Webroster launch Outcomes for managing reablement care packages
Webroster.net is a web based software system widely used within the care industry for workforce scheduling and monitoring. The system is ideal for organisations with a bank of carers to manage who need to visit a large number of homecare clients – all of whom have wide-ranging and specific requirements that need to be managed as effectively and efficiently as possible by those coordinating their visits.
Outcomes is integrated functionality within the latest version of the Webroster.net rostering system (V3.2) specifically designed for reablement care providers. In response to the shift in Department of Health policy councils are now pursuing a policy of reablement to provide short term care package of homecare following patients discharge from hospital or entry into the care system following a crisis. Organisations providing this type of care need to log the progress of a patient over a short period of time, scoring them on their ability to perform agreed tasks with a view to becoming gradually more independent.
Home care staff visiting a number of clients with very different reablement care packages will be able to use the Webroster Bee app to log in at the client’s location using their mobile phone. The client’s record will show them the required information straight away and they can record a patient’s progress and scores for key tasks at the point of care delivery.
Using Outcomes managers will be able to manage individual client reablement care packages and communicate changes and updates to staff quickly and easily. As the client progresses care managers will be able to reduce the number of visits allocated or if they need additional support they can roster the appropriately qualified member of staff to give them extra help. A number of new reports are being created with reablement in mind to give care managers access to information required to manage this type of service.
“The Outcomes functionality is being designed to be as flexible as possible.” Says Darren Evans, Commercial Director at Webroster Ltd. “With the help of our Business Consultants, Care Managers will be able to set the system up and customize it to reflect the reablement care packages in their area and using terminology familiar to carers.”
