Company profile

At Care Vision we believe care may never be the same again. Outstanding care truly is at the heart of everything we do, with a clear purpose of less admin, more care.

Growing up working in a family-owned care home, Rishi Jawaheer saw first-hand the main needs in the care sector; to cut down on the burden of manual paperwork while maintaining good practice and to encourage people to become more involved in care. Using his experience as a registered manager, with some of the smartest minds in tech, Rishi was driven to create Care Vision, an all-in-one cloud-based care management system, incorporating all your care and admin into one easy-to-use system.

Care Vision acts as a bridge which uses technology that organises care work and ensures a safer, better, more intimate experience for every member of the community, from administration, to family, friends and the people we care for.

Care Vision provides a variety of uses such as:

  • An easy-to-use system for care workers, managers, and relatives; bringing care and admin into one platform, to manage time, attendance, rotas, HR, housekeeping, maintenance etc.
  • An eMar system, reducing medication errors.
  • An intuitive daily notes section.
  • A pictorial food order system that allows the individual to choose from a menu.
  • Daily reminders in the form of care routines.
  • Care plans/risk assessments/life stories.
  • A family app that allows families to keep track of their loved one’s wellbeing.

Care Vision gives you the freedom to access it using mobile, tablet, laptop, or PC in real time whilst safely securing and storing data within the platform.

Built flexibly to adapt to services of any size, large or small, Care Vision’s structured, interactive features engage care workers in sharing information with the end user and their family.

Company profile

PredicAire is reimagining the delivery of care within a care home setting. It is the first end-to-end AI-powered care management solution under one data ecosystem able to predict person-centred outcomes to help prevent unnecessary outcomes with real-time data provision.

Delivering better care and better outcomes are at the core of PredicAire’s solution, overcoming the challenges and frustrations experienced by users and providers of care:

  • Large amounts of time-consuming administration.

PainChek UK

Tel: 0333 577 3397


  • Care homes.
  • Nursing homes.


  • Digital pain assessment tool.

Company profile

PainChek’s mission is to provide a voice to those who cannot verbalise their pain, such as people living with dementia and other cognitive impairments. Its smartphone-based medical device uses facial-analysis and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to identify involuntary micro-facial expressions indicative of pain. Combined with other non-facial indicators, PainChek® enables fast, effective, and reliable pain scores, with the whole assessment process taking less than two minutes to complete.

Pain and dementia share a complex relationship, and understanding this relationship is key to effective pain management. In the UK, around 70% of care home beds are occupied by residents living with a form of Alzheimer’s or dementia. Of this group, 80% experience pain at any one time, with 50% experiencing persistent pain.

PainChek® is fast and easy to use. The smartphone camera records a short video of the person’s face then analyses the images using facial recognition analytics. It automatically recognises and records facial muscle movements that indicate levels of pain.

The caregiver then uses PainChek® to observe and record pain-related behaviours, such as movement and how pain is vocalised by the person. Finally, PainChek® calculates an overall pain score and stores the result. This allows the caregiver to monitor the effect of medication and treatment over time.

PainChek® is a world-first pain assessment medical device – with regulatory clearance in Australia, Europe, Canada & New Zealand.

Nikki Thompson, Assistant Director for Practice and Development at the Salvation Army, said: ‘Going digital has reduced staff workload and more time is now spent with residents instead of completing paperwork, which boosts morale and happiness across the homes.
‘Having all the governance and compliance information in one place and accessible at all times is great. The integration is transforming our care homes and we’re so thankful we’ve gone digital!’

Our agile product can be quickly adaptable in times of crisis. New Coronavirus-specific features were added at the offset of the Coronavirus pandemic. The Relatives Gateway keeps relatives informed about the health and wellbeing of their loved one when they can’t be there.
Person Centred Software is leading the way in joined up care, being the first to send the Hospital Pack electronically from within the software to urgent care providers, and working directly with GP Connect at NHS Digital to bring GP information to English care homes.
Person Centred Software is certified with Cyber Essentials and Mobile Care Monitoring is a secure solution to keep your personal data safe with infrastructure that exceeds GDPR’s requirements.
