Maximise the Time for Care

Through Optimised Scheduling & Mobilisation of Community Based Care

To relieve the pressure on hospitals and offset the costs associated with inpatient care, there is a growing need to provide community-based care that joins up health and social care provision. However, planning, scheduling and mobilising skilled workers in the community is a highly complex task, if not managed correctly it could fly in the face of improvement initiatives and actually lead to falling standards of patient care.

Kirona is helping health and social care providers to increase the time available to deliver services and make cashable savings by optimising resource scheduling, reducing travel time and streamlining the flow of information, securely to the community-based workforce.

We do this through our suite of Mobile Workforce Solutions for Health and Social Care. Firstly, Kirona’s Dynamic Resource Scheduler optimises the working day of each health and social care professional. Then Job Manager connects the community based workers to back-office systems and resources they need, with accurate, secure information delivered directly to their mobile device in real time through. Finally, InfoSuite provides true insight across the entire operation enabling continuous improvement.
