Joensuu, Finland, 12 October 2021
North Yorkshire County Council has selected Fastroi Ltd to provide an electronic rostering and monitoring system for its Health and Adult Care Services. The council was looking for a user-friendly system. The chosen system will allow a person-centred approach with effective and timely scheduling of appointments, and it will also improve internal information flow and reporting.
The system is expected to be used by the council’s 1,200 employees who provide domiciliary care in Elderly Persons’ Homes (EPHs) through Reablement Services and also in their Extra Care units.
The provider of the system, Fastroi Ltd, has a long track record in developing health and social Care Management Software in its native Finland. Among its credentials are ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification. In addition, Fastroi has ISO 27001 certification, which confirms that it complies with the international standard for information security.
“We are excited to start collaboration with North Yorkshire County Council. As our software, Real-Time Care, is at the beginning of its product life cycle, we see this as a great opportunity to learn more about our UK clients and their needs, and share our 18 years’ experience in developing person-centred social care software,” says Mervi Hyvärinen-Saarelainen, Product Director at Fastroi.
The contract is initially for three years with an option of extension for additional two years.
“We feel this is a fantastic opportunity for Fastroi to work with a council that has the size and stature of North Yorkshire. With the county being so diverse and offering such a wide range of services, we feel that our software, Real-Time Care, can help to make big improvements in the way the council works and enhance the great support it offers to people,” explains Mike Richards, Fastroi’s UK Sales Manager.
