In following government and health officials’ recommendation to keep individuals healthy and safe in their home, the application gives front-line workers an electronic tool that they can use to assess risk before they provide home and community-based services to elderly and patients who are most vulnerable.

“Care providers were increasingly incorporating virtual tools into their service offering and now, with heightened pressure on the health care system, we’re seeing the need for and adaptation of smart technology tools accelerating,” said AlayaCare CEO Adrian Schauer. “The addition of the screening application will help care providers evaluate risk and early identification and response intervention has the potential to reduce the spread of infection.”

The solution is already in production and over 10,000 screens have been completed. AlayaCare, which services 10,000,000 home visits a month/over the course of 2019, is committed to leading the industry to a value-based, technology-enabled care model. The screening tool is a technology tool that will help curtail the transmission of infection within vulnerable populations.

Patrick Charbonneau, AlayaCare’s VP Product Management elaborated: “For our customers and for AlayaCare, protecting caregivers, clients and their collective loved ones in the community that they serve is a top priority. As the pandemic announcement and resulting infection control measures have evolved, we want to ensure that our application and its design were effective for clinical and home care personnel.”

In addition to the electronic screening tool, AlayaCare and leading quality assurance and performance benchmarking organization, Home Care Pulse, have also joined forces to launch a free employee phone screening survey for field staff to compete before providing home and community-based services.
