CareZone, a company that develops a solution designed to host communities that share personal information securely, released a new calendar component as part of its offering. The company started out just as social platforms took off, with the purpose of “applying technology to human problems.” CareZone is a solution that relies on a cloud infrastructure, so individuals can store and manage private information while staying connected to their families and caregivers.
Placed outside of other calendars, the CareZone Calendar is shareable with family and helpers. Key functionality includes the scheduling of one-off appointments as well as recurring appointments (e.g., a weekly speech therapy session), assigning appointments to helpers, and asking helpers to volunteer. Also, by allowing a person’s community to view items that have yet to be assigned, the solution can facilitate the caregiving flow. For example, if a patient needs to receive medication at home on a certain day, a helper or family member can claim that task.
The announcement mentions iPhone and mobile site support for future releases.
