The North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust has extended its partnership with Strata Health UK, securing a 5-year contract to implement their Transfer of Care Hub and system-wide eReferral platform.
Having been integral to North Cumbria’s healthcare infrastructure for over a decade, Strata Health has successfully adapted numerous changes and mandates in healthcare initiatives. In recent years, amidst organisational restructuring and the division of Cumbria into two separate areas, the need for a digitally supported and mature Transfer of Care (TOC) process became apparent.
Leveraging Strata Health’s specialised expertise in TOC processes, a collaborative project commenced earlier this year. Key project milestones included:
- Developing a Digital TOC electronic single assessment form
- Creating a streamlined end-to-end process
- Enabling seamless care placement
- Integrating with vital systems
- Implementing automated alerts for patients encountering placement delays
- Generating comprehensive data metrics for informed decision-making
- Efficiently managing referrals for care home placements
- Providing real-time updates on bed vacancy status
The innovative solution promises a multitude of benefits, including minimised data entry, improved communication among stakeholders, refined commissioning decision-making, and precise real-time updates on bed availability in care homes.
“We are very proud to renew our partnership with North Cumbria, aligning with their vision to innovative and optimise care transitions, ultimately enhancing patient outcomes and enhancing the overall efficiency of the healthcare system,” stated Clint Schick, Chief Executive at Strata Health UK. “We anticipate many more impactful years of collaboration.”
This extended partnership between North Cumbria ICS and Strata Health UK embodies a shared commitment to leveraging technology and expertise to drive transformative change in healthcare delivery, ensuring a seamless and enhanced patient-centered care experience.
