The second key area the CQC focuses on is whether your care service is effective.

By effective we mean that people’s care, treatment and support achieves good outcomes, promotes a good quality of life, as well as being based on the best available evidence.

AutumnCare is designed to ensure that all clinical documentation and care needs are managed effectively.

This empowers your staff to improve the well-being of their residents.

High-Quality Care Planning

It ensures that all care plans reflect the same quality, as well as ensuring consistency throughout the entire care home.

Semi-automation prompts staff to assess their resident’s needs in a holistic way, by guiding them to ask questions that they may not have considered.

Five Questions Responsive

Ensure that consent to care treatment is always sought in line with legislation and guidance

AutumnCare’s wide range of forms and assessments include the detailed Mental Capacity (MCA) as well as the Best Interest Assessment (BIA). 

Assessing Mental Capacity

Guided workflow assists with completing the BIA, only allowing its creation if the resident is found to lack capacity after completing the Mental Capacity Assessment. 

Automated Intelligence rules will only prompt staff to complete an MCA if there are doubts about a resident’s mental capabilities.

Efficiently support your residents to maintain a balanced diet and a healthy food and fluid intake 

AutumnCare’s extensive selection of charts includes Food and Fluid Balance charts. These allow you to set fluid goals for your residents.

Link fluid goals to a Dashboard indicator, flagging you when fluid goals are not met.
