The subsidiary objectives of this project are:
1. To improve checkup and treatment load functionality: Staffing level and appropriate skillmix per shift can be more easily determined by the shift modules. This leads to less time spent in designing and amending roasters.
2. Better care planning: Time spent on care planning is reducing, while the quality of what is recorded improved. This makes for more complete care plans and more complete assessments and evaluations.
1.4 Significance of the Study
