AHT Software For Your Long Term Care Facility
Providers looking for LTC software know that their healthcare settings are very different from hospitals and physicians’ offices. Much of the software that’s developed for acute or ambulatory care settings have very different functionality from those designed for LTC settings. They may not convert to long term care use. This is why you should look for software that’s specifically designed for the clinical and operational needs of LTC settings. One that we like is American HealthTech (AHT) software for LTCs.
What Modules Are Included In AHT?
- The Work Center
With the web-based AHT Work Center, caregivers can view complete, real-time resident information in a way that accommodates their workflow. Built to support physician mobility, this module lets them access resident information from mobile devices—and even sign orders electronically—to provide faster and more informed care. The “My Story” timeline presents clinicians with a complete chronological account of the resident’s history that makes resident assessments and shift transitions easier than ever.
This comprehensive set of features is completely integrated with the entire Care Management suite and will help your clinicians manage the EHR for your residents. Clinical offers clinical documentation and quality assurance tools to help the care teamwork efficiently, support regulatory compliance, and provide excellent care.
- Smart Charting (Point of Care)
Say goodbye to holes in charts, copy-cat charting, chasing down charts, and headaches with enforcing policies. This is clinical documentation made easy, resulting in complete documentation, enhanced compliance, and appropriate reimbursement.
- Order Administration (Point of Care)
Benefit from electronic medication and treatment administration record (eMAR/eTAR) management that is integrated with the entire Care Management solution.
Powered by the Rcopia product from DrFirst and integrated into the clinical workflow, ePrescribing allows providers to electronically prescribe medications, including controlled substances, efficiently. Interaction checking and a more structured sign-off process help protect residents from inadvertent medication errors.

Integrated with the Revenue Cycle Management solution as well as Clinical (for MDS tracking), this application will help ensure that you are reporting on, and getting compensated for, these important services.

Manage supplies and streamline billing by importing supply information. Integrated with the Financial and Enterprise Management solutions, this module helps ensure you are getting paid correctly for the supplies you are using to care for your residents.

Have You Checked Out AHT For Your Administrators?
It’s not uncommon for your administrators to be seeking real-time resident and facility info for decision support in the morning.
