Case Study

The Priory Care Home

In early 2023, The Priory care home in Monmouth approached ActiveIT to help them improve their IT infrastructure.  Like any professional organisation, the senior management team at The Priory knew the importance of an effective IT setup.

They were aware that their current systems were outdated and causing inefficiencies in their operations.

The care home needed a company that could help modernise their IT, improve their internal communications and maximise their productivity.

The Priory care home had an internal need to improve their IT infrastructure as they knew that their current setup was not sufficient to meet their requirements.

There were a number of specific issues that ActiveIT were asked to address, which included the following:

Broadband & Wi-Fi

The broadband was poor, the Wi-Fi did not cover the entire premises, and the PCs were old and inefficient. As a result, staff had difficulty accessing the necessary information and carrying out their duties efficiently.

Medication Records

One of the care home’s main requirements was introducing a new system to record any medications and updates in real-time, as they wanted to ensure that they were providing the best possible care to their residents.

Staff Time Keeping

In addition to the medication recording system, The Priory care home also wanted to upgrade their timekeeping system for staff. They were interested in a digital system that would be easy for carers to use and would accurately reflect the hours worked and tasks completed.

Apart from addressing the specific IT issues faced by The Priory care home, ActiveIT also provided ongoing support and maintenance to ensure that the IT infrastructure remained up to date and efficient. This support included regular software updates, hardware maintenance and technical support for any issues that arose.

Conclusion:

With ActiveIT’s help, The Priory care home was able to significantly improve its IT infrastructure, providing better services to its residents and increasing efficiency in its operations. The installation of a leased line, customised software solutions, and a biometric timekeeping system helped The Priory care home address specific IT issues and improve its overall operations. ActiveIT’s ongoing support and maintenance ensured that The Priory care home’s IT infrastructure remained up to date and efficient, providing a solid foundation for its future growth and success.

With ActiveIT’s help, The Priory care home was able to significantly enhance its IT infrastructure, providing better services to its residents and increasing efficiency in its operations.

Here are some of the specific improvements we helped the team make.

Broadband & Wi-Fi

ActiveIT provided a comprehensive Wi-Fi solution that covered the entire building, including separate networks for staff, residents, and visitors. These networks were securely segregated to ensure the privacy and security of all users. ActiveIT also installed access points throughout the building to ensure strong and reliable connectivity.

ActiveIT recommended a biometric timekeeping system that would not only reduce payroll costs but also increase control over staff attendance and working hours. This solution helped The Priory care home save a considerable amount of money on payroll and improve overall staff management.

To address this requirement, ActiveIT recommended a customised software solution that would allow staff to record any medications and updates in real-time, ensuring that residents receive timely and accurate treatment. This system not only improved the quality of care provided but also increased the efficiency of the staff by reducing the time required to record and update information manually.

Full cabled computer replacement: The Priory care home’s staff PCs were old and inefficient, causing significant delays and inefficiencies in their operations. ActiveIT recommended a full cabled computer replacement, ensuring that all staff had up-to-date and reliable computers to carry out their work.

Secure Firewall: To protect The Priory care home’s IT infrastructure from cyber threats, ActiveIT installed a secure firewall that could detect and block any malicious traffic.

Configured everything to work: ActiveIT ensured that all the IT systems, including the new phone system, were configured to work seamlessly together. This included setting up email systems, cloud services, and other essential applications.

Proactive Maintenance and Support Contract: ActiveIT provided a proactive maintenance and support contract, giving The Priory care home 24/7 access to technical support. This ensured that any IT issues were resolved promptly, reducing downtime and ensuring smooth operations.

These solutions provided by ActiveIT helped The Priory care home to significantly improve their IT infrastructure and operations, allowing staff to carry out their duties efficiently and providing residents with better care services. The comprehensive Wi-Fi solution, full cabled computer replacement, secure firewall, and configured IT systems worked seamlessly together, providing a solid foundation for the care home’s future growth and success. Additionally, the proactive maintenance and support contract ensured that any IT issues were promptly resolved, ensuring minimal disruption to operations.

Care Home IT Support FAQs

Managing and supporting a client infrastructure requires a deep understanding of technical aspects, troubleshooting and resolving IT problems, and following and implementing platform management processes and customer service.

One of the key benefits of outsourcing the Technical Support function is the ability to leverage a whole team of technical experts with experience in running this for many other businesses, typically at a reduced rate to hiring in-house.

Implementing an IT system can improve efficiency, accuracy, and accessibility of patient records, streamline communication among staff members, enable remote healthcare services, and enhance overall care quality and resident satisfaction.

Our support services are calculated on several variables, including the size of the business, services required, number of offices and support hours needed. ActiveIT provides complete consultative services for prospective clients to review their current IT solutions and provide visibility of technical gaps and issues before pricing a full business IT support service to facilitate productivity, reliability and security for your organisation.

We operate technical support either as a 9/5 service during standard UK working days or as a fully 24/7/365 service supporting both email and phone support methods.

Choosing the best IT support company for your organisation is a difficult decision. Our recommendation would be to focus on leading companies who will perform a consultative review of your current platforms and offer a suggested approach. ActiveIT provides an IT health check for all new and prospective clients to identify areas for optimisation for our managed and co-managed IT services to ensure we can offer the best-managed solutions and peace of mind for your business.

Consider transitioning from a traditional fax machine to a fax to email service, which allows you to receive and send faxes electronically, eliminating the need for a physical fax machine and enabling easier document management.

To ensure security and privacy, choose IT systems with robust data encryption, access controls, and compliance with relevant regulations. Regular security audits, staff training, and implementing strict privacy policies can also safeguard resident data.
