We are excited to announce that Interior Health Home Support scheduling is in the process of upgrading to a modernized scheduling software called Procura. This will increase workplace safety while making it easier for our CHWs to get the information they need when they need it. That includes updates to schedules, offers of shifts, automated mileage claims and flowsheets, hazard notifications all in real time. One of the biggest perks is that we are providing iPhones to ALL of our CHWs that work more than 8 hours/week with the option to upgrade for personal use at a cost of only $25/month! This will be rolling out to each of our Home Support offices over the rest of the year.
