Mobile Care Monitoring helps Belong achieve Outstanding
Person Centred Software’s Mobile Care Monitoring has helped Belong Atherton Care Village in Greater Manchester achieve CQC Outstanding.
The care village, which achieved Outstanding last month (see Belong care village achieves CQC Outstanding), introduced Mobile Care Monitoring last year.
In its report, the CQC said: “The Person Centred Software system was integral in developing and providing opportunities for people to engage in meaningful activities.”
Belong Atherton, which achieved four out of five Outstandings, joins 33 other Outstanding rated care homes using Mobile Care Monitoring. The intelligent mobile solution is used for evidencing care interactions, electronic care planning and reporting.
Julie Washington, the general manager of Belong Care Atherton Village, said: “We are continuously looking for ways to improve our practice at Belong Atherton and one of the major innovations over the past year has been the introduction of the digital platform for care planning and recording information.
“Tablet-based recording in a live environment means we are capturing some really lovely moments of care and activity that may have otherwise been missed on paper. The inspectors witnessed the benefits of this and it has contributed to the wider picture of innovative and outstanding care practice across the village.”
Jonathan Papworth, Co-Founder and Director of Person Centred Software, added: “Congratulations to Belong Atherton Care Village for achieving an Outstanding rating from CQC. Our innovative mobile solution for evidencing care interactions and care planning is helping their staff to have more time to care for people rather than spend loads of time on paperwork and admin.”
