openPASS End User Licence Agreement
PLEASE NOTE: We have prepared this End User Licence Agreement to assist you in contracting with YOUR service users. You do not have to use this agreement and may prefer your own contract, but we would ask that if you choose not to use this agreement, please make it explicitly clear to the service user that the agreement is solely between you (the care provider) and the service user. In this instance, everyLIFE’s role is limited to being the supplier of the openPASS app only.

Please note that the openPASS App is an add on service to your or your care receiver’s contract with YOUR CARE OFFICE. It gives you access to your or your care receiver’s notes and care plan under that contract, as further described in condition 2 below, and such access that is provided is therefore subject to the terms and conditions of that main contract between you or the care receiver and YOUR CARE OFFICE (the “Service”).
Pursuant to these Conditions, your care office licenses the use of the App to you on the basis of these Conditions and subject to any rules or policies applied by the operator from whose website, the End-user downloaded the App. Your care office is not selling the App to you and everyLIFE Technologies Limited remains the owner of the App at all times.

This App requires an Apple iOS or Android device with a minimum of 1GB of memory. Internet access is required for the correct functioning of the App.

The PASSsystem has proved completely intuitive to use, even for the least technical care assistant – a revelation.
My Supervisors no longer spend 65% of their time in the office typing up notes taken at assessment meetings – they do it once with the customer, and get it right from the outset. My Supervisors now spend 90% of their time out in the community – better care, improved support for care workers, and more assessments.
We saw the service had made improved use of information through the implementation of The PASSsystem for assessing the quality of the service provided, including the consistency of care provided to individuals. The PASSsystem has the potential to provide the service with a greater range of information which can be utilised for Quality Assurance. This will include outcomes and tasks completed and missed. Operational statistics will include reviews and staff supervision as well as analysis of nutritional and hydration information entered by staff.
The system reduces the time and cost of setting up care plans for patients going home from hospital by 50%. This has delivered a £20K saving to my bottom line.
By listening carefully to the care industry, everyLIFE have developed a solution that greatly helps join up the provision of customer-centred care. They are on a mission to bring the much needed technical answers to the business challenges we are all facing. I very much look forward to seeing the new functionality they have in the next release and beyond.
I implemented The PASSsystem in three weeks and my customers are already seeing the benefits in quality of care.
It’s easy to use and with the training provided, all staff like the system. Any office implementing it will save a substantial amount of supervisor time.
The whole process from initial enquiry to going live was quick, efficient and easy and the support we received from the team at everyLIFE was second to none. I would recommend PASSsystem to any care company.
A really important advance for care, The PASSsystem provides care notes and completion notes instantly so we can react immediately to missed medications and other urgent care alerts.
Easy to use, extensively tested and developed by people that understand care, The PASSsystem is unique and robust at solving the critical challenges faced by the industry.
