Home care software provider CareLineLive has updated its Carer Mobile App to help care providers and their clients stay safe during the coronavirus outbreak.
The app now features quick reference information about COVID-19 and hygiene prompts for carers.
On check-in and at check-out of each visit, via the app, carers are prompted to wash their hands and wear gloves, if appropriate, and clean surfaces.
During visits, reminders are given about hand washing, avoidance of touching their face and coughing/sneezing into a tissue.
The CareLineLive Carer Mobile App also provides details about who’s at risk of contracting the virus, key symptoms to look out for, guidance on what to do if they recognise any symptoms and links to Public Health England and the NHS for more information.
Dec Norton, director of Development at CareLineLive, said: “During this outbreak, we intend to help our customers who work with the vulnerable as much as possible.
“The inclusion of prevention measures such as hygiene prompts and information about the COVID-19 in our Carer Mobile App is one of the ways we can do this. Being agile in developing our software has always been important to CareLineLive, to ensure that we continually meet the needs of our customers and their clients.”
CareLineLive’s total home care management system is designed to help home care agencies become more efficient by digitising their workflows such as invoicing and payroll. Care management and rostering is made easier as all information is centralised and accessible through the Carer Mobile App.
The company also offers a Family & Friends Portal, which keeps relatives and friends up to date about client visits, providing peace of mind.
