Has the implementation of image-based care within the organization been complex up to now, or have you not yet dared take the step? You are not the only one. Digitization within (home) care organizations can feel like a significant change – even though the benefits are enormous. Below are 7 challenges that many organizations face when implementing image-based care.
1. Digitization in healthcare comes too soon
Digitization of home care seems like a massive step within the organization. You have the feeling that the organization is not yet geared up for it, that you are not yet ready for image-based care:
- where do we start?
- which steps are essential for a successful implementation
- what investment does it involve?
- How can our healthcare professionals effortlessly adopt image-based care?
- What benefits does it bring – for the elderly and for our organization?
During a live demonstration, the Memory Lane consultants will show you how image care works in practice. During a masterclass on ‘digital innovation in (home) care,’ they will guide you towards successful implementation and train the care professionals to effectively apply image care in your organization.
With the digital infrastructure of the Memory Lane Connect Center, you can implement effective video care within a few days – not weeks. Elderly people immediately feel that the attention and quality of their care increases – and they will immediately feel less lonely.
2. Implementing image-based care requires structured planning
Successful implementation of image-based care requires good preparation and planning. After all, an image-based call requires preparation. How often do you approach a client, and how do you do that most effectively? It is easier than you think. As a care professional, you can and may rely on your own qualities. Memory Lane offers you a helping hand. Together we will make scripts to structure the conversations. Together we will determine which data you wish to retrieve to provide you with the most effective care at a distance.
3. Older people have a digital disadvantage
The clients – the elderly – are often limited digitally. This can create resistance during the implementation process. While practice shows that especially the elderly benefit from the extra attention they receive through the Memory Lane CareScreen. The contact frequency goes up considerably from care professionals and the immediate circle of caregivers (family and friends). Loneliness among the elderly is significantly reduced. In addition, the Memory Lane CareScreen is very user-friendly and offers a lot of extra entertainment functions.
4. Healthcare professionals are insufficiently prepared for image-based care
Research has shown that a large proportion of care organizations are inventing the wheel themselves. Staff is often not yet ready for image-based care, and digital innovations sometimes seem very complicated. But the opposite is true. With our digital training course, employees are optimally prepared for image-based care. Remote care becomes part of their daily work.
5. Wanting too much at once
People often think that digital innovations require an organization’s entire infrastructure to be overhauled within the healthcare sector. We often hear voices in the industry saying, “starting small is not an option.” Also, here the opposite is true. With the digital infrastructure of the Memory Lane Connect Center, it is straightforward to start a pilot with only a few Memory Lane CareScreens with a part of the target group or with one or more offices. Satisfied? Then the number of Memory Lane CareScreens can easily be scaled up to other locations and other clients.
6. Digitisation creates resistance to privacy
Is image care privacy proof? The Memory Lane Connect Center has been developed with maximum privacy in mind. With a combination of ‘roles and functionalities’ determined by you, you are always and at every level in control of the privacy of the clients and the care professionals.
7. User data is not (correctly) analyzed
Imaging provides unique opportunities to get to know clients in a new way and thus help them optimally. Based on data, you will know, for example, what is the best time to contact the client. Which behavioral patterns clients have (or develop) and what you should pay attention to. All this enables you to provide more efficient and practical remote care. 100% Privacy proof. The Memory Lane Connect Center offers extensive possibilities to interact with clients in this new way and seek maximum connection.
