We know that it can be difficult to know which digital tools to buy. There are a lot of social care technology options out there and limited advice on how to choose the right solution for your organisation.

We are developing guidance on what the core requirements are for suppliers of IT equipment and software to social care providers. This is so that you know the right questions to ask when buying digital tools. This work is happening in partnership with NHS Digital. The aim is to develop social care technology standards in collaboration with software suppliers and care providers.

This guidance will include

  • what questions you should be asking when buying IT software or hardware
  • technical standards
  • a list of digital functions which benefit the sector

We are looking for social care providers and Software System Suppliers to be involved with this work. If you would like to know more or you have any questions please contact us!

If you are interested in looking at the range of technology options available to you then these are available on Tech for Care’s website.
