We have combined Evergreen Life and PCG’s expertise and industry-leading technology to provide a unique and innovative approach to social prescribing - focusing on self-care and enabling people to ‘help themselves’.

Our partnership with Evergreen Life enables us to offer a transformational solution for next generation social prescribing.

Evergreen Life is an approved provider on NHS Digital’s framework for online Patient-Facing Services across all GP systems of choice - EMIS, SystmOne, Vision and Microtest.

We have combined Evergreen Life and PCG’s expertise and industry-leading technology to provide a unique and innovative approach to social prescribing - focusing on self-care and enabling people to ‘help themselves’.

Bringing together the benefits of patient access to medical records – with the benefits of connecting people to their communities – our solution will improve patient health and wellbeing, patient experience, and reduce demand on primary and secondary care.

When people access Evergreen Life, to book a GP appointment, order a repeat prescription, or view their medical records or test results online, they will be presented with an automated, personalised social prescription using data from their GP records. This data is mapped against a comprehensive community directory to recommend relevant community-based services, groups and activities. The social prescription is then completely customisable by the individual enabling them to produce a tailored prescription that they can save, print or share with others.

Other features of the solution include the ability for people to ‘self-refer’ into a formal social prescribing service; personalised information and advice; targeted health prevention messages; ability to set, record and track wellbeing goals; and to link to online peer-to-peer support groups.

Our solution will enable clinical commissioning groups and local authorities to make the benefits of social prescribing much more widely available.

Within the solution, there is also a range of functionality designed to support organisations delivering commissioned social prescribing contracts to deliver their service more effectively, including:

  • Online referral systems
  • Self-serve wellbeing assessments
  • Real time appointment booking
  • Reporting dashboard
  • Case management system
  • Community directory

 

Key benefits include:

  • Cross-platform solution integrating with all GP Systems of Choice
  • Citizen-driven, promoting self-care and self-efficacy
  • Not reliant on GP referrals
  • Significantly widens the population that can take advantage of social prescribing, including people who would not normally be eligible for formal social prescribing services
  • Provides a more cost effective solution than high cost 1:1 services
  • Brings together rich data and business intelligence from multiple sources to enable reporting on engagement, outcomes, ROI, and market provision to better inform commissioning practice
