Leveraging AI can be a game changer for your social care business.


Social care is a critical aspect of the healthcare system that is often underfunded, understaffed, and quite frankly forgotten about!  It would be easier to think that COVID is to blame for the pressure on social care however England’s crisis in adult social care long predated the pandemic. All but one council is spending a larger chunk of its budget on care, even though more than half have seen a fall in funding. The Health Foundation accuses ministers of failing to support social care users during the outbreak and says the sector was given a “far lower priority” than the NHS. These statistics highlight the need for innovative solutions to address the challenges faced by the healthcare industry. 

AI can help address these challenges by augmenting human capabilities, allowing admin and care staff to operate at the top of their capabilities. By automating repetitive and time-consuming tasks, AI frees up scarce care resources, enabling our incredible care professionals to concentrate on more critical aspects of patient care. Virtual assistants and automated rostering are just a couple of examples of AI technologies that can enhance patient care and reduce unnecessary visits to healthcare facilities. AI can also help with more mundane tasks: An estimated 30% of care costs are associated with administrative tasks, which can be made easier through automation. Furthermore, machine learning can carefully process more data than human care workers, giving AI technologies a leg up at early detection of declining health. 

By leveraging machine learning algorithms to analyse data, AI can help your organisation identify patterns, risk factors, and treatment responses, leading to more precise and personalised care plans. As a result, value-based care models—those focused on improving patient outcomes while controlling costs—can be significantly enhanced. AI can also help with early diagnosis, emergency call triage, and much more. By using AI, care providers can improve their efficiency, reduce costs, and support better health outcomes for the individual receiving care and that’s really what it’s all about. 

For instance, AI can help with patient safety Architecture can scan a service user’s face when dispensing medication to ensure there are no medication errors. This technology while impressive and potentially lifesaving just skims the surface. This coupled with visual medication identifiers drastically reduces the chances of medication errors. When we add predictive decline AI is not only more efficient but potentially lifesaving technology. 

While in 2015 drag and drop was great we are in the age of Alexa, Siri and the creatively named Google Assistant. If I want to set a timer for cooking chorizo sausages, checking the weather or listening to some Metallica I turn to my preferred virtual assistant Alexa. With Jack our helpful virtual assistant, the same is now true for seeing how many calls are uncovered or who is the power of attorney for Mrs Jones. 

In conclusion, leveraging AI can be a game-changer for your care business but not only this it also has the potential to save lives when used right! By automating repetitive tasks, freeing up scarce resources, and providing more personalised care plans, AI can help care providers improve their efficiency, reduce costs, and support better outcomes for people receiving care.
