There has never been a more important time for technology enabled care.

As a sector our rapid COVID-19 response and innovations in service delivery have accelerated not only our learnings but is repositioning TEC as an integral part of the wider health network and an instigator of Change.

This year ITEC conference is transformed, it will be a critical platform for you to speak with new audiences in health, housing and social care.

By utilising our dedicated networking space and time slots, you’ll have the opportunity to get the conversations going around joined-up care, interoperability and digital infrastructure, risk stratification, remote monitoring, technology partnerships, co-design…

We’ll also provide you with the key enablers and tools for your own personal ambitions for business transformation, system change, workforce development, leadership, commissioning, population health management, quality standards and others.

This year’s ITEC is also the showcase for the intense work programme and outputs that TSA has produced with the support of Department of Health and Social Care and NHSX, and our partnership with the Association of Directors of Adult Social Care (ADASS.)

Day One A Proactive and Preventative Future: Empowering Citizens with Technology Enabled Care sees the launch of the seminal Proactive and Preventative Care Model which will map out the foundations and key enablers needed to embed integrated technology and service solutions across the entire health, housing and social care network to improve outcomes for people, plus a TEC Awareness Tool for easier and appropriate commissioning of technology enabled care by practitioners.

The findings of the TSA/ADASS Commission will be launched on Day Two Integrating Technology into a Reformed Adult Social Care System. This Commission is unique. It has brought together for the first time, adult social care commissioners, social care providers, technology providers and other sector experts to find solutions to the barriers to true integration of technology and care, and will be the springboard to true system change.

The afternoon will also see the launch of the TSA Academy which provides training, consultancy and resources for workforce development. The Academy’s objective is to create the right environment for TEC to thrive; to develop skills and build expertise around how technology enabled care can support the delivery of integrated services to enable health and wellbeing and maintain independent living for service users, all under the TSA Quality Standards Framework.

The Future of Housing takes the spotlight on Day Three The Empowerment of Residents and Communities with Flexible Proactive and Preventative Services as we look at how to align the strategy for digital enablement of care with housing policy and the vision for the Home of 2030. How will we deliver digitally capable co-designed home environments that support modern approaches to independent living and reduce crisis? We will explore the recommendations of the SCIE Commission on the role of housing in the future of care and support plus updates from the Technology for Our Ageing Population: TAPPI Inquiry. 

On Day Four we turn our attention to Health. The Personalisation of Health and Care Through Proactive and Preventative Service Delivery we will be looking at the impact on community of proactive and preventative care enabled by technology around personalisation, choice and control. By focusing on a number of exemplars you will gain insight into how we can achieve a more cohesive health delivery through services remote monitoring and virtual wards.
