If there are any Seinfeld fans out there, you'll remember an episode in which Newman, Jerry's mailman neighbor, has a breakdown because "the mail never stops, it just keeps coming and coming!"  Trainings at a provider agency are similar - they are a constant.  Between your new hire trainings and your annual, semi-annual renewal of other trainings, your staff is always in training mode.  For the people at the agency that have to manage everyone's training and keep track of it all, it can be a stressful and never-ending task.  Good trainers are patient, organized and accessible without software.  Give them a software tool to manage trainings and you would be amazed at how much more you can do with trainings!  Below is a short list of the 5 benefits of tracking trainings in a disability provider software, such as an agency management platform.

Top Ten Questions we get asked - #8 How much does it cost?

Posted by Mike Holihan on Tue, Jul 10, 2012 @ 02:38 PM

This question is usually one of the first to come out of the mouths of an interested provider agency. If you’re like most agencies, you don’t have a clear idea of what to benchmark a solution like MediSked Connect against. There are a spectrum of products on the market that range from high end hospital systems to lower end software that only has one or two capabilities to it. So with that in mind, how much does it cost?


Our solution’s price is comprised of two parts:

1. A one- time upfront license activation expense to purchase and load a platform with all of your agency’s data (employees, clients, services, locations, payers, etc.)

2. A monthly subscription amount that you pay once you are up and running.


The amount you pay is based on your size and the desired server hosting package.

Size Class Level: For size of agency, we do not just look at the number of users. Your size is determined by a number of factors, such as revenue billed, # of services, # of clients and once those factors are known you are placed into a “Level”, with A being the smallest and D being the largest. The nice thing about our size level is that you can add more staff and still be at the same level – you are not penalized for bringing on more users. In fact, it’s encouraged. Your size level will typically remain the same over a long period of time unless you grow or shrink considerably.

Hosting License Level: Hosting license level is something that you decide. It’s basically the level of security and back up an agency feels comfortable with. At even our lowest option, it’s a very high level of hosting. See the chart below for details.

That essentially makes up our pricing. I know what you are saying- that’s interesting but seriously how much does it cost. Well based on our pricing, it varies on size and hosting level. Unless you are a large agency, your annual investment will run well under the cost of one office staff member and our customers usually see a full return on investment within the first year. MediSked Connect was created to help generate more revenue, faster while making you bullet proof in an audit. So, this blog post did not give you a concrete number – but that’s because we don’t know who you are. If you fill out our Request a Quote Page we will be able to give you real numbers and talk more about our value, in a low pressure environment. As we said earlier, we know that there are not a lot of other solutions specifically geared toward provider agencies to ballpark against and sometimes that’s all you’re looking for. Please get in touch with us and we would be happy to assist.
