Leading home care software releases feature to help agencies screen caregivers for COVID-19 exposure prior to each visit

AxisCare's Caregiver COVID-19 Symptom Screener, Fit for Duty

"This innovation is yet another example of how AxisCare is able to evolve quickly to offer solutions to our industry.” - Jason Wiberg, CFO of Family Resource Home Care

AxisCare has announced the release of their COVID-19 mobile screening feature, Fit For Duty. After consulting with the top home care law firm in the United States, AxisCare created the feature to provide agencies with a way to help clients remain safe by monitoring their caregivers’ exposure to COVID-19. If risk of exposure is suspected, alerts are immediately sent directly to the agency where they can respond as necessary.

The mobile app feature assists agencies with screening caregivers for exposure to coronavirus/COVID-19 by prompting them to respond to two questions related to COVID-19 exposure when they clock in to each visit. Agencies across the country have already started using the feature to assess risk and protect themselves from further liability.

“Family Resource Home Care has enabled the new Fit For Duty feature for all of our caregivers. We appreciate that this added function enables our team to be more proactive in protecting our clients. For many clients, our services are needed now more than ever,” says Jason Wiberg, CFO of Family Resource Home Care. “With Fit For Duty, we can deploy our caregivers more confidently into client homes with added assurance that self-screening has occurred. This innovation is yet another example of how AxisCare is able to evolve quickly to offer solutions to our industry.”

“The Fit for Duty feature and its screening questions were created following the recommendation and guidance of the top home care law firm in the US. Our hope is that this feature will not only reduce liability for agencies by keeping their patients and caregivers safe, but also contribute to slowing the spread of the Coronavirus,” says Todd Allen, AxisCare’s CEO.

So far, over 20,000 screens have been completed using the Fit for Duty mobile app feature. The adoption rate continues to rise rapidly as agencies understand the importance of tracking caregivers' COVID-19 exposure.
