We’re delighted to announce that NECS has been shortlisted as a finalist for a HSJ Value Award 2019 for our work with NHS England on Capacity Tracker.
Capacity Tracker has been shortlisted in the Technology Initiative of the Year category.
The web-based Capacity Tracker – built in partnership with NHS England North, Local Authority representatives and care home providers – enables care homes to share their available capacity in real time and allows users to search for care home availability across England. The system helps the user identify suitable care homes helping the individual to make the right choice for them and ensuring that they don’t stay in hospital any longer than is necessary.
The team will now attend an interview in London in April where the winner will be decided. The awards dinner will take place in Manchester on 23rd May.
Good luck to the team!
