Integrated health and social care
Many factors are combining which mean the NHS and Local Government are struggling to deliver both health and social care services based on traditional models: the ageing population, increasing public expectations of service quality and responsiveness as well as the continuing pressure on the public purse. The challenge is to develop new delivery models to ensure that we have a sustainable service to support all citizens at vulnerable periods in their lives.
The Sopra Steria vision for the future of health and care services is to support the development of a sustainable, integrated delivery model that prevents ill health and manages demand.
At Sopra Steria we are working to provide digital solutions to achieve this vision through innovative new ways of working that:
- Integrate the health care sector to provide a single view of the citizen
- Embrace new technologies to support new solutions and to empower citizens
- Encourage early interventions to reduce health issues for the individual
