Alocura works with clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), commissioning support units (CSUs) local authorities and provider organisations to help deliver personalised health and care services effectively and efficiently.
We are specialists in innovative solutions that support the implementation of Integrated Personal Commissioning (IPC) and personal budgets in health and social care.
Using our in-depth knowledge of the sector and our vast experience and expertise in procurement and supply-chain and demand management we help create the right conditions to deliver personal budgets at scale, pace and cost.
There are just over 28,000 people in England with a personal health budget. The government target is to increase this to between 50,000 and 100,000 by 2020/21 with the ambition that half a million people could be benefiting from a personal health budget in the future.
This is highly ambitious and presents a significant challenge for CCGs against a landscape of budget pressures and reductions in NHS resources.
In social care, while many more people have a personal budget – approximately 650,000 – a large proportion of these budgets are still managed by local authorities and much more needs to be done to deliver the required savings and ensure choice and control and quality outcomes for people.
Our focus is on two main areas:
- Enabling eligible individuals to access personal budgets or personal health budgets by ensuring the right processes, conditions and culture is in place by; providing personalised care and support planning; brokerage of services; budget management services and coordination of care and;
- Developing and managing a sustainable, effective and integrated health and care market which demonstrates both choice and efficiency.
Our robust approach to measuring the impact and delivering and evidencing cashable and non-cashable savings underpins everything we do.
