Victoria, BC (May 28, 2015) – Northwood, one of the largest continuing care organizations in Eastern Canada, announced today their implementation of Procura Mobile. Northwood is a rapidly growing organization providing the full continuum of care, including Home Care, a Dementia Day Program, Community Outreach Programs, Retirement Living, Assisted Living, and 24-Hour Care, and their community programs have used the Procura Health Management System for 10 years.
Northwood is celebrating 53 years of providing care, and today serves over 6500 clients, with 1700 staff, 500 volunteers, and 600 community based programs. Their largest program is their Home Care division with over 500,000 hours of service annually. Committed to innovation and change, Northwood has been a ‘first mover’ in many areas of its business. With the implementation of Procura Mobile, Northwood is now able to maximize efficiency across the board.
Recently, Northwood found itself back in the market for a mobile solution, and made the strategic decision to move to Procura Mobile. “We’ve had a great relationship with the Procura team since day one. We always feel like a valued and important customer. Our strong relationship with Procura made our decision to move from our previous mobile solution to Procura Mobile easy. We are now able to streamline and simplify communication between our scheduling software and our mobile software, which is really going to enhance Northwood and help us expand,” stated Michele Lowe, Executive Director of Northwood’s Community.
“We have had a great partnership with Northwood and are pleased that they have implemented our Procura Mobile solution,” said Scott Overhill, CTO of Procura, “We believe that Procura Mobile will enhance Northwood’s productivity and simplify their communication process. We pride ourselves on the strength in the relationships we build with our customers and work closely with our clients to ensure Procura meets their specific needs.”
Since 2011, the Procura Mobile platform has been providing a mobile solution for home and community care providers across the globe. As the innovators in mobile, Procura continues to bring cutting edge technology that allows providers to perform their care in the home through the convenience of a mobile device. The Procura Mobile platform supports healthcare visits across a wide range of devices, form factors, and operating systems.
Through collaboration with Procura, Northwood has become a leading home care provider in Canada. Supporting each other has allowed both organizations not only to pave the way in their industry, but also to experience tremendous growth. The implementation of Procura Mobile is expected to significantly increase Northwood’s efficiency while improving processes at the point of care, which is the ultimate goal for both Northwood and Procura.
