The mobile software revolution for aged and community care

Increase efficiency, productivity and client care with aged care mobile applications

There’s probably no better example of how community, disability and aged care software is improving our aged and community services landscape than that of mobile applications. With their real-time access to all relevant information, mobile health software solutions will hugely improve the quality, safety and cost effectiveness of your field staff’s services. They’ll also greatly boost the job satisfaction and morale of your team by giving them full control of their client and job information, eliminating the need for tedious paperwork.

Driving huge improvements in home care services

Wherever your field team workers are, with mobile health technology there’s no task they can perform in the office that they can’t do in the field. Through a secure, 24/7 online portal, they’re able to:

  • Have full access to client records. Field staff can document progress notes, visit activities and other details, thus reducing transcription errors.
  • Receive automated messages alerting them to changes in schedules and care plans.

And as a provider you can:

  • Electronically alert employees to care plan or schedule changes
  • Access any expense information in real-time, including travel and timesheets. This makes for an easier, more efficient and faster payroll system.
  • Ensure the safety of your mobile staff, with in-office alerts.
