To start a geriatric care management agency you need consultants. Along with an attorney, accountant, banker and GCM business consultant, you will need an IT consultant. The framework of your GCM business is not only your skill as a GCM but the flow of information about GCM and information about services, your clients and random information in general. All this information must be flow through hardware, software, I phones, handheld devices, back-ups, the cloud and all the applications on them and be networked in a way that your GCM employees can use that information to help your clients. You may be a GCM expert but unless you a technology expert, you need an IT or information technology, consultant.
The IT consultant will advise you on the most efficient way to use the current technology and help you or your GCM business consultant create a plan for growth in your GCM company. The IT consultant can also help you choose the correct type of computers for you and your staff (Apple or PC) the type right type of hardware or computers, the right networking tools, the best software to use in your business. It is also critical that your IT consultant help you integrate all your technology so that your GCM’s can easily use them and can capture 85% of your time and billing in the most effective and user-friendly way. You want the interface from time capture to invoicing to be easy and seamless so you can financially support your GCM business and yourself. Others hardware choices like scanner setups, printers, answering machines, back up drives, handheld computers can be selected with the help of an IT consultant. You need experts= if you are spending your time as a GCM expert.
I have personally found great IT consultants through UC Berkeley and UCSC near me. They are grad students and students majoring in technology. I also have a Youtube channel and have hired people through Upwork who have been highly skilled and reasonably priced
