BetterCare’s vision is to enable smooth, real-time communication between caregivers, nurses & professional staff in order to improve care at nursing homes.
The Problem: The communication between nurses and certified nursing assistants (CNAs) in skilled nursing facilities across shifts with high turnover staff is very challenging. There is a great need for point of care (POC) information to be consistently disseminated to all caregivers and easily collected from them in a timely way. With multiple caregivers taking care of a group of residents in one shift and with only manual written documentation, crucial information is lost and/or being distorted. As a result, patient care is compromised.
The Solution: BetterCare developed leading technology for caregivers’ support. The system provides caregivers with accurate information at the Point of Care, facilitating on-time documentation of important data, enabling an alert system to report to the Charge Nurse in a simple and easy manner, and automatically creating caregivers’ daily schedules.
Technology: An icon and picture based mobile application for caregivers with a web interface for the nurses and managers. The application is simple, user-friendly, customizable and comprehensive. The mobile application runs on a regular smart phone and is very intuitive to learn and use.
