Engaging Communities Staffordshire
As a prelim to the switch to Local Healthwatch in April 2013, Staffordshire have set up an innovative approach to community and patient engagement around Health and Social Care provision.
The organisation, called Engaging Communities Staffordshire, is an independent company supported by local partners including the County Council. It provides engagement services to these partner organisations and by combining engagement results and information provides a greater knowledge base for all involved.
The Symfonix platform has been chosen and the initial development work carried out to enable the sharing of data across partners along with the additional capacity to identify useful commentary published on digital media.
This is a very exciting project for Symfonix to be involved in and we will write a full project case study as the work develops over the coming months.
