Heather Shantora at Accelerate Summit 2017

InnoCare CEO Heather Shantora reveals launch of new feature at Accelerate Summit

Heather Shantora was the keynote speaker at the Clinic Accelerate Business Summit in Toronto, Ontario earlier this month. The sold-out event was the first of its kind in Canada bringing together industry experts and practicing rehabilitation professionals focused on business growth, process improvements and identifying efficiencies.

Shantora spoke to clinic owners from across Canada about the role of technology in improving patient care and optimising clinic operations. Speaking with her significant experience in the allied healthcare sector, Shantora shared examples of operational successes achieved at the helm of pt Health with the implementation of InnoCare Software.

InnoCare Software has provided 360-degree visibility on clinic operations that has led to actionable data in making intelligent business decisions. One such action is improving patient visit averages (PVA) with the development of InnoCare Engage, an automated email communication tool integrated with Charting+.  Shantora explained how through Engage, patients receive trigger based and personalised emails at specific time intervals during the patient’s treatment journey. Engage not only helps clinicians maintain relationships to prevent patient “fall-off” but the tool can also recommend products and cross refer clinic services to improve clinic revenue.

InnoCare will be launching Engage in the next few weeks. “InnoCare Engage will simplify patient communication, relationship management and grow clinic revenue”, explained Shantora, “Busy clinicians will have peace of mind with the click of a button”.

Fleet platform with integrated 3G camera

Hubio Fleet announces new upgrades to vehicle tracking platform

Unveiling at the Commercial Vehicle Show at the NEC, Birmingham this week, Hubio Fleet showcases the addition of an integrated 3G camera, CAN Bus technology and mobile app to their offering. As well as fuel savings and measuring driver behaviour, fleet managers can now take advantage of real-time crash and incident notification, simplifying the insurance claims process.

The new 3G camera enables fleet manager and operators to watch video footage within minutes of a driving incident occurring, allowing immediate claim intervention with first notification of loss (FNOL), helping to minimise claims and protect drivers.

In addition, Hubio Fleet has also introduced a mobile phone app that both fleet managers and drivers can use. The app gives fleet managers full visibility of their vehicles and drivers from anywhere with mobile signal. Meanwhile the driver version of the app allows drivers to monitor themselves, giving them the opportunity to improve their driving performance without needing direct intervention from the fleet manager.

Hubio Fleet’s General Manager Russell Olive says:

“We have worked hard to significantly enhance and add features that we think will dramatically benefit fleet managers.

The addition of the camera not only helps understand driving incidents, but the footage can also be used in conjunction with harsh driving alerts allowing fleet managers to coach drivers that are putting the fleet at risk.

Add to that the powerful reporting insights and the option of the CAN Bus Black Box and fleet managers really do now have a powerful and easy-to-use way of getting the best from their fleets and their drivers.”

Hubio Fleet is exhibiting at the Commercial Vehicle Show at the NEC from 25th – 27th April 2017.
