Improving information management, delivering better care – held in Leeds, Bristol and Cambridge on 25th, 27th January and 1st February respectively

Leading electronic document and records management (EDRM) software specialist, TOWER Software is hosting a series of complimentary briefings developed exclusively for local authorities concerned with electronic social care records (ESCR). The events, “Electronic Social Care Records – Improving Information Management, Delivering Better Care” bring together a panel of renowned experts on ESCR to present the background, the policies, issues and solutions. Guest speakers include:

• Philip Jones, Head of Information Resources at Staffordshire County Council
• Richard Blake, Head of the Records Management Advisory Service, The National Archives
• Tony Hendley, MD and Head of Research and Consultancy at Cimtech
• Mark Hewitt, Head of Joint IT Unit, Directorate of Social Care and Health, Staffordshire County Council

The briefings, which will be held in Leeds on 25th January, Bristol on 27th January and Cambridge on 1st February, are aimed at local government staff that are involved in social care, the management of service user records or the information systems required to support ESCR.

Geoff Burnes from BT Syntegra attended a previous TOWER Software ESCR briefing a few months ago, and reported on it as, “Excellent practical experience, well communicated.”

“The media has recently highlighted how the social care system has failed in a number of high profile cases,” explains Tony Sumpster, Managing Director at TOWER Software EMEA. “Social care records have become a hot topic and one of the biggest challenges facing the UK’s health and social services. Forward thinking councils must act quickly to meet the Department of Health’s 2004/2005 strategic goals for the delivery of better care to their local service users through the improved management and sharing of crucial information.”

Delegates may register for the briefings on 0118 977 7510.
