everyLIFE Technologies, a provider of digital services for the care sector, has developed a new solution that records and reports COVID-19 status and PPE use on the frontline.
Free to all users, C19 CONTROL gives carers and care managers a way of tracking the COVID-19 status of both staff and those being cared for. This includes identifying those who are self-isolation.
The service also allows carers and teams to report the availability and use of protective equipment. This information is then shared with care managers in real time.
Duncan Campbell, director at everyLIFE, said: “As soon as we understood the significance of the COVID-19 for care services, our teams were determined to make a difference. We wanted to make COVID-19 status and PPE tracking available to all carers and care providers. This had to reflect the needs of frontline care, easy to use and aligned with the overall response to COVID-19.
“C19 CONTROL is the result of amazing efforts across everyLIFE, with support from our partners and other stakeholders across the health and care system. We will continue to develop features as guidance is issued and we receive feedback from those using the C19 CONTROL service.”
As well as supporting the delivery of care, the information gathered by C19 CONTROL can be shared to support the wider response to COVID-19. Automated reporting and heatmaps can be shared with public services, including regulators and NHS as well as local, regional and national government.
The service is available on Android and iOS as well as a web-based portal; all supported by online tools and a UK-based customer support team.
