Introduction of iCare Health
After a detailed tender process and review of health management software systems, Emmy Monash has selected iCare Health for our organisation. At Emmy, we have a history of striving for excellence in all aspects of aged care, and iCare Health management system will further assist our staff to offer exemplary outcomes for our residents.
The key advantage of iCare Health is to maintain a truly integrated, computerised care and clinical record of all our residents. Ultimately, progress notes, assessment forms and care plans will become computerised when iCare is fully implemented. The implementation will be undertaken in two stages:
- Stage One - Medications Focus
- Stage Two - Clinical Focus
Staff will be in serviced by professional iCare IT specialists following their feedback from a skills based survey to ensure successful implementation of the Medications, Stage One as a first priority. Later as Stage Two is completed, Emmy Monash will track exceptional care, evaluation and support to our residents in a fully computerised iCare Health system.
We are very excited about the transition from paper based records to a fully integrated computerised system for the residents of Emmy Monash. We believe iCare will lead to higher quality information sharing, minimise any medication concerns and maximise quality time with personalised resident care.
