AlayaCare enhances features of its Family Portal
May 20, 2020
MONTREAL – AlayaCare has announced its revamped Family Portal: a secure, online tool for clients, providers and authorized family members to not only access their health care information from any device, anywhere, but to also become active participants in their own care plans.
The portal is the latest addition to AlayaCare’s Virtual Care Suite, an industry-leading home and community care solution that blends traditional and virtual care to clients anytime, anywhere. Through the HIPAA-compliant portal, clients and their families can manage information about their care plans, schedules, medications, vital signs and more.
Additionally, clients can complete self-assessments and clinical forms within the portal, and if they choose, share their medical information with family members – all while remaining safe at home.
“There was an unmet need for innovations like our Family Portal, and that need becomes far more acute now as COVID-19 puts the health of older adults and vulnerable patients at greater risk,” said Adrian Schauer (pictured), CEO of AlayaCare. “Using technology to augment human interactions is essential to the delivery of safe, high-quality home care. This will help combat isolation and transform clients from recipients of home care to participants in that care.”
The Family Portal becomes another component of AlayaCare’s approach to the pandemic – developing rapid virtual care solutions that notably includes a COVID-19 electronic screening tool, which enables care providers to assess a client’s risk for infection, and a secure video conferencing feature that seamlessly converts any in-person visit to a virtual one.
“Consistent and quality communication with our families is crucial. Our families need to know who is working with their child, and how their child is doing,” said Charles Wong, founder & president, CarePros. “Having the Family Portal allows our families to have easy access to the information they need in order to feel comfortable and have confidence in the care their family is receiving.”
Offering newfound measures of transparency to any home care agency, AlayaCare’s new premium Family Portal generates real-time updates on schedules, care plans and payments. This brings new levels of efficiency to back-office staff, who no longer need to phone individual clients if there are changes to care plans or schedules. The portal is updated in real-time, accessible anywhere, so that communication is uninterrupted, and new information is clearly documented so all involved in a client’s care have clarity and share the same expectations.
