Mental health care technology & transformation

28th June 2021 about a 2 minute read

Future Care Capital is exploring the technology being developed which will transform mental health care.

In the UK there is a rapidly developing mental health technology sector, with a range of different applications and technology types.  At times it is difficult to determine which technologies are generic well-being applications and which are health and care specific.  Marketplaces such as the NHS app store have made technology more accessible than ever.

Following COVID-19, a major co-ordination of mental health care and support will be needed, for patients and practitioners.

In early July 2021, we are publishing The Mental Health Tech Landscape Review, the second installment in a series of technology reviews.  This vital research will clearly define the different types of technology enabling mental health care provision, map the sector’s developers and technology providers, and explore the associated functional applications.

Our Mental Health Care: Tech and Transformation webinar will cover the key findings of this research, showcase some of the innovative technologies being developed, and provide an opportunity to learn from a range of tech providers developing solutions for improved mental health care and outcomes.

What will you discover at the webinar?

At the Mental Health Care: Tech and Transformation webinar we will present the findings from our latest research report The Mental Health Tech Landscape Review, and our panel of leading experts will discuss the technology being developed within the sector and the report’s recommendations.

The panel will also discuss a range of broader technology issues including:

  • What is the tech stack for mental health care?
  • Which technologies are being deployed for different functions?
  • How do applications differ for specific groups, for example workforce vs population; younger people vs older; BAME; LGBTQ+?
  • How do the solutions provided relate to the recovery from COVID-19? Crucially, are there enough options for the scale of the problem?
  • What opportunities are there for developers and innovators in the sector?
  • An introduction to the leaders who are accelerating improvements in this area
