LGA Report: Transforming social care through the use of information and technology


The LGA’s Care and Health Improvement Programme and Institute of Public Care launched a report at the National Children’s and Adult Services (NCAS) Conference, 2016 to present the role and use of technology in the transformation of social care and integration across care and health, offering a place-based vision for future service delivery.

 

The report aims to highlight the emerging role of technology in transforming social care services and enabling care and health integration – including case studies of the introduction and use of technology to deliver improved outcomes for social care service users and, in the context of integration, patients. It also showcases the current and future roles of technology in facilitating demand management, delivering cost efficiencies, and mitigating against systemic risks.

 

The case studies featured in the report include Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland’s use of the Care and Health Trak data tool.
