The CAREAudits System

CAREAudits apps and systems evolved via an associated company Kern Systems were Ken Newlove director and founding member had been developing and deploying paperless systems for EPoS and Finance in the private and public sectors since 1999.

Back in 2014 the team had more than 50 years experience in IT and software development as well as having been heavily involved in the third sector, with a trustee of three charities, a director of a business directly involved in the care market and a consultant in a £10 million turnover charity and interim CEO and Chair at an adult hospice.

Working in the Care Sector the team recognised in 2014 the sector was becoming overwhelmed with administration driven by ever increasing legislative compliance requirements and controls and pressurised by ever increasing costs. The CAREAudits apps evolved from their desire to give something back to the Care Sector; to develop systems that genuinely reduce costs and increase efficiency as well as improving accountability and quality. And above all a system that would be easy to install and use by everyone.

The CAREAudits System
The CAREAudits app and Web Portal Auditing Tool is now being used throughout the UK and Ireland by all care service providers. in numerous locations. There are thousands of carers checking everything from CQC Compliance and Safety, to Medication Audits, Training and Maintenance as well as service users quality and wellbeing and now Corona Virus.

Steve Smith regional manager at Care Homes UK says
“We were able to implement the system ourselves and are now benefitting from management having all the information we need at our fingertips in real time wherever we are”.

The system allows care providers to audit or check just about everything and manage areas requiring actions (or non-compliances) in it’s Web Portal. Encrypted date and time stamped evidence including photos is seamlessly auto attached and recorded in the system.

Natalie Lawrence at Yorkare Homes says

“It’s a paperless system that runs alongside our existing client records system helping to make our whole operation paperless.”

CAREAudits ensures management and staff are aware at all times of what needs checking, that it’s been checked, actions required by whom, by when including full resolution management. Each CAREAudit also scores the answers so management can monitor improvement. Steven Tegart from Talbot Group likes reporting and says “I wish all my other systems were as easy to extract data for management reports as the CAREAudits’ Excel links.”

The system has over 120 example audits to select from. CAREAudits apps are extremely easy to use and care providers can easily add or edit their own audits in minutes ensuring simple management of ever-changing requirements. App auditors can use CAREAudits with virtually no training, it’s that simple. The Care Auditor’s Hands Free Operation guides the user through each audit, each question and answer with it’s own help text, standard answers and standard actions required, ensuring that the least skilled operative becomes the care provider’s expert. Users can download the app for a free trial and be up and running with the full system in minutes.
