As attention within the care sector turns towards the possibilities that new, virtual technologies can bring to its practices, expert corporate software developer, UniqueIQ, offers advice on how to effectively implement a digital care planning solution in order to experience its full benefits.
This news come as Andrea Sutcliffe, Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care at the Care Quality Commission (CQC), urged the sector to adopt such technology last February. UniqueIQ has been developing its virtual time and attendance tool, IQ:timecard, since 2003, working closely with care organisations alongside other sectors such as contract cleaning. In November 2016 it refined its offering to suit the specialist needs of care providers, acquiring Care Planning System and adapting its original software to become IQ:careplanner, an effective digital care planning solution.
David Lynes, Director of UniqueIQ explained, “Digital tools can make implementing care planning solutions seamless but selecting a provider that isn’t right for you can create more headaches. To effectively implement a digital strategy, you need a system that’s intuitive to use to get the most out of it. A practical system should reduce your back office processes, such as payroll and invoicing, giving your staff more time to focus on other areas. A key area to consider is whether the system is intelligent enough to match care workers and clients together and their suitability, without having to purchase extra modules at an additional cost.”
UniqueIQ has meticulously developed its innovative software for the care sector, making the process of storing and accessing employees qualifications, client documents, and more effortless. With a customisable system in place that matches their needs, businesses using IQ:careplanner can streamline routine operations and make significant cost savings. The smart system instantly matches each client with the most suitable care worker, ensuring their needs are met and they’re able to build up an excellent relationship with those delivering the support. It’s not just relationships with clients that the digital tool can improve either, through improved communication businesses are able to offer flexible working hours and boost staff retention.
