ALISS has been developing a platform to make information about local sources of support more accessible, in order to help people in Scotland make informed choices about and manage their health and wellbeing within their own communities.  At its heart is a piece of technology called the ‘ALISS Engine’ which holds an index of pointers towards resources. This can be contributed to and consumed by all sorts of organisations, groups, and individuals. With the substantial prevalence of long-term health and well-being conditions amongst Scotland’s population, there is a very large scope for this information. 

This review focussed on technology related issues including how to make this open source system robust and capable of scaling easily and well, and which software development related processes and tools are most suitable for taking it forward.

The resulting report established a clear strategy which integrated technological development with stakeholder engagement to ensure a viable plan

ALISS: System Review is a Contract Research project funded by ALISS/ Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland. Carried out in collaboration with and others. For further information please refer to http://www.aliss.org/.
