NECS shortlisted for two Leading Healthcare Awards

We are pleased to announce that NECS has been shortlisted for two Leading Healthcare Awards.

The Leading Healthcare Awards are purely digital, and the shortlisted entries and winners will be promoted live at a digital awards evening on 6th March on the Leading Healthcare website, Linkedin, Instagram and Twitter.

NECS has been shortlisted as a finalist in the following categories:

Improving Outcomes
NECS has been shortlisted for Capacity Tracker:  Built in partnership with NHS England North, local authorities and care homes, the web-based Capacity Tracker instantly connects users with care homes across England that have vacancies. This has been shown to help optimise patient flow, reduce avoidable delayed transfers of care and therefore length of stay in inpatient settings.


Case Study of the Year
NECS has been shortlisted for the Value Based Commissioning Checker: The Value Based Commissioning programme identified the opportunity to reduce clinical risk for patients through implementing a region-wide approach to managing procedures of limited clinical value. Since August 2017, the web-based system VBC Checker has assisted in a reduction of 15,000 procedures, saving £24m across the Cumbria and North East health economy.

 

Good luck to our teams!
