27 May 2020 Tech Tools for Home Care Success
The world is moving toward digital outlets. After COVID-19, we can all see the benefits of this progression. Home Care is no different, and that’s a good thing. There are several useful tech tools powerful enough to profoundly influence how effectively we provide care. Here are some of the most exciting technological advances available for Home- and Community-Based Services.
Portable Data – The transfer of information is easier than ever before. With portable data, all information associated with a certain caregiver or care recipient can easily be moved. This means information can easily be moved from one agency to another, shared with another party, or accessed by the owner.
GPS Location – We are now seeing the use of GPS location in home care. For some, this tool is used for EVV to verify visit locations. For others, this tool helps locate individuals who may have wandered off due to cognitive disabilities.
Mobile Apps – Home care is now at your fingertips, just like everything else. From EVV applications to mobile app versions of agency management software, many home care agencies are integrating mobile options into their programs.
Analytics Engines – The great thing about going digital it that it comes with data. You can use the analytics to help better understand the people you serve, the people you work with, and the efficiency of your processes.
These are just a few of the exciting technology features reaching Home Care. For more about this and other HCBS topics, visit our blog at pavillio.com/blog today.
