Omega - The National Association for End of Life Care
The team at Omega work with GPs and carers to improve the quality of end of life care throughout the UK. Having identified a need to tackle poorly managed care for patients nearing the end of their lives, the organisation was set up to provide support to both professional and informal, unapid carers.
Omega approached DCSL Software in late 2008 to build the first in a collection of online database tools. The system provides GPs with a sophisticated questionnaire to complete relating to the death of their patients and how the end of life care was managed. This information is compared to the National picture to provide GP practices with direction on how to improve. To read our case study on this project, please visit the Case Studies page.
Following the success of this initial system, subsequent versions of the tool aimed at other types of carers have been created and launched, including a tool dedicated to improving the standards of end of life care in care homes across the UK.
We continue to work closely with Omega NAELC to design and deliver simple-to-use, yet powerful database driven systems, and would welcome an opportunity to discuss how we can help you.
