Victoria, BC (September 17, 2015) – Procura, leading provider of home and community care software, announced today that they have secured a long term renewal of their Procura Mobile for Smart Phone contract with Bayshore HealthCare.
As the largest national provider of home and community health care services, Bayshore serves over 150,000 clients per year. Bayshore provides a wide variety of services including home health care, advanced clinical services, therapy and rehab, seniors wellness programs, pharmaceutical patient support programs, cancer patient assistance programs, diabetic supplies home delivery, and more.
“Bayshore has been a valued partner in contributing to Procura’s mobile roadmap,” stated Scott Overhill, Procura’s CTO, “the smart phone application has gained greatly via shared insight and we believe this long term agreement will see many future innovations.”
One of many examples of the collaboration is the ability to configure personal support worker observations and progress notes. These notes automatically notify Bayshore’s care managers and field clinicians of potential concerns through Procura’s Work Flow and Alerts Engine and Clinical Day View modules. Such notifications permit proactive management of care in between visits from clinicians.
Regular updates and enhancements to the application provided Bayshore the confidence to make this business decision. Both companies plan to leverage the solution to include extended interdisciplinary mobile workforce communications capabilities, virtual care delivery, and peripheral medical device extensions.
“Procura’s mobile solution set is tightly integrated with our office automation and workforce management solutions in place,” said Leigh Popov, CIO of Bayshore HealthCare. “It allows us to deliver and receive information between the office and field quickly and securely, in real-time, across numerous mobile device platforms. Our field staff love it because the apps’ ease of use allows them to continue to focus on the client in front of them, versus fiddling with the technology.”
The use of mobile devices in today’s world is a critical component in the delivery of quality care and reducing costs in the community. Procura Mobile is a fully integrated solution that addresses scheduling and documentation all on a smart phone platform. Field staff have easy access to current client details and documentation that is completed in the home, including visit activities and other notes of interest to the care giving team. With the help of Procura Mobile, Bayshore’s staff are able to improve the level of patient care provided and eliminate data entry errors and manual processes.
