Working in Tandem: Transforming health and social care

26th July 2016, 9:30 to 14:00 at The Derby Suite, The Midland Hotel, Peter Street, Manchester, M60 2DS

The challenge: working together to transform the management of our health and wellbeing.

The Government’s Five Year Forward View sets out a new vision of care for all of us. It requires care givers to act proactively – identifying people at risk, educating and encouraging self-care and targeting early intervention. It demands that services are shaped around the needs of the individual, not the institution. Above all, it requires all parts of the care community to work together. Underpinning it all is the need for information sharing.

Graphnet’s CareCentric shared record system is widely used across the UK to integrate health and social care services. Join us at a FREE event that will showcase how shared care records are being used in Manchester, Cheshire, London and Hampshire to support service transformation and new models of care.

The event is aimed at both health and social care professionals and will provide real-life case studies. It will demonstrate how systems from every health and social care supplier can be linked to support revised models of care across entire care communities. It will also provide a great networking opportunity for organisations across the region to brainstorm ideas and strategies.
