BookJane Partners with the Ontario Long Term Care Association to Unleash its Innovative Technologies to Address the Staffing Crisis and Improve Seniors’ Care
The partnership will drive innovative solutions in Ontario’s long term care and senior living sector as COVID-19 exacerbates human resources challenges
TORONTO, January 28th, 2021 --- BookJane, a technology platform that helps long term care (LTC) and senior living facilities find, schedule and communicate with staff, has partnered with the Ontario Long Term Care Association (OLTCA) to address the staffing crisis and improve seniors’ care in Ontario. As a partner, BookJane will continue to support OLTCA by exemplifying how its innovative technology can be used by Ontario long term care and senior living organizations to better mobilize, engage and retain staff.
BookJane is helping to solve the acute staffing challenges faced by LTC and senior living organizations, so that they can focus on what matters most: caring for their senior residents. J360, BookJane’s all-in-one platform for workforce scheduling, allows LTC and senior living facilities to fill shifts, schedule and communicate with their internal or agency staff, or find extra staff resources with BookJane’s marketplace of on-demand healthcare professionals. By partnering with the OLTCA, BookJane will provide important insights into how technology can drastically reduce administration time spent, and improve shift fulfilment rates and staff retention in Ontario’s seniors’ care sector.
“The COVID-19 crisis has exposed how innovative methods are needed to tackle the staff recruitment and retainment challenges being faced by Ontario’s senior care sector”, says Curtis Khan, CEO of BookJane. “We are thrilled to partner with the OLTCA to help improve the quality of seniors’ care in Ontario and drive the use of technology in the industry forward, with our innovative J360 platform.”
“Now more than ever, the focus on innovation and technology is critical to our success in meeting the needs of our residents,” says Donna Duncan, CEO of the Ontario Long Term Care Association. “We are grateful to innovative leaders, like BookJane, whose support and partnership allow us to continue to do the vital work for our homes and build a better future for our aging communities.”
