Social Intervention Radar: Our Partnership with Hull City Council

We’re pleased to announce that Hull City Council has been successful in receiving a grant of £65,000 from NHS Digital to work with Upstream Health and implement their Intelligent Interventions solution to provide a Social Care Radar. This is part of NHS Digital’s broader programme to help improve the sharing of data between health and social care teams.

The partnership with Hull City Council is part of the local authority’s goal to work and innovate with local companies.

Our Social Intervention Radar is the first of its kind and aims to improve the sharing of data from social and healthcare teams, reducing demand on services such as GPs, District Nursing, A&E, Social Care and Out of Hours.

The pilot program, which will be rolled out across Hull, boasts a customisable live intervention list, as well as a map of the city. Users with permissions - such as healthcare and social care professionals - will be able to view the patients that are being actively managed within their organisation.

Meanwhile, whenever patient data is changed or updated, an alert will be triggered automatically by the system.

Some examples include a change of address, if a safeguarding issue is flagged, or if there has been a repeat social care visit.

These changes in circumstance will automatically prompt a response or care plan from the appropriate organisation.
