The problems for social care are well known:

  • Increasing demand for social care assessments and services due to demographic change and the Care Act
  • Council budgets reducing by 15 – 30% over the next 3 years
  • Current processes which are inefficient, rely heavily on expensive professional input and are hampered by legacy technology

Most Directors of Adult Social Services now accept that the only way to square the circle is to involve service users, carers and local communities more in their own care & support and prevention.


Uptake of digital technology is rapidly growing - even amongst older and poorer citizens. For example, from 2012 to 2013 the proportion of people aged 65 – 74 using a tablet increased from 5 to 17% and continues to climb as prices fall. Apps like Skype are proving effective in reducing the scourge of feeling socially isolated amongst older people. 


Many small entrepreneurs are seeing opportunities for apps to help address the social care timebomb. Established companies in the social care informatics sector also have innovative solutions. Both DASS's and Directors of Public Health have a core interest in promoting adoption. They are in a position to drive take-up by:

- directly funding innovative approaches that will reduce demand on council resources
- promoting them to clients, carers and local communities e.g. to drive behaviour changes for longer healthy & independent living.

 

What apps are we showcasing?

"Client & carer apps" included in this event fall broadly into two types:

a) Council-managed self-service applications, e.g. citizen portals to existing case management systems, e-marketplaces, online information & advice / triage, self assessment of needs & finance.

b) Consumer apps, e.g. for:

  • sharing tasks between informal carers
  • promoting community sharing for people with care needs
  • telecare
  • special user interfaces for the elderly to easily Skype, email, etc
  • management of care finances
  • monitoring wellbeing.

Both types of "apps" might be combined with a consumer-oriented personal service of some kind.

Excluded: apps designed to diagnose or monitor specific health conditions or any apps that could be designated medical devices.

 

The showcase event will:

  • Showcase up to 24 of the best apps for use by people needing care & support & carers
  • Enable local authority commissioners to find apps to promote in their localities
  • Generate informal networks & partnerships between social entrepreneurs, app developers, public sector budget-holders, care providers, user organisations and advocates
  • Inspire cross-fertilisation of ideas across the sector
  • Encourage the best ideas / products through audience feedback on the day and prior selection of presenters

 

Audience / participants:

  • ASC Assistant Directors and Heads of Service responsible for transformation / business change / prevention / carers / community engagement / informatics
  • Public Health Directors and managers
  • Local authority partners in NHS, voluntary sector and care providers
  • Developers of apps and associated services
  • Representatives of service users and carers
  • Elected councillors
