Nursebuddy offers free services for homecare providers in response to COVID-19 crisis

Posted by Kane Caswell

Homecare software Nursebuddy is offering its full platform for free to help companies tackle the COVID-19 situation.

To help with self-isolation and remote working, Nursebuddy has created ‘Launchpad’, to allow companies to start managing clients and care workers all in one software package, including rota management, risk assessments, medication and eMAR, care planning, staff cover and much more.

As of today, Nursebuddy will offer the Launchpad package free of charge to small and starter companies that need a software package to become truly paperless and access anywhere.

Nursebuddy also has a Family Portal, allowing communication and transparency of care about their loved one’s care.

“Now more than ever, we need to have homecare for those that are vulnerable. Isolation will require more home visits, and helping starter and small companies to have the technology in place to manage their business remotely, and safely, is how we are looking to help people across the UK.” says CEO of Nursebuddy, Simo Hännikkälä.

“After speaking with the Homecare Association, CQC, and our own existing clients, the expectation is that there will be more work than ever. Our system will give immediate relief, save time and help you manage during this crisis. All our features, for free, to help manage your clients and carers.” says Simo.

All elements of care management are in one system; the care plans, the scheduling, the electronic call monitoring, and all the way through to the invoicing and payroll. All managed in real-time and from anywhere.

Nursebuddy is also implementing new features to support home care companies during this crisis, making more critical information even easier to access, and improving the safety of clients and care workers during visits.

“Our easy to set up and use system will allow companies to start visits right away. We are committed to helping everyone in the care industry, clients, managers, and care workers, provide the best possible care that they can,” describes Head of Sales, Kane Caswell.
