Checkit for Care Homes
Care homes face unprecedented challenges with increasing costs, tough Care Quality Commission (CQC) standards, enforced by regular inspections, while still needing to provide the standard of care that residents require. Checkit enables Care home managers to increase efficiency, reduce costs and safeguard resident safety, now and in the future.

Interactive Digital Checklists
Safe guard resident safety. Improve compliance
Every resident has different needs for care and medication. Regular checks have to be carried out to safeguard residents and ensure food and medicines have been taken correctly. This needs to happen at specific times and in particular ways for every individual.
Checkit replaces paper-based systems with a centralised, interactive cloud-based way of managing the multitude of critical tasks that staff need to do on a daily basis. Completed activities are recorded, timestamped and automatically uploaded to the cloud, providing a full audit trail for managers, relatives and doctors.
If things go wrong it is imperative that fast, effective action is taken and managers quickly alerted. Checkit dramatically reduces management and reporting burden enabling managers to run a more efficient care home and take control of the essential tasks and procedures involved in resident’s care including food safety, hygiene, medical emergencies, drug administration and facilities management.
