Cwm Taf Morgannwg Regional WCCIS

What is WCCIS

The WCCIS Solution (CareDirector) is a national IT programme enabling the safe sharing of information between community health and social care to deliver improved services and support for people in Wales.

A single integrated health and social care record system will help social services (adults & children) and a range of community health services (including mental health, therapies and community nursing) to ensure that care and support for individuals, families and communities are more effectively planned, co-ordinated and delivered. It will support information sharing requirements, case management and workflow for Health and Social Care organisations across Wales. It will show where a patient is within their treatment journey and alert health professionals to key data, which will support the delivery of effective treatment. CareDirector will interface with a range of other appropriate systems across local authorities and NHS organisations. The WCCIS solution at the current time is CareDirector (16/06/2022).
