The Right Balance of Autonomy & Attention.

In any setting across the continuum, we focus on integrating all documentation in the medical record. Entries made in ECS do not remain in a vacuum – they go on to populate not only the MDS and the billing system, but every department record on which you rely.

Integration Across the Continuum

While all facilities must follow the minimal standards of the law, every facility is different due to the population they serve, the community they serve, the workers serving, the leaders, and the resources available. That is, an EMR focused on the patient should be able to do more than help meet the minimal standards of law, but rather be flexible to the differences between one facility and the next. Otherwise, the good or better facility will gravitate to minimal standards of the law. ECS is the ultimate in flexibility and customization from report writing (without additional fees) to the actual user input screen presentations. We create different user navigation based on each different type of care setting – we tailor our screens to your workflow.

  Customize ECS right down to your duties!

Senior Living

Adult Day Care
Facilities that host adult day care manage shifting schedules and service offerings like many nursing homes, but they also have to keep up with a list of ever-changing attendees. American Data has worked with an increasing number of adult day care centers throughout the years, and ECS has evolved to match this need. Our scheduling tools make it easy to keep track of the different patients who constantly rotate through your door, and for your staff to synchronize their own availability.


We help you support the elderly population in your community so they can remain active, social, and autonomous before they are ready for full-time care.


Home Health
ECS provides the charting tools you need to effectively travel in the community and provide home-based care services while remaining compliant with regulation. We embed the OASIS assessments into ECS so certified home health programs can submit them electronically and keep their Medicare or Medicaid status.

Flexible, Customizable, & User Controlled

ECS Fits to Your Facility!

American Data believes that the software should fit to you – never the other way around. Customization is really about delivering you an EMR system that can reflect your facility’s daily workflow. It is about providing you with a product that will eventually reduce costs, increase caregiver’s time spent with patients, and be flexible enough to have a long shelf life.

Not only is flexibility important, but you must also consider to what extent the system can be customized as well as the amount of time and energy you must put in to do so. Information on screens in ECS can be customized down to what appears, how it appears, where it appears, and even who it appears to. Modifications are user-friendly and can be done by authorized personnel at each facility. It requires no IT/programming background. In this way the facility can change their system as their needs dictate.

Life Plan Community (Formerly CCRC)

Our software ECS allows all care levels in Life Plan Communities to communicate as effectively as staff within a standalone nursing home. ECS can be tailored to standalone nursing homes, ALs, or ILs, but it can also work for a single facility that offers any or all of these care levels. All components of ECS are flexible enough to work across the entire continuum of care, and to move with residents as they shift from one care level to the next.

Assisted Living
Assisted living facilities need to keep track of an incredibly diverse range of resident needs, service offerings, and staff levels. The AL solutions in ECS are focused on care assistant flow sheets, services plans, and interdepartmental notation pathways to meet that range of requests. Your residents will be in good hands.


Our guided access screens also make it easy for your staff to work their way through their shifts easily. Because ECS does not require extensive typing or detailed narration, you no longer have to worry about trusting your junior staff members with complex documentation. Our financial components can also be tailored to your particular array of services so you can make sure you bill your residents accurately.


The flexibility of ECS makes it a great fit for ALs of all sorts, whether affiliated or standalone.

Independent Living
When residents make use of the freedom offered through independent senior living, monitoring their needs can be a different sort of challenge. Because charting in ECS is quick and efficient, you can make notes on the go and cover more ground. Our IL solutions also offer great ways to track and budget for services such as transportation, meals, and supplied.

Ensure all of your residents receive the right balance of autonomy and attention with ECS.

Skilled Nursing Facilities


ECS is designed with nursing homes in mind and can be customized for homes of any size. Every department in your diversified facility can synchronize data in the same patient record. From caregiving, billing, and HR to fundraising, maintenance, and housekeeping, ECS takes care of you.


Your skilled nursing facility also needs to employ a high level of professional care to meet federal requirements, and ECS can help you continue to do so. American Data monitors changes in CMS regulation with you, so we can help ensure your SNF receives the correct reimbursement. Your best providers can continue giving your residents the best care possible.
