UK care homes are very busy and keeping up can be difficult. A new kind of digital care planning creates a calmer and more efficient atmosphere by freeing up staff time for more resident care.
More time for care
Among the new generation electronic care planning solutions is Danish originate Sekoia, whose digital tool for the care sector is designed to free up time for care. The solution consists of touch screens with customised apps that provide access to all the information needed, right where it is needed. The result is enhanced care, fewer mistakes and greater job satisfaction.
Tailored to care home staff
Sekoia provides the care home professionals with an overview of their daily tasks and enables an improved day-to-day management. Recording health data, sharing information and logging observations, all happens at the touch of a button. More than 30 different apps are put together per care home requirements, to ease the workflow and ensure real person-centred care.
“We can now deliver the care and spend time with the residents, which is what everyone of us goes into care for” Registered Manager, Gemma Broth (Orton Manor Nursing Home)
User-friendliness above all
Like any other longer lasting tool, Sekoia has been developed and designed to ensure that everyone can use it – without a manual and with no pre-requisite of technical know-how. Specialist implementation crew helps carers to get up and running and are always on hand to provide service and support. Sekoia users are typically up and running within short time handling everything themselves; smoothly and efficiently.
“I have seen measureable return on investment for me, I have held resident meetings, family meetings and I have seen significant changes in families and residents noticing much greater time allowed in direct contact from carers and service-users without the need for duplicating paperwork” Director, Shahzada Ahmed (Orton Manor Nursing Home)
