Real Time Care Monitoring, The Story So Far.
Founded in late 2014, everyLIFE Technologies Ltd was launched to meet a real business need - to reduce the risk associated with the administration of medications in care businesses. Initial discussions with care business owners led to more serious meetings about apps, Java, Scala and cloud computing and very soon everyLIFE Technologies was born!
PASS soon followed, piloting in December 2014 and going live in February of the following year. In response to the hugely positive reception of PASS by its first adopters, the risk-reducing, real time care monitoring app quickly became a multi-function care management platform shaped by its users and delivering an entirely new approach to client data, alerts and reporting.
Over the next 18 months everyLIFE grew rapidly from a few people with Apple Macs and a shared dream to make a difference in the care sector, to a fast-moving, market-leading, game-changing care technology company employing about 50 people.
And The Story Continues...
Over the last four years, we’ve launched great new real time care monitoring products for care businesses and to the public who use care. And great new people have joined us to accelerate growth and realise their ideas in a free-thinking and innovative environment. Our values are dynamism, inspiration, sociability, excitement, innovation and pride in what we do. We encourage learning, transparency, ambition and a growth mindset – all in a culture of job satisfaction, diversity and fun.
everyLIFE has completed the NHS Information Governance Toolkit V14.1 (a requirement for suppliers to NHS and related bodies), adheres to the principles of the National Cyber Security Centre and carries both ISO 27001 and 9001 accreditations.
Unusually in the sector, every member of staff is required to undertake and pass the NHS Data Security Awareness training course.
everyLIFE represents a refreshingly different, and unusually low-risk technology partner, with the definitive PASS product work-proven by thousands of users, the tightest governance and the greatest technical capability.
The Fourth Age of Care
Care has evolved from family care, through residential care to the growth of homecare and of course the combination of all. Care is evolving again, driven by a combination of heightened consumer expectation, increased demand due to an aging population and the advance of mobile technology to improve data sharing.
We are moving into ‘The Fourth Age of Care’. The challenges are significant. Quality of care is increasingly scrutinized, the complexity of care required outside of hospital settings is increasing, families are demanding up to the minute care reports and business owners are being squeezed by Local Authority budgets and employee wage inflation.
The care industry needs a mobile platform to improve care quality, to establish essential connections between health and social care stakeholders and to modernise inefficient processes. The market is demanding a real-time view of care provision that will deliver the person-centred care that supports vulnerable people.
PASS has been developed to be at the heart of the Fourth Age of Care - real time care monitoring is the future.
PASS has proved completely intuitive to use, even for the least technical care assistant – a revelation.
My Supervisors no longer spend 65% of their time in the office typing up notes taken at assessment meetings – they do it once with the customer, and get it right from the outset. My Supervisors now spend 90% of their time out in the community – better care, improved support for care workers, and more assessments.
We saw the service had made improved use of information through the implementation of PASS for assessing the quality of the service provided, including the consistency of care provided to individuals. PASS has the potential to provide the service with a greater range of information which can be utilised for Quality Assurance. This will include outcomes and tasks completed and missed. Operational statistics will include reviews and staff supervision as well as analysis of nutritional and hydration information entered by staff.
The system reduces the time and cost of setting up care plans for patients going home from hospital by 50%. This has delivered a £20K saving to my bottom line.
By listening carefully to the care industry, everyLIFE have developed a solution that greatly helps join up the provision of customer-centred care. They are on a mission to bring the much needed technical answers to the business challenges we are all facing. I very much look forward to seeing the new functionality they have in the next release and beyond.
I implemented PASS in three weeks and my customers are already seeing the benefits in quality of care.
It’s easy to use and with the training provided, all staff like the system. Any office implementing it will save a substantial amount of supervisor time.
The whole process from initial enquiry to going live was quick, efficient and easy and the support we received from the team at everyLIFE was second to none. I would recommend PASS to any care company.
A really important advance for care, PASS provides care notes and completion notes instantly so we can react immediately to missed medications and other urgent care alerts.
Easy to use, extensively tested and developed by people that understand care, PASS is unique and robust at solving the critical challenges faced by the industry.
