Ecare from Enschede develops software for nursing home care, home care, and care for the disabled. This company, too, needed to adapt to the new situation. It assists customers as much as possible during this difficult time. They added a new instrument to their software for home and residential care that helps with Covid-19 triage: ‘PUUR.’. “A big part of our customers work in home and nursing care, and they take care of many clients every day. Many of them belong to the risk group for the virus. A good triage, specifically aimed at Covid-19 patients, is therefore critical!”
Triage is the assessment of symptoms or injuries to groups of people. The goal is determining the urgency of a request for help. Ecare’s tool consists of a questionnaire that the healthcare worker can fill in, and it will lead to the best plan of action. “It is available in our software, but this new tool is also available via www.coronatriagehulp.nl, where everyone, even those that do not work with PUUR., can use the tool.
In addition, Ecare has organised webinars in which they explain the possibilities of working from home. These sessions have been a great success, says Sabrina, an all-round marketeer at Ecare. They are also helping organisations with applying for grants that the government now offers due to the crisis. Ecare-employees are doing everything in their power to contribute during the crisis. For example, employees that have a care background are ready to assist in the healthcare sector should this prove necessary.
