We are delighted to announce that Newport County Council has gone live with The WCCIS. This is the eleventh local authority that has gone live since the launch of The WCCIS in 2015.
The Welsh Community Care Information System (WCCIS) gives community nurses, mental health teams, social workers and therapists the digital tools they need to work better together, whilst providing the highest possible levels of care. The WCCIS will provide integrated health and social care for the whole of Wales. It is being delivered by CareWorks through our CareDirector solution and is already live in:
- Anglesey County Council
- Blaenau Gwent County Council
- Bridgend County Borough Council
- Ceredigion County Council
- Gwynedd County Council
- Merthyr Tydfil County Council
- Powys County Council
- Powys Teaching Health Board
- Torfaen County Council
- Vale of Glamorgan County Council
It allows access to relevant information on the care provided to a range of health and social care professionals, to show where a patient is with their treatment.
When fully implemented across Wales, WCCIS will help break down barriers caused by different organisations using different IT systems, by securely storing important information covering a range of activities such as community nursing, health and social care visits, mental health, learning disabilities, substance misuse, complex care needs and social care therapy.
