Person Centred Software (PCS) is celebrating the 1,000th care home using its Digital Care System. On 31st January, Longview Nursing Home in Essex, part of Runwood Homes Ltd, was the 1,000th site implementation.
In the UK, the 1,000 care homes using the Digital Care System now enable 30,000 users to jointly record 1.8 million care notes every 24 hours. Internationally, in Australia and New Zealand, where the company launched in 2018, 9 homes are also using the system, with a further 10 in the pipeline for implementation by Easter 2019.
Jonathan Papworth, co-founder and director of Person Centred Software says, “Person Centred Software implemented the Digital Care System at over 40 care homes every month on average during 2018. This is set to increase in 2019, and we are on track to double the number of homes using the Digital Care System by the end of 2019. I am extremely grateful for all the hard work of my colleagues and loyal customers who have enabled us to achieve this outstanding milestone.
Runwood Homes installed the Digital Care System in August 2018 at two care homes to fully test the system’s capabilities and the implementation process. By January 2019, using its proven implementation method, Person Centred Software had successfully delivered 27 of the group’s homes so far, with the remaining 28 homes due to complete in the first half of 2019. Person Centred Software’s 1,000th care home, Longview Nursing Home, alongside Runwood’s other homes, efficiently used the Digital Care System to record a high number of daily care notes per resident within days of receiving training.
Sarah Sanders, Business Operations Director at Runwood Homes says, “We are very satisfied with both the implementation process and the capabilities of Person Centred Software’s Digital Care System. It is now being used as standard practice in a considerable number of our residential care services across the UK.”
She continues, “The Digital Care System is extremely user-friendly for our professional care teams. It has streamlined care plans and care evidence records, whilst allowing us to remain person-centred in our care approach. Plus, we believe the efficiency of the system has afforded our carers more time to spend with residents.”
Sarah adds, “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Person Centred Software as we rollout the system to all the care homes in our portfolio.”
