Provider Portal – Go Live and Support

Norfolk County Council is replacing its current social care system CareFirst, with a number of new systems that will change how we interact with you and pay for the services that we commission. The most important of these systems for providers of care and support will be the Council’s new finance system ContrOCC and the Provider Portal. You will have access to the Provider Portal, which will be your window to the information held in ContrOCC, such as details of the services we have commissioned from you for individual service users. You will use the portal to upload details of the services you have delivered, submit invoices and communicate with Care Arranging and Payments teams at Norfolk County Council.

From the end of November we will be processing payments to all providers of care and support through ContrOCC, but we will only be adding providers of home support to the Provider Portal at this time. Providers working in one of the other sectors of the care market will be added to the portal in a phased approach, but have access to all of our online training and support from November to help prepare. If you would like more information introducing you to the changes please visit our website.

Where to Find Out About Our New Social Care System and Provider Portal

We are replacing our CareFirst social care system with Liquidlogic, a market leading system installed in over forty local authorities. The new system is due to go live in November this year for home support providers, followed by the rest of the social care market in 2018.

As we approach go live we are working with providers on the system’s functionality and the training that we will offer to support you making the transition between systems. We are also eager to ensure that you receive regular updates about the system and can find answers to any questions that you have concerning how the new system will affect you and your organisation.

We have created a dedicated area on the Norfolk County Council website for our new social care system: http://www.norfolk.gov.uk/providerportal.
