We are Q to 007

All heroes need a bulletproof toolkit

At Sekoia, we see ourselves as Q to the 007s that are the frontline staff. We believe they are heroes in their own right, and as such, they need a bulletproof toolkit. A toolkit we aim to provide for them. If using Sekoia frees up time for care, then we have succeeded.

Ultimately, the main purpose of Sekoia is to enable care. And without understanding the context of the care workers actually using our technology, that cannot be achieved.

Developing digital care planning for Sekoia is ultimately about people. And their work needs. So we translate people's needs into digital solutions, which determines our ability to get things right.

Our team

As with everything else we try to do, enabling care is the central mantra for us internally as well.

We have come a long way since we were social care illiterates. In fact, 30 % of the people working at Sekoia has a background in health and social care – from nurses to registered managers. While we may have different backgrounds our internal mantra of enabling care gathers us on a simple mission. Acting as our beacon. The thing we’ve set out to do. Enabling Care.

 

 

Where it all began

Sekoia was founded by a group of social care illiterates in 2011. Eager to understand how to make a difference in a stalemate industry. Literally, we were looking at the health and social care landscape and ultimately found that so much funding and innovation was targeted hospitals. And care services, well, they remained the same – with regards to technology at least. 

We shadowed care workers in care- and nursing homes to truly understand the challenges they face on an everyday basis. We were blown away by the dedication and commitment shown by the care workers. The goal was not to find an academic lesson in how to co-design an IT system, but to create a meaningful difference. As amateurs posing the most unusual questions to always understand “why are you doing this?” or “what would make your job easier right now?”. Those in-the-moment chats with dedicated care professionals became how Sekoia was developed in its’ first version.

Why the name Sekoia?

We named ourselves after the gigantic Californian Sequoia tree. The Sequoia tree is one of the largest organisms on the planet and its giant trunk acts as an unwavering support system for all the branches on the tree.

Likewise, our goal is to be the backbone (tree trunk if you will) of your care home and provide the foundation for you to have more time and resources to provide care to the service-users.
