The Social Care Digital Innovation Accelerator 2020/21 - run by CC2i on behalf of the Local Government Association and benefiting from match funding from NHS Digital - launched an open call to councils in April 2020, to understand what their challenges were at the height of the pandemic. Following 50+ submissions, three medium term digital projects to support the safe and effective delivery of adult social care were selected:
1.) Active Intervention Management: A Data Driven Approach to Public Sector Multi-Agency Safeguarding
2.) Virtual Support for Vulnerable Service Users: Helping people with learning disabilities live more independently, with a dual focus employability and mental health and wellbeing in light of COVID-19
3.) A Digital Approach to Discharge to Assess (D2A): Developing a digital D2A platform to support a safe and timely discharge from acute hospitals to community health and social care
Across the projects, 15 public sector bodies are supporting technical providers to co-design the solutions to ensure they meet the widest set of local government and public sector requirements, and as such can be scaled up elsewhere in due course.
The focus of this session would be an overview of each of the projects, the challenges faced by the co-designing/co-funding councils/orgs, why these solutions are so important to deliver at this time, discovery & development progress to date, as well as the benefits and business cases.
The session will also cover CC2i's public sector co-funding model, which enables public sector bodies to co-design and co-fund solutions to shared service delivery challenges. CC2i has worked with over 100 public sector organisations to date and delivered a range of digital solutions, not only in ASC but across public sector's wider remit.
