Can hold information on hierarchy, band, role description, protected characteristics, numbers, costs and areas of work, but all the system needs to know is basic role information. This is entered into the system through uploading a template spreadsheet. Workforce data is used in the repository section and allows you to generate reports based on any of the fields you have chosen to upload. Workforce data is also used in the planning section of the tool to determine how your workforce will need to change as activity changes.
Holding information on how much activity is done by the team, the system uses cost centre as a way of matching workforce to activity. This is used by the repository to allow you to view and report on what teams are producing what activity. Of course the real benefit of this data is in the planning section of the tool, where you can adjust who delivers activity and how much activity is delivered and view the impact on your workforce.
Simply, this is a way of explaining how staff split their time between different activities. Unlike activity and workforce information, Driver information needs discussion with the staff or the making of assumptions in order to complete WRaPT, yet is very powerful when analysed within WRaPT. This data allows the planning tool to calculate how changes in activity affect workforce and vice versa. It also allows you to see the impact of improving the efficiency of your teams.
The Health & Social Care environment is changing:
The North West Health Economy is responding to this challenge by redesigning models of care.The Healthcare Transformation team at Health Education England (North West), is committed to “supporting Health & Social Care economies across the North West to transform, by providing the tools and techniques to collect, analyse and model information on the whole workforce”. Commissioning the development and delivery of WRaPT with the functionality to hold, analyse and model the workforce is a revolutionary response. For the first time a picture of the entire health and social care workforce which will enable future state modelling and workforce planning to support strategic transformation decision planning.
WRaPT has aided many organisations in redesigning their services to meet the changing requirements of Health and Social Care. Read our case studies for an insight into what organisations using WRaPT have been able to achieve.Read Case Studies →
