Visit Analysis Healthcare System (VAHS)
Mobile technology can play an important role in mobile home based care services. Our Mobile Visit Analysis Healthcare System (VAHS) was developed specifically for Security Guard Companies providing escort services to Healthcare Workers that visit home care patients in unsafe areas.
VAHS is designed to address three critical management issues: GPS tracking and verification of patient visits, Escort Scheduling and Analysis reports
The VAHS system consists of two parts: VAHS Mobile app and VAHS Web App.
VAHS Mobile app
This App is used by Security Officers who escort HealthCare Workers (nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical and occupational therapists, social workers…) when they visit patients at their homes in unsafe areas. The App allows the Security Officer to check in and out with the Head Office Security Dispatch to confirm that they are present to escort the HealthCare Worker at the beginning and end of their shift of patient visits. The Security Officer is required to use the App to record the beginning and end of each patient visit to collect the durations of the visits for accounting and billing purposes. The GPS coordinates are recorded at various times during the shift to track the progress, route, and locations of the Security Officers and the Healthcare Workers. The GPS coordinates are resolved into street addresses to capture the patient addresses for verification and payroll/billing purposes.
Data collected by the App are sent real time to the Web servers for monitoring and accounting. The data collected includes the following;
- Healthcare worker scheduled pickup time and location.
- Healthcare worker start & end times.
- The location of each visit.
- Time spent with each patient.
- Travel time between each patient visit.
- Down time between visits.
- Escort services provided (eg Translation/Security).
- GPS information of the Escort/Healthcare worker at any time during their work assignment.
