QPS and Leecare collaborate on data capture
As part of a multi-phase project, the new functionality will allows users to capture data directly from an organisation through Leecare's Platinum 5.0 interface.
Data can be collected through Leecare's browser-based software according to QPS Benchmarking’s criteria and definitions, which the companies said will assist users in maintaining data integrity directly at the point of capture.
Once specified data periods have ended, simple data output is performed by Platinum 5.0, allowing users to report on the QPS Benchmarking KPIs, which measure clinical, safety, residential lifestyle, HR and financial performance, and can help providers achieve Aged Care Accreditation Standards compliance.
“Dataflow automation for aged care applications has been growing in importance for residential aged care operators, primarily due to their increased responsibility for efficiency, compliance, quality and tracking, as well as knowledge capture,” QPS Benchmarking general manager Adam Holcroft said in a statement.
“QPS Benchmarking’s unique approach of embedding data capture capability within aged care software enables customers to capture and report data using standard operating procedures.”
Mr Holcroft said that through the QPS Benchmarking system, users can access, analyse and report on this data, enabling them to implement corrective actions.
“For most customers, a single dataflow will help organisations to identify and respond to abnormal events, reduce the work involved in data collation, thereby significantly increasing compliance, knowledge capture and in turn productivity,” he said.
Leecare Solutions CEO Caroline Lee said that bringing together the technologies “will not only benefit aged care providers, but the industry as a whole, as providers endeavour to improve risk management practices and the overall quality of care and lifestyle of the residents they look after”.
