Technology Enabled Care Services (GGI / Tunstall Healthcare)

Summary

The Good Governance Institute (GGI) and Tunstall Healthcare have published a discussion paper entitled “Keeping the NHS Great, Delivering Technology Care Enabled Services”, which looks at the benefits of integrating care services through the use of assistive technology. This document reviews the evidence-base, examines barriers to the deployment of technology enabled care services (TECS) and offers recommendations for policy makers.

Note: This vision of technology enabled care services (TECS) broadly supports NHS England’s “Technology Enabled Care Services (TECS)” programme.

” …there needs to be a system wide transformation and cultural change, aligned incentives, pooled budgets and outcome based commissioning, evidence of best practice and an evidence review and a national awareness and patient empowerment programme with a personal technology Czar”.
