Person Centred Software created its digital care planning and monitoring software to help address the UK’s elderly care challenge – and is now used by 1,800 care homes across the UK, with carers using it to record 3 million care interventions every day.
The organisation has been named as one of the UK’s top 10 SMEs in a national list by Digital Leaders 100, created to celebrate businesses which have been vital to the UK’s digital transformation.
Person Centred Software’s digital care system, Mobile Care Monitoring, saves care workers an hour a day on paperwork with care interactions evidenced as they happen, enabling them to focus on hands-on care, as well as helping families to stay in touch with their loved ones. During the Covid-19 pandemic, Person Centred Software’s team worked quickly to release a free version of its Relatives Gateway portal to keep care home residents and their families connected via secure messaging, photos and video calls.
Jonathan Papworth, who set up Person Centred Software with his brother Simon Papworth seven years ago, said: “The social care sector is often under recognised and it is heartening to receive this accolade. The work we have done alongside care homes is helping to improve standards and make a difference to the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in our society.”
Digital Leaders 100 is an initiative that promotes effective, long-term digital transformation within the UK.
