WINNER: South Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group – A platform for telling your story once

Delayed transfers of care in the central Cheshire health system were running at over 7 per cent, with multiple assessments of patients, information spread across several systems and paper records, and a lack of trust among partners.

The solution involved an app with shared data sets, available to both public sector and private partners, which gave a “single view” of patients who no longer had to tell their story repeatedly. 

A shared “trusted assessment” system reduced work for partners and enabled quicker discharge. Benefits have included halving the DTOC rate, less need to print or fax information, and more proactive management of patient needs.
