Share Cambridge 2019 takes place today, Thursday 25 April. The event’s key focus is the wellbeing and health of residents and places and, together with our policy partner DELL EMC, we are developing and sharing cutting-edge ideas on how we can all help to build better communities.

Together, we’ll be taking a fresh look at how the determinants of people’s wellbeing can enable housing authorities, leisure providers, environmental management, education, police, public health, care organisations and health providers (he public sector in the widest sense) to refocus its efforts on addressing the often entrenched and endemic problems in our society.

Over the next six months, Socitm will be furthering this important discussion by publishing a series of guides explaining how digital technologies and better use of data can help deliver a health and wellbeing transformation through collaboration with people in their diverse settings.

Committed to conversation and collaboration, we want to hear your views. We’d love your feedback on the topics we plan to cover. Are there other areas you’d like us to address? What are your thoughts on the points outlined below?

1. Introduction – the compelling Case for Change

    • National Backdrop – NHS deficits and cumulative budget reductions in LG, ageing demographics, smart cities, workforce challenges, changes in expectations within society, reduction in service variation, place-based and people-centred priorities, left-shift, wider determinants of wellbeing, innovation initiatives, looking after yourself, focusing finite resources on the most vulnerable including those with long terms conditions.
    • How can local authorities respond?
    • Role of the CIO/CDO, digital leaders and place-based convenors.
    • CIO’s should largely think about how technology/digital can impact prevention in their local populations, then think about how the resulting new services can be enabled and made more efficient by technology
    • Aligning multi-agency priorities, resources, action plans, etc
    • Uplifting skills – building capacity and capability nationally and locally

6. Place-based approach wellbeing – the Scottish experience

      • National context – NHS Scotland – 14 Boards, including NHS National Services Scotland – data collection for performance metrics – volume and diversity of data sets
      • Putting data at the heart of place-based policy, decision-making and practice
      • Opening up data – the emergence and practice of probability matching
      • Federated approach – from data warehouse model to data lake
      • 2014 legislation – beyond health to wellbeing … development of PaaS approach – enabling organisations to develop their own data analytics skills – opening up opportunities to address local problems
      • Two case studies:
        1. Midlothian –impact of educational attainment on healthcare needs
        2. Edinburgh – impact of social isolation on health and wellbeing
      • Future – NHS-Scotland working with SEMIS (Education) – impact of educational attainment levels on life chances
      • Infographic – A framework for outcomes-based harnessing of data
      • Conclusions – sense of purpose – people (awareness, skills …) – processes – data sourcing and management – technologies and tools – investment.
