truly appreciate your partnership.

Sincerely,
The ALAdvantage Team

ala provides us with the tools to create a resident file and stay in compliance.

Pros

ease and that state licensing approves it. customer service is great.

Cons

the medication section . it is cumbersome and is not friendly for clinicians to whom we present request for reconciliation or review. the software captures and saves all meds that are entered into the system and does not have a feature to archive so it is not possible to generate a clean current list of active meds. it also does not archive old orders. we have a lot of order changes. there should be a way to segregate so that a current list of accurate meds is provided.

also, the assessment tool is good but should also be a stand alone . the full service plan is not often needed but the basic assessment is. currently , the assessment function does not capture any notes or instructions. additionally, not all facilities use a point system. this is confusing to customers.

the face sheet does not always put the alternate resp party contacts in the right order. it should be specific so we can choose what shows up on face sheet.

needs to add a specific section for annual vaccines and calendar of office visits- which dr is seen, date, etc.

Response from AL Advantage

Each section should be able to write individual responses - several areas not able to - Can not tweek the program enough to fit our facilities needs (example - the fall follow up - is a set amount of time - we should be able to tweek it to how ever long we need it). When looking at archived residents - should be easier to read notes - not have to reinstate them to read them. I often find that residents have "unit" and "sex" categories changed on the resident info page - these should have a question before changes are made to the info page - too easy to change with one key stroke. Is there a written manual for all the features of the program?

Pros

fairly easy to use

Cons

can not individualize enough

We've been with the company from the beginning and have seen positive, but slow, progress. We use it mainly for MARs and Facesheets. It's too clunky and not user friendly enough at this point to use on tablets. As stated above the customer service is awesome!

Pros

I love that it's built specifically for the industry. Face-sheets and MARs are equipped with the exact information needed. Customer support is on top of things, very quick to resolve issues and respond.

Cons

The UI is a little behind for online software. Seems like the web page could fill up the screen better, there are wide columns on either side. It can be really slow to respond or load and there seem to be a lot of steps involved sometimes, for example just to print the MARs. An app based software would also be great to be used on tablets! It would be nice to have a drop down menu of medications, doses and general directions, it would make entering MARs much faster. Also an electronic MAR would be awesome as well! Where each med-tech had a login and could digitally sign for meds.

Response from AL Advantage

Thank you so much for writing a review, Garrett! We appreciate your honest assessment and are looking forward to implementing some of the features that you mentioned in the future. We truly appreciate you taking time from your busy day to share your insights. We value our partnership with you.

AL Advantage pros vs. cons

Reviewed on 2019/06/25

Pros

Fairly easy to use. I use the program every day I am at work. I appreciate the "drop-down" selections on the Needs and Service Care Plan feature.

Cons

Cannot save a CA death report.
When you add one item to the Needs and Service Care Plan, the entire care plan has to be reprinted.
Confusion when listing the responsible party vs. the alternate contact for the face sheet. Responsible party is not always the person to call in an emergency....especially if they do not live locally.
Initially, a little more "hands on" training would have been nice and also a couple of follow-up visits from the Rep would have been helpful. I know we are not utilizing the full features of this program due to our heavy case load of 171 residents.

Response from AL Advantage

Hello Jan,

Thank you for this wonderful review.

When needing to save the CA Death Report simply open the link and download that report to your local machine. This will allow for local saving and editing.

We are always wanting to help our users with our software. If you would like to let us know a good time we can perform another training session for users please let us know and we will be happy to schedule that.

We always want you and your users to get the best and most abundant experience from our software.

Thank you!
