Are you thinking about making the move to becoming a digital care home? Great! But before you take the plunge, it's important to make sure you're ready. 

That's where our digital readiness assessment comes in.  We have worked in collaboration with Daniel Casson of Casson Consulting to develop a free digital readiness assessment tool which will identify any areas where you may need support in making the transition to digitising your care home. 

A digital readiness assessment is a great way to ensure that your residential care home is prepared for the switch to digital. The assessment will take into account your current level of readiness, as well as your specific needs and requirements. By taking the time to assess your readiness, you can make sure that you have everything in place to make a successful transition to becoming a digital care home. 

In addition, the assessment can help identify any areas where additional training or support may be needed. Ultimately, a digital readiness assessment is an essential first step in ensuring a smooth and successful transition to a digital care home.

 First, you'll need to assess the needs of your organisation and what kind of technology can help meet those needs. Following your assessment you’ll need a business plan - the plan should address any gaps in capability identified by the assessment along with the technology selection, employee engagement and training and system implementation. Once you've identified the right technology, you'll need to create a roadmap for implementing it within your organisation. This roadmap should include training for your staff on how to use the new technology, as well a schedule for rolling out the new system.

The Deputy Digital Readiness Assessment tool allows you to evaluate the vision, clarity, communication and knowledge levels that underpin your employees’ preparedness and readiness to adapt to a new digital culture. You’ll be able to see whether your care home possesses the potential and proficiency to adapt and manage the digital transformation process.
