The Department of Health and Social Care has asked for the mandation of the collection that commenced as a voluntary pilot with a limited number of Local Authorities under the Collection of Client-Level Adult Social Care Data Direction 2017 and continued under the Collection of Client-Level Adult Social Care Data (No 2) Direction.
The data to be collected will be processed for the purposes of:
- delivering comprehensive data about adult social care services
- enabling key aspects of adult social care service provision, including integrated health and care pathways, across England to be analysed at a national level.
National analysis will provide aggregate data which may be released as management information to support more timely availability of key metrics.
The data will also enable Local Government and Integrated Care Boards to fulfil their statutory functions, in connection with the provision of health services and of adult social care in England, including:
- Monitoring, at a population level, particular cohorts of service users and designing analytical models which support more effective interventions in health and adult social care.
- Monitoring service and integrated care outcomes across a pathway or care setting involving adult social care.
- Developing, through evaluation of person-level data, more effective prevention strategies and interventions across a pathway or care setting involving adult social care.
- Designing and implementing new payment models across health and adult social care.
- Understanding current and future population needs and resource utilisation for local strategic planning and commissioning purposes including for health, social care and public health needs.
