What is TONOS?

TONOS is an intelligent, digital solution that allows healthcare professionals to rapidly and flexibly optimise capacity planning and care pathways. Demand for care is automatically measured against available staff capacity in seconds. The outcomes help to deliver the right care at the right time, without any hiccups. Great for the service user and attractive to the healthcare professional. And with fewer FTEs.

Around 135,000 people in the Netherlands live in nursing homes or care homes, spread over more than 2,400 locations. Nursing home or care home residents’ long-term needs include assistance with getting up, going to bed, personal hygiene, dressing and undressing, meals, and the administering of medication. To allow residents to live their lives as they would wish, it is crucial that the required care be provided, whenever possible, at the time of their choosing.

In practice, this appears difficult to achieve. Delivering care on time is becoming an ever-greater challenge. Partly due to pressure on the budgets, and increasingly due to staff shortages. In the current situation, drawing up and adjusting the basic work rosters is time consuming: time that cannot be spent on the service users. In practice, work rosters are often still created manually, without insight into the actual demand for care. There’s a smarter way to do this!
