In the rapidly evolving landscape of social and healthcare, personalised, efficient, and seamless care delivery is paramount. Enter Lifebook, a revolutionary solution developed by Sitekit that is transforming how information about an individual's social and healthcare needs is collected, shared, and utilised. Built on Microsoft Azure and the robust Microsoft Power Platform, Lifebook offers a comprehensive, person-centred approach that ensures no detail about an individual's care is overlooked.

What is Lifebook?

Lifebook is an innovative tool designed to facilitate the collection and sharing of rich, detailed information about an individual's social and healthcare needs. Leveraging the power of Microsoft Platforms, Lifebook ensures that crucial information is always accessible and actionable by healthcare and social care professionals. This accessibility is especially vital during hospital admissions and discharges, where timely and accurate information can significantly impact patient outcomes.

How Lifebook Works

At the core of Lifebook's functionality is the ability for individuals to consent to share their information with any health or care professional who needs to know and take action. This feature is particularly beneficial in the context of hospital admissions and discharges, where the smooth transition of care is critical. For elderly patients, in particular, Lifebook ensures that all relevant information is readily available, including information recorded by formal and informal carers, reducing the risk of errors and improving the quality of care.
