At UKSLS we couldn’t agree more, that’s why we utilise IPADs and our CORP technology removing 90% of the paper recording that existed 18 months ago!

Care home staff are still using paper records and spending time at the end of their shift updating them, according to a recent survey.

Out of 103 care workers surveyed by mobile management systems supplier Advanced Health & Care, the majority (85 per cent) said they need the help of technology to do their jobs efficiently but do not have it.

According to the survey, staff from big as well as small care homes reported working over their regular hours to leave a paper trail, that would have taken less time if mobile technology such as mobile patient management systems were installed.
