I have become aware that in the past few weeks there have been a lot of views of Connected Care Camp posts. I am delighted at the growing and continuing interest in our Care in the Digital Age programme. The Camp was held in December 2013 in collaboration with FutureGov. Prior to the day we invited people to explore the problems and challenges for connected care which had been identified through discussions and the online survey. These included:
Social Isolation and Loneliness
User and patient engagement and the personalisation of services
Information, Advice and Support
Digital Literacy, Inclusion and Technology Barriers
The challenges of Integrated Care
With an increasing focus in both the Care Act and the Better Care Fund on the use of digital technology I thought it would be helpful to provide a round up of the posts, resources and videos shared before, during and after the event.
The Care in the Digital Age programme was developed to encourage Local Authorities, Health and Wellbeing Boards, Clinical Commissioning Groups and the housing sector to explore and excite staff, service users, carers and volunteers about how social technology can support more connected communities. Do get in touch if you would like to collaborate with us on running this programme in your locality.
