NEW YORK, April 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sandata Technologies, a leading provider of technology solutions to the home care industry and its strategic partner, CareConnect, a leading human capital technology company focused on providing workforce management solutions for the home care industry, announce that Partners in Care, has selected CareConnect's COVID-19 caregiver screening tool, "SafeCare", to collect COVID-19 exposure data from its caregivers to meet New York Department of Health regulatory guidance and minimize the risk of spreading coronavirus. Partners in Care is already using Sandata's and CareConnect's applications to optimize compliance and automated shift booking in their large caregiver workforce.
"SafeCare" is a mobile application that uses SMS, in-app reminders, and push notifications to require caregivers to complete a self-assessment and complete e-learning content regarding COVID-19. Using this solution, Partners in Care can provide real-time, stay-at-home guidance or work instructions, deliver educational content and take appropriate actions under the Department's guidelines to ensure the health and safety of their workforce and patients at home.
"Adding CareConnect's 'SafeCare' solution immediately enabled us to collect critical health information about our caregivers and provide our now remote office team with a simple tool to better manage our workforce based on actionable data we are now collecting," notes Jim Rolla, Partners in Care's Vice President of Operations. "Without this solution, complying with the Department's guidelines would have been incredibly costly and cumbersome given the challenges we are all facing with the impacts of COVID-19."
"Partners in Care has been a trusted partner and true leader in bringing meaningful innovation within the Licensed Home Care Services Agency market in order to deliver quality care to its clients," says Sandata's CEO Tom Underwood. CareConnect's President Mike Gelman added, "We are thrilled to expand our partnership and help Partners in Care raise the bar engaging, working with, and building trust with their compassionate caregiver workforce."
