VITALHUB ANNOUNCES SALE OF DOCIT MOBILE APPLICATION TO ANOTHER MUNICIPALLY-OPERATED LONG-TERM CARE FACILITY A INITIAL PHASE OF DEPLOYMENT TO BEGIN WITH ROLLOUT OF COVID-19 SCREENING SOLUTION
Vitalhub Corp. has sold its DOCit solution to the Corporation of the County of Lambton Long-Term Care Services, marking the addition of another municipally operated, public long-term care facility to its customer ranks.
Continuing to build upon the success of the Vitalhub-Trinity Village partnership through the procurement by co-design program, this sale demonstrates the growing market demand for the DOCit App, and represents another opportunity to service multifacility, public sector clients.
The County of Lambton owns and operates three long-term care homes as well as two adult enrichment centres offering day programs for dependent adults who live at home. The County of Lambton will leverage the application's multisite reporting capabilities allowing for organization wide trending, multisite data analytics and benchmarking.
DOCit will be rolled out in two phases, the first phase will involve the rollout of the COVID-19 screening forms to manage and conduct continuing screenings for signs and symptoms typical of COVID-19. Phase two will focus on mobile enabling caregiver tasks and resident and non-resident focused forms, allowing the county's long-term caregivers to truly become mobile; replacing manual paper forms, schedules and task lists, and providing mobile access through the integration of smart phone and tablet technology into clinical workflow.
"We are excited to deploy this new technology in our homes," said Jane Joris, general manager of long-term care for the county. "Documenting as care is provided improves the quality of care and safety of the people in our homes and the time efficiencies will be appreciated by both those people providing care and those receiving it."
"We are very excited to work with the Lambton county," said Andre Vandenberk, chief innovation officer of Vitalhub. "Lambton's decision to use DOCit further underlines its value ability to optimize workflow in a multifacility long-term care organization, providing our long-term care community with the technology and data to make critical decisions as they continue to manage and provide optimal care during the pandemic and beyond."
