WHAT IS CONTACT&CONNECT: 90 DAY REPORTING?
Another service provided by Contact&Connect is 90 day reporting, which is a crucial part of the reablement process. This service is designed to help local councils track service users’ progress over 90 days following their return home aftercare. It also aims to ensure they continue receiving the support they need to maintain their independence and quality of life.
The reporting service provides an effective method for councils to monitor individuals’ progress, meet their reporting obligations, and identify any cases with developments or challenges that may arise. It also allows authorities to keep track of important information such as medication changes, health status, and more. By doing so, councils can take appropriate action, address any issues and ensure the best possible care and support is provided.

GATESHEAD COUNCIL CASE STUDY
It falls to all local authorities to successfully complete their 90 day reporting as part of the NHS Digital’s Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework, regarding if a person is still fully established at home or if they have been readmitted at 90 days after their hospital discharge – officially known as the ASCOF 2b measure.
This reporting can be a very time intensive process due to the need to pull together and assess a number of different spreadsheets and/or data streams. Then comes the process of actually calling, and getting through to everyone to confirm whether or not they have been readmitted to hospital. In some cases this can be hundreds of calls every month, taking significant time and resources to complete and then report on.
Contact&Connect: 90-day reporting was co-designed with Gateshead Council to automatically contact all people at 90 days and ask them the key ASCOF 2b question and automate this standard process. Critically if the call is not answered, the system automatically tries again and can also send an SMS to get the required response. In addition, the call collects satisfaction and patient services feedback to help councils improve their wider reablement service.
