The Aged Care Standards and Accreditation Agency Ltd (ACSAA) is responsible to manage the aged care accreditation process by way of the Accreditation Standards, to promote high quality care & to assist residential aged care facilities in improving service quality.
Experience shows that a Residential Aged Care Facility is in the best position to comply with all four Standards when appropriate software is properly used to perform clinical and administrative management.
SARAH Residential was designed from the outset to cover all four of the Aged Care Standards and is field-proven to provide confidence and compliance.
SARAH software suite has practical benefits for residential aged care facilities:-
- Accreditation compliance – covers Standards 1, 2, 3 & 4
- Tools for continuous quality improvement
- Improved resident care and reduced nursing administration work-load
- Reduced business administration work-load & improved financial control
The correct use of SARAH Residential will ensure that accreditation worries & stress are in the past.
By design, the day-by-day use of SARAH Residential software assists you to maintain your documentation, & keep your data up-to-date, in preparation for accreditation visits. There is no longer the need to spend time in frantic preparation at each facility ahead of a planned inspection, preparing to stave off a fate-worse-than-death. Even a random inspection will be a breeze, and probably over in a short time.
The facts speak for themselves. Of all the RACFs in Australia using SARAH, not one has ever had an accreditation problem due to the correct use of SARAH. Never. Not one.
This is because the database in SARAH was the first in Australia to cover all four standards for residential age care facilities. Even today, imitators cannot rival the confidence & completeness that is delivered by SARAH.
SARAH, now with ACFI Online Claiming, is an integrated Care and Management software system designed specifically for Residential Aged Care Facilities. Nursing staff have declared SARAH to be, “Nurse-friendly”.
The SARAH software suite is used daily around Australia to manage thousands of ageing-in-place beds (High Care, Low Care and ILU). SARAH software delivers a return-on-investment through improved nursing & administrative efficiencies.
