Home Care

Nokia Field Force Solution for Home Care is an easy-to-use Solution providing accurate real-time visibility on your care process and delivered care. It utilizes RFID technology enabling simple “touch-and-record” functionality at the point of care. It consists of RFID enabled Nokia phones and web-based application to manage, view, report, and exchange the care process-related information. Organizations in the home care sector are benefiting from the Solution. With this cost-effective package care providers are improving their quality of service while streamlining procedures – realizing significant cost savings in the process, and improving the quality of service for their clients.


Nokia Field Force Solution for Home Care can be tailored to interface with your Care Planning, Scheduling, and Administrative systems to avoid duplicated information management on top of your existing back-end solutions, and to optimize your billing and payroll processes.

  • Improved management of care process quality and efficiency
  • Real-time visibility to care delivery process and employee activity
  • Instant access to information on home care visits, reported real-time from the point-of-care
  • Elimination of manual reporting, reconciliation, and transcription of field information
  • Reduced administration and reporting costs

Benefits are therefore realized centrally, as information and reports from the field can be fed into planning, billing, customer reporting and payroll systems and procedures.
