CarePulse is the bed capacity management system being used by all care homes across London.
Having access to up to date bed vacancy information is an invaluable source of intelligence for health and social care services; helping to ensure people who are in need of care home support are placed in a suitable and comfortable setting.
Care homes are able to share live bed vacancy information with hospitals, brokerage teams within CCGs or Local Authorities (LA), and other care homes.
