Nightingale

Nightingale's team worked closely with a range of WA community service providers to build a solution to manage consumer-directed care.

Nightingale was built from the ground up based on a wish-list of features.

We’re very proud of the result, and feedback from our clients has been fantastic.

Nightingale is designed to support the transition to consumer-directed care models such as WANDIS, NDIS, CHSP and Aged Care Packages.

Our extensive community sector experience has taught us that funding regimes are always under review. Changes in government, government policy, employment law and practices, emerging practice initiatives and competitive forces create a constant state of change.

We are committed to ensuring that Nightingale remains, fresh, relevant and current and that you get the most out of your investment.

Nightingale has a trusted long-term partnership with ANSON Management Consulting which means that together we can provide you with all the services associated with assessing the optimum implementation of Nightingale for your organisation. This includes ANSON's services in organisational consulting, needs analysis, change planning and management, and implementation reviews.

BENEFITS

CUSTOMISED

Nightingale is designed to work with your needs. You have full control of all aspects of the system and can tailor it to suit your requirements. That includes your team roles, forms, case notes, pay rates, support funding streams, leave approvals, rostering calendars and much more. Our team is available to help you adjust procedures, manage change impacts and get the most out of your investment.

CLIENT-CENTRED

Nightingale is entirely devised to be person-centred. That means it will provide you with an effective tool to allow your clients to drive their own strategies, plans and outcomes.

ECONOMICAL

Our clients tell us Nightingale pays for itself in a year with reduced administrative overheads. The ability to customise means as things change in your organisation, you can adapt the system without having to pay a developer – which saves you both time and money. It provides better visibility so you can more efficiently stay on top of client outcomes, compliance, incidents and funding streams.

FLEXIBLE

Nightingale allows access wherever you are, from PC, any smartphone or tablet. That means your case notes can be collected in real time, or offline on the app. Your data is stored in a secure, managed environment, which includes backups and encryption.

LOCAL

You will be dealing with a local business that has developed a software solution based on input from local community service organisations. Which means we provide in-person support by visiting your offices or by offering telephone advice. And all in local time.
