CARMEL, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – Two Indiana companies are working to increase employee and resident safety with software that tracks and monitors COVID-19 testing within senior housing facilities. Carmel-based Leaf Software Solutions says it is developing a COVID-19 testing solution for Bloomington-based CarDon & Associates Inc.

CarDon, which owns and operates over 20 senior housing communities in the Midwest, says it needed to ensure the safety of its residents and associates by employing a comprehensive testing, tracking, monitoring, and compliance solution.

“CarDon offered us the opportunity to do what we do best – listen, consult, evaluate, and create a best-in-class solution to add value while meeting a true business need,” said Chad Hankinson, Leaf Software Solutions president.

Utilizing the Microsoft Power Platform, Leaf says its developers created a solution that could be repurposed and customized to add value to other businesses seeking to track any process, such as policy and procedure testing, compliance, and skills testing.

Tom McClelland, executive director of IT for CarDon said, “From the start, our focus has been on leveraging the best technology to keep our associates and residents safe. We feel we accomplished that by partnering with Leaf.”

CarDon says it will utilize the testing solution features, including the executive dashboard, individual compliance and monitoring, test tracking, system generated alerts and reminders, 360-degree views, as well as field level auditing.
