Cura debunks these myths and explains why technology is not as challenging as it seems

Myth #1: Technology will take over caregiving, leaving human caregivers jobless.

The need for human touch to be digitally supported has taken on a more challenging dimension as staff shortages and high vacancy rates are significantly impacting the quality of care. Digital solutions such as Cura are not designed to replace caregivers but rather to empower them.

Myth #2: Technology is extremely difficult to implement

We understand the perception that often hinders the adoption of technology but unlike other digital solutions, Cura is designed to be highly intuitive and user-friendly and is committed to delivering a seamless implementation process. By choosing the right digital system, leveraging training and support resources, and adopting a change management approach, care providers can reap the enormous benefits that technology offers.

Cura makes technology work for you, not the other way around.

Myth #3: Technology is not cost-effective

While the initial costs associated with going digital can be a concern, it is important to consider the long-term benefits, leading to significant cost savings over time. Cura, for example, is a proactive tool that provides numerous benefits, such as savings in time and cost, a boost to productivity, and ultimately, improved outcomes.

Myth #4: Technology is only for large facilities

It is not just the large homes that benefit from going digital. Cura supports all types and sizes, whether that be a small family-run care home, a larger care provider, end-of-life care, or a specialised care provider to service users with more challenging care requirements such as children with wide-ranging care needs, dementia, learning difficulties, autism, mental health, end-of-life, challenging behaviour, substance abuse and brain injury.

Myth #5: Technology is a learning labyrinth

The word “technology” often elicits fear, particularly in senior caregivers and staff who may be intimidated due to a lack of familiarity. You will be amazed at how a graduated, tailored for the needs of care givers, coupled with intuitive, simple-to-use technology such as Cura, leaves them enthused about handling some of the major challenges they encounter day in and day out. Supported by the kind of training that sensitively imparts the skills required, you will be surprised by how simple it is to go digital.

Myth #6: Technology compromises privacy and security

Concerns about data privacy and security are paramount, especially when entrusting sensitive information to care technology. At Cura, we adhere to the security standards laid down by the NHS (National Health Service).

Cura servers are hosted by the world’s most secure site – Microsoft’s Azure platform. Our servers are also backed up daily.
