Getting your organisation digital ready
Digital technology has the power to transform services and provides adult social care with huge opportunity. Technology also offers opportunities to help people maintain independence and improve outcomes using assisted living technology. Access these useful resources to find out how you can be more 'digital ready'.
Benefits of being digital ready:
Technology can give people more control over their health, safety and wellbeing, offer support to be more independent/feel less isolated, connect individuals to services, enhance the care or treatment providers offer, help communication with families, professionals and staff, help staff to prioritise and focus their attention on people who need it most and sharing good practice with peers.
