To augment the digital information Lifesquare can capture, Giannini said the county plans to purchase a new electronic patient care record that is being designed to work with Lifesquare's software. That way, information gathered from stickers at patient's homes would not need to be re-entered.

"It will improve our operations from a time standpoint, making us that much more available for the next call," Giannini said.

The electronic system should be in place by the end of 2012.
