The introduction of a new system will form the platform on which savings and integration can be developed with our many partner agencies, and on which service improvements can be delivered for our 3,000+ system users and the community we serve. The County Council strategy has informed the following key priorities for the project:
— Integration with Health and other partners is key, reflecting our integrated commissioning and delivery in Adults, including direct working together under section 75, and the new locality-based multi-agency hub approach in Children’s.
— Supporting vulnerable people — the solution must be an enabler for our corporate outcome framework — that all vulnerable people who live, work, learn and are cared for will be safe; and that vulnerable people are more resilient and independent.
— Simplicity with straightforward recording, automated work-flows and readily accessible information, in order to improve efficiency and release practitioner time while supporting our compliance with relevant legislation.
— Information and our use of it drives the system; information sharing with partners underpins commissioning and delivery within a ‘whole system’ approach. We also need to make citizens’ own records more accessible to them.
— Transformation — from the national ‘Personalised Health and Care 2020’ digital roadmap through to local initiatives, we will require a system and supplier that are flexible and offer innovative solutions.
— Our strategic ICT&IM architecture requires integration of the social care system — with Identity Management, the Information Hub, Records Management, Customer Relationship Management, portals, and a granular access control model — in order to support the corporate programme and exploit wider benefits.
We are therefore looking to work with a supplier who has the capability to deliver to this agenda, respond to government and legislative changes and develop the product innovatively.
