How Industry Specific Software Can Benefit IMCA And IMHA Service Providers

Mental health is an important issue that all of us face regardless of who we are and where we come from. Whether a mental health problem affects us directly or indirectly, we can all agree that the mental health industry needs all the resources it can get to be able to help those who need it the most. This is why the IMCA and IMHA were created.

What Is The IMCA?

The IMCA, or Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy, was a key aspect of the Mental Health Capacity Act of 2005 and it provides an advocate for those who “lack the capacity and have no appropriate family or friends to consult, when a decision is being made about:

  • Providing, withdrawing or stopping serious medical treatment.
  • A change in the person’s accommodation where the NHS or local authority are proposing a stay of more than eight weeks in a care home.
  • A hospital stay of more than 28 days.
  • Adult protection proceedings.
  • Care reviews.”

The IMCA is someone who is independent of the patient, who is able to meet with the patient in private and who has the right to access any relevant health, social services and care home records.

What Is The IMHA?

The IMHA, or Independent Mental Health Advocacy, guarantees people “detained under most sections of the Mental Health Act, subject to Guardianship or on a community treatment order (CTO)” a voice. This advocate is someone who is independent of the detainee and of the mental health service and who can ensure the rights of that person are being protected.

While both the IMCA and IMHA are highly valued aspects of the UK mental health system, research shows that less than half of the people who need advocacy services actually obtain it. Additionally, it can be extremely difficult for the IMCA and IMHA advocates to be effective without the proper resources.

What Does Digital Transformation Mean To Your Business/Charity?

For any business or charitable organisation to remain competitive in today’s digital world, they have to integrate into the digital domain and have a full understanding of just what it is and how they can benefit from it. The first step in this process is to understand digital transformation and what it means for your business or charitable organisation.

What Is The Digital Transformation?

The digital transformation is simply “taking your business digital” and although it is really much more than that, this is the simplest way to say it so that people can understand what it means. Digital transformation is the process of making your business more efficient and more effective by taking advantage of new technology. From automating simple, everyday tasks, to using software and machine learning to create new ways of doing things, the digital transformation can be as easy, or as involved, as you would like it to be.

Whether you are trying to build a solid business/customer relationship or nonprofit, donor relationship, the digital transformation can make your job easier and provide a foundation for growth that is more cost effective than any other method used before. This can be accomplished a number of different ways including data storage, the delivery of your services, the management of your business, charitable organisation or specific project and how these can all work together digitally.

How Can Digital Transformation Make A Difference?

While many businesses and charitable organisations are typically independently run by a small group of investors or managers, the need for digital transformation can almost seem unnecessary, if not daunting. No matter the size of your business, digital transformation can make every aspect of it better and that can create sustainable growth without much additional effort. With today’s economy, every business and every nonprofit needs to be focused on getting the most for less and that is what the digital transformation offers them.

Digital transformation can also show mangers where they are improving, where their business or charitable organisation needs help and the areas they should focus on for the best ROI in every situation.

How To Get Started

To take your business or charitable organisation digital, there are some important factors to consider. First, take an audit of how your organisation is operating and look at your current processes. What are the tools you are using now to get the job done and how can you make these tools do more? Are your systems connected or do they seem to work in standalone mode making it more difficult for teams to connect? These are all areas that are important to your business and that can be improved through digital transformation.

Digital Transformation Trends to Expect To Grow in 2019

Digital transformation is an important concept for any business or organisation and as new and innovative trends happen, companies like Blue Door Software will be there to provide the caseworker software these organisations need to stay up to date and to competitive in their industries.

2019 is set to bring some new, and some not so new but growing, trends in digital transformation technology and to keep up with the competition, you should also keep up with the trends.

Here Are The Digital Transformation Trends To Expect In 2019:

Big Data

Big Data is not just the latest buzzword, it is a growing industry that could reach more than £100 billion by the end of 2019. When used in the charitable organisation or healthcare industries, big data provides a wide range of useful tools for client support, reimbursement models and more. For 2019, you can expect Big Data to become even more important as it will enable users to utilise predictive analytics and machine learning to provide better case service.

Internet of Things (IoT)

By 2020, it is estimated that there will be more than 30 billion devices connected to the internet. IoT will provide better security for these devices by offering an ON/Off switch which will connect or disconnect devices to the internet or each other.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are two factors that contribute to the success of Big Data. AI enables us to manage all of that data easier and more efficiently. We can create better case plans, customized services and better, smarter management tools which can make the jobs of caseworkers everywhere much easier.

Operational Efficiency

Operational efficiency is becoming a popular topic among many IT firms as they are looking at ways that the digital transformation can improve operational efficiency and provide seasoned technology for healthcare, social care and charitable organisations throughout the UK and around the world.

Marketing Technology Stacks

Whatever industry you are in, money still has to be made and that is what Marketing Automation and Customer Relationship Management are all about. Paired with client or customer “touch points”, this type of marketing technology stack can provide a platform for sustainable growth and increased profits.

The digital transformation is still in its infancy and, as digital technology advances, so will the software needed to run that technology. Begin incorporating these trends now and get ahead of the competition now and become the leader in your industry for 2019 and beyond.

It can be used for everything from connectivity to automation, or data analytics and it can be used to provide digital assistance for clients saving case workers a lot of time and educational or charitable organisations a lot of money.

Security- with the digital transformation comes new security threats. This means an increase in security measures and new software development methods as well as an IoT security strategy. New security features will include threat detection capabilities embedded into individual platforms and proactive and predictive approaches to security created by artificial intelligence.
