Digital Telecare for Scottish Local Government is hosting two sessions at this year’s Digital Health and Care Event which for the first time is taking place virtually!

Digital health and care solutions have had a year of rapid scale up and development. Taking time to reflect and learn about how digital solutions in Scotland and internationally have grown and been adopted is the focus of this year’s DigiFest.

2020 has been a challenging year for everyone and for staff working to innovate and deliver person-centered services. Digital tools, services and approaches have had a higher profile than ever before and are recognised as making a key contribution to delivering health and care services going forward. DigiFest2020 explores the latest developments, issues and achievements for all those working to deliver digitally enabled health, housing and social care services.

For the first time, this event will be delivered as a free, virtual programme, taking place from 1-11 December 2020 on the virtual platform Hopin. 

Digital Telecare for Scottish Local Government will be hosting the following two sessions:

  • Digital Telecare Implementation – 4 December, 3-4pm;

This session will provide an update from early digital telecare adopters on their deployment with citizens.

  • Digital Telecare Playbook – 11 December, 3-4pm;

This session will explore the background to the Digital Telecare Playbook resource, the huge success and support that it has provided Health and Social Care Partnerships across Scotland, The brand new Stakeholder Engagement Pathway and also the next development steps for the resource.
