Winners at the Computing Digital Technology Leaders Awards 2020
2020 has provided many challenges to the world. For health and social care organisations it has required a radical re-think in the way in which care is delivered. New models have been created to place those who are vulnerable at the centre.
Technology has been a key component within this radical shift. From offices full of social workers to additional safety procedures for health care workers, and care providers struggling with staff sickness. Technology has increased efficiencies, providing suppliers with a lifeline.
The NHS and Social Care - two sides of the same coin
The NHS and Social Care are two sides of the same coin. We have been saying this since day one.

ADASS Spring Conference – Continuing to support adult social care discourse
The annual ADASS Spring conference is a key event in the calendar. It is a chance for directors of adult social care to get together with suppliers and thought leaders to discuss change. The major change of the day was naturally Covid-19 and how the pandemic has altered the face of the market in 2020. Technology is a key component in the response, and this was acknowledged during the conference. Change is no longer knocking at the door; it is kicking it down at the hinges and we need to acknowledge this.
