Wishing you a happy and safe festive season from the team at VCare
The VCare team would like to wish you a happy festive season and our best wishes for 2021. It has been a crazy year packed full of challenges but we have still thoroughly enjoyed working with our existing VCare customers and wonderful to see so many new clients joining the VCare team.
Despite the interruptions we have still had an eventful year, have a read below of a few of our highlights of 2020.
Drop in sessions
Health and Wellbeing Webinar
- National Health Transfer Template
- Custom KPI Reports and Dashboards
While this year has brought its challenges we’ve also had some exciting developments. We launched our new website, vcare.ie. This website revamp went alongside our move to a new office, we are now located in Unit 14, Level One, Liosban Business Park, Tuam Road, Galway.
Drop in Sessions
Throughout the year, 30-60 minute drop in sessions have been made available to our clients. The drop in sessions have facilitated the expansion of the user knowledge base within client organisations. They are informal and attendees can join and leave as needed. Agendas are communicated in advance so staff can choose the content relevant to them. Drop in sessions will continue throughout 2021.
Health and Wellbeing Webinar
People experience these times in very different ways. Some cope really well, whilst others will experience levels of stress, anxiety and low mood which can feel overwhelming. VCare wanted to help frontline healthcare workers manage this stress, so we organised a one-hour online Zoom session with Hadas Levy, the Health and Wellbeing Lead at the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland (RCPI).
It was particularly helpful to gain an understanding of the importance of identifying and managing emotions correctly, Hadas highlighted how easy it is to misidentify emotions and as a result deal with them incorrectly, leaving the true root of some problems untouched.

National Transfer Letter Template
The Office of the Nursing and Midwifery Services Director in conjunction with University of Limerick and Nursing Homes Ireland have launched the National Transfer Document, for use when an older person is being transferred from residential to acute care settings.
VCare has added the Transfer Document and Health Profile to ensure our clients have the appropriate tools needed to effectively transfer residents to acute services. The new features in VCare will provide users with access to a prepopulated Transfer Document and Health Profile, which can be edited prior to completing the discharge event. All transfer letters that are printed will automatically be saved to the resident’s correspondence tab, to ensure a record is available if needed.
Custom KPI Reports and Dashboards
VCare has an extensive range of Care, Admissions, Occupancy, Prospects and Financial Reports and Dashboards that will support your organisation and reduce the amount of time spent on data gathering, cleansing and reporting, meaning you have more time to focus on resident care and positive outcomes.
Our new custom KPI Reports and Dashboards let us build Reports and Dashboards that support the oversight of Care, Prospects and Finance activities, ensuring you accurate up-to-date information.
We would like to wish you and your family a very Happy Festive Season and a safe New Year. We thank you for your continued support and look forward to providing you with some great enhancements in the new year.
Best wishes for 2021.
Our office will be closed from 18th December 2020 and reopening 11th January 2021.
