National Clinical Homecare Association (NCHA) members seek to provide patient centered homecare services that are safe, cost effective and ensure seamless integrated patient care. The NCHA and its members along with wider industry stakeholders have been fully engaged in the DH Homecare Strategy Board (Hackett) workstreams and are committed to the practical implementation of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) Professional Standards for Homecare Services.

NCHA was pleased to lead this event held on the 20th July 2015 to bring together a wide range of key stakeholder to understand and break down the barriers preventing the step change in interoperability of homecare systems that all parties desire. This homecare systems workshop builds on the output based specification and technical specification for Homecare systems from the Hackett IT workstream and other elements of the RPS Homecare Handbook.

This is a key next step in the standardization of processes between NHS and the homecare industry that will underpin efficiency and support a robust homecare market which continues to meet the needs of patients and commissioners as we grow homecare services in partnership with the NHS in response to patient demand.
