Gearworks, a leading provider of location-based mobile business applications, today announced its mobile health care solution -- OnCare by Gearworks -- will be on display and demonstrated at booth #118 during the Visiting Nurse Association of America (VNAA) 27th Annual Meeting from May 14-16, 2009 in San Antonio, Tex.
Developed using Gearworks' Appmosphere™ mobile application platform, OnCare simplifies management of care professionals in the field and allows organizations to focus on delivering quality patient care. Specifically, OnCare uses GPS to help home care and hospice organizations increase productivity, ensure compliance and improve patient outcomes. The solution combines care plan information with location, ensuring that patient care plans are followed and billed accurately, reducing paperwork, expediting payroll and reducing fuel costs.
OnCare recently received the 2009 North American Home Healthcare Mobile Solution of the Year Award from Frost & Sullivan, and was selected as one of the top three "emerging technologies" in enterprise health care in the 2009 CTIA E-Tech Awards program. This award-winning technology represents a new set of wireless carrier-delivered mobile business applications designed using Appmosphere that explicitly match the unique needs of specific market segments.
Deployed on BlackBerry and other advanced mobile devices, as well as low-cost, mass-market mobile phones, and ready-to-integrate with health care information management systems, OnCare allows home care and hospice organizations to economically increase productivity, ensure compliance and improve outcomes, saving $300 per aide per month through reduced costs, increased visits and capturing missed interventions.
