hello

RITA

Reminiscence Interactive Therapy Activities

Our system can reduce falls, specialling, LOS, and improves patient experience whilst reducing costs.

We have been developing dementia software for the elderly since 1990 and are leaders in solutions for patients at high risk of falls, those with dementia and mental health conditions. Our software RITA (Reminiscence Interactive Therapy Activities) is currently in over 422 hospitals. The feedback received from our clinicians forms the basis of our ongoing software development. This is then released via complimentary upgrades to all our clients.

Supporting staff to prevent falls and keeping dementia patients safe

Offering significant benefits to clinical outcomes

Our therapy software is aimed at offering support for older people as a means of supporting them and reducing their agitation, isolation, depression and delirium. It has been positive in reducing harm, including:

  • Reduced Falls by 49.65%
  • Reduced Specialing (1:1) BY 71% E.G. 1 Trust (4 Wards) Saving Yr.1 £164K
  • Software supports dementia care mapping
  • Significant reduction in anti-psychotic medication
  • Reduced LOS
  • Dramatically increased patient experience
  • Significant improvements in patients with dementia that are unable to sleep
  • Supports dignity, respect and wellbeing for those patients at the end of life
  • Clinically led, improving the quality of patient-centered care
  • Improved Family & Friends results
  • Reductions in in-patient bed days
  • Improved interaction between carers and patient, and relatives and patient

We have implemented RITA in more than 422 hospitals throughout the UK. These include Acute Hospitals, Mental Health Trusts, Community Hospitals, Care Homes & Day Centres.

We recently purchased one of the ‘RITA’ units from My Improvement Network to offer one of the many beneficial therapies available and the results have been amazing. What a week we’ve had with the patients all enjoying and exploring what’s on there. They’ve done quizzes and enjoyed listening to the relaxation music. A small group of ladies played a game of mah-jong. It’s a real conversation starter and they are all so keen to ‘have a go’! Other patients have enjoyed just browsing and reading bits on the tablet too. So, thank you My Improvement Network.

A special new activity room for people with dementia and delirium has been piloted to boost patient care in an elderly care ward. The room in ward 42 at the University Hospital of North Tees has been created to help patients with dementia feel more comfortable in the unit. It offers patients music and a TV, as well as activities and puzzles on an iPad and touchscreen system provided by My Dementia Improvement Network for the day.

The integration and use of technology within healthcare offers significant benefits in both primary and secondary care settings. These benefits can extend across nursing practice from improving person centered care to enhancing daily workflows. Providing educational tools that empower and guide nursing staff through this digital revolution is critical and will help facilitate successful incorporation and safe implementation of technologies within nursing, by nurses.
