Tricuro, a joint-ventured local authority trading company wholly owned by Dorset Council and Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council, is integrating health and social care through technological advances in a bid to improve adult social services across Dorset.
The company, which has a turnover of approximately £40million, employs around 1,500 staff who provides residential and nursing home provision, day services and wider community support services to 40 locations across Dorset. The company’s services support not just older people but also younger adults with physical and/or learning disabilities, people with dementia, people with mental health needs and people with challenging behaviours.
Tricuro continuously invests in technology and trials innovative ways using income from private trading. It uses digital care planning and cloud-based analytics that enhances its ability to provide evidence of the quality of care delivered while improving efficiency and productivity. Its introduction of virtual reality into dementia service has been recognised at the Smart Cities UK awards in London in January 2019.
The company aims to use additional technology that will focus on harnessing data-driven insight for improved quality assurance and person-centred outcomes. This will help the company accelerate its operational oversight, automate reporting processes and empower its teams to deliver outstanding care and support that improve lives and builds independence.
