Sekoia joins the work to support the front line fight against COVID-19

With the current crisis setting every care operator on alert, lots of companies are looking at new ways to contribute.

Behind the scenes, we have been building brand new features now being released to help streamline care work and support the fight against COVID-19.

Healthcare Measurements

New and free healthcare measurements, including highly relevant respiratory rate, body temperature and six other measurement types, will assist care workers to gain a quick overview of vital data for the individuals in the care service.

“We know how important these will be to assess and immediately take action to ensure the safety of service users. So, we set every sail and moved up the release to now offer these for free to anyone, who wants to use them.” - Neha Mehta, Head of Customer Success

Alongside a built-in COVID-19 Symptom Checker mirrored from NHS 111, Sekoia aspires to support services detecting healthcare trends and taking appropriate actions when required.

Partners contribute C19 Risk Assessment 

It is always encouraging when positives come out of a crisis, and new partnerships emerged; techies joined forces with sector specialists Issac Theophilos, Michael Hinett and Tim Dallinger. These social care consultants have been working hard to prepare best practices and new C19 Risk Assessments and have been willing to share these to support care workers in the fight against COVID-19.

These resources have now been refined and released to every single Sekoia user, via a full dedicated Coronavirus section on Sekoia’s support portal. This should prove to be a more efficient alternative to locally discovering a best practice, printing and sending forms out in paper. Risk Assessments sit on the Sekoia app right next to other important forms that will help guide care workers through the vital checks and processes needed and helps to disseminate information at hand – across staff and service users.

The support portal includes the UK Government Guidance for care services with respect to COVID-19 and an easy read format document on the virus, sourced from Mencap. There is also relevant guidance from sources such as the Department of Health, Public Health England, NICE and NHS as well as templates for COVID Care Plans and Risk Assessments.

We hope that this small contribution to the fight will help to keep people safe and well.

Changing the way things are being done is not something that can just be done by the flick of a switch. Our way of doing things is deeply entrenched in our habits. These set routines also carry over to our work. And if managers or directors want to change the routines, they usually just send out an e-mail describing the new change. So, does the change take effect just because of that e-mail?
