NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The COVID-19 global pandemic has shed light on significant needs within the home healthcare industry. At the same time, societal and cultural changes have accelerated a demand for new ways to take care of the elder population who are staying at home more than ever before. As care providers and caregivers alike turn to digital solutions to help streamline and evolve at-home care, Medflyt, a cloud-based web platform and mobile app that changes the way homecare agencies staff, train and onboard caregivers to deliver in-home care to patients, today revealed exclusive survey results highlighting the current state of homecare in the United States. Surveying over 11,000 home caregivers across the U.S., Medflyt found COVID-19 has drastically affected their need for training and education. In fact, over 83% of caregivers have become more interested in in-service mobile training since the beginning of the pandemic—underscoring the need for technology that helps facilitate and streamline homecare operations.
"The pandemic has forced the homecare industry to digitally transform sooner than expected, creating a skills/training gap as patients rely on at-home health care," said Levi Y. Pavlovsky, COO and co-founder of Medflyt. "Based on our findings, it's clear that agencies are in need of solutions to help simplify caregiver staffing, training and compliance. In addition, caregivers are looking for more mobile-based options."
Medflyt, which is a HIPAA-compliant SaaS platform, has the industry's only mobile-first based suite of homecare management solutions: Online Staffing, Online Training, Remote Onboarding, Clinical Documentation, Compliance Tracking and Value-Based Payment Tracking.
