Social workers need contributions from external professionals in assessments and plans. This can occur throughout many areas including social care work, Early Help, EHCP, MASH, CAF and DoLS.
It can be difficult to persuade external professionals to directly use social care software for these contributions, especially as they would be infrequent users. The overhead associated with providing both an account and training is also a barrier.
These contributions are often gathered verbally and input manually by the social worker, which means that their accuracy is sometimes questioned, or they send in paper forms or use emails which are then attached to the record; both of which are inefficient and affect data integrity for the record.
Social workers can control the delegated questions, with the ability to pull them back or send reminders to external professionals to fill them in.
The Delegation Portal enables multi-agency contributions to be made directly into the Liquidlogic systems in a manageable and secure way.
