In the last month, we celebrated the PASSsystem fifth birthday. Over this time, we have recorded over 400 million care tasks, with over 1000 home care and residential care businesses. We are privileged that we now support in excess of 75,000 care professionals in their work every day.
Last month saw the publication by the Care Quality Commission of its major annual report, the State of Care. This comprehensive and detailed research takes the pulse of the nation’s health and social care sectors, outlining, amongst other things, how services have improved or deteriorated in terms of care quality.
Last month Panorama’s Care in Crisis documentaries threw a stark light on the funding crisis facing the care sector. Now that the dust is settling and attention is already being diverted, it is important to ensure that the issues raised, and still very much present, are none the less addressed.
It’s always very rewarding coming away from an interview with a customer I am writing a case study for. Working mostly at a desk, behind the scenes and largely removed from day to day contact with customers, it’s reassuring to see the PASSsystem up and running out there in the real world, displaying on their dashboards as I walk into their offices.
From risk prevention and care management to better care home design, supply chain management and recruitment and retention, the benefits of predictive analysis resulting in data innovation is manifold for the care sector.
