Professional Notes for Your Residents

The Professional Notes feature within Care Vision is great for adding notes generated by medical professionals such as doctors, dieticians, therapists, etc. It keeps all residents’ history and health records in one place, in digital form. Carers can easily retrieve and view notes to get an update on residents’ health and wellbeing to help inform treatment going forward.


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.


Attach Documents and Audio Files Easily

Professionals can upload documents and audio files related resident’s health concerns to the professional notes feature. If a medical professional doesn’t have time to write a detailed note, you can help them attach audio files to support their observations.

Select Notes for Multiple Residents

Another great sub-feature of Care Vision is the ability to select notes for multiple residents at once. Professionals can quickly and easily attach documents and audios for multiple residents in one go. It can really assist professionals to save time and avoid having to enter data for residents individually.
