Simplified care documentation and care planning
We rely on the Omaha System because it helps you to describe care settings briefly, precisely and at the same time individually with selection lists and text modules. This leaves you more time for the relationships to your clients while enabling the team to learn from each other's documented experience.
Promoting autonomy and well-being for recipients of care
We want to support you systematically to improve or maintain the independence and health of your clients. You will see progress and regressions at a glance, enabling you to check the effectiveness of care interventions and adapt them to your client's needs.

We are currently testing and improving the app until the release of the first version. If you would already like to use it productively and contribute with your feedback to the improvement, please contact us directly to participate in our beta test phase.Demo ausprobieren
Self-organisation for care teams and a holistic approach
We want to simplify handovers and exchange of information with colleagues about care settings for you, making all important information immediately and clearly recognizable. Our collaborative app is specifically designed for teamwork to encourage collaboration rather than hierarchy.
Listening to the needs of nurses and an intuitive user interface
We want to think and develop CoopCare from the perspective of care professionals, to make the app super useful and easy to use in everyday care. Therefore your feedback is essential and will motivate us to increasingly adapt the app to the needs of care workers.
The Omaha system is a classification system for the entire care process, including assessment, planning and evaluation. It offers a flexible, multi-disciplinary approach and is therefore suitable for a wide range of nursing professions. It consists of three components or schemes that are applied in a six-phase nursing process:
The effectiveness and reliability of the Omaha System has been examined and confirmed in several scientific studies. Its terms, definitions and codes exist in the public domain, therefore it can be used without license fees. It was developed between 1975 and 1993 on the initiative of the Visiting Nurse Association of Omaha.
A detailed explanation with several case studies can be found on the official website of the Omaha System.
In the first phase, we focused on care documentation, care planning, evaluation and community care for teams using the Omaha System. Next, we are working on integrating other important features into the app that are currently missing. These include:
We strive to consistently implement self-organization, wholeness and purpose in our own work methods as well. For the further development and operation of CoopCare, we want to set up a cooperative; in other words a company that is jointly owned and democratically self-governed by the employees.
We plan to offer the hosting of servers for data synchronization, the provision of the app and support as a service for a monthly fee. At the moment we can’t give any information about the amount. We want to find a pricing model that is both affordable and fair for care providers, while also ensuring a reliable service including support and continuous enhancement of CoopCare.
At the same time we have published CoopCare under the open source license AGPL. In doing so, we are committed to a culture of cooperation, mutual learning and innovation.
This means that everybody can not only review and improve the source code of the software, but also operate their own CoopCare servers. In this case as well, we welcome regular financial contributions that help us to further advance the development of CoopCare and thus benefit all users.
There is also the possibility to order specific extensions of the software. Please contact us for your request.
No. Although we have focused on the requirements of home care services until now, the Omaha System is versatile enough to be used in many areas of care work: it can be used for all forms of nursing, midwifery, social work or community health care, just to name a few.
You can try our demo version to find out if CoopCare would also be a benefit for your professional domain. If you miss important features, we are curious to learn from your feedback and the requirements of your domain.
The CoopCare user interface is currently translated into English and German. At the same time, we depend on the availability of an official translation of the Omaha System for each language. We are looking forward to cooperations and contacts to promote the translation into further languages!
