Fully Managed Introduces GrandCentral Senior Care

Fully Managed, an Associate Business Partner with CAST Focus, has launched GrandCentral Senior Care (GCs) to help senior care facilities achieve much-needed workflow automation for critical processes.
 
Powered by ServiceNow®, GCs integrates directly with PointClickCare Technologies Inc., the leading cloud-based software and electronic health record vendor for the senior care market. The solution was developed to help senior care facilities modernize and automate critical processes that support efficiency and productivity.
 
“Manual processes around user account setup are a particular pain point in the senior care sector,” Mark Scott, CEO of Fully Managed, said in a statement. “With so much movement in the industry, as well as the number of temporary workers, there is a constant need for onboarding and offboarding users, at any time of day. Providers need the flexibility and time savings that GrandCentral can provide. Manual processes just lead to delays that prevent efficiency and can cause security issues.” Business Wire reported the news.
