NFC phone for care workers goes worldwide

Gentag GT-601v2

Mobile healthcare specialist Gentag and IT systems supplier Advanced Health & Care have announced the worldwide availability of an NFC phone designed to be used for monitoring home visits made by care workers.

The Gentag GT-601v2 with Advanced’s iConnect software allows real-time task lists to be sent to care workers and also record their arrival and departure times at a patient’s home.

Some 4,000 GT-601v2s have already been deployed in the UK but now the phone and service is available globally with other customised features such as remote medication monitoring and billing in the pipeline for future development, says Advanced.

“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,” says managing director Jim Chase.

“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.”
