Discussing the future of social care at NCAS 2019
The annual National Children and Adults Social Care Conference (NCASc) is a key event in the calendar. It is an opportunity for OLM to meet like-minded colleagues in the run-up to Christmas to discuss the key social care issues of the day. Set in the picturesque backdrop that is Bournemouth, this year’s conference has been well attended despite the upcoming election.
Forget Brexit, what about the real challenge, Social Care?
As we walk gleefully along the road to Christmas, there is one more hurdle that we need to vault before we get to see jolly old St. Nick. It feels as though whoever wins the upcoming election, the British public will have some movement towards certainty on the matter of Brexit. It has been the country's main focus for far too long:
- Conservatives – A Brexit that could be from medium to hard by end of 2020
- Labour – A slower path through to certainty but following negotiation and then a referendum we would get certainty
- Liberal Democrats – Brexit cancelled straight away

Delayed Transfers of Care - where are we now?
Much like the fabled, Green Paper for Social Care, Delayed Transfers of Care seem to have been forgotten about. Only to be heard of in passing and used alongside much bigger stories but what should we take from this? Should we assume now that the problems have subsided and are under control? Should we take this as the delays have reduced and no longer cost the NHS nearly a billion a year? Or do we take it that other concerns have overshadowed those associated with Delayed Transfers of Care?
Will NHSx make a difference?
Sounding like an extra from the next Terminator film, the new NHS Unit (NHSx) has been tasked with, ‘Driving forward the digital transformation of health and social care’. A noble cause and one that we applaud. Fax machines belong in a museum and not within the confines of a modern healthcare organisation, especially one that deals with an average of a million patients every 36 hours.

ECLIPSE User Community Day
Built alongside practitioners is what we tell prospective customers and it is true. As an organisation, we are beholden to no shareholders and free to design software and services that work alongside the user. We created our ECLIPSE Software and Services Platform to make a difference and designed it with end-users.
How do you design the perfect case recording solution?
There will be many schools of thought on this as to what information needs to be included and what needs to be excluded. What we believe is that as many pieces of the jigsaw as possible are required to create the best possible case record. By including as much information as you can, you will ensure that the individual in front of you receives the best care available.
Birmingham Children’s Trust has launched with ECLIPSE from OLM
Birmingham City Council is the largest local authority in Europe. They represent the largest number of constituents as a single authority, at more than one million. With so many depending on them for such a wide range of services, they knew that they needed to look to technology in order to create efficiencies. This is where they found ECLIPSE and a means in which to effectively change their working practices.
