A complete solution and everything you need to improve your home care business

A Brief History

QuikPlan has its roots firmly in the domiciliary care industry

The QuikPlan system began life in 2002 as a program written by founder Nick Patrick

QuikPlan started out as a program written by Nick to help manage the family run domiciliary care agency in Worcester. It didn’t take long before word got around that QuikPlan had drastically reduced the time and effort needed to administer the business.

Very soon QuikPlan was being used by other local domiciliary care agencies and it became clear to Nick that there was a gap in the market and QuikPlan could fill it.

In 2004 Nick decided to take the next step when he created QuikPlan Limited, and we have been helping agencies across the UK and Ireland run their businesses ever since.

Since those early days QuikPlan has grown and evolved to become the sophisticated domiciliary care system it is today. Supported by apps, web portals and communication systems we continually strive to meet the rising day-to-day realities of agencies.

QuikPlan will reduce workload and help improve your CQC rating

Reduce Workload & Improve Efficiency

Created to make light work of complex tasks

QuikPlan is there to substantially reduce your workload and to allow you and your staff to work much more efficiently. QuikPlan will handle those repetitive, difficult and time consuming jobs that all domiciliary care agencies have to deal with.

By using innovative design and technology QuikPlan can create staff rosters in seconds, especially if you use our template system. The finance module allows you to generate invoices and gross staff pay in seconds, all with accuracy and additional checks.

QuikPlan is fully customisable to meet your individual home care agency needs. Built as standard it has over 50 different types of management reports, giving you instant access to the crucial service level information required for business analysis.

Improve CQC Rating

Designed to help you improve your CQC rating

Through QuikPlan’s innovative QPLive! system you can monitor in near real time whether a call has started, providing total visibility on what is happening with your clients and keeping their needs central.

The system also allows you to monitor what happens during a visit to a client such as eMAR and tasks completion. Over the longer term client outcomes can be monitored so that you can see if your reablement targets are being met, ensuring they get the right care they need, when they need it.

Personalisation of a client, with the same carers visiting the same clients on a regular basis is important. Monitoring their long term outcomes will significantly improve your overall CQC rating. QuikPlan is there to help you record, document and prove to a CQC inspector how you successfully deliver care to your clients.
