The Facts at Our Fingertips
Welcoming the benefits of technology in home care
The delivery of home care is changing. Technology and the ability to share and update information instantly is now set to greatly increase the efficiency of our world and with it comes a chance to spend more time on the people that matter most, our home care clients.
The recording of information is vital to the care of elderly and vulnerable, ensuring that they are receiving what they need, when and how. From social visits, to medicines and support with daily personal wellbeing, timely and accurate record keeping is crucial together with a robust review system. Yet, this all takes time. But, wherever there’s data, technology is not far behind, offering us fast processing and real-time access for far greater efficiency. This year will see us adopt PASSsystem, the digital care management system that will mean our carers will literally have all the information they need at their finger tips, together with more time to spend with those they care for.
Our carers will be able to access the PASSsystem via their Riccall Care mobile phones and tablets. For each of their clients, they will find a complete set of care records, from enquiry, assessment, medication and supported tasks to reviews. Our carers will know exactly what’s required and be able to feedback and comment. With a system of checks and balances in place, any tasks undone are flagged up quickly and any accidents or incidents managed with greater transparency, giving both carers and cared for greater peace of mind.
