What is QuikPlan Mobile - NFC Care Monitoring?

NFC Care Monitoring


A mobile phone app for monitoring care staff

QuikPlan Mobile is a "cutting edge" mobile phone app for home care agencies that gives your care staff live appointment monitoring.

With the ability to log in and out of visits to confirm attendance and a safe convenient way to provide your mobile care workers with the information they need to cover their visits, QuikPlan Mobile is the essential live link between your care staff and your co-ordinators.


QuikPlan Mobile app works without a signal

QuikPlan Mobile app will work without a network signal. This is because it is a full blown database program and not a basic web app.

QuikPlan Mobile app is not a web app, it is a sophisticated program with its own database. Unlike web apps, QuikPlan Mobile app will work in isolated locations without a network signal. The care worker's device is syncronised with the server every 10 minutes ensuring their visit rotas are always up to date. If the care worker loses signal at a visit, they can still clock in and out. This is because the information is stored on the device, so as soon as they have signal, the information is syncronised.

 

How it works


NFC tags (stickers) are placed in the home 

NFC identity tags that are unique to your service users are placed in their home, usually located in their care plan.

 

Swipe tag with the phone to monitor care

Your care staff log in and out of visits by swiping their phone over NFC stags when they enter and leave a service user's home.

 

NFC Electronic Call Monitoring is confirmed 

Call monitoring confirmation of attendance is pushed to QuikPlan whereby the visit rotas are updated with the actual visit times.

 

 

QuikPlan Mobile features 


Easily clock in and out of visits

When your care staff enter and leave a call they swipe their phone over an NFC tag that is placed in the service user's home. This action prompts the staff to clock in or out of visits thus confirming their attendance.
 

Real time appointment manager

Your care staff can easily view their visits for today and tomorrow from the appointment manager screen. When your co-ordinator makes changes to the rotas in QuikPlan, those changes are reflected on the care staff's phone.
 

Service user appointment details

Selecting a service user's visit on the appointment manager screen presents you with their appointment details. On this screen you can see the basic information relating to the service user's care package.


Collaborate with the team

With QuikPlan Mobile your care staff and co-ordinators can create notes and share critical service information. Creating notes as events happen keeps the whole team informed whilst providing historical records and accountability.
 

GPS mapping and directions

To assist your staff with directions to their appointments, QuikPlan Mobile's built in map directions and Sat Nav guidance system will guide your staff from their current location to their next appointment.


 

QuikPlan Mobile overview 


QuikPlan Mobile - NFC Electronic Call Monitoring Technology 

QuikPlan Mobile is probably the most useful tool your care staff will ever use..

QuikPlan mobile phone solution for home care & domiciliary care agencies is like having a briefcase in your pocket, it provides your carers with near real time visit scheduling, service user details, GPS mapping with automatic route planner from your current location to the next appointment. Team note sharing keeps your coordinators and care workers fully informed while the built in NFC Electronic Call Monitoring System ensures your service users receive their appointments as planned.
 


NFC Electronic Call Monitoring - Live Appointment Monitoring (LAM)

NFC (Near Field Communication) is a technology built into smartphones that activates the QuikPlan mobile phone application when a phone is swiped over an NFC tag. This technology has been adopted by the QuikPlan Mobile application, allowing us to build LAM (Live Appointment Monitoring) in to our QuikPlan mobile phone application for domiciliary care and home care agencies. NFC stickers are placed in the service users care plan, in their homes. The care worker swipes their phone over the NFC sticker when they enter the home and again when they leave. Swiping the handset over the NFC sticker retrieves the details programmed into the NFC sticker (unique to each service user), along with the care workers mobile phone number, the date and time and the GPS location. This information is automatically pushed up to the QuikPlan servers and updates your QuikPlan Schedule Expert program in real time. LAM (Live Appointment Monitoring) will give you the reassurance that your care workers are at the service users home during the planned times.

QP Live Care Monitoring - (Live appointment viewer)

QP Live gives you a visual overview of your home care appointments as they actually happen. See your care workers logging in and out of visits in real time and get early warnings of late or missed visits. QP Live is an integral part of QuikPlan Schedule Expert and can be easily accessed by clicking on its tab within QuikPlan. As QP Live is updated it checks the status of your planned appointments and shows the appropriate status icon for that moment in time. When a visit is completed successfully it is automatically marked as complete and is ready for invoicing and payroll. This automated process of real time visit logging is very accurate. It will eliminate human errors and save you the time and hassle of checking off timesheets manually.

Real Time Care Monitoring Manager

QuikPlan Mobile displays the care workers appointments for the current and following day. These lists of appointments are linked to the main QuikPlan Schedule Expert database, so when a coordinator changes an appointment, the care worker receives those changes almost immediately. As the appointments are completed the display changes the font colour from purple to orange thus providing an easy to see visual guide of the care workers tasks for the day. The coordinator is continuously updated as to their care workers location and if necessary, alerts can be set against time critical appointments.

 

Service User Appointment Details

Your care workers can view a service users address, contact details, the service being provided, coordinator notes, task notes and who is linking up with them (double up), by clicking on the arrow along side an appointment. If there is a note attached to an appointment the arrow will turn from grey to red. Having this information available to the care worker on a mobile phone is more secure than carrying paperwork because the phone is locked with a PIN when not in use. Another benefit of QuikPlan Mobile is that when the information relating to a service users appointment changes in the QuikPlan database, these changes are immediately passed to the care workers.

Share notes with the team

Your coordinator can pass information to the care worker and vice versa. When a coordinators note is created in the service users record within QuikPlan, it is reflected on the care workers mobile phone. A task note can be created by the coordinator that is specific to a particular task. The care worker can create a new note or add a comment to a task note from their phone. The note is date and time stamped along with the name of the care worker who created it. This information is pushed up to the QuikPlan database where the coordinator is immediately informed of its arrival.

GPS Mapping and Directions

QuikPlan Mobile will provide the care worker with directions to their next appointment by pressing the map button in the application. This takes the current GPS location and plans a route to the address of the next appointment. The route can be viewed as a map or displayed as written directions. If you prefer the map facility within QuikPlan Mobile can be linked with your sat nav for safer driving instructions.
