Why should I move from a paper system that my staff is familiar with and that seems to be working fine?
There are many factors about an electronic system that are compelling enough to switch. The more obvious is ease of being able to locate documents and details faster. Regulations require seven years of record keeping, which can require prime space to be used for file storage. Software can help organize records and schedules, which saves time and money, leaving more time for your staff to take care of your residents which is what it's all about.
