Care and Nursing Homes

New and improved technologies are becoming more widely available and adopted within the healthcare market as new solutions expand the horizons of both medicine and medical interactions. There will always be a challenge on the hands of the IT departments working within healthcare trusts as they search for a fine balance between driving efficiency and innovation in the workplace whilst also keeping an eye on the budget.

Net-Ctrl has the experience and knowledge to match needs with the correct technologies, which will enable changes and improvements to your daily operations, and improve the interaction between your residents, staff and medical professionals.

Benefits of Wi-Fi for residents

Transitioning to life in a care home can be an anxious time for residents. However, technology has the power to make this a less isolating and more positive experience, by helping to keep friends and families connected.

  • Downloading books and games keeps minds active.
  • Facebook allows residents to stay in touch with loved ones and feel part of their daily lives.
  • Skype keeps residents connected over long distances, when families are unable to visit regularly.
  • In-room Wi-Fi offers privacy and peace of mind.
  • Emails allow residents to arrange visits and catch up on news.
  • Residents can watch videos of hobbies they enjoyed in the past, which helps to stimulate memories.

Introducing residents to the internet has numerous mental health benefits, improves morale and is a simple way to enrich lives and keep residents connected to the outside world.

Benefits of Wi-Fi for your organisation

The installation of a Wi-Fi network can significantly improve and enhance the medical services you offer residents.

Manage medication electronically

  • Connect to GPs and chemists outside of your care home.
  • Simplify your medication management and procedures.
  • Allow GPs to access medical records and put patients at ease in the comfort of their own room

Manage care plans electronically

  • Make life easier for managers and staff with one central, integrated system.
  • Simplify admin tasks and data entry to keep patient records secure and accurate.
  • Provide an efficient system that allows carers to spend more time with patients.

Currently only a fifth of care homes offers Wi-Fi as a service. 

Becoming internet connected allows you to care for every aspect of your resident’s well-being and helps differentiate your care home from the rest.

As well as wireless and wired networking, Net-Ctrl work with Care Homes on a number of other technologies including IP-CCTV, IP-Audio, access control and lockdown technologies.
