We’ve been approached with several creative ideas of how we can deploy Care View in cities. Based on our current operation in three city regions, we’ve identified the following process that can make an immediate, meaningful impact:
If you have staff or volunteers on the ground, they can ‘App Tap’ to add pins to indicate the streets they are visiting. Every time they add a pin, they can also add the nature of the request they are responding to. For example: delivering groceries. Care View prevents users from adding any personal identifiable information.
This process can highlight areas across the city that have vulnerable populations, such as older people or newly arrived migrants, with potential unmet needs. You can use these hotspots to plan further outreach and avoid duplication, especially if you have a multi-agency setup. In follow-up visits, users can update the hotspot. As it changes intensity you can see if your intervention is making a difference.
We’ve done the maths and we can offer a free four-month subscription to a small number of cities. There will be a setup cost that goes directly to cover technical operations.
For each city deployment, you can add up to 150 users. These could be vetted public and third sector professionals, postal workers or volunteers. Care View cannot be used by other members of the public. We’ll also need to appoint an administrator for each city. This could be someone from the city council or a charity. Their main role is to add users to the platform.
