Finestra - the innovative portal to empower social care

Finestra’s software solution is a secure, integrated portal that has been designed by Servelec HSC to help you shift communication, engagement and transactions to lower-cost and more effective digital channels.

Today, government policy and public expectation demand a move to a more personalised, digital approach to delivering social care. It is essential to use innovative systems to drive productivity and efficiency. It must also improve service delivery, give more direct access to citizens and carers, and remove wasteful duplication of data entry for professionals and providers.

Finestra is a professional online social care portal that interfaces with Servelec HSC’s Mosaic case management software so that citizens, associated professionals and care providers can manage the effective care of an individual.

Finestra’s core functionality supports three types of users: citizens, professionals and service providers. It cuts costs and speeds up vital processes. It allows efficient multi-agency working and puts your clients in charge of their own decision making.

Modules within Finestra's social care portal

Finestra has six highly effective modules, which can be procured as a whole or in part:

Advice and Guidance

Designed to help anyone looking for information about social care services, this provides digital advice and helps guide citizens to the appropriate care. It allows easy access from a central location without the need to contact a number of different services. Citizens can view their summary care record information, current week care plan, their personal budget allocation and spend, and contribution information. It empowers citizens and cuts the time spent on administration for busy Local Authorities.

The Citizen Portal

A person-centred, self-service system where citizens can plan and action their own support needs through a secure portal platform, he Citizen’s Portal helps people to engage with their services more effectively. They can collaborate directly, receive notifications, supply information and view records online. This gives people complete control of their own information, and helps them make informed choices regarding their own care plan and budget.

Professional Portal

The Professional Portal enables professionals to receive notifications, supply information online and view records holistically. They can contribute to workflow steps simply by adding information to an individual’s case. It allows greater collaboration within a local authority, improved insights and accurate reporting. Workflows are completed more quickly due to the ease with which professionals can engage directly in the workflow.

eMarketplace

eMarketplace gives people choice, whilst reducing the administrative burden of Local Authorities matching suppliers’ availability with citizens’ needs. It gives local authorities total control over their support, lets them post and receive invoices and see which suppliers have availability. This reduces back office processes and gives people direct access to accountable care.

Finestra B2B

The business-to-business portal facilitates a real-time digital link between social care providers and the local authorities who arrange and pay for services. It offers improved management and visibility. Transactions are completed more quickly, and payments and budgeting can be managed more accurately.

Care and Health Interactive Purchasing System (CHIPS)

The Care and Health Interactive Purchasing System (CHIPS) reduces the manual effort required when dealing with and managing service requests. Local Authorities can create and manage contracts in the system, so that they monitor, review and audit progress and increase productivity.
