CoolCare saves care homes time and money by automating administrative tasks. It helps to prevent unnecessary overspend on items such as care home staffing, as well as boosting revenues through effective occupancy management and accurate invoice processing. Whether a single home or a multi-site group, CoolCare enables easy care home management and improves the profitability of your business.

Our years of experience in running care homes means we know the complexities of key operational processes, such as invoicing, and understand the pressures of running a 24/7 business. We truly get the needs of care home businesses and our software has been designed based on those decades of operational expertise.

As a result, care home and head office staff alike find CoolCare very easy to use. Its exceptional user-friendliness comes from that deep understanding of what a day in the life of a care home is really like. We understand the way care homes work and how staff will want to use the software to your business’ advantage. The software’s careful design therefore ensures our customers’ care home management is as simple and efficient as possible. That also encourages more usage of the system and improved accuracy, which in turn makes business analysis and planning easier.

Any information that requires action by your staff will be brought to their attention through their personal dashboard. Your staff’s time can therefore be better focused, giving them time to spend with residents and preventing potential errors.

  • Real-Time Care™ care management software.

Company profile

At Fastroi™ we believe that every residential and domiciliary care service deserves to be rated Outstanding.

This belief has driven us for the last 16 years, since Fastroi™ began their journey in Finland. As market leaders in care management software, we have over 1,000 installations and over 35,000 end users including large private care companies and urban municipalities.

We developed Real-Time Care™ to give care organisations the tools to manage their processes and take the pressure off their staff. This releases more time during the day to spend on caring. Real-Time Care™ offers care companies a cost-effective way to take control of their operations. Our service puts every aspect of care in one secure digital location, meaning that care plans can be created and updated online with the input of all the necessary professionals. Staff rosters and hours can be easily planned and optimised to best suit the business.

The problem with using pen and paper is that maintaining high standards is not easy over long periods. It is also difficult to demonstrate that processes are being adhered to. By switching to Fastroi’s Real-Time Care™, care providers are making a commitment to both their staff and service users to improve the quality of the care they provide. This has the added benefit of simplifying the inspection process and improving GDPR adherence.

Simply put, we make the process of care more efficient so you can concentrate on providing the best care possible.

Our icon-driven mobile solution allows care home staff to digitally record the care of residents as it is given – saving every care worker over an hour a day of paperwork and improving staff retention.

We help care providers to be recognised for innovative, transparent and person-centred care. CQC, CSSIW and Care Inspectorate regularly cite MCM in inspection reports as supporting providers to improve care quality.

Our system is used by over 1,500 care homes across the UK, 94% of which are rated as Good or Outstanding by CQC. MCM enables care providers to reduce the time spent on paperwork, exceed compliance measures and improve the quality of care.

Andrew Long, Chief Executive of Oakdale Care Group says, ‘Person Centred Software’s Mobile Care Monitoring system played a significant part in our achieving an Outstanding rating at Kingfisher Court’s first CQC inspection.’

Efficient creation and upkeep of person-centred care plans are informed by the real-time evidence of care, and accessible to carers at any time on shift. Body maps, wound care, review cycles, and assessments are all integrated to provide comprehensive, detailed, up-to-date care plans.

MCM gives managers the information they need quickly, accurately and in detail whenever it’s needed. All the usual reports and graphs are automatically created, and information can be shared securely with outside professionals to join up people’s health and social care journey.

The Relatives Gateway gives you the opportunity to engage more with relatives, share magical moments and give comfort that loved ones are being cared for, to promote an inclusive and transparent environment.
