Most local authorities operate their own unique invoicing arrangements often running on different cycles, CareMaster is able to deal with this and special local authority invoice layouts are also available. Resident data can be reported on along with occupancy analysis, average fee rates and invoicing details.
Multiple funding sources such as Local Authority, Health Authority and Funded Nursing Care can be set up for each resident. When rates change the sophisticated global update facility makes the tiresome job of updating residents' records with new rates quick and easy. When rate increases are notified late, adjustments can be made retrospectively.
Unlike some other Care Home software packages, CareMaster integrates directly with Sage 50cloud Accounts which means that invoices can be posted directly to the residents accounts at the click of a button and without any re-keying of data. There is now also a version of CareMaster which links to Xero Accounting. The standard invoice layouts can be used or users can set up their own layouts incorporating a logo or other design. Various Local Authority invoicing layouts are already included and others can be added on request. Both invoices and resident records can be archived.
There is a built-in Occupancy Analysis facility which allows users to build up a complete occupancy history for each room. Reports can be run at any time to show the current occupancy levels and expected income. A report writing service is available for those who require information which is not already provided for in the standard reports.
The CareMaster software is constantly being developed and we welcome suggestions from users for improvements and additional features.
