Care planning allows care providers to understand why a resident is receiving care, the resident's medical history, preferences and personal details. It also provides vital information to care staff to help them provide the best possible care, support and treatment, helping to improve residents' safety and quality of life.
It is essential that care plans meet the social and medical needs of the people care staff support; one of our highest priorities at Person Centred Software is ensuring residents receive the best care possible. Creating comprehensive person-centred care plans through Care Planning System's allows care providers to access residents' preferences and important information at the point of care when and where it's needed, as well as enables care staff to deliver high-quality, safe and personalised care more efficiently.
A key function of creating and using care plans is to ensure there is consistency in the care that is provided, no matter who is caring for the person. If a good care plan is in place, then despite staff changeovers, rota changes, visits or schedule changes, the care provided will always be consistent and the quality of care will remain high.
We are all unique, and therefore one approach for all does not work when caring for people. Care teams are the people providing the care each day and part of that is being aware and reactive to any changes such as changes in needs or preferences. Care plans can be updated which then helps care staff to deliver care in the best and most efficient way possible.
The benefits of digital care planning have been widely discussed in the care sector due to the government's aim for all CQC-registered adult social care providers to have access to a Digital Social Care Record by 2024.
Our Digital Care Planning System meets the government's target of digitised care records and gives care providers all the information they need for CQC inspections, helping to improve CQC scores.
