Previously using manual methods including paper and Excel, Sequence Care Group decided that it was time to go digital. But why did they choose Radar?
Russell Day, Head of Quality and Performance, explains his experience of onboarding Radar Software in Sequence Care Group. Beginning the onboarding process, we discussed how they’ve found their journey so far with Radar and any highlights.
Who Are Sequence Care Group?
Sequence Care Group are experts in providing the right specialist support for each individual. They help people with a range of needs including learning disabilities, mental health needs and autism.
Through residential care and supported living, Sequence cares for individuals in the 3 different parts of the business:
- Sequence Care is based in London and supports those with a high requirement of needs. Focusing on those with learning disabilities, Sequence Care provides supported living and residential care.
- Progress Housing is situated in Worthing and helps those with both learning disabilities and physical health needs. They consist of a mixture of residential and supported living.
- Liaise Loddon is located in Hampshire and Basingstoke, aiding those with relatively high needs of requirement for learning disabilities. Here, they provide only residential living.
Relying heavily on manual processes
Before deciding to use Radar Software, Sequence Care Group relied heavily upon Microsoft Excel. Here, incidents were logged and then used to create reports. Doubling in size from 120 to 250 beds and they quickly found that Excel couldn’t cope; they needed a more sophisticated system.
Relying on manual processes and spreadsheets meant that tracking actions and lessons learnt were difficult to manage. Incidents sometimes took up to 3 days to be picked up which could result in critical actions being missed.
With nearly 3 years’ worth of data, it seemed like the right time to go digital in order to monitor all parts of the group remotely, so the Area Managers can access documents online, without the need to travel to a service location to collect a physical copy. This will save them both time and money.
“Radar strengthens what we do already”
Sequence Care Group selected Radar Healthcare as they felt it was the perfect fit for them. This was because of the software’s ability to fit with already created business rules and process, along with the flexibility to integrate systems with APIs. Having all Sequence’s processes and documents in one easy to access place was essential for the business to continue running smoothly.
With Radar, Sequence are hoping to achieve greater transparency and tidying of their business processes. They’re looking for assurance that they are continuously compliant without needing to manually check data and reports. Working together, we’ll be able to help them to strengthen what they already achieve.
Furthermore, the analytics provided through Radar’s dashboard allows any trends to be spotted quickly and a more proactive approach to these findings can be carried out.
“Radar gives us the opportunity to pick out trends quicker than we’ve ever been able to do before”
Looking to the future
Going digital is one step towards the future, but what’s next? Sequence are looking forwards to smoothing out their business processes and continuously improving their quality of care with the support of Radar’s software.
