Digital and Technology-Enabled Care Services- where we are and where next.
About the event
As part of the Centre for Care’s Expert-led Technology and Care sessions, we were delighted to be joined by speakers Richard Parkinson (FarrPoint), who summarised the findings of NHSX-commissioned research on the analogue-to-digital switchover and its implications for the care sector, and Tim Mulrey (Technology-Enabled Care Strategy Board, TSA) who explored the ‘art of the possible’, what technology enabled care services of the future might look like and what this may mean for the care workforce and those who draw on care and support.
The session featured two presentations from Richard, ‘Digital Shift & Impact on Telecare’ and ‘Digital Shift: The wider impact’, and Tim’s presentation, ‘The right care, The right place, The right time’. You can watch the recordings below.
Expert-led Technology and Care sessions
Technology is increasingly relevant to all aspects of the care ecosystem. The Centre for Care team researching Digital Care aims to highlight the relevance of developments in technologies and their evolving use in care for all work across the Centre. We also plan inclusive sessions, codesigned and delivered with partners, involving our entire team and open to relevant stakeholders. Beyond their role in fostering Centre integration, the sessions will also build insight and capacity in the role of technologies. The TSA (Technology-Enabled Care Services Association), whose membership includes technology designers, manufacturers and providers as well as local bodies with statutory care responsibilities, has extensive experience of engaging stakeholders and driving debate in the care sector; this collaboration aims to stimulate new thinking/project development, and make an outward-facing, inclusive contribution producing policy papers and accessible, thought-provoking materials for public and care sector audiences.
