Single View of Citizen / Child

Integrated data driving joined-up service delivery

At a glance

By providing a greater understanding of citizens and helping local authorities to provide support exactly where it is needed, Sentinel’s single view solutions meet a growing need across the public sector for joined-up service delivery and collaborative working.

Sentinel's software forms an integral part of a local authority's policy for safeguarding and supporting children, vulnerable adults and families, with data from multiple agencies merged to establish a holistic view.

Examples include a Single View of Child solution which is tailored specifically for those public sector organisations and multi-agency groups focused on the well-being and safeguarding of children, including adoption and fostering.

Key features and benefits

Tailored, holistic records

A holistic view providing local authorities with a better understanding of the citizens and increasingly diverse communities they serve. Views can be tailored to meet the data requirements of particular teams. 

Greater accuracy

Highest quality, accurate data and full audit history, the Single View presents the most complete and timely information known about a person from across your agencies. Teams spend less time finding out what is already known, and more time dealing with cases.

Improved collaboration

A joined-up approach to service delivery through effective collaboration between internal teams and external partners such as the NHS, housing associations, social care providers and the police.

Chronology of citizen
