Meet Visit Optimizer: AlayaCare’s new solution for scheduling vacant visits

As a leading technology for home-based and community care providers, AlayaCare always strives to improve how it empowers organizations in supporting their staff and delivering the best possible care to their communities.

That’s why we are excited to announce the official launch of a new feature called the Visit Optimizer. AlayaCare’s new solution matches vacant visits with suitable care providers using advanced algorithms and aligning scheduling practices with business objectives. We know that time is one of the most valuable, yet scarce, resources across the health care sector. Our feature is another powerful tool that providers can use to tackle this challenge.  

With more time back in the day, organizations can focus more of their energy on what matters most – driving better outcomes for their business, their staff, and their clients.  

Our Visit Optimizer has been designed around three core pillars: 

  1. Better client outcomes
  2. Efficient workforce utilization  
  3. Streamlined scheduling 

Transform your scheduling with the Visit Optimizer  

The scheduling of vacant visits can be a hard task for many providers, but the Visit Optimizer is here to make this process more efficient and effective. The key features of this innovative solution include: 

  • Streamlining the laborious manual process of assigning care workers to vacant visits, which offers providers an intuitive, optimized approach to reduce client wait times and reduce mileage costs.  
  • Efficiently matching and assigning care providers to vacant visits based on their proximity, qualifications, and any other defined parameters. By automating this process, care providers can save time, reduce operational costs, and improve the quality of care delivered to clients. 
  • Identifying the best employee for the visit. This feature allows organizations to offer and negotiate with care providers for vacant visits based on their availability and qualifications. This saves time spent on searching, matching and offering/negotiating with care providers to fill vacant visits. 
  • Providing the ability to offer out assignments in bulk for visits, as well as the ability to bulk assign the visit to employees through the Visit Optimizer. This flexibility allows organizations to easily manage their workforce efficiently and ensure that their clients receive care from the best-suited care provider. 

Configuring the Visit Optimizer into your workflow 

We understand how important it is for new features to fit in with your organization’s unique needs and preferences.  

With the Visit Optimizer feature, you can launch a set of filters to select the specific vacant visits you would like to fill, streamlining your scheduling process. The tool then computes the most efficient route based on these configuration parameters: 

  • Minimize travel time  
  • Maximize continuity of care 
  • Maximize skills matching  
  • Minimize wait times  
  • Optimize for daily hours (being the number of hours per shift in a given day)  
  • Optimize for weekly hours (being the number of hours worked in a given workweek) 

The scheduler can then bulk assign or offer the suggestions, and run another optimization job immediately, or return to their other duties. 

The Visit Optimizer is a game-changer 

AlayaCare’s Visit Optimizer delivers a clear competitive advantage through its advanced algorithms that enable organizations to balance business and scheduling objectives. With this new feature, providers can increase workforce retention, reduce mileage costs, and offer their clients the highest quality of care in the shortest possible time.  

Ultimately, our Visit Optimizer has been developed to help schedulers work through their priorities faster and more efficiently, and drive better outcomes for their communities.
