Merry Christmas from Netsoft

It is satisfying to reflect upon Netsoft’s achievements this year, as 2015 reaches closure. New staff joined us this year and we have continued to establish relationships with new customers.   

Justine Twemlow now heads up Sales and Marketing. Her background in technical sales working with Government/Enterprise Business to SMB is a significant advantage in selling the Netsoft’s suite of products.

Nigel Guthrie has come on board, taking up the role of product manager. Nigel has 30 years’ experience in technology businesses. Nigel’s skills are heavily weighted toward operational roles, with experience encompassing the management of technical and administrative teams, plus service delivery, account and project management.

2015 saw a variety of new Netsoft clients including Christie Centre, Trio Support, New Era, Ngati Hine Health Trust, Lavendar Blue, and Presbyterian Support Otago.

Another significant 2015 addition to Netsoft’s portfolio of clients, Geneva Healthcare, will drive substantial changes within Care~Call that will lead to the emergence of a premium apex product for the NZ market; this is due to the Geneva implementation using a new version of Care~Call that uses the Microsoft SQL server platform.

Netsoft have responded to two key requirements from MOH. We have developed in conjunction with our clients, IBT functionality, and more recently Vulnerable Client that includes upgraded functionality and reporting.

The launch of Remote Worker with RDNS this year proved hugely successful. We have worked further with RDNS to continue to improve this product and will see it rolled out with a variety of other clients next year.

2016 will see changes in how Res~Call upgrades are rolled out. Going forward we are planning two significant upgrades per year for Res~Call, with the first upgrade planned for March/April. Megan and Justine have been working on Technical documents and have been preparing the road map to determine what features will be included in the first or second upgrades.  

You can expect to see a new look with improved flow, improved functionality for care plans, improvements to the assessment tool, clinical warnings, increased notification and warning options, amongst other things.

We will also be expanding our partner network with MediMap; Toniq, Greentree, MYOB AccountRight and Timetarget in 2016 was well.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all our clients and their families a very Happy Christmas and a safe New Year. We thank you for your business in 2015 and look forward to working with you again in the New Year.

Our office will be closed from 23rd December, 2015 and re-opening 5th January, 2016.

Netsoft mobile solution - a success at Royal District Nursing Service

About RDNS NZ
Royal District Nursing Service New Zealand (RDNS NZ) is a leading provider of home-based healthcare solutions for people living in their own homes across the Southland, Otago and Auckland Districts. RDNS NZ is currently providing care and support each week to over 2000 clients. This is delivered by our team of over 300 dedicated Community Support Workers. We also provide clinical care management and coordination by Registered Nurses and Occupational Therapists.

The Challenge
RDNS NZ wanted to remove their paper-based time sheet system and record appointment information such as start and finish times, travel time and kilometres, and ensure any updates to client information are recorded at the point of care. The solution needed to be easy to use, be secure and integrate with their existing business processes.

The Solution
Carer Portal (similar to Remote worker) was written specially for RDNS NZ. The Netsoft middleware extracts timesheet and activity data from the RDNS patient management system. It then sends the timesheet and activity data securely to the mobile device. Alerts and reporting have been setup to keep the RDNS management team up to date with client and staff activity. The data is then sent back to the RDNS patient management system, removing the need for duplication of effort in the entry of data.

The Result
According to GM of Technology Iain Boyd: “The implementation has been a great success. The Netsoft middleware seamlessly integrates with our patient management system and the mobile application. This means that we can monitor client care with ease.”

Iain also commented: “I have found Netsoft to be responsive and thoroughly professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Netsoft as a technology partner”
