Why Care App is Ideal to Sustain Growth of Social Care Sector
Growth is inevitable in any sector, and social care is not an exception. The UK’s The Guardian cites the growing number of aged people as a proof for this need and, because of that, the sector needs to keep up with the growth by hiring more people to work as social care workers. It would be great if the sector also puts its attention to investing in applications like Care App to manage the workforce.
Why the Sector Needs the App
As a group experiences growth, leadership and management becomes quite a challenge. How does a leader keep track of his underlings? This is possible through the submission of reports. However, reports can be delayed and can have missing information if the current technology is to be kept. That is why the Community Care App was developed – to provide a means to streamline social care groups’ reporting and monitoring processes.
The Improvements Found in the App
The app brings several features that social care groups will definitely find to their liking, and these features include:
• Management Portal for remote management
It is important to have a means of remotely managing field workers, and the Community Care Apps provide social care group managers a means to learn the status of each individual worker with as little as a glance in the computer monitor. The Portal provides a Map where the location and the status of each social care expert is plotted and updated.
• Mobile forms for real-time reporting
Remote management is totally useless if there is no means for updating the information in real time. Without this system, information in the Portal is outdated and inaccurate. However, the Care Apps provide a means for the mobile workforce to submit reports in real time to ensure that the information that the management views through the Portal is timely and up to date.
• A transparent system
In addition, the Portal and the real-time reporting make sure that the entire workforce of social care experts is transparent with their reporting. As long as a system is devised that requires the team members to provide periodic reports on their status, no one will be able to manipulate their productivity in order to slack off or work hard at their own pace. The digital forms also have compliant assurance features to make sure that reports are correct and complete.
These three features are the dream of every organization’s leaders, and now they are a reality with the Carers App at their disposal. Care App needs to be taken full advantage of in order to fully experience its benefits to a social care group.
