Most people would agree that whilst many other sectors are digitally savvy, the care sector is slightly creeping behind. It’s of no wonder that the CEO of Care England, Martin Green, recently stated: The new government must play its own role in the development of policies aimed at increasing the digital maturity of the social care sector.
It is clear that not much investment has gone into encouraging care providers to use technology as part of their service offering. Why are care staff still using written care plans when an online care plan would be far more effective, timely and responsive? CQC acknowledge how technology can help and improve person-centred care when assessing care homes against the five key principles.
Despite stating the obvious, many care providers still are apprehensive about investing in software. The pros of using software to manage your care home far outweigh the cons. You can give your staff the best environment in which to provide the best quality care possible with e-MAR, automated charts, customized care plans and much more.
In a world where everything is becoming automated, digital and transformative, it makes perfect sense to adopt technology to improve care quality right? To find out how we help clients improve person-centred care, please visit our website.
