Strata Health UK Added to NHS England’s Approved Vendors List for Health and Care Centres Able to Support Social Prescribing
(September 2021) The award-winning Strata Health team is pleased to announce that Strata PathWays Social Prescribing software is available to NHS Bodies, Councils and Integrated Care Systems as an NHS approved vendor for innovative digital social prescribing solutions.
What is Social Prescribing?
While different models of social prescribing are being implemented across the United Kingdom social prescribing enables health and social care providers such as General Practitioners nurses, community development workers and other professionals to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services to support their health and well-being.
Social prescribing is a crucial component of the overall NHS strategy, allowing the health and social care system to better utilise community-based resources by empowering patients and providing more appropriate options outside a clinical setting. Ultimately, the more we engage with social prescribing, the better outcomes for people and the less impact there is on scarce health and social care resources.
Why Strata Health?
With Strata PathWay’s matching algorithms and digital platforms, we will help to bridge the gap between health, social care, communities, voluntary sector, housing and others to measure progress and outcomes of those communities most in need.
The approved vendors List from NHS England is a nationally recognised robust quality compliance process which is undertaken to vet the most appropriate digital vendor options for providers, commissioners who wish to implement digital social prescribing solutions in the country.
Aa Strata Health we are passionate about Social Prescribing and working closely with our partners across health, social care, communities and third sector to ensure that we can link services and people, ensuring that everyone has the same opportunities to access health, social and welfare services
