As human beings are becoming more reliant on technology. Mobile and tablets have taken over almost every aspect of our life and the health industry is not alien to these as well. A problem faced by the majority population has dedicated a chunk of their time taking care of their elderly. This can cause unnecessary complexity in both individuals’ life. A survey has revealed that nearly 92% of adults prefer to be treated in the comfort of their own homes rather than a nursing home or hospital. Home care service comprises professional assistance that helps an elderly or someone with a medical condition.In the comfort of their home, they are provided short-term or long-term services.

Client, a leading Home – Care service is committed to make their services available to their locality. Hiring a qualified care provider is not easy and is what most families are looking for. Home-care Service application could be the solution to this. Our client required a holistic app from finding to hiring and paying for care-taking services in a single application.
Our client’s existing architecture involved user profiles, task management, feedback and payment services with a complicated manual data processing. It is a quite complex process to schedule the time and location for each visit and maintaining them manually. A customer needed to know exactly who’s coming, when they arrive and when they leave. The application should handle the payment gateways and also store feedback after each visit.
Centizen came up with a mobile application that can access database to record and provide these information. The user can make a request to select the type of care/service he would like to get. Some services include medication reminders, daily needs, home supplies or even everyday errands. After the request is submitted, the app matches the user’s requirements to relevant caregivers by the rating systems.
For Geo-location tracking purposes, our developers integrated the app with Google Maps Service. With the help of this application, the user can know the exact location. For Payment Service, the app was integrated with Stripe Payment Service, a secured payment gateway.
Centizen’s team developed the application in a way that lets the Home Care Service Application administrator keep an eye on and manage or configure clients’ requests, gaining statistics on app usage and payment flow.The application is flexible and designed to have a interactive interface.
