A new care management app has already raised 45% of the money needed for it to enter into the market having only recently launched its crowdfund campaign.
StoriiCare, a technology system designed to evidence care and remove paper from care businesses, has raised £134,000 as it seeks to become ‘the Facebook for care’.
Through the system, staff have access to service user profiles that relatives populate with memories, photographs, videos and life stories, allowing relatives to connect with loved ones in care from anywhere in the world. The staff can use this content for person-centred reminiscence therapy.
StoriiCare was founded in 2014 and has been designed to fulfil the demand for technology that aids the keeping of good records in the care sector.
The app digitises paperwork and reduces repetition, claiming to save care staff around six hours a week on average.
The system was initially intended to be a life story app solely for reminiscence but has now been adapted to improve the quality of care in the care sector.
StoriiCare has established relationships with firms in Silicon Valley and is due to enter the US market this year.
