Ashford, Kent, United Kingdom, 2012/10/11 - Advanced Health & Care (Advanced), a leading supplier of IT systems for the care sector is showcasing its CareSys, StaffPlan and iConnect products on stand S62 at the Care Show (Bournemouth International Centre on 27 and 28 March 2012).
These solutions can be provided on a hosted platform, including as a managed service and 'in the cloud' through sister company, Advanced 365.
This is the first time that Advanced 365 will be exhibiting alongside Advanced Health & Care at the show, allowing visitors to explore the different IT delivery methods available. Business information system, CareSys, is being showcased by Advanced on stand S62. This end-to-end business application is designed specifically for residential care providers and encompasses care planning and delivery; time and attendance management; and financial and operational management. More than 3,000 residential, nursing and specialist care organisations across the UK are already managing care and their businesses using CareSys.
Advanced is also exhibiting rostering and administrative solution, StaffPlan. StaffPlan enables care worker and service user information to be quickly and securely shared across an organisation. It also makes it easy to schedule, manage and display care worker appointments so that it is clear where care workers should be and at which times.
Finally, Advanced is exhibiting iConnect, a revolutionary mobile workforce solution designed for home care, and supported living providers. This point of care solution works with StaffPlan to allow real-time communication between thousands of care workers and office staff.
iConnect, which is available on a range of mobile devices, delivers proof of attendance along with real-time scheduling and outcome recording. To prove attendance, care workers simply touch in and out at each point of care using their NFC-enabled mobile phones. iConnect typically boosts compliance for home care providers and can deliver efficiency savings of over 20 per cent when replacing paper-based processes. iConnect used alongside landline monitoring gives care providers a comprehensive call monitoring proposition.
Using Advanced 365's platform technologies and services, CareSys, StaffPlan and iConnect can all be delivered as a managed service or within the cloud, removing the costly overheads and risks associated with organisations managing the systems themselves. The cloud also enables secure anytime, anywhere access to IT and the service can be easily expanded or contracted inline with the changing needs of the business.
Jim Chase, Managing Director of Advanced Health & Care says,"By joining forces with our colleagues at Advanced 365, we're able to offer cloud-based care solutions for the first time at the Care Show. With cloud solutions, care providers do not have to worry about the costs and risks associated with maintaining their IT. After all, care providers are experts in care delivery, not IT - they shouldn't be concerned with trying to keep their IT systems up and running!"
