“We no longer have to run back and forth to the offices or workstations, to sign off on paperwork or access information about the individual.”

One of Sweden's largest not-for-profit providers has seen massive changes since implementing Sekoia. Read more about the Stockholm-based provider here.

Like so many other services, Stora Skondal was struggling to find time to both handle the care itself, and get their recordings done. In 2016, one of the homes introduced Sekoia as their digital care planning system for all services, including Learning Disability and Elderly care.

"When showing up for work in the morning, we simply walk straight in, no handover necessary, and have a look at what’s planned for today.”

All care recordings in the same place

At one of the homes, the trend was clear almost from the start. Staff are now evidencing much more of the fantastic care work carried out, as the tablets with Sekoia are always available with updated resident information. Making it easy to both access and deliver the care recordings.

"When showing up for work in the morning, we simply walk straight in, no handover necessary, and have a look at what’s planned for today. We then check the planned care activities, to see if all is good, and nothing needs changing according to how our residents are feeling today,” Registered Manager, Eva Norberg, explains.

”There’s a clear time save for each member of staff by having the care plans activated at the point of care. We no longer have to run back and forth to the offices or workstations, to sign off on paperwork or access information about the individual.”

Nursing without the massive paperwork burden

Not only the care workers have gone digital. All nurses are equally on the system, and this is quite a change for Sabina Carlsson and her nursing peers:

"Before we got Sekoia, we had to sign off medicine on a paper list. It was very time-consuming for us nurses. We had to update the information on the computer and then print out new lists, whenever a change was made. It wasn’t always clear and legible, so we are happy now. It is very straightforward in Sekoia, and we are saving lots of time.”

One of the main reasons for implementing digital care planning was freeing up time that was previously spent on paperwork. Now, that all services are up and running, the analysis has been confirmed. And replicated throughout all of Stora Sköndal.

"I see a lot of advantages. Clearly, transparency is something that we are aiming for, opening up our work to relatives that want to know more about how their mum or dad is doing.”

Person-Led Provider Ambition

For Helena Gille, who is the CEO of the group, this isn’t just a planning and care delivery assistance for staff. It’s a way of communication between everyone working and living with the person who now resides in one of her care homes.

"I see a lot of advantages. Clearly, transparency is something that we are aiming for, opening up our work to relatives that want to know more about how their mum or dad is doing. Also, we can carefully plan the care that our residents are receiving, and preferably according to their circadian rhythm and needs.”
