Hallmark gives stamp of approval to Checkit compliance solution

Hallmark Care Homes is eradicating “mountains of paperwork” with the introduction of a digital compliance solution from the intelligent operations platform Checkit.

The care provider, which has 19 homes across England and Wales, partnered with Checkit to transform compliance reporting and provide real-time insight into employee procedures, equipment and facilities that are so crucial to overall quality of care.

The Checkit platform prompts, guides and logs key activity undertaken by team via a mobile app. The technology incorporates QR codes to deliver actions and reports that are specific to a given part of the building. Users include nursing and catering teams and facilities managers. 

Prior to the introduction of Checkit, manual reporting methods were occupying many hours of care workers’ time and depriving managers of the real-time visibility they need to ensure high standards.

“Audits were historically carried out by travelling to a home and wading through mountains of paperwork. This was always going to have an impact on time and time is precious when you’re caring for residents,” said Hallmark group estates manager Steve Brine.

“By being able to audit and track a home in real time, we are now using analytics to track trends and predict non-compliance before it actually happens,” he added.

The platform also incorporates IoT technology, with sensors that continuously monitor the temperatures of fridges and freezers holding food and medicine.

Following a successful implementation at one of Hallmark’s homes, the Checkit platform is now being rolled out to other sites.

Managers from Hallmark will be discussing their innovative approach in a live webinar, hosted by Checkit, on Wednesday 10 November.
