CGI and Delta Wellbeing partner to improve health and social care in West Wales through digital transformation
CGI, the global IT and business consulting services firm, has been selected by Llesiant Delta Wellbeing, as its long-term strategic partner with the award of a five-year contract to improve health and social care outcomes in West Wales. Delta Wellbeing is at the heart of health and care collaboration between local authorities, health boards and community partners and has become a centre of excellence for Technology Enabled Care (TEC).
The initial focus of the partnership will be the digitisation of Delta Wellbeing's telecare services in preparation for the upcoming analogue switch off in 2025. These digital services provide users with 24/7 monitoring via alarms, sensors and wearable devices to remotely monitor health conditions and help people retain and improve independence in the home. With a secure and seamless transition, CGI will help ensure that Delta Wellbeing and its partners continue to provide a high quality of care and are best placed to capture and utilise the very best that technology can offer those in the community.
Samantha Watkins, Managing Director, Delta Wellbeing said: “Delta Wellbeing’s vision of supporting people to live independently and to enable individuals to help themselves, is at the centre of our partnership with CGI. We share values, ethics and both of our teams are truly committed to supporting better outcomes for our service users who are the people in our communities who need our help most.”
Through co-investment in the development of innovative and cutting-edge digital services, CGI and Delta Wellbeing, in partnership with Hywel Dda University Health Board and Carmarthenshire County Council, are looking to transform how health and care is provided to people through the concept of ‘HomeFirst’ – where individuals receive the care they need as close to home as possible. The improved use of data will empower the workforce, create visibility and transparency, and over time provide a new single view of the patient. This will enable whole system thinking to become a reality - where the whole support team in the NHS and care services, as well as family, will be able to see what is happening at any time.
Donna Kelly, Senior Vice President, South and Midlands for CGI said: “We are delighted that Delta Wellbeing have chosen us to partner with them on this forward-thinking and exciting initiative. We are looking forward to working with their team to support the transition from analogue to digital health and care services in the home, develop new skills and jobs for the region and establish Wales as the national pathfinder in truly integrated health and care at home services.”
As health and care organisations across the UK continue to face challenges, the partnership between CGI and Delta Wellbeing intends to expand its collaboration to include a whole system approach to the continuum of care.
