Why digital systems are vital for smaller care homes

Cura Systems, Digital Care Home SoftwareIt's not just the large homes that benefit from going digital. Taking away wasted time on paperwork will make your care time so much more productive, a digital platform can introduce greater efficiency, along with the freedom to spend more time delivering excellent services.

Care homes that introduce a digital system quickly benefit from results such as boosted productivity, improved communications, and better outcomes for residents. A digital platform can eliminate a large amount of time-consuming paperwork while making compliance with care standards easier and providing tools to measure performance. With a digital system it’s easy to demonstrate quality of care and improve CQC ratings.

Competitive edge

Maintaining a competitive advantage is critical for the smaller care home. An intelligently modern digital care planning system creates a platform that enables a care facility to be nimble and adaptive when compared with bigger, slower rivals. An intricate array of complex tasks underpin a successful care home, and a versatile digital system allows integration of every aspect, evolving and developing with changing demands while streamlining services.

Some care home staff have reservations about using digital technology, but a well designed, intuitive system can make their job easier. Supported by the kind of training that sensitively imparts the skills required, many care workers may be surprised by how simple it is to go digital. Voice recognition technology can eliminate the need to take or type out notes, saving hours of laborious and unproductive labour, and resulting in faster, more accurate records. Rapid reporting, effortless data trails and easy mobile care monitoring of administration and electronic care planning are just some of the other benefits of a digital care home system.

Modern and intuitive

Digital care planning systems can also analyse information and provide alerts along with easy transfer of data at the end of a shift. An effective system is one that is tailored to the specific needs of the care facility, and flexible modules can be customised not just to the individual character of smaller care homes, but to individual residents themselves. When the right system is implemented, the flow of information is enhanced, saving time and energy. Digital care planning systems provide instant overviews of progress across markers ranging from medication to maintenance, and enhance every sector of resident care.
