Evolving Role of Digital Technologies in Care Arrangements


Evolving Role of Digital Technologies in Care Arrangements

14 Oct 2021
Technology & People

Adult social care faces several ongoing changes from chronic workforce shortages, high staff turnover rates, and unsustainable financial offer to secure its long-term viability. Alongside these systemic challenges, the country faces changes to its infrastructure such as the digital switchover replacing analogue telephone services with digital. Such a shift requires a new approach beyond widely prescribed telecare services to support care experienced people with innovative, digital technology-enabled care services.

This session presents findings from recent research funded by United Kingdom Research and Innovation and the European Commission to explore the current and future possibilities and challenges for digital technology in care arrangements in the UK and globally. It will consider the role of these technologies to support older people in receipt of social care services and their carers with implications for the adult care sector in the UK.
