Digital care planning company Sekoia has added some important features to its technology to help care homes in their fight against COVID-19.
It has added free healthcare measurements, including respiratory rate, body temperature and six other measurement types, so care workers have quick access to vital resident data.
“We know how important these will be to assess and immediately take action to ensure the safety of residents,” says head of customer success Neha Mehta.
Sekoia also offers a built-in COVID-19 Symptom Checker mirrored from NHS 111.
Care homes can also access a dedicated Coronavirus section, which includes risk assessment forms, on the Sekoia support portal to guide carers through vital checks and processes.
The support portal includes the UK government guidance for care services with respect to COVID-19 and an easy-to-read format document on the virus, sourced from Mencap.
There is also relevant guidance from sources such as the Department of Health, Public Health England, NICE and NHS as well as templates for COVID Care Plans and Risk Assessments.
“We hope that this small contribution to the fight will help to keep people safe and well,” says Mehta.
