In other words its the perfect software solution for Ageing-in-Place and Smart-House objectives whilst also caring for Staff and having the ability to safeguard ‘tagged’ assets.
Experience Makes Perfect
The Winwatch Nurse Call software program has been gradually developed for over 20 years from its Dos (Comwatch) system beginnings. The program is under continual development to ensure that it is able to accommodate the ever growing ‘wish list’ of Healthcare Professionals along with the dynamic ongoing development of IP and wide ranging Wireless technologies.
The manual and automatic reporting capabilities of Winwatch set totally new boundaries. This is particularly so for the overall and location/shift specific monitoring of staff performance. Likewise it allows the monitoring and maintenance of Resident Care-Plans.
Periodic and automatically despatched email deliveries of preconfigured reports also allows Head-Office specialists to manage and compare relative performance, not only of various Wings or Wards within a site but also provide detailed performance comparisons from each of multiple sites.
A Platform For Multi-System Integration
The ever growing quantity and variety of installed sub systems and pre-existing ‘Legacy’ system inputs being applied to a modern nurse Call system head-end is matched only by the similarly ever growing variety and quantity of required outputs.
This is accommodated by the generous selection of SmartCom Server connections and the Winwatch software’s ability to cope with existing and future connectivity needs.
An important feature of Winwatch is the extensive range and flexibility of various possible reports. This for example allows both average and specific staff attendance response times to be reported for different locations for different intervals such as day and night shift.
It’s even possible to filter those reports to identify staff response performance during lunchtime or perhaps weekend and holiday intervals.
These reports can be manually generated and printed or automatically sent as a periodic emailed PDF or Excel formatted report to one or more destinations.
Reports can include a combination of location, person and events thereby allowing management to maintain and adjust individual Resident Care-Plans to suit changing circumstances of those aging and frail Residents.
