Implementing the new NICE homecare guidelines
NICE

 

In September 2015, NICE published a new home care guideline. This provides action-oriented recommendations to help providers, practitioners and commissioners ensure older people living in their own homes are receiving the best possible care and support.

 

This session will give delegates a valuable insight into the new guideline, addressing the importance of: putting people who use services in control of their own care; promoting individual wellbeing, independence and choice; safeguarding the most vulnerable; and recognising the vital role played by family, carers and friends. It will focus on the most effective and cost-effective, evidence-based recommendations and how delegates can implement these within their own organisations.

Connecting care to save money, reduce risk and differentiate your service
everyLIFE Technologies

 

The market for homecare is changing.  Why is it happening?  How will my service benefit?  What are the risks of not changing?  Families and procurers of care want better transparency on care provision, they want better care.  Homecare services need to be more efficient to protect their margins and need to reduce operational risk.  Modern mobile care planning, notes and medication can connect the office, to field care supervisors and care workers.  This is currently happening at speed in the UK market.  But the benefits are much greater than this – we can also connect different care stakeholders, from families, to social services, community nurses, GPs and pharmacies.

 

  •        Is the market really transforming?  What are the big drivers and impediments to change?

  •        What are the real benefits of mobile care planning, medication, care notes?

  •        What are the upsides and downsides of real-time delivery of care information to families, CCG, social services?

  •        What are the next stages of cost saving and service improvement in a “connected care world”?

  •        Does the “internet of things” have a practical place in the development of homecare services?

Outcome based commissioning in homecare – why and why not
Atlantic Customer Solutions

 

Many will agree that the current system of commissioning and delivering home care has some serious problems.  We will give participants a sense of the scope and latest developments in the evolution of this emerging technique, one that has the possibility of transforming home care for the better. In our travels we have found that it provides positive benefits to the end customer, care worker, provider organisation and commissioning authority alike.

 

In true workshop style, this will be an interactive session where your thoughts and opinions will form part of the proceedings.
