GHM Care's new smartphone messaging system has been featured in the latest issue of Care Home Management.
Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock announced last week that he is making more than £200 million available to the NHS to improve technological standards across the board. Mr Hancock stated that the NHS “must make use of the best technology available to support some of our most basic needs”. Having spoken with hundreds of local GP surgeries and medical centres over the past few weeks, some of which were using telephone systems so overwhelmed that we were kept on hold for upwards of fifteen minutes before we were able to speak to a receptionist, we have comprised a list of five reasons why a fit for purpose telephone system should be at the epicentre of Mr Hancock’s technological overhaul of the NHS.
GHM Care has developed and launched a new messaging unit for care homes. The platform, called Nexus Care, allows staff to receive alarm notifications from any nurse call system directly on their smartphone.
