Travel Calculations and Management
Home care work will always involve travelling, and CarePlanner has been built to take account of the calculations involved in this.
CarePlanner has inbuilt digital mapping for the most accurate calculation of times and suggested routes – even factoring in live traffic updates.
The rostering system gives you visual warnings if you schedule without allowing sufficient travel time, and lets you quickly fix the issues via drag and drop.
Mileage payments can be made for time or distance travelled, after a given amount of miles or treating the office as a home location.

Taking Account of Distance in Carer Recommendations
If you ask the system to recommend a care worker for an appointment, it will automatically take account of staff locations and the location of the service user in prioritising its suggestions.
If the care worker is about to start a day’s work, it will use either their home address or the office. If they are already mid-way through a run of appointments, the system will automatically choose the preceding appointment.
“We constantly have new referrals, whilst other patients pass away or need to increase their number of visits at very short notice. Frankly, I don’t know how we’d cope without CarePlanner “
