“Working with you all for the past few months has been an absolute pleasure, and I think is a great example of true collaboration, you have brought the skills, experience, dedication and enthusiasm to enable us to deliver a really powerful tool and set of case studies we could never have delivered alone.” Helen Arthur, Harnessing Technology Lead for the New Care Models Programme
To support the development of learning assets from the new care models and STP programmes, NHS England commissioned SCW to curate a series of case studies which harnessed their work in this area. The case studies were needed to provide a resource library which could offer both quality assurance and be widely shared throughout the NHS.
We adopted a unique model of telephone based interviews, a storytelling approach and subject matter expert oversight to deliver a suite of high-quality case studies to demonstrate Vanguard achievements in the use of digital technology. All work was delivered in close collaboration with NHS England’s Vanguard team.
An evaluation report was produced at the end of the commission that documented our methodology and approach. Key findings and snapshots from the case studies were all highlighted against the seven themes of the technology support offer.
