As the assessment is holistic, it tries to investigate all areas of a patient, from physical, environment, risk and many other areas, we felt that the trust factor was imperative to conducting a quick and honest assessment.
The aim was to have the care worker arrive on time, in a good state and informed of the patient. We also wanted to have the care worker have a proper conversation with the client and build trust, instead of having their head buried in a piece of paper.
We looked at utilising many 3rd party products for doing the physical assessment and looked to leverage an IBM voice to text product to allow for the capturing of the assessment results. Thus, the assessment would be recorded and transcribed with semantic analysis allowing for little to no extra work or the care worker.
A care team can gather information for an assessment in multiple sittings and places, without making the client feel detached or removed.
A care team can record and assess field observations in one place using text, photos, audio or video.
The primary care giver can capture and share relevant client information immediately to the care team.
