Frequently Asked Questions about Care 20:20 from Standex Care

Why use Care 20:20?

Care 20:20 allows care to be recorded right from assessment level, through to care plans, risk assessments and on to real time care recording. Care notes can be typed or dictated and this means that all care notes are legible and will be easy to find.


Managers can create alerts for each resident and the system contains all regulated tools such as MUST, Waterlow etc.


Care 20:20 also makes collating reports easier and these can be done remotely if needed. Managers are completely in charge of the system and can dictate how it works throughout the service, from creating individualised care actions and allocating those to the right individuals such as Nurse, Activity coordinators, care staff etc.


Managers and Owners can view the care recording remotely which frees up a huge amount of time and streamlines the care provision and recording throughout the service. Care 20:20 supports outcome based care planning to achieve the aspirations, goals and priorities identified by service users.

Why should I use a digital care management system instead of my paper care plans?

Recording care notes electronically allows care notes to be legible, consistent, easily accessed and stored securely.


Finding information saved on the system is easy and can be done quickly and remotely if required. Alerts and reminders can be set by management which means that care support is not missed and everyone knows what needs to be done within the service.


Time spent running reports is reduced, care is recorded in a timely manner as per CQC guidelines and paperwork is greatly reduced saving time and indirect costs.

But how secure is it?

Care 20:20, as per our other software systems, is very secure. Your data is stored on servers which comply with DEDOS and GDPR guidelines. Data is backed up and we offer 99.9% access to the server across the course of the year.


Our system uses secure log-ins to make sure data is only accessible to people who should be viewing it. If you need any specific information on the security Care 20:20 uses please GET IN TOUCH.


You do not need your own server. Access to the system and access levels are set by the manager, so each service has complete control of who can access the data.

How easy is Care 20:20 to set up?

We have strived to make the implementation and set-up of the system as easy and as straight forward as it can be. We will support you all the way through the initial stages from the first training session and onwards. We provide standard care plan templates along with standardised text which can be edited and added to by each service. This allows thorough and person centred care plans to be created with ease. You can also create care plans straight from the pre-assessment tool built into the system.

Some of my staff are worried about using computers.

This is not uncommon and we have worked with services many times about their staff concerns. We find that a lot of the time the anxiety is about either losing data or breaking something!


But rest assured, we have built a robust and easy to use system, which staff from all different skill levels can get to grips with easily.


Staff can also record their care notes by speaking into the hand held device, meaning they don’t even have to type their notes if they do not wish to.


We can provide specific training for any staff that you feel may struggle, but in our experience once you’re up and running on the Care 20:20 system, any concerns the staff may have had soon disappear.


You can always book a demonstration to see how staff feel about the system. Click here to book now.

How can it help with my inspections?

Any system is only as good as the information recorded on it. We have provided a care system which will help all staff get the most out of their care notes and, if used correctly, can evidence the excellent care you are providing.


The system is designed to meet all UK based regulatory bodies and it is extremely easy to create truly person centred care using the support notes we have built into the system for you.


We also have the added function of an inspector’s log-in. You can set up your inspector on the system and they will have access to just what they need. This can also be used with any other third-party professional such as CPN, Social worker, Funder etc, so they will have the ability to see what care is being provided in a transparent and clear way.

Do I need to purchase any hardware to use Care 20:20?

Standex Systems has been providing care documentation, staff training and guide books for nearly 30 years, so we have a lot of experience and knowledge.


The software, developed by Carebeans, is modern and able to adapt to the changes within the care sector. We have been supporting care homes, domiciliary care services, hospitals, mental health services, and many more throughout that time, so your care recording needs are in safe hands.


We have built Care 20:20 to be easy to use and thorough, easy to set up and person centred and easy for services to adapt to their needs.

Can the system work off-line?

Yes. If you purchase the hand held devices from us they will include the care app, which will allow for seamless care recording in the event of a power cut or wi-fi outage.

What service level agreement to you have for the care homes?

We offer 99.9% access to the server across the year. We provide support 24/7, 365 days of the year, and we continue to update and add functionality to the system.


This is all part of the ongoing subscription fee and there are no hidden charges.

How long is the contract for?

We have complete faith that you will be happy with the Care 20:20 system, which is why we do not lock you down to any lengthy contract.


It is a simple 30-day notice period. So, if in the unlikely event that you wish to leave us, you simply need to provide us with 30 days’ notice and you will receive all your data in a readable format.
