Odessey CareAssess

OdysseyLogoOdessey CareAssess is a software package that helps carers and clinicians in care homes assess and diagnose patients.

It works on a tablet. If a resident appears unwell an assessment supported by Odyssey CareAssess is initiated. If the resident needs a GP visit or visit to hospital then a summary of the initial assessment can be sent automatically ahead of time.

A trial of Odessey CareAssess in a dementia care home in Coventry showed that staff using the system felt increasingly confident in making key decisions about a resident’s care. Results quickly showed a 75% reduction in GP call-outs; local NHS data showed a 42% reduction in hospitalisation.
