The Memo Service for these 15 Social Care clients would cost £4,875 per year. Efficiencies of £20,000 have already been identified with further upside potential. A £4 return for every £1 invested even allowing for the small sample size and possible variation when scaled further looks like a particularly useful investment in supporting better quality care for both clients and Social Care. These results demonstrate both efficient and effective social care.
Further upside efficiencies are anticipated from longer term use:
•The opportunity for Social Care to use the Memo service to gather longitudinal data where we would expect Client Care Plan reviews (ad hoc or at least annually) to benefit from long term trend evidence.
•Preventative activities. It is almost impossible at this stage to quantify any additional benefits to Social or Health Care derived from alerts when activity changes. However, many recognise the benefits of moving to a strengths-based approach with an increased focus on the Circle of Care. We have seen evidence that early identification of small issues can lead to them being resolved prior to a crisis point being reached that would have required additional health or social care resources.
•The significant hidden benefits of a more personalised care plan that better fits client’s needs, that will lead to greater satisfaction with Social Care services and more importantly a better quality of life.
•Efficiencies to Social Care from the wider use of data are, as yet, unknown.
