Good communication and data sharing within and across health and care services are key to giving people the best quality of care at every stage of their health and social care journey, as well as meeting people's care needs in a safe, timely and person-centred way.
Digital Care Management Systems (Digital Social Care Records) provide the means to coordinate and streamline care more effectively by helping to join up health and care services, with real-time information being shared with authorised individuals across the health and care sector.
In addition to being accessible to all care teams and care professionals involved in a person's care at any time, Digital Care Management Systems, such as Person Centred Software’s Digital Care Planning System, help to manage care proactively and allow the digital recording of care information and care received by an individual within a social care setting, replacing the need for traditional paper records.
Digital care management systems are person-centred and help to improve the delivery of health and social care services through interoperability and the sharing of data
In order for integrated care models to be successful, data sharing and information flow are essential. Therefore, Digital Social Care Records play an important role in the delivery of person-centred coordinated care.
Digital Social Care Records (digital care management systems) support integrated care as they:
Person Centred Software’s Digital Care Management System does all of the above and Person Centred Software has been working hard to bridge the gap between organisations, improving the delivery of health and social care services through interoperability and the sharing of data.
Furthermore, Person Centred Software has partnered with a variety of like-minded partners to create an ecosystem of care by integrating its products to enable a complete suite of digital systems that work together and feed into its Digital Care Management System.
GP Connect is a prime example of joined-up care; through GP Connect, which is integrated into Person Centred Software’s Digital Care Management System, social care professionals and nurses can obtain the data they need in record speed to deliver outstanding care, improve their clinical decision-making, and provide better care and outcomes. This leads to more responsible medical decisions, improves information flow as people transition between care home environments and hospitals, and assists with the waiting list backlog accumulated since the coronavirus pandemic.
We’ve found the software to be fantastic – the access to GP Patient records is instant, which saves an invaluable amount of time. It enables our care home to process admissions much quicker as the information is at hand, which is a great help for the hospitals, especially when they struggle for beds.
With GP Connect, accessing the record is instant, the time saving is immense! We are now aware of what medical conditions or issues people have and therefore can ensure that care is delivered most appropriately, this has made a real difference to obtaining important information promptly.
