Health and social care solution for the Single Assessment Process for Older People.
A solution that meets the requirements of the national service framework for Older People’s services in provision of a joined up IT solution to record health and social care information on their service users and patients.
Business Issue the Solution Addresses
The NSF for Older People sets national standards and models of care across health and social services for all older people whether they live at home, in residential care or are being cared for in hospital. Standard 2 of the framework identifies the need to ensure they are supported by integrated services with a well co-ordinated, coherent approach to assessing their needs and circumstances.
Implementing the requirements of the Single Assessment Process is a significant modernisation project and has far reaching implications for a wide range of professionals from nurses, to social workers and other health professionals.
Our solution deploys the Corelogic Framework application in a SQL Server 2000 environment, allowing caseworkers to rapidly capture and record data.
The solution helps professionals make better informed judgements about individual patients’ treatment, whilst monitoring how they are performing against set targets to help raise operational and efficiency standards.
The application, SQL Server and Windows 2000 server flexibility allows authorised users to access data from any computer within health or social services, providing case workers with the ability to work much more flexibly.
In addition the solution consolidates a myriad of information previously held in disparate systems, producing the additional benefit of allowing much improved local and national reporting via Reporting Services and Access 2000 Projects.
