What Avel eCare Customers Say:

“As CEOs, our top concerns are managing the quality of care we provide while balancing costs. Over the years, we’ve not only seen significant cost savings because of eCare (i.e. being able to hire more APPs), but we’ve continued the same level of the quality care at the same time. eCare has been a godsend for us out here.” Bryan Slaba, CEO/Administrator, Wagner Community Memorial Hospital
