We know that it can be difficult for care providers 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 working with the Digitising Social Care Programme, led by NHS England, to develop guidance on a range of technologies which care providers might be interested in purchasing for their organisation.

The Digitising Social Care website provides guidance and tools to help you to:

  • Get help to set up and use technology: Digitise your care records, set up secure email, improve your internet connection and use mobile devices
  • Choose and manage suppliers: Understand the IT support you need and how to manage your suppliers and contracts
  • Develop digital skills: Develop your team’s digital skills and find relevant training
  • Find funding for digital projects: Find funding opportunities to help you use new technology and digital ways of working
  • Decide what tech is right for you: Use this tool to get started with digital and find the information and guidance that’s right for you

You can also access the Assured Solutions List for digital care records.
