NSSC 2017 – Making Mobile Working a Reality

CareWorks are again delighted to be a Main Sponsor for the National Social Services Conference taking place in Llandudno this year.

This year we will be hosting a workshop focusing on making mobile working for health and social care professionals a reality. Our latest app CareDirector Integrate has been built by and for health and social care professionals to allow them to dedicate more time to their clients and deliver better care. The workshop takes place June 28th at 16.15 in the Arcadia Room. We hope you can join us on the day.

A lot has changed since 2016’s conference. We have seen a number of sites ‘go live’ with The WCCIS – The Community Care Information Solution for Wales, including Blaenau Gwent CBC, Powys Teaching Health Board and Powys County Council.

It has certainly been a busy year but we are glad to be returning to the NSSC to catch up with familiar faces and meet some new ones.

If you have any questions about The WCCIS or Care Director Integrate stop by our stand at the conference or you can email [email protected]


We look forward to seeing you in Llandudno

Mobile Working in Health and Social Care

The ability to work out of the office, from mobile devices is becoming a more popular way of working. In 2017, more than half of organisations in the UK are likely to have adopted flexible working policies, and more than 70 percent will have followed suit by 2020, according to a report from the Work Foundation at Lancaster University.

A survey of business across Europe found that flexible working makes employees 39 percent more productive, and 72 percent of them attributed this to key communications technology.

The advancements in mobile working in recent years have allowed businesses and organisations to make many improvements to allow them work better and more efficiently. Now more than ever, the need to communicate and update data in real time has become an essential part the way we work.

Technology has proven its use in many industries. However, Health and Social Care in the UK have been slower in embracing these technological benefits.

The 2020 Framework has stated that; “we need patient records to be mobile, editable and accessible to all those in the care process, including patients themselves and carers. Digital records must support the delivery of care in the community as much as in the hospital – their mobility, extensibility and interoperability is fundamental”.

The NHS willingness to embrace these new ways of working will enable professionals in health and social care to work better and more efficiently. This move, to electronic and paperless working will allow professionals to spend more time with their patients and less time on administration thus paving the way for integrated and interoperable work practices that enable real time access to data and more flexible ways of delivering care.

The CareWorks team understand that there is now more than ever a need for health and social care professionals to be able to work in a mobile environment and have access to real time data whether working in an online or offline mode. Our mobile app CareDirector Integrate, has been developed by and for health and social care professionals as they know what a mobile app needs for professionals to effectively deliver care to make a real difference to people’s lives.  To read more about our mobile solutions click here
