Halden Heights Care Community in Kent said goodbye to their time-consuming paper documentation at the end of 2018. Only to say hello to digital care planning. With Sekoia at hand, the care workers are now evidencing service delivery in a smooth and less demanding way.
Before implementing Sekoia, the nursing home Quinton House near Stratford upon Avon printed 30,000 sheets of paper each month. That all changed when they decided to implement Sekoia in the fall of 2017. One year down the road Quinton House is saving 1,5 hours per care worker per shift...
Orton Manor Nursing Home, just outside Birmingham in Water Orton, has taken 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. And the outcome is obvious. They have now gone from "Requires improvement" to "Good" in their latest inspection report.
Frösunda Omsorg is a value-driven company. As such, staff in their care homes work from the same set of values. In essence, it is all about creating value for the residents. To such an extend that residents here are called customers, because, in the end, they are the ones who pay. This central notion is what they have coined the "Frösunda Idea".
The Meta Mary home in the Region of Southern Denmark is a specialised dementia nursing home. The residents are people with a care need that wish to spend their old age in a safe place of well-being. There are benches and outdoor activities take place year-round. In a way, this is very characteristic of the Meta Mary home, and the rest of the Mary homes. Here, the focus is on "living – your whole life".
In Denmark a range of LD care homes are seeing a great side effect to being digital: they are using less agency staff, and those that do get involved know more precisely what to do.
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.
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 that project manager Ninette Hansson focuses on, when explaining why they have digitised their care planning. The first being recruitment of new staff to a more attractive workplace, the second being staff experiencing far too many office and admin hours.
