Social Care

Delivering the best support and service to patients is the highest priority within the social care sector. With a growing population of people living longer with complex conditions, means care organisations are under more pressure than ever. With limited budgets and increasing demands on our social care system, care organisations need to find ways to drive efficiencies whilst retaining the focus on delivering the best care possible.

Market Challenges

Care organisations strive for excellence in their care provision to patients. Delivering this relies on having access to up-to-date information at point of care, to ensure they can offer the right care at the right time. Many face challenges in achieving this due to inefficiencies and outdated processes.


Poor visibility

To provide the best service possible, care workers need to have access to the most up- to-date information possible. Without this, they risk missing bookings, have no sight of contract requirements and can put patient care in danger.


Paper based processes

Rostering and care planning that is completed on paper is open to manual errors and inefficiencies. These challenges mean many care organisations have out-dated processes that can’t keep up with the growth of their organisations.


Lack of auditability

Being able to provide an audit trail is critical when providing evidence of care to the Care Quality Comissions. Organisations without access to the latest information from efficient reporting processes will run into compliance issues.


Manual payroll processes

Demands on the payroll function increase as care organisations grow. Those that still reply on manual payroll processes are unable to keep up and are prone to error, leading to issues such as expense validation and duplication of data.

“Staffplan allows us to efficiently manage our care delivery, minimising care workers travel and waiting time. This means workers are less likely to leave, and our coordinators have more time to ensure the correct documentation is completed.”
