BetterCare Support presentation and demonstration

Our Festival of Health and Social Care 2021 ran on the 1st October, and was a fantastic event with registration and attendance from over 250 people from over 75 local authorities and relevant health, care and technical partners. The day included thought provoking discussions from our councils involved in CC2i’s collaborations over the past 18 months and informative demonstrations and presentations from our technical partners.

We had a section of the morning dedicated to our Adult Social Care Innovation Focus, involving 20-minute slots where technical partners gave an overview of what they had developed and why – they then moved on to lunchtime demonstrations of the platforms.

BetterCare Support is an animation-led platform that guides users through the Care & Support Assessment process, encouraging independence and coaxing best quality responses throughout. In addition to reducing unnecessary travel, backlogs, and processing times by avoiding all but essential home visits, the tool provides a highly personal experience by signposting to local preventative resources enabling users to self-prescribe.

Andrew Jackson, Head of Business Development at Looking Local spent some time talking us through the offering, what it is, where it came from and the benefits it brings. You can watch this presentation here and if you have any issues playing the video below, please click here.
