Management tool to quickly identify care home risks launched

The Scottish government has commissioned a web-based management tool which will allow care homes to observe COVID-19 trends and quickly identify risks.

Launched on Friday 14 August, the Turas Care Management tool will enable all private and public sector care homes in Scotland to record information, including COVID-19 infection rates, demand on services and staff testing, in one central place.

The care management tool, developed by the Scottish Government in collaboration with the Care Inspectorate, Scottish Care and NHS Education Scotland (NES), will allow care homes to identify and address risks earlier during the pandemic as well as in the future.

The tool will provide:

  • A clearer national picture of conditions in care homes
  • Earlier warning of emerging trends and issues, allowing earlier interventions
  • Easier reporting to free up care home resources

Health Secretary, Jeane Freeman said: “This new web-based tool allows care homes to store information in one central place, whereas before they were required to report in different formats and through many channels, which tied up resources and made trend-spotting more difficult”.
