KD 4006 Online deployment of the Quickheart Resource Allocation System

1. To note the previous agreement to deploy the Quickheart Resource Allocation System for use as a self-assessment tool, in order to provide a transparent and up-front personal budget allocation to those assessed as eligible to receive funding from Adult Social Care.
2. To note Enfield Council is the only Local Authority offering this full end to end solution, enabling those people wishing to self-fund their own care to fully self-serve and enter the social care market without needing to utilise other Council services.
3. To note the online deployment of the Quickheart product will also contribute to the Council meeting its duties under the Care Act (2014), in terms of providing targeted and personalised information on indicative costs for care and support and how and where this can be accessed locally.
4. To endorse the full online roll out of the updated Quickheart integrated pathway, from self-assessment through to provision of an up-front indicative budget allocation and access to a linked social care marketplace, in accordance with channel shift activities to promote self-assessment and self-serve options across the Council.
