Adult Social Care Projects

Projects in Adult Social Care aim to improve the experience of people who access both health and social care. Changes are being made to the way a range of information is collected and shared - for service users, patients and professionals. The overall aim is to ensure choice and control for the individual. By sharing information we reduce the number of times the same things need to be repeated to health teams, social care teams and carers, resulting in benefits for service users and professionals.

Key Objectives

The main objectives of projects are:
• to reduce the number of times an individual has to provide basic information;
• to reduce the time spent giving and collecting information;
• to help people to take control of their own lives by holding and providing their own information;
• to improve information about the range of services available and how to access them;
• to ensure professionals capture all relevant information and share with other professionals as appropriate;
• to respect confidentiality and the need for sharing in line with individual wishes;
• to establish a single set of rules for access to an individual’s information;
• to explore new technologies to allow individuals to participate in their own assessments and develop their support plans.
