Data Café: The Power of Data in improving Care Quality
Date: Wednesday 24 August 2022
NHS Digital have recently updated their public-facing information on the outputs of the Social Care Programme. Over the 5-year lifespan of the programme, NHS Digital worked collaboratively with Local Authorities and Care Providers on a broad range of digital pilots and initiatives. This included funding Digital Social Care and the National Care Forum’s Hubble Project.
NHS Digital released 3 waves of funding over the programme lifetime:
There are a wide range of outputs from this programme that have seen a positive impact on not only social care but also health and care integration more broadly. A particular success is the development of care provider interoperability standards in collaboration with the Professional Records Standards Body, HfT, Leicestershire and Rutland County Councils (LLR), South Gloucestershire Council, Sutton Council. These new standards support the better transfer of data as people move between health and care settings.
With over 100 projects now completed, each with an evaluation report and case studies, it is worth visiting the Social Care Programme webpage to find out more. If you would like to see which projects happened in your area, you can visit NHS Digital’s interactive map.Back to News
