Early Help Module (EHM) System Software
The Liquidlogic Early Help Module (EHM) is a complete solution designed to act as a general case management tool for children outside of social care. It can operate as a standalone early help system solution but is more commonly used in conjunction with the Liquidlogic Children’s Social Care system with which it shares a database. It is also routinely used by professionals from a range of services both within and outside of local authorities.
Early Help is an essential part of safeguarding children and young people within their families. This was highlighted in the Munro review, which stated that "preventative services do more to reduce abuse and neglect than reactive services".
A common criticism of local authorities from Ofsted is that often, not enough emphasis is placed on proactively working with other agencies, to ensure that a child does not become the subject of more formal social services intervention. The Liquidlogic EHM system supports councils to work with other agencies in a simple, intuitive manner and is usually used by professionals from a range of services
The Liquidlogic EHM provides the following:
- Case Management and record keeping facilities for children and families who do not breach social care thresholds, but require support and attention; including forms, assessments, plans, alerts, and workflow.
- Early Help & eCAF- recording and management of the whole Common Assessment Framework process, including the requisite consent and security.
- Referrals in and out of social care - the ability to electronically escalate and refer cases and data into social care, and similarly to receive electronic referrals and data from social care.
- Team around the Child - the ability to set up the team around the child or family to coordinate all their activities.
