NHSX launches the adult social care technology innovation and digital skills reviews

In partnership with Ipsos MORI, the Institute of Public Care and Skills for Care, NHSX has published the adult social care technology innovation and digital skills reviews. This important research will help to inform national policy priorities on social care digital transformation over the coming years.

The research shows the potential of digital technologies to help improve social care delivery and uncovers barriers to and enablers of social care digital transformation. The findings and recommendations are relevant to government, local authorities and the NHS, care providers, technology suppliers and social care sector bodies.

The full review report, infographics and case studies can be found on the Ipsos MORI website.

The reviews involved widespread consultation with groups across the social care sector with participation from care providers, people with care and support needs, unpaid carers and the social care workforce, including nurses working in adult social care.

In the New Year, events will be hosted to consider ‘where next’ in response to the review findings. These events will be an open forum for social care and technology partners to discuss the recommendations and help to define priorities and next steps.

Rachel Falconer, Policy Lead on Skills and Evidence at NHSX reflects on the reviews, their key findings and plans to continue the discussion in her blog.
