Over the past five years, care homes in Northern European countries have waved goodbye to time-consuming paperwork and forever vanishing post-its, hailing digitization and cloud benefits. With Sekoia at their hands, care homes are now fighting the lack of overview and documentation frenzy.
For care staff, so much of the success of delivering service to those who need help is focused on cohesion and careful planning. By utilising technology that can make caregiving run more smoothly, staff can shift their focus to care competencies, like collecting knowledge and sharing it with other staff members for optimal communication. After all, boosting competency in the care environment is beneficial for all people involved.
Digitalisation often involves the introduction of one or more new tools that employees must relate to and ideally utilise in a meaningful way. In many cases this takes place in line with an organisational process aimed at improving quality, optimising operations or a third anchor for initiating the digital change. If this is the case, there are a number of considerations that can be made.
The appeal of digitisation is higher than ever before and the care sector is no different. We witness an increasing interest in the care sector for various digital devices and services. With the high demographic pressure and the spending cutbacks, we experience an increased demand for efficiency. Here the digitisation process is considered by many as a part of the answer to the social initiatives of the future.
In some care homes, the reality is heavily influenced by hectic work schedules and limited time for each individual resident. In some cases, this forces the staff to compromise their care competencies and the communication between colleagues could suffer as a result.
CQC is addressing 5 cardinal topics to make sure that the care services in the UK are living up to certain standards. Sekoia in this respect has been created to improve workflow in care homes and support the ambition to be both efficient and caring. We are taking a closer look at CQC's key questions.
Digitisation plays an increasingly important role as a supporting tool for care staff in the chase for CQC compliance and proper quality assurance streamlining every aspect of care delivery.
As the demands of documentation continue to grow and the way of providing care increasingly shifts towards being more digital, the amount of data available also increases. This transition contributes towards the shaping of future care homes across the UK. We are looking at 3 areas that will benefit straight away.
By well-led, we mean that the leadership, management and governance of the organisation assure the delivery of high-quality, person-centred care, supports learning and innovation, and promotes an open and fair culture. In residential care, this means that management and leadership encourage and deliver an open, fair, transparent, supporting and challenging culture at all levels.
