AUTOMATED INSPECTION OF THE CARRIED OUT CARE
PREVENTING DOUBTS AND INEFFICIENCIES
BASIS FOR ACCURATE BILLING
MONITORING OF CARE TAKER´S ACTIVITIES
HOW IT WORKS?
1. Identification of the care taker/worker
Each worker receives a unique KOS sensor and their working hours start by reading the chip at the sensor.
Each route points are placed at homes of the clients. The chips are marked for Arrival and Departure. The recording of the date and time in the memory is done by reading the chip at the sensor. The worker will visit the clients in the given order and time limit. A successful reading of each point is confirmed with a visual and sound signal.
3. Transfer of data to the collection data chip
The need for data transfer is signaled before the sensor reaches its full memory capacity by two beeps and two flashes. The data chip is used for collecting up 1000 records from the sensor (works similar to a thumb drive). Data chips are used in order to evaluate the records without the need to take the sensor away from the workers and interruption of their work.
4. Transfer of the route records into the PC and its evaluation
The data collected from the sensors that carry individual data chip records are transferred to the PC with installed WSOK software using an adaptor. Data from the data chip are transferred into the software and evaluated according to the set criteria. The final report includes a list of visits showing the correctness of the visits. Statements can be generated and evaluation can be provided to clients or serve as basis for invoicing.
The sensor will assign a chip code with timestamp and store it in its memory. Sensor capacities range from 500 to 8000 events (1 = 1 chip load event).
The calculation of the appropriate sensor capacities: number of control points * number of patrols per day * period – the number of days – reading data chip).
Does not contain control elements and thanks to metallic body is very resistant to rough handling.
Identification chips are used as control points for tours and rounds. It is possible to stick to the surface using a two-component epoxy adhesive, or using a plastic case and a screw.
Care taker´s chips are used to differentiate data in the sensor. It serves as a marker thanks to which the software can automatically differentiate specific patrols of each care taker. This chip is necessary for correct evaluation of visits.
Data chips contain a memory and a battery. They work similar to a thumb drive. Attaching data chip to the sensor the data chip reads 1,000 events, which are then transferred to a PC via an adapter. For easier recognition of chips, the data chips are delivered with a red key fob.
Data chips can set the time in sensors or copy the data without their removal from the sensors (for instance, to control the inspection).
Adapter for PC connectivity
The adapter is used to communicate between the PC and chips. The adapter downloads data, sets the chip functions as a transfer, copy or time data chip. The adapter is used as a hardware key for the WSOK program. This means that for each unique adapter number exists a unique license code for evaluation software.
The adapter is made for USB port only.
