Data for the provider AND the well-being of staff and service users
In the care sector, there is an increasing focus on providers documenting the level of care they provide. As the number of recordings increases so does the potential amount of data.

The benefits of documentation in your care service
While it is a lawful requirement to provide documentation for the care you provide in your care service or nursing home, this documentation can be used as more than just evidence of the actions you have taken. Naturally, the importance of documentation in healthcare or in aged care facilities will always be important, so the potential for using the documentation more proactively comes from the way your entire organisation is set up to deal with the documentation. Is it done strictly as a way of covering your back only due to lawful requirements?
