The first question the CQC asks is whether your care service is safe.
Safe means people are protected from abuse as well as avoidable harm.
AutumnCare’s features support staff in meeting these regulatory requirements.
Protect people from bullying, harassment, avoidable harm, abuse and breaches of human rights
AutumnCare encourages providers to embed their own policies into the care management system using Automated Intelligence rules.
These work hand in hand with the systems customisable Dashboard indicators.
Configured alerts will inform you if important issues are not attended to.
Indicators can range from overdue weights, unfinished risk assessments as well as incomplete incident forms.
AutumnCare includes an integrated reporting suite.
This assists with analysing incidents. This helps you identify trends and therefore prevent harmful situations that could have been avoided.
Forms and Assessments
Inconsistencies in your care records are eliminated thanks to AutumnCare’s single instance questions.
Single instance questions appear in forms as well as in assessments.
Single instance means you answer a question once and the system will automatically update all other assessments and care plans linked to this question.
AutumnCare offers a sophisticated inbuilt messaging system, which allows staff members to whistle blow directly to management or the provider.
Manage risks to individuals and the service. Protect people; support and respect their freedom
