We are delighted that the City of Wolverhampton Council has chosen Pi to deliver integrated data and analytics to support the implementation of their health and social care integration programme.
The programme kick off meeting took place on Monday 11th April, and it was great to see so many Wolverhampton team members from such a wide range of disciplines in attendance; from consultants in public health to commissioners, IT leads, IG leads, plus their dedicated project manager.
“This is a huge step forward in making integration across health and social care a reality across Wolverhampton”, said Linda Sanders, Strategic Director.
“The end result is always about building better outcomes for the people who use our services. I’m delighted to be taking this first step forward and look forward to working in partnership with Pi to achieve great things for Wolverhampton.”
Wolverhampton and Pi are working together to agree a definitive list of programme deliverables, but the group is keen to focus on several key priorities, including:
- How people flow through the system
- Frailty issues
- Mortality – place of death, activity prior to death, etc.
- Tracking current effectiveness of reablement services
- Care homes activity – cost of packages versus client contributions
The next stage will be to set up a regular schedule of programme team meetings alongside Jas Kaur, Wolverhampton’s Implementation lead.
So far, the Wolverhampton team has been incredibly proactive and collaborative as we get ready to implement our solution, and are keen to engage with us every step of the way to get the ball rolling.
All in all, it’s been a fantastic overall team effort to date; more information to follow shortly, but for now Pi is very excited about working with the Wolverhampton team on this very important phase, helping them achieve a successful outcome.
