20 September Technology Day
On Thursday 20th September we had an excellent day hosted by Person Centred Software focussing on the use of digital technology in care. The day took us through a packed agenda around the adoption of technology, jargon busting, using technology and data to transform outcomes, system demonstrations and a debate on how technology will transform care in the future. The slides for the various sessions are below and in addition, we picked up in the session on issues associated with GDPR and Information Governance – so just a reminder of the resources available on those subjects which can be found here. There should also be a write up of the day in the November Care Home Professional.
The agenda covered (click on the links for the day's resources):
What are the tools to help you implement technology ideas? ; Helping you get through the jargon ; The benefits of technology and data in social care ; Obstacles – is it important to measure your care? And how do you measure it? ; Nutrition and Exercise proven to reduce ageing ; as well as debating what the future of technology might look like in 5 or 20 years’ time ;
“At Person Centred Software we are delighted to be continuing with our support of the NCF Rising Stars. This important programme is developing managers of the future where technology will be key to supporting the delivery of outstanding care.” said Jonathan Papworth, Co-Founder and Director.
Celebrate CARE! - Person Centred Software will also be continuing to promote the #GladtoCare Competition at the conference. In partnership with its Charity of the Year 2018, The Care Workers Charity, they are offering carers the chance to win a fabulous holiday with Haven. To enter the competition simply request a tote bag here, take a photo of yourself with the bag in a care interaction, post to social media saying why you're glad to care. Visit their stand to find out more about their Mobile Care Monitoring (MCM), and the competition.
Person Centred Software will also accompany the NCF Rising Stars when they tour the WCS Care Innovation Hub on the second day of the conference. Based at the WCS Care new home, Castle Brook in Kenilworth, a range of tools, systems and approaches have been implemented in an inspiring environment to enhance the dignity, choice and independence of residents, including Person Centred Software’s MCM, electronic care planning and evidence of care system which won ‘High Commendation’ at the Care Home Awards. The solution won Best Equipment, Product or Service Provider using Abbeyfield Beaconsfield, Bradbury House as an example of where the system helped a customer to improve.
