“There are some great tech solutions out there that could be quite transformative for people’s lives if there was a more co-ordinated approach to spreading good practice.” Peter Bloomfield, Future Care Capital

Technology is transforming the home care sector and Future Care Capital is hosting an event aimed at showcasing some of the best practice in the field.

The Social Care Technology and Transformation online event will take place on Tuesday February 23 at 4pm and will be followed by a Q&A session.

Peter Bloomfield, Head of Policy & Research at Future Care Capital (FCC), will be presenting the results of the FCC Home Care Technology Landscape review.

He said: “We’re very excited to be able to highlight the truly innovative work that is going on in this field. 

“There are some great tech solutions out there that could be quite transformative for people’s lives if there was a more co-ordinated approach to spreading good practice.”

Among the expert speakers at the webinar will be serial entrepreneur Philip Munday who teamed up with two doctors to launch the clinical messaging system Pando. 

Their aim was to provide a better communication system for medical and nursing staff, many of whom are still grappling with out of date technology from 20 or 30 years ago.

Another presenter is Sam Hussain, founder of Log my Care which enables care services to go digital and reduce paperwork for busy staff. 

Also Nick Weston of Kemuri will talk about latest developments in Software as a Service (SaaS) for the NHS and social care.

The webinar will cover areas including:

  • What is the “tech stack” for home care?
  • Which technologies are deployed for different functions?
  • The main functions technologies are being developed for in home care
  • What is a technology ecosystem and how can care tech benefit from a coordinated effort to develop one?
  • What opportunities are there for developers and innovators in the sector?

Exploring the technology being developed for home care provision is currently a key area of work for Future Care Capital. 

The webinar provides an opportunity to learn from tech start-ups developing solutions for independent living and improved care at home.
