One of the UK’s leading providers of digital care systems is celebrating this week after winning Best Communications/IT Supplier at the 2020 Care Home Awards.
Person Centred Software, renowned for its Mobile Care Monitoring system, which allows staff to digitally plan, record and monitor the care of residents in real-time, received the prestigious accolade during a virtual ceremony held on Friday 11th September 2020.
Hosted by Alan Dedicoat, the Care Home Awards 2020 were streamed via video link to all participants, owing to restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. An annual event, the Care Home Awards in association with Care Home Management are a celebration of excellence, innovation and achievement across the care home sector in the UK.
The Best Communications/IT Supplier Award recognises how Person Centred Software’s products and services help care homes, and reflects the outstanding levels of customer service provided by the entire organisation.
Heidi Thomas, Head of Marketing of Person Centred Software, said: “We feel honoured to have received this award - it is some much welcome good news following what has been a tough time for the care industry. At Person Centred Software, we are dedicated to helping our customers deliver outstanding care. With over two thousand care homes using Mobile Care Monitoring and thousands of care home managers, nurses, carers and owners benefiting from using the system on a daily basis, we are delighted to be making a real difference - and for this to be recognised is fantastic.”
Person Centred Software was started in 2013 with the objective of helping to improve standards in social care. Its software is revolutionising adult social care by enabling carers to digitally record care as it is given – saving admin time of about three days each month per person and improving carer and nursing staff retention in a sector that has a chronic staff shortage.
Constantly adapting to meet the ever-changing needs of those working in the care industry, innovations in the last 6 months have included the implementation of eight new features designed to help protect the elderly and vulnerable, as well as the care workforce, during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. These have included coronavirus reporting, staff coronavirus auditing, track and trace reporting, and a video link used to connect residents with relatives unable to visit in person during lockdown.
