For commissioners and providers
If you are a commissioner or a care provider, read on to find out more about how Konnektis can benefit your organisation.
What it is
Konnektis provides a communication platform that runs on a secure, dedicated, 4G internet enabled tablet that stays permanently in the person’s home and replaces the current paper Care Plan. It allows carers to digitally access, record and share information with all people involved in the support network, such as families, other appropriately permissioned informal carers, care managers and healthcare professionals. It also enables the individual being cared for to engage with their own care. Our personalisable home screen allows them to access a live updated care diary of who is coming and when, and use our integrated apps that help with a range of things from signposting to local services to supporting medication adherence.
How it works
Konnektis provides the tablet, 4G internet connectivity, training, installation and subsequent support. We currently work with Local Authorities on a monthly contract basis. Carers are able to digitally access Care Plans through the tablet that can be updated remotely and in real time by care managers, meaning that they are up to date. They can digitally record their notes and send live alert notifications to care managers.
Care managers access all this information through a web-based portal, with the most important information highlighted, such as non-attendance and urgent comments from carers. Key actions can be assigned and tracked for a more pro-active approach to care and improved regulatory compliance reporting. All activity in the Konnektis system is recorded, visible and auditable. Appropriately permissioned family members can also view information about the visit by logging on to an online portal that can be remotely accessed.
We are able to integrate with third party apps that can run on the dedicated home screen to support the person. We have an open approach to integrate with existing health systems.
Individuals are able to be more involved in their own wellbeing. Care Plans are up to date, meaning people receive the best possible support, and carers can send alert notifications so that problems are avoided before they escalate into crisis or hospitalisation. Care teams receive a more holistic view of the individual which supports more person-centred care delivery.
The web-based portal enables care managers to have better regulatory compliance reporting and more robust safeguarding. The richer data stored on the system supports better decision making and opens up data analytic opportunities to identify, develop and track areas of improvement.
Digitisation of pen-and-paper systems lowers administration costs and improves time effectiveness. It is a step in the right direction for the integration of multiple networks across health and Adult Social Care to ensure individuals are able to remain happy, healthy and independent at home. We have an open approach so that our platform can integrate with other systems identified by our users to allow people to get the right information at the right time.
