Birtley House has successfully moved from a paper-based to a computerised care plan system with the advent of MED e-care.
We needed an Outstanding system for an Outstanding home (CQC rating 2016) and after considerable investigation, MED e-care was selected. The system is powerful and yet easy and intuitive to use; can be tailored to the Homes individual requirements, while the support staff are tremendous & inspired confidence.
With the system built and ready to go, it just remained for staff to have training sessions and we went live, as planned, on 18th August. Although some of the staff were probably rather nervous about the transition to such a system, they all took it in their stride and the system is in use by all departments.
WELL DONE BIRTLEY!
