The techUK podcast: Innovation in place-based care

Listen to the latest episode in the techUK podcast series


In this episode we explore the concept of ‘place’ in care, the principles behind it, the impact of COVID-19 on care delivery, prospects for innovation following the introduction of Integrated Care Systems, examples of industry best practice, and where listeners can go to learn more about ‘place’ and innovation in care.

We were joined by Helena Zaum (Social Care Lead at Microsoft and Chair of techUK’s Social Care Working Group), Scott Cain (Associate at the Connected Places Catapult) and Hannah Groombridge (Healthcare Engagement Manager at Person Centred Software).

This discussion forms part of techUK’s Digital Place Week 2022 activity and also features on our recently-launched Social Care Innovation Hub.
