East Riding of Yorkshire was one of the first areas to adopt the Capacity Tracker

Commissioners in the East Riding of Yorkshire have been using the Capacity Tracker to support
care homes through the Covid-19 pandemic, with numerous benefits identified as well as new ways of working.

How has using the Capacity Tracker supported East Riding of Yorkshire?
The East Riding of Yorkshire was one of the first areas to adopt the Capacity Tracker, they were the first Council to invite NECS to attend their Care Sector Forum to demonstrate the tool as
well as highlight the benefits to the sector. By April 2018, all 142 Care Homes had registered on the Tracker with approximately 75% of these updating regularly.

With the outbreak of Covid-19 and the role of the Capacity Tracker being used as the vehicle for Local Resilience Forums and the government to identify Care Home information on infection levels, workforce status and PPE, increasing the frequency of updating became critical.

To support the care providers on the coal face, a brokerage option was utilised temporarily to support Homes who were struggling to commit to daily updating.
