How an LTC Home Reduced Administrative Burdens and Paper Work by 63%?

Long-term care homes spare no efforts to keep residents safe and healthy. However, COVID-19 caused havoc in almost all Canadian LTC homes. That hit was eye-opening. Technology adoption in LTC homes has become the need of the hour. And when it comes to healthcare technology, telemedicine or virtual healthcare is the most thriving technology.

The Project

An Ontario-based long-term care facility contacted SyS Creations before the COVID-19 period. They had a few challenging yet most common requirements - eliminate most of the paper-based processes, enrich prescription order management, and reduce administrative burdens.

To satisfy the LTC home’s requirements, SyS Creations tied up with a virtual healthcare solution provider - Writi which is our prominent client. Soon, the SyS Creations team and the Writi team started working on the transition calendar, collaboratively.

Though the COVID-19 affected our transition calendar severely, our teams stayed on course and even provided 24/7 on-site support. As an upshot, one of the end results the client has been experiencing is a 63% reduction in administrative burdens that helps them to put more time for resident care.
