Eau Claire, WI, Nov 30, 2021 – Smartcare Software, Inc., provider of a complete cloud-based digital solution for home care providers, announced today that it is one of the five finalists in the health technology category for the Wisconsin Inno Fire award based on the company’s work in applying gamification principles and machine learning to solve the problem of caregiver retention and hiring.
Each year, Wisconsin Inno, a sister publication of the Milwaukee Business Journal, recognizes companies and organizations who have been fantastic innovators across the state and are “on fire.” After profiling startups, growing companies, and individuals throughout the year, and reviewing inbound nominations, the Inno staff determines who will be on the Fire list, grouped into categories.
“We’re honored to receive this recognition for our work towards solving the critical caregiver shortage in home care,” said Scott Zielski, CEO of Smartcare Software. “By applying technology to the challenge of hiring and retaining caregiver staff, we’re making it possible for providers to advance the delivery of home care services to the nation’s aging population. The Smartcare platform addresses all aspects of the caregiver shortage – from attracting and hiring talented caregivers through retaining them with a comprehensive Caregiver Rewards and Retention toolset.”
Smartcare’s ENGAGE applicant management tool is a comprehensive hiring platform designed to help home care providers hire top caregivers quickly. Providers can move candidates quickly through the stages of their hiring process while keeping all information online and organized. Smartcare’s ENGAGE tool also lets users automate email and text communications at every hiring stage. Consistent communication while hiring enhances caregiver candidates’ interest level and decreases applicant dropout – all while helping to build an employer brand to attract and hire top talent and achieve agency success.
In Smartcare’s Caregiver Retention system, a unique Caregiver Rewards system keeps caregivers connected and motivated by allowing agencies to offer tailored rewards for meeting ideal performance criteria, like high patient satisfaction results. In addition, mobile point-of-care apps and industry-leading workflows allow home care providers to achieve the highest engagement experience levels in the market. Using Smartcare, home care providers ranging from independent agencies to national home care provider networks have unlocked the solution to caregiver engagement and retention while solving a wide range of operational challenges.
“The state of Wisconsin has a strong history of innovation and leadership in healthcare technology. We look forward to continuing to carry on the state tradition of innovating healthcare,” said Zielski.
