Placing Social Care at the Heart of Integrated Care

09:30 - 10:30

Getting digital care right.

If we can get it right at an ICS level it will play a huge role in helping organisations to work together and deliver services that will benefit all.

With NHS Digital’s recently published design framework for place-based partnerships in ICS, as well as the decision to move ICS bodies to a statutory footing over the next year, digital health and care technologies will inevitably play an even bigger part within these systems. Yet only 21% of secondary care providers are digitally mature and 10% continue to rely heavily on paper.

As outlined in the Social Care White Paper in December 2021, the local authority and care provider backdrop is even more challenging, despite the announcement of new improved funding. So how can we make sure we are achieving digital transformation as we move towards integrated care?

Click here for Socitm’s latest thought leadership on this topic and made sure to visit Socitm’s stand at REWIRED as well as register to see Russ Charslworth chair the ‘Placing social care at the heart of integrated care’ session on the Integrated Care Stage on Wednesday 16th March.
