In early 2015, SCIE arranged a series of roundtable discussions exploring how to improve care and support at a time of growing demand, demographic change and financial constraint. This is the report of the social care and technology discussion. It looks at the potential for technology to improve things for people who use services, for carers, providers and commissioners. Technology can support individuals to make the right choices for the care that they have. It can help professionals to see that people are accessing the right care and those professionals can have quicker access to records and histories. The presentations explore the role of technology in service personalisation and co-production; in promoting innovation and digital and social inclusion; and in enabling integration and supporting decision-making.
