Scheduling & rostering

Plan and view your domiciliary care visit schedule in one easy to use screen. Book ad-hoc, recurring or group activities, create a shift pattern, and quickly see any unallocated or problem visits. A 6 star rating system will match the best carer to a visit based on location, preferences and skills.

Digital care plans

Digital care planning in one click. Based on the information recorded, IQ:careplanner automatically generates a person-centred care plan for each of your clients. Medications, allergies, professional contacts and keysafe numbers can all be recorded within a client’s record, as well as any personal preferences. You can even include a picture to help your staff know who they’re meeting for the first time.

Reporting & data

Access the information you need, tailored to your role. IQ:careplanner’s mini-CRM shows what needs to be done each day - whether that’s finding a replacement carer, responding to a service user’s message or booking a training session. And with both standard and custom reports, you can see everything from productivity to financial projections.

Client & family portal

Involve your clients and their loved ones. Service users and nominated family members can log-in to our online portal to view care plans and visit details, helping them understand and make informed decisions about their care. They can also send messages to your care team and upload memories and important dates, so you can personalise the care you provide.
