As a registered care provider, it is so important that you have the right tools to hand so that you can quickly record data and then ultimately assess how your residents' needs have changed over time. This way you can easily not only evidence your care but also adapt it to your residents' changing needs.

The chart is taken from a report generated by our Care Management System, Ablyss CMS.  The chart shows a resident’s MUST (Malnutrition Screening Tool) history.  The table clearly shows the date of the assessment and the member of staff that performed it.  It also shows graphically how the resident’s risk level has changed since admission to become Low Risk, an excellent achievement.
The MUST is a well-recognised industry standard assessment tool that care homes use throughout the country.  There are however a myriad of assessment tools available.  Some of these may be a personal choice, some may be preferred by your local council and others enforced by your head office.  One of the defining features of Ablyss CMS is its flexibility to suit your needs.  You can pick and choose from a number of built in assessments like Waterlow, Client Moving and Handling, Falls, Continence, ABC Charts and mental health assessments or you can simply design your own.
What do other people say?

   “I was generally happy with the processes set up in Ablyss CMS but some were just too generic for our needs.  Being able to customise the system ourselves was a huge advantage and kept the costs at a much more affordable level”

“The system is great, we love the fact that we have our own risk assessments and get things changed so quickly and easily with Ablyss CMS”
