They will use the system to improve outcomes of the people they work with, increase efficiency in recording care activities and keep family members better connected with their loved ones.
The new StoriiCare software will personalise services for the individuals using day services and enable families to connect with their loved ones from around the world. The platform had previously been tested with a small pilot group before rolling out to multiple sites.
Claire Shuter, ECL head of digital, said: “By using modern technology such as StoriiCare, we can personalise our service for each customer. The people using our services are often living with dementia and the ability to create personal profiles supports person-centred care planning and has led to a significant improvement in engagement.
“Staff are enthusiastic about using the application as it saves them time on administration and family members have been delighted with the outcomes achieved.”
ECL was established by Essex County Council in 2009 as the UK’s first Local Authority Trading Company, providing care and support in South East England for residents at home and in local communities. With over 1,000 employees, the company supports over 50,000 people each year to live independent and fulfilling lives.
StoriiCare is a senior care software company with offices in Edinburgh, London and San Francisco. Founder Cameron Graham started the company in 2016 to help companies in the senior care market transform the way they record care.
Cameron Graham, StoriiCare CEO, said: “Ultimately our goal is to reduce paperwork for staff and improve connections between families and their loved ones. We’re delighted Essex Cares is rolling out StoriiCare across multiple locations and we look forward to continue working closely with their team!”
