Mobile solution for improved elderly care - Laps Care/Movit
“Has Mum had a visit from the home-help today, and how is she really doing?” These are the kind of questions asked every day by thousands of concerned relatives. Now the City of Stockholm can provide answers. Thanks to the Care Diary e-service, the elderly and their close family can monitor the treatment and care provided via the City of Stockholm’s website.
However, an information portal like the Care Diary e-service needs correct, updated information which is where the Movit solution comes into the picture.
When the elderly care service replaced the former planning and reporting tool of pen and paper with the open mobile solution Movit a lot of improvements were made. Planning flexibility increased, access to relevant information became constantly available, security was increased for both staff and care recipients, reporting became quick and easy, reports were no longer lost. And reports about the latest visits to one’s Mum could easily be made available in the information portal Care Diary.
Movit is an mobile extension to Laps Care which in turn is a modern and open planning system developed to be integrated into the customer’s business system. The latter, for example, could be Tieto’s own business system for healthcare and social care services, Procapita.
This is how it works
A number of solutions are integrated into the Movit concept, all to increase efficiency and improve the care service. It includes mobile terminals where home care employees have mobile access to everything from work schedules and case history notes to electronic keys. “These solutions also provide additional peace of mind for relatives,” describes Britt-Louise Ebbersten, coordinator of the social care systems, which are currently used by 16 000 employees. “Relatives can login to the online Care Diary and read what the home-care services have written about that day’s visit to the care recipient.”
