Thursday 26th March 2020

The COVID-19 virus has been declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organisation( WHO). WHO are demanding that Governments take immediate action to minimise the spread of the virus, encouraging self-isolation for those who are at risk.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Checked In Care has re-configured their Connect App platform to enable a COVID-19 App to be made available to Australian Aged Care Providers free of charge. This provides the Clients, Staff and Families of Aged Care Providers with up to date information, access to medical resources and advice, and the ability to access products and services if they were to self-isolate. 20,000 Staff, Residents and Families have already taken up the offer to move to our free COVID-19 App.

Available on any smart device from either the Google or iOS app stores, the COVID-19 App provides:

  • Access to validated information
  • Key Information from the Aged Care Provider
  • Broadcast messages, notifications and updates
  • Telehealth / access to GPs and medical experts
  • Ability to stay connected with friends and families, and automated updates to families
  • Shopping – Links to purchase online products and services

The COVID-19 App is also available for Government Departments to use to communicate with the broader public, especially those at risk. (Subject to fees)

Checked In Care, via its Connect App platform, has been providing direct, transparent and dynamic information for clients, staff and families of the Australian Aged Care sector since 2015. The Connect App has helped to reduce family stress levels, as they have up to date information on their loved one’s health status.
