EVERYDAY CARE SYSTEM What is the Every Day Care System?

The Everyday Care System (ECS) is an advanced care management soluon for residenal and nursing care homes. ECS will look aer your resident’s care plans, assessments, contacts, medicaons, care notes as well as your employee’s records, rota, me and a"endance, training and qualificaons, and also policies and procedures, quality assessments…and much more. In order to save you and your staff me, there are many interacve secons such as pre-wri"en care plans that only need to be allocated to a resident when required, pre-set quesons and answers to several care assessments, customisable prewri"en care notes …etc. ECS is now in use in hundreds of care homes around the UK and Ireland. As commented by some of customers, it has helped several care homes achieve a higher star rang while saving considerable me and paperwork, minimising mistakes and keeping all the staff fully informed.

So, why choose ECS? Most soware companies will claim that their soware is easy to use, however, it is only when you install the system that you realise how complex it is going to be. By taking into account the fact that most care home staff have only basic computer skills, we can genuinely claim that we have an easy to use and colourful system that people love to use. You only need one look at the Everyday Care System to see how friendly it is!
