Innovative Care Management System transforms person centred care at Gorsey Clough
Gorsey Clough Nursing Home has recently implemented a new computer based care management system. The Care Management System (CMS) provided by Wilmslow based Ablyss Systems, is designed to manage day-to-day care and staffing needs at the Home including care planning, risk assessments and reviews as well as training, auditing and rotas.
The software has been designed to be fully customisable allowing it to be adapted to different types of care provision. CMS is delivered as a working system, but as it is completely customizable, the Home has modified it to meet the individual needs of the Home and our residents.
Using CMS has meant that the Home is now a virtually paper-free environment. Prior to the installation of CMS, most of documentation was handwritten and it was a laborious and time-consuming process. Now it is available at our fingertips and by having information to hand, important issue are picked up immediately and information shared and communicated across the business instantly.
CMS has formalised our procedures within the Home. It has also centralised our processes and has helped to ensure that we are efficient in our day-to-day operation as a care home and most importantly CQC compliant.
