Why is connected care important,
and what are the benefits? 

Achieving optimal health in residents

Connected care is essential in order to achieve optimal health and improve outcomes for care home residents. Health and care professionals working together and providing a joined-up service to meet resident needs enhances the quality of care residents receive, as the people involved in their care, treatment, and support have immediate access to the most accurate and up-to-date information, enabling them to treat residents more quickly and efficiently and make informed decisions about their care, which could be lifesaving in an emergency situation. 

Bringing it all together 

Through connecting health and care services and care providers utilising digital social care record systems, such as mCare, each resident can receive the right care whenever and wherever they need it. 

Person Centred Software is leading the way in connecting health and social care services with its joined-up care services whilst working in partnership with Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) to host several virtual and in-person events across England. Along with working on a number of projects with the NHS to enable joined up care for people, places and populations, supporting the joined-up care initiative, Person Centred Software is also working with a number of best-in-class partners to develop a care ecosystem, incorporating a complete suite of digital systems that work together and feed into its Digital Care System, mCare.

Some of the benefits of connected care 


  • Residents will only have to share their health information once; people with multiple conditions will hugely benefit from a connected health and care service as they won't have to repeat their needs to numerous people across different organisations. 
  • People involved in the resident's care will be able to see what medications they take, including any medication allergies they might have; this makes it safer to prescribe and manage medication. 
  • Health and care professionals can make better, more informed decisions as they have instant access to accurate and up-to-date information to help them assess and treat residents, which could be lifesaving in emergencies.   
  • Ensures that nobody falls between the gap and that everyone receives the right care in the right place at the right time - better integration is vital to stop people from falling into the gaps between health and social care.  
  • Helps to improve people's lives and deliver better outcomes. 
  • Improves coordinated care, helping to give quicker diagnosis and treatment.
  • Helps care delivery to become less fragmented.
