Bluebird Care has launched ‘Bluebird openPASS’, an innovative app which allows its customers, family members and friends to read a live feed update of a loved one’s care notes anywhere in the world on their mobile phone.
Bluebird openPASS electronically lists all notes from a customer’s care visit, highlighting what tasks were completed, when they were carried out and the overall health and wellbeing of a customer.
Bluebird openPASS is also available to health professionals such as GPs and hospital staff, meaning important and current care information can be accessed in the event of an emergency in a customer’s home.
This new software replaces the need for the old, paper method where hand written notes would need to be made at each care visit, and would only be reviewed each month as opposed to each day.
Norman Murphy, Owner & Managing Director of Bluebird Care, said: “We at Bluebird Care are proud to be leading the way in the social care industry and utilising this fantastic technology that will make our customers’ and their relatives’ lives easier.
“Bluebird openPASS is a brilliant app which enhances care connectivity and communication by giving access to real time care records on your mobile phone. It also allows you to keep an eye on a friend or relative anywhere, anytime, for example if you live elsewhere in the UK or even abroad.
“Our customers’ whole care visits are recorded electronically so you can see what your loved one has had for breakfast, taken their medication and how their general wellbeing is by lunchtime.
“Bluebird openPASS even allows our customers’ relatives to message the office and removes the paper based system which makes for a more efficient way of recording the care we provide.”
Mrs Collis, a Bluebird Care customer, said: “We’ve found Bluebird openPASS fantastic as we have instant access whenever we want it. We found it particularly useful when we recently went away on holiday as it gave us the added peace of mind that someone was seeing my Dad every day as he still lives on his own.
“You can see whether he’s refused any tasks or what has been carried out in detail. It is also easy to use, very accessible and it makes sense as it’s not complicated and gives exactly the right level of information. The main benefit is its access - even when we’re away we can keep up-to-date with my Dad’s care. There were no problems but if any did arise we would be able to take action quickly.
