Care providers are increasingly concerned about cybersecurity.

Additionally, cybersecurity was listed as one of the top three biggest concerns for health IT in 2019.
Using care management software that keeps your service user or loved one’s vulnerable medical information secure from external threats is essential. Furthermore, being able to offer staff, service users, and their families a secure communication channel through an app or portal is increasingly necessary in today’s digital climate. If a secure portal or app is available in your care home, it is imperative that staff remind and encourage family members to adopt and use this method for communicating and storing confidential information relating to their loved one.
