Audits at HC-One with Radar Healthcare

Our audit management software aims to make auditing easier and more valuable with the ability to drive continuous improvement, maximise efficiencies, and reduce time spent on admin by centralising your healthcare audits digitally.

Antony Hall, Director of Insights, Assurance and Governance at HC-One explains what Radar Healthcare’s audit module means to HC-One, “We were thrilled that we had delayed our work on the auditing to coincide with Radar Healthcare’s new audit module, it has given us incredible flexibility to build our audits, refresh our audits, bring them in line with national guidance, making them really meaningful to people.

The managers will be able to do these very, very easily through a really simple platform on Radar Healthcare, and we’ll get the power of those audits.”

Calling Radar Healthcare “the spine” of HC-One’s integrated governance model

Antony Hall, Director of Insights, Assurance and Governance said: “We’ve been on a two-year journey to change the culture from being KPI driven to really understanding how learning can provide the highest quality of care to our residents. We’re creating a new innovative insights model and Radar Healthcare is integral to this. We want early warnings and holistic views across our homes. Having that central spine means we can start to have proper conversations around where we can develop meaningful quality improvements and the really exciting element is the insight.”

Being able to use data analytics to give us a real-time view and get ahead of the curve when it comes to something that could become an issue in one of our care homes will be a real benefit to our organisation.

Antony Hall, Director of Insights, Assurance and Governance, HC-One

Antony continued: “The reason for partnering with Radar Healthcare from the outset is that bigger picture. Implementing Radar Healthcare will provide us with seamless insights to enhance learning across our organisation and support us to achieve the very highest standards of quality which we pride ourselves on delivering.”

Doing things differently is something HC-One, and Antony in particular is very passionate about. When it comes to the implementation, the process is very much about the ‘art of the possible’ and Antony is keen to make use of the expertise across the Radar Healthcare team to get this right for the organisation. “We want our partnership with Radar Healthcare to be open, transparent and to have the ‘have you thought about doing it that way?’ conversations which really drive innovation” he explained. When it comes to success, it’s all about measurement. “As with any care service, there will always be ways we can improve, but the measurement has to be seeing those improvements in real-time as we’re learning from the insights we can capture on the new system.”

"We are thrilled that HC-One has chosen to partner with us to implement the organisational learning they see as fundamental in achieving future success. We are proud of what Radar Healthcare has achieved so far in just a few years and for the UK’s largest care provider to work with us is a testament to our platform."

Paul Johnson, CEO Radar Healthcare

Radar Healthcare CEO, Paul Johnson commented: “We’re giving healthcare providers the tools to use data in a strategic way so as well as freeing up carers to focus on caring, not paperwork, we’re helping to drive continuous improvement throughout organisations which results in a proactive approach to resident and patient care. ”Radar Healthcare has been widely adopted by healthcare organisations across the UK and internationally and Antony isn’t the only one who is looking forward to working with Radar Healthcare on its governance and improvement journey, commenting “There isn’t a single leader in the organisation that isn’t excited about Radar Healthcare coming. I’m confident this is the right platform to create organisational learning which is fundamental in making a real difference in the lives of older people in our communities throughout the UK.

We are thrilled to embark on this journey with HC-One and are looking forward to this new chapter in healthcare.
