In 2016, Orton Manor, just outside Birmingham, took a step forward onto the digital path saying goodbye to their paper records. The carers at Orton Manor faced the classic challenges of completing heaps of paperwork, instead of delivering care and spending time with the residents.
All of the publicly run care services in Odense (Denmark) are using Sekoia as their primary care planning tool. At an annual review of the care homes, management came to the conclusion that their staff was experiencing a work day of constant interruptions. With far too little time for resident care.
In 2015, the Elmelunden care home said goodbye to long paper lists and shared calendars and said hello to a new technology. Using Sekoia as its digital record keeper, the care home took up the fight against errors and inaccuracies.
Whilst it is an important legal requirement, how do you stop paper work from being a chore and still include personalised commentary of care outcomes for each resident? Using a streamlined digital workflow makes it quick and easy to record the required information, in a natural and streamlined way.
There are 2 things project manager Ninette Hansson focuses on, when explaining why they have digitised care planning. The first being recruitment of new staff to a more attractive workplace, the other being staff experiencing far too many office and admin hours.
