West Wiltshire SBRI
Working with SBRI
As winners of the 2017 SBRI Healthcare competition for "Self Care" we introduced our Social Prescribing software into West Wiltshire, showing how Social Prescribing can be enhanced using smart technology, helping the NHS support patients and ease pressure on GPs in primary care.
Building a new service in Wiltshire
We worked closely with the GPs and with the public health team at Wiltshire Council to list courses, groups and activities from a range of community providers. A smart interface was developed for the general public, and a GP referral process was designed to make their lives easier.
Getting to know the data
Even though the interface was made to look really simple there was much to do to process the data behind the scenes. The complex modelling which goes into the ROVA design future proofs all further development, allowing a range of additional functionality on the same platform whenever it is needed.
The Kings Fund 2017
We were invited to present this project at the International Digital Congress in Health and Social Care, show-casing the potential for Social Prescribing sofware in emerging health models. Through SBRI we were able to make real impact for West Wiltshire, helping real patients in the region.
