PIONEERING TECHNOLOGY TRANSFERS CARE HOME RECORDS TO HOSPITAL
Person Centred Software is working on a demonstrator project with Sutton Council as part of the South West London Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) to digitise the transfer of documentation between care homes and the hospital. This will improve the integration of information and communication during resident transfers between care homes and hospitals, a significant step forward for the sector. Especially as the Government’s Green Paper for Social Care, exploring social and healthcare integration, continues to be delayed.
In February 2019, Belmont Care Home in Sutton, part of Caring Homes Group, successfully sent a resident’s hospital admission information digitally to St Helier Hospital in Carshalton.
