Call For Papers

We’re looking for examples of best practice in technology enabled care (TEC) to showcase at TSA’s annual conference. Over 850 delegates from the health, social care and housing sectors will be attending so this is a great platform to raise awareness of your work.

Are you able to present to a conference audience for 15 minutes about a recent project and talk about results from an analysis or evaluation? If so you may be interested in submitting a proposal for the 2019 International Technology Enabled Care Conference.

TSA`s annual conference takes place on the 15th & 16th October at the ICC, Birmingham. The theme this year is ‘Citizen Powered Communities’.

Submission Instructions:

Please submit a short summary (up to 500 words) of your project. You can also attach a pdf of an evaluation, but a summary must be included.

Product/service presentations from manufacturers and suppliers are also acceptable as long as they include an evaluation.

Following the conference, a selected number of submissions may be selected to be written up as a case study and featured on the TSA website.

 

The themes for which we are accepting submissions are:

  1. Citizen Powered Proactive services
    Practical examples of how NHS, social care and housing organisations are redesigning and commissioning care and support services to be more person-centred and outcomes focused. Offering better support for carers and families and to position the right care at the right time for more cost-effective delivery of social care and health services. Can you also demonstrate how you are empowering your workforce to deliver your ambitions.
  2. Citizen Powered Technological enablement
    Can you demonstrate how your, person-centred and outcomes focused, digital solution is leading the way and emerging as a digital exemplar, maybe through the use of technology and/or data as a key enabler to support increased independence and future-proof services.
  3. Citizen Powered Markets
    Can you demonstrate how rapidly developing digital technologies can be made available more widely to help a greater number of people to manage their health & wellbeing, offering reassurances to users and reducing the pressures on the NHS, housing and social care.
