The 2019 LGC Awards shortlist has been announced and Hertfordshire County Council with ADASS (East) have been shortlisted within the Driving Efficiency through Technology category for the implementation of their Provider Assessment & Market Management Solution (PAMMS) developed in partnership with H.A.S. Technology.
Their entry highlighted the unique collaboration between the 11 Councils that make up ADASS East. Working with H.A.S. Technology they achieved their aim to ‘do once not 11 times’ increasing efficiency, reducing duplication and automating processes. Using PAMMS has delivered over £1M savings in year one and added value whilst delivering 10% improvement in care quality. PAMMS has revolutionised the way Provider assessment data is collected / shared, improving Councils’ ability to commission relevant services and identify Providers at risk of failure.
The shortlisted organisations will now complete presentations and interviews to a specific judging panel made up of senior and influential figures within local government.
The winners of the LGC Awards will then be announced at a prestigious ceremony on 13 March 2019 at Grosvenor House, London which will be attended by more than 1,100 people from local government and its partner organisations.
Mark Thomas, Director of Innovation said: “We are delighted that Hertfordshire County Council with ADASS (East) have been shortlisted for the Driving Efficiency through Technology category at the LGC Awards. It is a very challenging time for the care market and this is fantastic recognition of what technology can do, not only to improve efficiency but also to increase quality and stability.”
PAMMS brings together market intelligence and market shaping tools and services to support social care commissioners, care providers and the people who use social care. The solution is proven to increase care quality and service sustainability in an increasingly fragile market. PAMMS supports both the ADASS East assessment methodology or bespoke to suit local quality assurance arrangements and is being adopted by a number of Councils in England. H.A.S. Technology are keen to work with Authorities that are seeking to be innovation pioneers in Scotland and Wales to develop the functionality in line with the relevant regulatory frameworks.
