In order to help citizens who have been unlucky or fared badly in life, municipal social services need reliable and safe tools. Alcosystems CarePLAN offers a comprehensive solution that enables flexibility while facilitating the work of probation officers.
The road to recovery is based on trust and confidence between the caregiver and the caretaker. Alcosystems CarePLAN enables recovery centers to monitor the patients sobriety in a non-intrusive and responsible way while being able to offer support and advice from a distance, e.g. during permissions and holidays.
Readapting to society can be difficult for inmates with addictions. During the recovery phase, the risk of relapse is always higher if alcohol is consumed. Monitoring sobriety when an inmate is on leave is therefore necessary for parole conditions to be met. Alcosystems CarePLAN offers safe, secure and easy to use monitoring functions which enhance the recovery treatment and a shoot at a new life.
Single user option
The single user option is for remote testing in cases when the patient is not physically present at the recovery center, social services clinic or at the correctional facility due to leave, permission or holidays. The patient loans an iBac Pro unit and receives a signal on their smartphone Alcosystems Pro application when a test is due. The administrator can choose to schedule a time for a test or send a random call to test.
Hand out separate iBac Pro units to your patients. This small and portable unit is carried with the user and is connected wirelessly to the users smartphone via the smartphone application.
The group option is for tests on location. An iBac Pro unit is connected to a computer or tablet at the recovery center/clinic/correctional facility, making this the “testing station”. When the user is present, they go to the testing station to perform the test at a scheduled time. If the test is at a random time, the administrator sends a call to test via SMS to the user’s phone.
Connect a stationary device (PC, tablet) to a single Alcosystems Pro Unit. When testing is due, the user/patient needs to be at this stationary unit in order to perform a test.
When a recovery center patient goes on leave for a few days, they bring the Alcosystems Pro Unit with them (since a precondition for leave from recovery centers is proof of sobriety). If a pre-scheduled test is to take place at e.g. 8 am, the user has 1 hour to perform the test, otherwise, the administrator will be alerted.
An administrator can choose to send a call to test at any given time to a patient on leave.
The administrator creates and handles user profiles.Two separate administrator levels (Super-Administrator, Administrator) allow for intact integrity and control of sensitive data. The levels can be adjusted according to the organization’s needs. All testing and profile data in the back-end system is saved and logged in the cloud. The super administrator(s) are the only ones with full access to all data.
The administrator can also create individual programs for each respective user to track test results over time, depending on whether the user should give scheduled or randomized tests. In the back-end configurations, the administrator can:
- Confirm the identification of the user through colour-coded ID photo
- Follow the testing procedure in real time
- Communicate with the user via text chat
- Receive test results and pertinent data in real time
- Get compiled data about a user’s profile, test history, and development over time
- Take notes on user mindset in connection with testing procedure for future reference (in order to provide better preventive measures)
Alcosystems Pro Units need occasional calibration to ensure optimal performance (after 500 tests or 1 year after the start of use, whichever comes first). Use our calibration support service to send the unit(s) to Alcosystems in order to have them calibrated. The service takes approximately 7 days after we receive your unit(s). Support is included in the service plans.
How to use CarePLAN in 5 steps - Single user
1. User receives signal to test on their smartphone application
2. User opens the iBac Pro Application on their smartphone and connects via Bluetooth to the iBac Pro Unit
3. User follows the instructions in the application and performs test (photo ID verification is taken in the application before test to ensure that the right user is taking the test)
4. Depending on configurations decided by the administrator, the user receives
a) the rest result directly in the application (blood alcohol content level) or
b) a message saying that the test has been completed
5. The administrator receives confirmation that the photo ID was correct and the test result. Only authorized administrators have access to this information.
An accurate test cannot be performed directly after consuming alcohol. If the user has consumed alcohol before a test, he/she must rinse their mouth with water and wait at least 20 minutes before performing the test, otherwise, the result will be false.
