Links with medication systems | VCare Complete

Wouldn’t it make management of your facility easier if all of your software got along?

Did you know that VCare Complete can link with your medication management systems?

 

Upon admission to your facility, the resident’s details are passed to the medication management system, reducing the need for double data entry.

The resident’s Kardex can be viewed also in VCare Complete. VCare Complete sources the Kardex at the time the user requests to view the information, ensuring the information is up to date and there is a single source of truth. 

“VCare Complete is an excellent system, it has saved us time and money. It allows us immediate access to required information. The prompts to the interventions required for each resident, the automatic scheduling of residents reviews, care plan reviews, and medication reviews mean that we are always on top of providing the best care for our residents.”

Top Marketing Strategies for Retirement Villages and Aged Care Facilities

Top Marketing Strategies for Retirement Villages and Aged Care Facilities

New Zealand’s population is aging and because of this rest homes are becoming more popular and more of a necessity. Even though there’s huge demand for rest home care, at the same time the market is becoming hugely competitive with new aged care facilities being built all the time.

We share our top tips with you on making the most of your marketing spend.

Top Marketing Strategies for Aged Care | VCare Intermational

Communication

It’s very important to make sure that as an aged care provider, you have the processes in place to manage the whole decision-making process and the communication that goes along with it. This starts when someone/ their family first contacts you. At this point, they become a prospect and you’ll want to follow up with some communication such as a direct mail or flyer inviting them to come along to an open day or come in to explore the facilities. You need to continually nurture this relationship and build trust. The communication doesn’t end when they become a resident, it needs to continue, throughout the whole time the resident is in your care.

 

Online presence

Now more than ever, your rest home needs a strong online presence. Almost everybody is online and connected these days – you’ll find a good number of your residents use the internet regularly and will be looking online to see what your rest home offers, in comparison to the competition.

Make sure your website has relevant, up-to-date content, that is reviewed regularly. It needs to be obvious on your website what care levels are available, when a user first visits your website. It needs to be mobile friendly so that no matter what type of computer/device your prospect is using they will be able to easily find the information on your website applicable to them.

Finally, you’ll want to make sure that your website is optimised so that your prospects will be able to find your website when searching online for aged-care facilities in the city and surrounding area.Top Marketing Strategies for Aged Care | VCare International

Caring for your residents – wherever, whenever you need it. VCare Any-ware is a cost effective application build to meet the demands of the Aged Care Industry.

VCare Any-ware allows staff to view, update and create resident:

  • summary records
  • vitals
  • progress notes
  • measurements
  • assessments
  • observations
  • charts
  • histories

VCare Any-ware – giving you the tools so you can spend more time on the things that matter.

 

“VCare Any-ware is fantastic, and you can look at the same information as a staff member who is physically on site. This gives you the reassurance that if you are not comfortable with a particular Service Users measurements, you can look it up remotely. If there is an issue you can get your staff to do recordings on site, add them to VCare so that you can check the recordings and take immediate action if needed. We have saved a lot of time through VCare. We are more mobile and are no longer restricted by where the paper or supervising staff are. This means more support for front line staff who can remote access senior staff members who may be on the other side of the site or off-site completely.”
