I deal alot with drainage problems, and I suggest a trench drain. You would need to cut a slot/channel in the concrete, dig out the substrate and reverse slope it outwards from your home structure, pour a concrete bottom in it and placee th trench grate over the slot. It's more a commercial/industril application, but i'm seeing it requested and used more and more on residential property, especially as an expansion joint/drain.
