The joint project with Nottinghamshire County Council, birdie and EMAHSN uses digital tools to help bridge the gap between social home care and primary care to allow frontline care staff to spot early warning signs that a person was becoming unwell.
Although we didn’t win the award, to be shortlisted amongst some of the other incredible projects across the country was a great honour. We are incredibly proud of the work we are doing and the positive impact that it having on people’s lives.
Tracey Jackman, Head of Patient Safety at EMAHSN, worked with Fosse Healthcare to evaluate the project. She said: “We are delighted that this project has been shortlisted for an HSJ Patient Safety Award. The findings of the evaluation, which covered one area of Nottinghamshire, show the work could be scalable to benefit many more people who receive care services in their own homes.”
Our CEO, Volt Sacco, said: “This project demonstrates how collaboration, integration, technology and innovation can make a huge positive impact on people’s lives. Given the financial pressures and the recruitment crisis across the health and social care system, the early detection of deterioration project showcases place-based delivery in action, through multi-disciplinary partnerships across domiciliary care and primary care.”
