Home Care Applicant Tracking: Managing Employee Applications With AlayaCare

Randi Baxter Posted on Jan 5, 2018

The need for home health aides and care workers is forecasted to grow by almost 70% between 2010 and 2020. According to Home Care Pulse, nearly 63% of home care providers report caregiver shortages as the single greatest threat to their growth.

Hiring hard working and compassionate care workers can help set your organization apart from the competition and increase referrals. This means agencies need the ability to attract, engage and build better relationships with candidates all while keeping up with rapidly increasing demand.

Home health organizations are leaning to technology to reduce the burden on HR staff to process and file potential candidates.

Challenge #2 

Many agencies are missing out on opportunities due to a lack of technological tools. Tracking and processing and searching active and passive candidate applications takes an inefficient amount of time.

Solution

The AlayaCare system makes it simple to track and process potential candidates. Once an applicant’s details are submitted online, their AlayaCare Profile is created with an "Applicant" status. All the information from the applicant page is written to their AlayaCare profile under "Demographics". Applicants can have their status changed to "Rejected" or "Active" depending on the hiring decision and are easily accessible through the global search or through the Employee List.
