The winner of the Innovation in Care Award – a supplier category – is Person Centred Software.
This business has the most-widely used electronic evidence of care and care planning system in the UK, with over 1,300 care homes using its Mobile Care Monitoring (MCM) system.
The company developed MCM in 2013 as an innovative solution to evidence care as it happens, enabling care providers to reduce the time spent on paperwork, exceed compliance measures and improve the quality of care.
Innovations over the last 12 months include the digital red bag project with NHS Digital and Sutton Council, which digitised the transfer of documentation between care homes and hospitals, making admissions safer for residents and less time-consuming for care providers.
In May 2019, Person Centred Software integrated facial recognition app PainChek into MCM to drive a technological revolution in pain relief for care home residents. Then in June 2019, the company partnered with Ascom to offer innovative hardware to care homes.
Care homes using Ascom’s Myco 3 handsets can integrate evidence of care with other systems to provide a universal mobile device. The mobile device helps care providers to streamline care coordination, care responses and care delivery.
Person Centred Software is also driving innovation by working with multiple eMAR providers to begin feeding data between MCM and eMAR solutions, to give care providers a greater choice of solutions.
Antony Duhig, head of sales and marketing, said: “We’re thrilled to be here, with the backing of all our customers who love using the system to improve the quality of care that they’re providing.”
