A key priority within the Digital Health and Care plan is for each ICS to offer their local population a life-long, joined up health and social care record by March 2025, in which both clinical and non-clinical teams across health and social care settings will be able to access and input data, ultimately benefiting both the citizen and the providers delivering care.
Whilst this is still an ambition for many, across the country significant results are already being driven through joining up data and services at a neighbourhood, place or system level to improve care delivery for local populations.
This award will recognise the teams connecting health and social care to improve experience and outcomes for local citizens. Judges will be particularly interested in examples bringing together multiple partners to improve the quality of care, and that clearly evidence co-production across health and social care, with staff and patients/citizens fully engaged in project planning.
- All NHS organisations (including providers, partnerships, and systems), General Practice and primary care organisations, and their social care or local authority partners.
- Evidence must relate to a project, ongoing or completed within the 2 years up until the award entry deadline.
