Care home administration software provider CoolCare and digital care management software Nourish have partnered to make the administrative side of care easier and more user-friendly.
The integration will see the two platforms able to share data, meaning that from an initial enquiry through to receiving day-to-day care as a resident, the records are linked and there is no need to re-input data onto the systems separately. Any relevant updates made in CoolCare will then also reflect in Nourish, making the flow of information between the business-side and the care delivery smoother and easier for all.
CoolCare managing director Fiona Hale said: “There is a real working affinity between CoolCare and Nourish which made them a natural fit for our ongoing integration programme. We both want to make the administrative side of care easier for those on the frontline while helping to build stronger care businesses and a more prosperous care sector.
“Headlines have positioned our care sector as understaffed and underfunded, at the detriment of recognising the incredible work that is happening to strengthen care businesses. Adopting digital tools gives many care providers greater stability and the visibility within the business to be able to plan, prepare and continue to deliver the best quality care to residents.”
Steve Lawrence, head of product at Nourish, added: “It is true for many working in care that they chose this career path as a way to connect with and help people. By streamlining essential working processes, there is more time available to do just this, helping raise care standards and give staff greater satisfaction in their role. Our integration with CoolCare will allow providers already using both platforms to make time savings, making the day-to-day role of managing and working in care that little bit easier.”
