Quality and compliance expert Radar Healthcare has announced plans for a software integration with leading care management platform Nourish Care.
The partnership will enable care services to report incidents directly to Radar Healthcare from within the Nourish app.
The integration, which will enter beta testing this month (October 2022), will reduce the need for multiple systems to be accessed at the point of care delivery and in turn, release more time which can be spent with residents.
The two systems will work seamlessly together. Care providers will be able to record incidents, such as a resident fall, from within the Nourish app.
Radar Healthcare will then capture the incident data for analysis and reporting, while a process designed by the customer will be triggered from within Radar Healthcare – ensuring the information at the point of care can be accessed in real-time across the whole care team.
The information recorded within the Nourish app will be instantly integrated within Radar Healthcare’s own platform and the status and outcome of the incident will be pushed back into Nourish.
This will enable care providers to analyse incident data, so future events can be more easily predicted, and preventative steps put into place to ensure better safety outcomes for both residents and staff.
Mark Fewster, chief product officer for Radar Healthcare, said: “We’re excited to be working closely with the team at Nourish Care.
“Our software integration will make a big impact on the provision of care and resident safety. On the frontline, it’s about recording events in the best possible way ensuring the right information is captured accurately and in real-time.
“There is no duplication and care providers will have access to comprehensive data insights from within the Radar Healthcare platform so they can make informed decisions about improvements to risk and compliance issues. All of this empowers providers and helps to deliver better outcomes.
“The partnership with Nourish Care is one of many we’re set to announce over the coming months. We will also very soon release news of an exciting development in our ongoing API strategy, which involves device and data driven inputs and underpinning data so watch this space for the capabilities this will open up for care providers.”
Nourish Care was one of the first recognised as an NHS Transformation Directorate assured supplier for the Digital Social Care Records (DSCR) DPS at launch and was also the first accredited by the PRSB as a quality partner, working to promote best practice standards for care.
Nourish works with more than 2,500 care service users in the UK and overseas, within residential homes, nursing homes, learning disability services, mental health services and other care settings.
Steve Lawrence, head of propositions and partnerships at Nourish Care, added: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Radar Healthcare. Our focus is always on user experience.
“We provide an easy to use, accessible solution for the recording, reporting and co-ordinating of care. Key partnerships such as this allow us to respond to the ever-changing needs of our users and the thousands of people Nourish Care supports.”
Radar Healthcare was founded by technology experts Paul Johnson and Lee Williams in 2012 in response to the changing regulatory landscape with a vision to support better healthcare outcomes while instilling a culture of continuous improvement.
The platform has been developed in partnership with healthcare professionals to ensure organisations always meet regulatory standards through one single, easy-to-use system.
