This is the conclusion reached by Orton Manor Nursing Home after choosing Sekoia as their digital care planning tool.
“I have seen measurable return on investment for me, I have seen significant changes in families and residents noticing much greater time that is allowed in direct contact from carers and service-users.”

Easy to use
Sekoia’s most important feature is how user-friendly it is. Together with its touch-screen technology and range of apps, Sekoia makes it easy for any carer to complete basic documentation tasks or access residents care records. This is also the reason why Orton Manor chose Sekoia among the many suppliers of digital solutions. Director Shahzada Ahmed lets us in on his thoughts on going “paperless”:
“I wanted something more, something that would integrate the different platforms into something that would be much more user-friendly, so that my carers were using the technology to be able to deliver a much higher standard of care, to give more care time, to free their time up.”
Sekoia has empowered the carers delivering more personalised efforts. Shahzada Ahmed has noticed the significant impact Sekoia has had on the entire organisation. The results include fewer mistakes:
“I have seen a measurable 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 that is allowed in direct contact from carers and service-users without the need for duplicating paperwork.”
Tailored to care staff needs
Sekoia provides Orton Manor with an overview of the staff's to-do lists and enables an improved day-to-day management. According to registered manager Gemma Broth not only the management feels good about digitising:
“All staff I have spoken to are greatly looking forward to when more applications are introduced. Once again thank you all so much.”

The solution from Sekoia consists of touch screens with customised apps that provide access to all the information needed in the care situation, as opposed to retrieving the information back in the office.
