The National Care Forum (NCF) – the leading association of not-for-profit care and support organisations – is delighted to announce its partnership with Oomph! – the leading wellbeing provider for care settings.
The partnership offers NCF members new to the Oomph! On Demand digital platform two months free access, as part of the national effort to improve rehabilitation and intermediate care and support for people leaving hospital.
The recent government announcement regarding the £200m funding on discharging patients from acute beds into care settings to improve patient care and system flow presents an opportunity for care home providers to demonstrate their expertise to rehabilitate people to be able to live their best lives.
A well-designed rehabilitation or intermediate care service can improve people’s health and wellbeing outcomes, reduce hospital admissions and re-admissions, reduce delayed discharges and an unnecessary length of stay in hospital.
The Oomph! On Demand digital platform enables care workers to create bespoke rehabilitation plans for people living in care so they can take part in specialist activity programmes to expedite their recovery and return to good health.
The programmes are developed specifically to the person’s individual needs and interests and include wellbeing, mental health, dementia and nutrition, empowering care homes to put expert rehabilitation plans in place. Furthermore, Oomph! On Demand links to Electronic Care Systems and includes a detailed reporting function to measure and demonstrate rehabilitation outcomes for people.
Prof. Vic Rayner OBE, CEO of the NCF said:
“The National Care Forum is committed to quality care outcomes for people drawing on care and support. Care homes play a vital role in supporting people leaving hospital to rehabilitate to live fuller, healthier lives. We’re delighted to partner with Oomph! and believe that access to their digital platform will equip care homes to deliver and evidence impactful rehabilitation that makes a real difference to people’s lives.”
Steven Embleton, Product and Operations Director, Oomph! said:
“An effective specialist rehabilitation programme can make a huge difference to how well individuals recover from illness and injury. By being equipped with Oomph! On Demand care home providers can give specialist and personalised programmes of care to patients coming out of hospital as part of their rehabilitation.”
NCF members can take advantage of this time limited exclusive offer by contacting Oomph!
Oomph! is part of Person Centred Software (PCS).
