ValueCare: Cork/Kerry Pilot Site

 
In Ireland, the ValueCare project focuses on co-designing a digital solution to help older people (≥75) experiencing mild to moderate frailty to live independently in their homes. The technology will foster regular communication between older people in the relevant organisations (primary, secondary and social care) with technology enabled data sharing & common data sets can improve flow and information exchange. Older people will access the VALUECARE integrated care pathway via referral from primary care, the emergency department, the acute medical unit or the public health nurse. The care coordinator will develop the following 4 components; case finding; needs assessment; care planning and care co-ordination.

A Digital NHS? An introduction to the digital agenda and plans for implementation

In recent years, the digital agenda in health care has been the subject of an array of promises and plans, ranging from the Secretary of State’s challenge to the NHS to ‘go paperless’ to the commitment set out in the NHS’s Five Year Forward View to ‘harness the information revolution’. But have expectations been set too high? And is there sufficient clarity about the funding available to achieve this vision?

This report looks at the key commitments made and what we know about progress to date, grouped under three broad themes:

  • interoperable electronic health records
  • patient-focused digital technology
  • secondary use of data, transparency and consent.

It identifies barriers to further progress and opportunities for delivering on the digital agenda.
