Mobile Monitoring Solution From Advanced Health & Care Using GENTAG NFC Cell Phones To Be Deployed In The UK

ASHFORD, England and WASHINGTON, May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading supplier of IT systems for the care industry, Advanced Health & Care (Advanced) and GENTAG, Inc. are pleased to announce the market launch of a fully integrated wireless Near Field Communications (NFC) feature cell phone, to remotely monitor care worker visits in private homes. 4,000 GENTAG GT-601v2 NFC phones have already been deployed in the UK since June 2012.

The wireless kit uses Advanced's iConnect software, integrated with GENTAG's GT-601v2 NFC feature cell phone, to allow real-time task lists and data to care workers via their mobile phones and records their actual arrival and departure times at customers' homes using NFC technology. The need for care workers to carry around paper rosters showing where they need to be and when has been eliminated using iConnect and customers no longer need to sign pieces of paper to prove care workers' attendance at appointments.

Applications of the iConnect software include individual care worker certifications, time stamps and service calls. In the future, other customized NFC features will be added such as remote medication monitoring, billing, etc.

Jim Chase, Managing Director of Advanced Health & Care says, "As the leading mobile workforce management software for care, we partnered with GENTAG because of their expertise in the highly specialized field of NFC technology, and their ability to translate the field requirements of our care provider customers into deliverable product".

"This means we are able to deliver simple, cost effective and robust cell phones married with NFC technology that are specifically designed to support our iConnect product. Thus the GENTAG and iConnect delivers a great unified package for care providers".

The joint technology is immediately available for deployment worldwide subject to individual country certifications.
