Cera is a digital healthcare company that uses technology to match elderly patients and families with carers. Realising the acute need to better connect patients and carers, we worked with Cera to help fix the outdated social care sector through designing, developing and delivering an innovative new app.
The Cera app allows carers to check in, check out, locate a service user’s home and record visit report. For family members or other professionals, it gives them direct access to this care information in real time. It also means branch teams receive and process all of the information from the app as it comes in, to help identify risks of health deterioration as early as possible.
It’s now been introduced to Cera's 19 branches and since the launch of the app the time it takes for reports to be completed has reduced from 20 days to 6.7 hours. More recently, Cera and the Department of health and social care have joined forces to create a 'fast-track online social care recruitment platform’ – Join Social Care. The platform connects social care jobseekers with care providers. As well as being of critical value during COVID19, our work with Cera was also honoured for Best Apps, Mobile, and Voice: Health, Fitness & Lifestyle in the 24th Annual Webby Awards.
