Our Technology

At SD Care (London), we dream of a world where every health care worker can be freed from mundane tasks through automation so that they can spend more time with those they look after.

Technology is changing the way we provide care for people in the community. We work to high quality standards and leverage on information technology to automate business processes. We firmly believe that quality, technology and innovation are the key drivers of productivity.

We run our business by prioritising the needs of clients and staff using a healthcare model that is based on providing compassionate care with maximum business efficiency.

Care Management with Birdie Care

Birdie Care manages all our Care Management and Care Delivery, through enquiry to assessments and care planning.

Care planning and provision are updated in real-time so care-givers know exactly the support required and when to deliver that support for each client. The care-givers use e-MAR to access medication requirements, including dosage and risks. Care-givers can now write daily activities straight onto the app which allows us to identify any medication errors quickly and take actions promptly. Previously, we completed all these notes on paper, which meant we could not pick up on medication errors quickly. Ever since the notes are digitised, they are securely stored and we can avoid unauthorised accesses or being misplaced. Service users or their families can also request access to care plans and assessments, daily dairies, or relevant documentation easily. For more information, please click here.

Care Analytics with Looker

Birdie Analytics is a tool that collaborates with Looker to provide key analytics for our Care Management and Care Delivery. It collects all the data from our rostering system to all the data our carers input on the app. This means that Birdie Analytics is the number one tool when it comes to evaluating our performance. Our analytics tool includes 27+ dashboards to help us gather evidence and complete audits which helps us stay on track with our progress.

Call Scheduling & Monitoring with CarePlanner

For our Call Scheduling and Monitoring, we use CarePlanner which allows care workers and supervisors to view their rotas for the next 7 days either on their phone, tablet, or computer where they confirm each appointment.

Service users can be comfortable in knowing that all calls are monitored in real time and that we will be notified if any visit is not completed. Our simplest electronic call monitoring solution is for care workers to simply log when they start or end a call by tapping a button on the CarePlanner Mobile App. Even if they do not have an internet connection at the time, the app will record the visit and upload it to the CarePlanner system when the signal returns. We also have NFC technology and hardware tokens for areas with poor signal. The mobile app will also record the care worker’s location at the time they pressed the button, which is then visible on a map in the CarePlanner system. We receive confirmation of completed calls or explanations for non-completed appointments in real time. This is to ensure continuity of care and provide a safe service to our service users. CarePlanner also automates our back-end processes such as rostering and invoicing, which improves efficiency and allows us to focus on what is really important – providing high-quality care to all our service users. Data protection and confidentiality are very important to us. The system uses the same encryption as online banking and is GDPR-compliant.
