Digital Care Plan
The Nursebuddy Digital Care Plan is a more effective way than the traditional paper-based care plan to ensure domiciliary care is delivered correctly and effectively, as it can be linked directly to the planning of your service and visits.
It works as an instruction for the care staff to ensure that all the clients receive individualised care, and they get the kind of service they are expecting.
Digital care plans ensure that even a rapidly changing staff pool always know what to do and have updated information at hand. Well informed and competent staff equals excellent service and satisfied clients.
Efficient to customise, simple to inform!
Digital Care Plan
Each domiciliary care client must have a care plan, which shows their assessed needs and how these can be met by carers. The plan is always customised and based on the client’s health, personal and social care needs. The identified needs are used to form a detailed description of what the domiciliary care visits should include.
In Nursebuddy, each client’s profile has an easy-to-use digital care plan that shows when it was last updated and what the critical care-related needs are. A digital care plan helps ensure that the client gets the correct service that helps to achieve their care goals, such as getting healthier or staying fit.
You can quickly create customised care plans for each client in Nursebuddy and turn them into concrete tasks for the carers with two steps:
- Build care plan templates. Add categories such as nutrition, personal care and mobility. You can modify templates as needed. Pre-made templates speed up the process of building care plans while allowing you to customise the information as required.
- Create a customised care plan for each customer. Choose the right kind of template and fill in information about the client’s needs, goal, actions and services and how urgent they are.
The templates work as a checklist for managers to ensure they have recorded all the care-related vital notes. You can choose the client-specific services from an editable list and add instructions for the care workers.
It is easy to turn a digital care plan into a detailed checklist for carers so that they always know what they are supposed to do on a visit. The carers see the tasklist on their mobile phone using the Nursebuddy app, carry out the tasks during a call and mark them as done as the visit progresses. The carer can only view the care plans on their mobile app and not edit them. You can see which tasks have been completed using a real-time overview from the diary notes.
The clients and their family can see a summary of the care plan and follow the progress of the care delivered, using the Family Portal. They can get access to the Family Portal by requesting it from the designated domiciliary care company.
