Understanding key issues
Reliance on multiple systems
Care organisations may use multiple systems to record and manage information. This can lead to inefficient processes, duplicate records, data silos and reporting difficulties.
Need to remove paper records
Paper records create an administration nightmare for community-based teams. Travelling to the office to collect and complete paperwork reduces the time spent delivering care and support.
Maintaining compliance with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) is a constant challenge for social care organisations. The inability to provide fully auditable reports makes it harder for providers to evidence the quality and safety of their service.
To do more with less
Shrinking budgets and resources make it difficult for social care teams to deliver the same quantity and quality of service.
Ageing population with complex conditions
The UK has an ageing population, with more people living longer with complex conditions. By 2050, one in four people will be over the age of 65, which will significantly increase the demand for care.
