With COVID-19 and workforce shortages hitting aged care providers across Australia, the ability to streamline tasks to help free up care staff’s limited resources is essential.
That’s why Telstra Health has developed the new, easy to use CareKeeper app. CareKeeper enables care staff to quickly view, action and record care in real-time via a mobile device. With an icon-based design, the app enables care staff to clearly identify their list of tasks and allows them to document by the resident’s side, providing more opportunity for a personalised connection.
Instant access to information
With CareKeeper, care staff can access a resident’s profile, summary care plan and progress notes at the point of care, while capturing information in charts and progress notes in real-time.
With an icon-based design, staff can easily identify the care tasks that need completing and document the care delivered without the need to type lengthy notes.
CareKeeper enables staff to tick the most urgent tasks off as soon as they have been completed, which helps to streamline care activity workflows and can minimise the time spent on handover.
One source of truth
Unlike some care task and workflow apps in the market, CareKeeper is part of a comprehensive software suite that includes clinical, care, medication, funding, family communication and resident administration features.
The true integration between CareKeeper and Telstra Health’s Clinical Manager software helps enables one source of truth for data and helps to reduce duplicate data entry for time-poor care staff.
Innovative technology and security features
CareKeeper was designed with security front of mind and includes the following features to keep your data safe:
The app can be used successfully even in Wi-Fi blackspots, as CareKeeper has been designed with offline capability.
