Recognised for its dedication and passion to bringing greater change to the care sector, last month KareInn was invited to Westminster Abbey to join the 75th anniversary celebrations of the NHS – reflecting on the incredible milestone for the health service.

There are around 1.6 million patient interactions with NHS services every day. There’s no doubt the impact that our National Health Service has had on millions of lives over the last 75 years. Innovation in healthcare during this time has helped the NHS thrive and become the world leading organisation it is today.

As part of the 75th anniversary celebrations, a new publication has been launched called: ‘NHS 75: Celebrating 75 Years of the National Health Service.’ Featuring the first-person accounts of politicians, patients and health professionals, past and present, the book highlights the people and policies that have shaped our much-loved NHS.

The publication, now available as an eBook, features our Co-Founder John Lanyon and the story behind KareInn’s creation. John discusses his personal experience as a full-time carer for his mother, who had early-onset Alzheimer’s, and for his grandmother, who had vascular dementia.

Having spent 15 years volunteering with the Alzheimer’s Society, John realised how difficult it was for research data to be translated into real-world use. So, he set about building a team to achieve these goals. The result was KareInn. Turn to page 256 to find out more.

Speaking after the NHS 75 event, Rachelle Mills, Partnerships and Innovation Director at KareInn said: “We were incredibly honoured to receive an invitation to the NHS 75 celebrations at Westminster and proud to be recognised as a future change maker for the care sector in years to come.

“With so many future opportunities to improve outcomes for residents and their families, we’re excited for the next 75 years as we continue leading the way as a pioneer of digital care planning software.”

According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), the number of people aged 85 years and over is expected to almost double to 3.1 million by 2045. As the aging population continues to rise, prioritising social care will become increasingly more important. Integrating and aligning health and social care will ensure people are given the care and support they deserve.

Kate Colborne-Baber, Managing Director at KareInn, said: “At KareInn, we are putting in the work to align shared care records so that health and social care can truly benefit from real-time record sharing. Sharing care records of the people moving between health and social care settings is vital to delivering high-quality care long term. We are passionate about driving this agenda and ensuring records are as transparent and accessible as possible.”

KareInn was founded because we recognised the huge and positive impact the right technology can make, and we believe the health and social care sectors deserves better.

KareInn Co-Founder, John Lanyon said: “As we mark 75 years of the NHS, and we look back on all it has achieved, we must also continue to move towards utilising data for better care outcomes, and work to become a truly integrated health and social care sector. We have so many opportunities to help shape the next 75 years through the intelligent use of this data.”
