About Ascend Health Plus

Ascend Health Group’s operations are supported by a custom-built technology platform that automatically manages administrative tasks. Ascend Health Plus specifically allows administration information to flow seamlessly from bookings, to reports, to invoices, and finally to timesheets.

Normally a manual process, our technological solution does not require an administration team. Our COO and co-founder Olivia Mann is therefore able to directly facilitate support services with frontline therapists and therapy students. Unlike our competitors, this eliminates the need for supervisors and managers, as support staff are able to effectively coordinate all aspects of disability services. 

Our platform is also completely transparent on all fronts to our members. We allow our members to see every detail of their services and they have the power to instantly review costs and services at any time. They also have a simple solution at their fingertips to selectively book supports and modify their funding plans as their needs change.
