Leecare Solutions empowers care providers to deliver tailored care experience through standards conformance

More than 15 million people in the United Kingdom live with long-term conditions that require care and treatment1, and so it’s important that the provided care responds to their individual needs. Delivering personalised care is one of the elements of the NHS Long Term Plan – to make it ‘business as usual’. Ensuring information flows more easily between different services, to and from the individual themselves will help empower informed self-care and shared decision-making

Leecare Solutions, a software supplier for care of the elderly, has just become conformant with the PRSB’s Personalised Care and Support Plan Standard, meaning that their clients, including care providers, will be able to create and share digital care plans with people, their loved ones, and other professionals involved in their care pathway. In the past, multiple care plans would be created – with the PRSB’s standard, a single over-arching care plan can be shared digitally.

Person-centred care gives people more control and choice over their health by tailoring care to their needs, preferences and circumstances. In the research carried out by the Personalised Care Institute, nine out of ten people felt that person-centred care would help them manage their health issues more effectively2.

Caroline Lee, CEO at Leecare Solutions, said: “Leecare is thrilled to be empowering care providers to deliver exceptional and personalised support, through our innovative care management software and conformance with the Personalised Care and Support Plan Standard.”

Annick Guirate, UK General Manager at Leecare Solutions, said: “The conformance assessment process was well-structured, providing clear guidance on the steps required to achieve conformance. The support and assistance provided by Annette and Isabel were exceptional, making the process smooth and efficient.”

Lorraine Foley, CEO at the PRSB, added: “The transition to more personalised care cannot happen without digital efforts and ensuring that care plans fully reflect people’s needs – and our standard helps achieve this by making sure the right information is shared about the person’s care, whichever health or care setting they’re using. Conformant suppliers like Leecare Solutions help prove that the shift towards more person-centred approach is closer than we think and serve as a great example for other system suppliers to take the same route.”
