Care management software supplier Log my Care has announced the launch of a new premium module designed to help providers streamline their record keeping.
Through Log my Care, carers can record care notes as they go on any smartphone and managers can see an overview of all care work and access records on their computer.
The new premium module introduces a number of new features, including Offline Mode, which enables carers to keep logging care records, even if internet connection is intermittent. Devices will be able to work offline for up to 24 hours and once connection is resumed, records will be synchronised across all devices.
Meanwhile, the new Instant Notifications function will send alerts to the main care office as soon as a carer records an incident. This means the manager on shift is notified straight away, no matter where the incident takes place.
Through the Handover Function, Log my Care will group together handover information ready for carers starting the next shift.
As an additional benefit, Pro users will also be able to store documents online related to standard policies and procedures; for example data protection, impact assessments, dress codes and CQC notifications.
Sam Hussain, Founder of Log my Care, commented: “From the outset we wanted to build a system that makes care planning and recording easy and that can be used by anyone. Technology can really help us, but it can also be frustrating when Wi-Fi suddenly drops. It was really important to us to make a system that offers continuity for care staff, and also enables carers to benefit from technology even if the home they work at is in a location with poor signal.”
