Eldermark Software announced last week a collaboration with the professional services firm CliftonLarsonAllen (CLA) that will allow Eldermark clients to address billing challenges through CLA’s outsourced services, robust data and technology utilizations.

Eldermark clients will be able to outsource billing functions to CLA on a per resident, per month fee, allowing CLA’s professionals to identify opportunities for improved profitability.

“In senior living, billing is a massive pain point,” said CLA Principal and Senior Living Leader Cory Rutledge. “Poor billing practices result in poor outcomes for senior living communities and, here at CLA, we know what we’re doing and we do a lot of it. We’re excited to bring our decades of experience to Eldermark.”

CLA’s mission with Eldermark customers won’t focus solely on standard billing practices; the firm will also provide a knowledgeable, outside perspective to clients so that they can better compete in the senior living market by finding new opportunities to improve financial performance, cost structures and staffing management.

“Our collaboration with CLA allows our clients to fully utilize our software to its fullest capacity and provide key insights into business operations that will bolster profit margins in ways previously only dreamed about,” said Eldermark CEO Craig Patnode.
