Making it happen: aims and key measures
We would like to ensure that our digital infrastructure is tailor-made. We must review, in detail, our current digital infrastructure. This will help us to suggest improvements/ innovations. It will also allow us to prioritise our resources.
Our people are our core strength; supporting, developing and training our workforce to achieve their full potential enables us to provide quality support to our service users. As the environment in which care and support is provided continues to change, we need to have the agility in our workforce, where skills are transferable, new ways of working are adopted and we embrace and develop core digital skills.
Making Space are aware of the innovations in the industry around Electronic Care Planning. It is our intention to be at the forefront of innovation and whilst we currently operate on paper records; we will implement a system that will allow us to digitalise our care at the point of delivery.
This is represented by our key components of Care & Communication. We want to improve the way we care for people through innovation and improve the way we communicate, using technology to build connections.
Making Space is unique, the people we support are unique and so are our staff teams. Any digital solution therefore must also be unique and whilst we appreciate that the best in class systems may be off the shelf – there has to be an element of flexibility so that they’re tailor-made for us.
Digital transformation epitomises our value of Dreaming Big. Making Space want to put wellbeing at the heart of health and social care and our dream is to give our staff teams the best possible tools to be able to make that happen.
Any transformation requires the courage to undertake it. We have invested in a dedicated team who know our business and its values very well and we empower them to lead us through this exciting culture change.
Implementing a digital transformation project will support our value of Being Ready. An optimal digital infrastructure will support growth, improve the pace of which we can on-board people and services. Ultimately, this will allow us to be more responsive to the needs of our commissioners.
A core component of Project Shine is to improve communication across all stakeholder groups. Improved communication will enable us to embed Making it Real plans across our services.
At the heart of Project Shine is the development of the digital skills of our workforce. Shine is an investment in the upskilling of an already talented and professional care workforce at Making Space.
Embedding electronic care planning through Project Shine will support our ambitions to deliver care designed for the future in all of our services.
