AS part of Essex County Council’s commitment to improve social care in Essex, the local authority has awarded the tender to deliver its new case management system to Corelogic.
The social care case management system will replace 20 systems with one single system. This will provide a more joined up service for the customer and free up social workers so they have more time to work with residents.
The new system, which will be rolled out to adult social workers in early 2015 and children’s social workers in 2016, will provide the county’s 2,500 social workers with a modern and easy-to-use recording framework. The system will also deliver more than £5m worth of savings for ECC over the next four years by allowing the Council to improve its processes and dispense with the existing fragmented technology systems that are currently used in supporting the provision of social care for Essex residents.
Essex County Councillor Anne Brown, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, said: “To have a single social care case management system is a great triumph for the authority and will allow us to improve the service offer to our most vulnerable residents. The system paves the way for better integration of health and social care and lays the foundation for supporting implementation of the Care Act.”
Kevin Moorhouse, Executive Director of Corelogic, said: “We are proud to be equipping social care workers with the very best software tools available to help Essex ensure that people in need receive the very best care and support.”
