Log my Care, a UK-based provider of an app-based software for managing social care delivery, secured £600k in new early-stage funding.
RYSE Asset Management made the investment along with other unnamed backers, bringing the total raised to date be the company to £1m.
The company intends to use the funds to build more tools to digitalize and streamline social care, as well as expand its user base to reach thousands of care services.
Led by Sam Hussain, Founder, Log my Care provides a cloud-based care planning software platform that enables care homes to take all their admin and planning online. The app is in use across hundreds of care services by thousands of carers, who in total have recorded nearly 30 million care logs.
In response to the pandemic, the Log my Care team rapidly developed tools to support front-line workers in the social care sector. A real-time COVID-19 symptom tracking tool helps monitor and detect early symptoms, alerting Care Managers and displaying critical information on a simple dashboard. A track-and-trace tool enables users to create clusters of carers and service users that are easier to monitor. If a person starts showing Coronavirus symptoms, it is then easy to identify those most at risk and who need to be isolated and tested. The core system of Log my Care and the tools developed in response to COVID-19 are free to use for all registered UK care homes and care agencies. Two optional premium modules with enhanced features are available for a monthly subscription.
