A new tool to help councils use data to plan, manage and deliver social care services is being highlighted in a seminar next month.
The AI-based tool built by data-analytics company NquiringMinds and backed by Innovate UK has been developed in partnership with the Southern Policy Centre.
The tool is called NQMCareAnalytics and is being launched at a seminar on 3 December.
This seminar will also feature speakers from Southampton City Council and Portsmouth City Council.
The event brings together service providers, policy makers and data experts to explore how we can use the wealth of data Councils hold to understand what can be done to help use limited funding in the best way possible.
‘Councils provide a range of care services to thousands of people across their area,’ said NquiringMinds managing director, Nick Allott.
‘The information they hold can help in re-designing services to find new more effective ways of helping those people. We work with many local authorities across the UK to help them understand the people they serve and use data to manage their services better.’
Simon Eden, director of the Southern Policy Centre, added: ‘Social care is under real pressure right now, with growing demand as our older population grows, set against years of financial cuts. This data tool can help find new, creative ways of meeting demand and so relieve some of the pressure on these vital services.’
