The London Borough of Bromley Council is preparing for a step change in the way it manages special educational needs (SEND) services, after signing up to the Education, Health and Care (EHC) Hub from Idox’s Open Objects.
The secure, online platform will provide the Council with an intuitive, single point-of-access to track EHC journeys from the outset – from assessment through to the annual review process – improving transparency and promoting collaboration by engaging families, professionals and young people.
Such digital transformation will improve the way assessments, plans and reviews are managed, monitored and shared with everyone involved in the 20-week process, bringing families and young people closer to their case while helping the Council achieve cost and time efficiencies.
Bromley’s Deputy Chief Executive, Ade Adetosoye said: “Bromley is working with Open Objects to ensure a clear and transparent approach to Education, Health and Care (EHC) assessment, planning and reviews. Implementing the EHC Hub will provide a digital solution that will encourage smarter multi-agency working and make it easier for families to be fully involved from the start, helping us to provide positive outcomes more efficiently for our children and young people.”
