Capita aims to transform Adult Social Services with ChooseCare launch

Capita logoCapita is hoping to transform the way that adult social care services are provisioned - and in time some healthcare services – with the launch of its ChooseCare platform this summer. ChooseCare is a business unit in its own right at Capita, nestled amongst other digital health services in the Local Government, Health and Property division. The team has worked agilely to co-develop the ChooseCare platform over the last year with Capita’s flagship local authority partner Barnet Council.

The platform combines Amazon-like functionality for the procurement of Health & Care services with PayPal-like functionality that enables ‘consumers’ and their families to buy the services they need using Direct Payment funding from their local authority, or, in due course, with Personal Health Budgets or self-funding. ChooseCare is now being piloted by two different local authorities and Capita is in advanced discussions with a number of others with a view to full market availability in 2017.
