A Bespoke ICP Solution - Principles A bespoke ICP web app solution using simple, modern technology Host it in the cloud (securely, using the internet) – accessible online Promote a design principle of generic care plan functionality – create multiple templates in the future (beyond care of the elderly) Provide for patient access – allow them to log on and view their care plan and see the next planned actions / updates on previous ones Build phase 1 functionality foundations then enhance to provide more advanced functionality on top Design an architecture that is agnostic in terms of other systems used by the various care professionals Keep a design principle of all data about the patient available to be accessed by all with a legitimate relationship in respect of the care of the patient.
Next Steps & Actions Agreement from ICP Steering that this is preferred way forward Business case development and approval to spend Commissioning someone to develop this via TPA to fast track procurement Agreement on pilot and timeframes to pilot (not long I think) Agreement on process Agreement on post project evaluation criteria to measure success and further roll out Project plan
