CellTrak Technologies has unveiled a significant upgrade it its Mobile Health Solution, which is used by 4000 agencies around the world to track the delivery of care services to almost one million homes per week.
The latest release includes a significant expansion of CellTrak’s support for Shared Care, in which a caregiver provides care for several clients, moving between them in multiple short care segments.
The tracking solution is linked Google Maps, and features that improve communication between caregivers in the field and the office staff and reduce administrative paperwork.
“The demand for home care is increasing rapidly, as is the pressure to deliver it more efficiently,” stated Mark Battaglia, CellTrak’s CEO.
“The best practices for care delivery – and the management of care delivery – are continually changing. At CellTrak, that translates to delivering frequent updates of our industry-leading mobile solution in ways that make a real difference in terms of our customers’ ability to improve care quality, compliance and communication; reduce administrative costs; and improve staff productivity and satisfaction.
“The Shared Care delivery model is increasingly important as more caregivers work with patients and clients in both facilities and homes. We worked closely with our customers to determine the best way to support it. The result of that collaboration is new functionality that works the way people in home health and hospice really work, and is unrivalled in the industry.”
The introduction of Google Maps to improve Electronic Visit Verification, is designed to reduce driving time and make mileage calculations more accurate, especially for rural areas. It is now offered for countries outside CellTrak’s home country of the United States.
