BetterCare Account is a digital budget and care account platform.
BetterCare Account is a digital platform for staff to automate the production of an individuals’ personal budget and for citizens to self-serve & track their budget through their care account. This platform has been co-designed by four local authorities (Halton, Kirklees, Lincolnshire and Walsall) with a ‘Gallery’ of subject matter experts from over 50 councils, who have provided their input in the development of the platform.
The platform calculates localised eligible care needs costs for users and allows them to evidence and track their spend, reassess their needs, request adjustment and generate statements. BetterCare Account provides a host of guidance to ensure end users can complete this independently.
This self-service platform alleviates added pressure and ensures that local authorities are able to handle the uptake in people needing to establish their personal budget.
BetterCare Account takes the output of a care and support assessment (CSA), meaning a digital CSA platform such as BetterCare Support would allow the user to have a completely self-serve experience, start to finish.
This platform provides a user-friendly front end to anyone accessing care through their local authority, enabling transparency and the ability to self-serve their needs.
