Attendance tracking software

In pre-digital days, care home staff routinely used manual clock-in systems and signing in sheets to record their comings and goings. Not only was this cumbersome and time consuming, it was also open to abuse and misunderstandings. Switching to a digital clocking in system removes the ambiguity and produces an accurate, central record for attendance management, payroll and security functions. Using attendance tracking software also helps people to analyse patterns in staff movements and timings of shifts. This enables more effective planning to be put in place and helps management to spot any problems or concerns before they become more serious.

Facial recognition software for clocking in

Our attendance tracking and clocking-in software uses the latest in facial recognition software to record staff movement at the start and end of shifts. This limits physical contact with the clocking-in device to aid hygiene management and eliminate cross infection. It also does away with the need for staff to keep electronic fobs on them at all times that can be lost or stolen. The tracking software also links directly to HR functionality that monitors attendance, breaktimes, sickness and lateness. The facial recognition software for staff clocking in works separately to visitor entry procedures, making the process quick and easy.

FAQ’s Section

01What is a NEWS2 chart?
The National Early Warning Score (NEWS2) system scores the physiological parameters that are frequently taken at the patient’s bedside and enters them into a chart. Its objective is to identify patients who are seriously unwell and help carers track their symptoms and concerns.
02Who uses the NEWS2 score?
The majority of acute hospital trusts, as well as ambulance services general practitioners, nursing homes and care homes use the National Early Warning Score (NEWS) to assess and monitor a person’s state of health and medical condition.
03Why is NEWS 2 important?
In order to improve detection of adult clinical detection, NHSE and NHSI have integrated to provide an integrated NEWS2 digital scoring system, understood throughout the NHS. Having crucial information stored in one place and in an easily understandable format enables all those involved in the person’s care to monitor signs of acute illnesses and improve medical outcomes.
04What are the six physiological parameters?

The NEWS2 system works by assessing a person’s state of health under six physiological parameters. These are:

  1. Respiration rate
  2. Oxygen saturation
  3. Systolic blood pressure
  4. Pulse rate
  5. Level of consciousness or state of confusion
  6. Temperature
05How do you calculate the NEWS2 score?
Six physiological measurements are made and recorded by the NEWS2 system. These are: respiration rate, oxygen saturation, systolic blood pressure, pulse rate, level of consciousness and temperature. Each measurement is scored between 0 and 3 and the sum of the individual points decides the person’s final NEWS2 score.
