"Now, caregivers can instantly provide their updates in Deputy’s News Feed feature and the new shift can read them directly upon arrival – eliminating the need for any overlap. This, in turn, creates a better culture for caregivers and saves us approximately $30-$36 a day or $11,000 – $13,000 each year."
