Designed for children’s hospices with the flexibility to adapt for different markets, the Care Database offers an extensive list of features and benefits which exceeds the functionality and accessibility of any other care system.
The system has been created by Shooting Star Chase children’s hospice – a trusted developer with 15 years’ experience in managing clinical records and information for a quarter of all children’s hospices – and a UK software developer awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise and Innovation.
The Care Database is competitively priced and offered with full implementation, training and maintenance by the team who developed and use the system.
