What are the key features/capabilities of our product?
The application is easy to use helping end-users and social prescribers find relevant and suitable activities to refer to or book direct. We provide the ability to manage social prescribing cases, make referrals, and book local services & activities.
The system provides the ability to view rich data regarding the suitability and accessibility of the sessions to enable the social prescriber to make informed choices that inspire trust in the activity provider.
Along with the referral management information the system provides detailed reports of the following:
Referrals into Physical activity
Types of activity that include physical activity
Record of Attendance
Follow up and feedback of client progress against initial referral
Uptake of Self-care physical activity against the client record where the citizen has used our booking system.
We provide activity providers and back end database to keep their sessions up to date, that can feed into their own website or through a widget
We also integrate with a Volunteer management system enabling the social prescriber to check the availability of the volunteer against the availability of the session.
Clients/Citizens can share their personal account with a social prescriber so that that can book sessions on their behalf during the intervention.
13
What are the barriers to providing a product with social prescribing.
Lack of knowledge of what social prescribing actually entails
Need to understand what the opportunity is regarding the demand of service referrals / social prescribing
Different social prescribers will do things differently across the uk, no common training/system approach to operational delivery
Would like to understand what the actual provision/scale of providers that would like to use our system for social prescribing
Reaching full market a problem, as no obvious framework for social prescribers or activity providers to purchase our system
Can't compete against the big players in the market, even though our product is cheaper and more feature-rich.
Having to rely on sole suppliers of assured community data and physical activity data feeds creates a monopoly and adds risk to our business model
Without wide adoption of data standards in social prescribing it's hard for us to share our service/activity data consumers. Sharing our data helps to promote our business
No standard way to categorise our data. Having a universal taxonomy or a combination of taxonomies could enable our data to be used to establish better suitability
You have to go on an advanced eLearning course to start with adopting/implementing OpenActive opportunity data. Open Referral is easier to understand so will probably just align with that.
Changing our core system to align with an immature social prescribing movement is costly. We'd want to know the potential benefits and be confident of change control within standards body.
14
What KPIs do you provide to users?
We can provide a url for an activity provider to follow to complete an assessment e.g. PAMSor ONS4 for the patient

our product is adding value immediately
Application providers are driven by commercial demand
Social prescribing application provider - We will develop whatever the client needs to carry out social providing. We are already on route to pulling data from OR and would happily consume OA. We are talking about a deal with Imin so we can use the API.
