Digitally Acting Together – DATA 1


Digitally Acting Together As One (DATA 1) aims to allow the creation of data tools that can improve service delivery across different providers including health, education and social care using linked datasets within the Connected Bradford database.

These tools would empower policymakers, communities, and practitioners to tackle the numerous problems that currently plague our society. Our strategy is to focus on the creation of one tool within a single geographical locality (the District of Bradford) that can clear the queue of children on waiting lists for autism assessment, allow earlier identification of undiagnosed autism, and enable children with autism to receive multi-agency support as soon as their needs are recognised. By focusing on the creation of one tool for autism treatment, the fundamental system architecture and data warehouses are created which can then be applied to the rapid creation of other data tools for a range of childhood vulnerabilities.
