Nottinghamshire County Council, in collaboration with Capita IB Solutions and Paying For Care, has developed a BEDs System to help Local Authorities overcome this issue.
With the focus on costs, and the value for money of residential adult social care at the top of the agenda, the BEDs system not only allows service users to receive the best possible advice, it also enables care homes to secure better financial support and it lets Local Authorities significantly reduce their costs while simultaneously increasing their standards of service.
The BEDs system helps Local Authorities improve their processes and their communication with care homes of all types. It enables the general public to interact with care homes via a public portal, and automates the payments procedure to care homes for Local Authority funded beds.
The BEDs system also provides much needed management information for emergency planning and improved financial advice for service users. The BEDs system is formed of three parts, which combine into one single database to give a full communications tool, electronic payment conduit and KPI management overview solution.
