(the “Company” or “VitalHub”) (TSXV: VHI) is pleased to announce the sale of DOCit, an innovative, cloud-based forms and task management mobile app for Long Term Care providers, to Caressant Care Nursing and Retirement Homes Limited (“Caressant Care”).
Caressant Care owns and operates 15 Long Term Care homes and 10 adjoined Retirement homes across Ontario, striving to provide excellence in care to its 2,000+ residents. This sale to Caressant Care marks an important multi-site deployment of the DOCit app, as Caressant Care will leverage the application’s multi-site reporting capabilities allowing for organization-wide trending, multi-site data analytics and benchmarking.
The DOCit mobile app will allow Caressant Care’s direct care staff to become truly mobile; replacing manual paper forms, schedules, task lists, etc., providing mobile access through the integration of smartphones and tablets into clinical workflow. DOCit provides the ability to organize tasks and record critical resident activity when it happens in real time. DOCit has demonstrated positive effect on improving care quality, saving time and cost, ensuring data accuracy, and increasing staff satisfaction.
The sale of DOCit to Caressant Care comprises a two-year term, with an option to extend to five years. The implementation comprises two homes (in Woodstock and Cambridge, Ontario) totalling 242 beds, and will serve as a precursor to scaling across Caressant Care’s additional 13 Long Term Care homes.
“As part of our ongoing commitment to technology, safety, quality, and innovative processes, we are excited to implement VitalHub’s DOCit solution,” said Kim Leuszler, COO of Caressant Care. “We see tremendous value in a mobile solution that can streamline workflow for our staff, while providing immediate and reliable access to important resident data at the point of care.
