Brightree, a provider of cloud-based software for post-acute care companies, announces the release of the free BrightreeCARE app.

The app, available in the Apple App Store and Google Play, is designed to help enable home health and hospice aides to easily document their visits on their smartphones, without the need to carry additional equipment.

“The BrightreeCARE app has made our staff more mobile, flexible and efficient—plus significantly improved our patients’ satisfaction rates,” says Tarrah Lowry-Schreiner, CEO of Sangre de Cristo Hospice and Palliative Care in Colorado, in a media release from Brightree.

“Our aides are able to easily maneuver in a patient’s location without being tied down to an iPad or other larger device. Their phone can easily be placed in their pocket to give the patient the care indicated on their Care Plan.”

“Our staff is also thankful for the instant updates when visits are changed or added to their schedule, just by glancing at their BrightreeCARE app,” Lowry-Schreiner adds.

“This powerful app is comprehensive, easy to use, and tailored to the individual aides’ needs,” states Bob Dean, vice president and general manager of Brightree’s Home Health, Hospice & Private Duty business, in the release. “Supporting a bring your own device strategy, the application helps agencies incorporate aides into the EMR making them more productive and compliant to the patient’s care plan.”
