Staffordshire, Lincolnshire & Salford choose Open Objects’ EHC platform to transform SEND services

To coincide with the latest release of its EHC Hub, Idox’s Open Objects is pleased to welcome a further three local authorities to the platform, bringing the number of Hub users to ten within its first year of launch.

With more councils looking to digital transformation to improve the way they manage complex EHC processes and engage with families, this latest customer expansion will see the Hub support more than 25,000 EHC plan reviews this year alone.

Staffordshire County Council, Lincolnshire County Council and Salford City Council will rollout the EHC Hub – a secure online platform that provides an intuitive, single point-of-access to share information and collaborate on EHC assessments, plans and reviews.

The latest release of the EHC Hub means that local authorities can now also fully engage families and professionals in the annual Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) review process via the market-leading portal, as well as using it to manage the initial 20-week assessment and planning pathway.

The online annual review pathway offers the same transparent and collaborative experience, whilst driving practice improvement and providing local authorities with much-needed business intelligence on how children and young people are making progress towards their outcomes.

The Hub also provides a unique platform for education settings to manage their EHC Plans and annual reviews. It delivers significant administrative efficiencies and transparency to ensure children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities are offered a consistent approach to support them in reaching their full potential.
