New Zealand’s Leading specialist software system designed specifically for the NZ Aged Care industry exhibiting at New Zealand’s Aged Care Association (NZACA) conference 2018

VCare is New Zealand’s specialist software system designed specifically for the New Zealand Aged Care industry exhibited at New Zealand’s Aged Care Association (NZACA) conference 2018.

Chris, Richard and Kim had an exceptional time at the New Zealand Aged Care Association (NZACA) conference in Auckland. It was great to see so many familiar faces and meet some new ones too. Every year Chris Richard and Kim enjoy catching up with you all, and this year was no exception.

VCare was proud to sponsor the VCare Legendary Service to the Aged Residential Care Sector Award. The award recognises the outstanding contribution of someone who has been part of the aged residential care industry for more than ten years. This person will have continuously made a difference in the lives of numerous residents and staff members. The winner of this award could be anyone from a senior manager of a large group, to care staff, non-care staff or a volunteer in the aged residential care industry. There were not one but two individuals who stood out and it is with pleasure that we congratulate Cecily Munro from Malyon House, Mt Maunganui and Noeline Whitehead from Metlifecare who were the recipients of this award for 2018. Thank you from everyone here at VCare International for all you have done for the aged care sector.

What do people in the Aged Care Industry say about VCare?

All the information that our staff need is right in front of them. I especially like how clinical, residential and billing features talk to each other within VCare. For example, if a resident has a fall and they get admitted to a public hospital, accounts will get a bill for the ambulance, and you can link it to the incident report.”

Aged Care Mobile Functionality – Three Ways Mobile Functionality is Evolving in the Aged Care Sector

Aged Care Mobile Functionality – Three Ways Mobile Functionality is Evolving in the Aged Care Sector

We are now in an age where mobile technology and solutions have become readily available and cost-effective. This is the time to embrace the full range of functionality that mobile technology can offer us.

Due to the dynamic nature of the aged care sector, mobile technology is becoming an imperative for success in facilities throughout New Zealand and internationally.

Over the last few years, there has been a shift in the type of hardware used in the aged care sector.  Facilities have taken advantage of the availability of smart devices such as tablets and smartphones to access information anytime, anywhere. This not only means that staff are freed from their desk or wherever the piece of paper is but also allows team members to record as they visit each patient. This results in more timely and accurate recording of resident notes as all information is entered as it happens.

By developing and improving internal processes using mobile functionality, aged care providers can optimise their internal processes.

Electronic care solution providers such as VCare International have embraced the shift towards mobile applications. Providers such as VCare are leading the way as they continue to invest in mobile functionality and technology resulting in improved visibility, transparency and clarity of information.

Mobile functionality has revolutionised the Aged Care sector through:

  1. Mobility
  2. Accessing information, anytime, anywhere
  3. Information is available in real-time

Progress Notes | VCare International

Mobility

By embracing the shift towards mobile functionality within your facility, staff and management are no longer restricted to a desk or wherever the piece of paper is. Staff can access resident information on the go, no matter where they are.

Significant benefits resulting from mobility is the range of resident information that staff have available to them. Organisations managing multiple facilities benefit from the use of mobility as it enables management to monitor the progress of residents at all times.

By continuously developing and improving internal processes management can optimise these internal processes and procedures, resulting in enhanced delivery of care for all residents.

“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 frontline staff who can remote access senior staff members who may be on the other side of the site or off-site completely.”
Tara Milne, Pukeko Blue

Accessing Information Anytime, Anywhere

Staff are no longer wasting time recording results manually then entering these into a system later on. This results in improved information validity as resident information is entered as it happens. The resident information is therefore more timely, easier to recall and requires less work as it avoids the double handling of information from paper to computer. It also means other staff don’t have to run around trying to find the latest notes on a resident, if these haven’t been entered into a system.

Top level management who operate from various other locations find this extremely beneficial as well. Management can view resident information from all sites, check recordings and take action if needed.

“VCare Any-ware is fantastic; you can look at the same information as a staff member who is physically on site. “
Tara Milne, Pukeko Blue

Information is available in real-time

The availability of real-time information is related to the quality of care being offered and delivered to residents. Real-time information means that trends and warnings of declining health are evident straight away, ensuring nurses have the tools to be proactive about the delivery of care and meeting the needs of that individual’s specific requirements.

”This reassures you 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.”
Tara Milne, Pukeko Blue

What do people in the Retirement Village Industry say about VCare?

“We are one of the leading financial statement auditors of retirement villages and rest homes in New Zealand. We find the VCare accounting module to work very well. The ORA schedule is a critical accounting document setting out income recognition and liabilities.

VCare does this accurately in a user-friendly way – this is not an easy matter as many of our clients find this very challenging. It is a schedule that should be kept up to date and VCare does this automatically meaning accurate information is available to the accountants as well as management.”

Gordon Hansen, Partner, PKF Goldsmith Fox Audit
