REDFLY Mobile Companion gives home healthcare workers a bigger screen and keyboard

However, a thumb-type keyboard and small display can hinder productivity during prolonged periods of data entry. Homecare Homebase’s enhancements allow PointCare customers to provide a low-cost combination smartphone and REDFLY Mobile Companion solution to their mobile workers that greatly reduces the risk of costly errors while increasing the overall user experience.

Homecare Homebase, LP and Celio Corp today announced Homecare Homebase has updated its popular PointCare Windows Mobile smartphone homecare and hospice software to include enhanced support for Celio Corp’s REDFLY Mobile Companion.

PointCare now takes full advantage of the REDFLY Mobile Companion’s large screen and full keyboard allowing mobile home health workers to enter data faster with fewer errors. Users also report reduced eyestrain and all-day usability thanks to the REDFLY’s larger screen and 8-hour battery.

“REDFLY and Homecare Homebase have worked together to optimize the font size and overall viewing quality of PointCare on the REDFLY device to ensure the best user experience and satisfaction. Quality is of the utmost importance when presenting our application across the various devices, and the REDFLY unit is a great option for many of our customers,” said Jim Griffin, VP Customer Services, Homecare Homebase.

With software from Homecare Homebase and a smartphone, home health workers have all of the needed tools to complete necessary data entry for all types of patient visits and look-up that patient’s historical medical data. The REDFLY provides a welcome addition to a smartphone-based solution because it gives users a more comfortable full QWERTY keyboard and larger display making extended periods of smartphone use easier and more productive.

“One of the smartphone’s best features is its small form factor,” said Celio Corp CEO Thomas Davis Jr., “However, a thumb-type keyboard and small display can hinder productivity during prolonged periods of data entry. Homecare Homebase’s enhancements allow PointCare customers to provide a low-cost combination smartphone and REDFLY Mobile Companion solution to their mobile workers that greatly reduces the risk of costly errors while increasing the overall user experience.”
