Welsh Local Authorities and NHS Wales organisations are working in partnership towards an electronic solution – the Welsh Community Care Information System (WCCIS) – which will enable safe sharing of information and help to deliver improved care and support for people across Wales.

 

The WCCIS will be available to a range of services, including:

 

  • Community nursing
  • Health visiting
  • Mental health
  • Learning disabilities
  • Substance misuse
  • Complex care
  • Social care therapies
  • Therapies

 

The functionality of the WCCIS was developed and agreed by health and social care practitioners and managers. A high degree of the functionality (70%) is common across the service areas. The higher level functionality includes:

 

  • Referrals
  • Assessments
  • Care planning
  • Case and contact management
  • Alerts and notifications
  • Diaries/scheduling
  • Finance
  • Documentation/forms
  • Access to functionality on mobile devices
  • User authentication
  • Access control
  • Reporting
  • Integration to other (specific) national systems (WCCG, WCP, EMPI, Blue Badges, Home Care Scheduler)
