Benefits of NOVA e-Nursing, the Complete Nursing Home Care Software for Clinical and Financial Management in Home Nursing and Residential Settings

Residential legislation and standards place great emphasis on both the clinical and financial responsibilities the provider and Director of Nursing has to the residents and their families, each carrying equal importance.

NOVA offers a reliable system to ensure these expectations can be achieved and audited in an open and transparent manner. NOVA offers basic and practical solutions such as secure and confidential electronic storage of records, easy access to archived records, eliminates “missing paper documents” and omissions, alongside the ability to run complex analysis of clinical and financial auditing tools at the touch of a button.

NOVA is different, our approach to the financial aspect of our system mirrors out commitment to our clinical design.  We believe in a straight forward, efficient and effective approach.  We have listened to our customers and understand that we needed to prioritise a “smart process approach” throughout the development stages of NOVA.  We sincerely believe that our product will exceed your financial and clinical management expectations, without the confusion and unnecessary costs.
