‘Logging On’: The Care England 2018 Conference Looks at Technology in Care

The Care England 2018 conference & exhibition, ‘Logging On’, which takes place at Church House, Westminster, on Wednesday, 14 November, will focus on the application of today’s technology and its potential to further enhance the quality of care.

The day’s programme will include presentations from expert speakers, including Care England members, who will share details of the benefits that the intelligent use of software has brought both to their residents and their operating efficiency.

Work smarter, not harder

Professor Martin Green OBE, Chief Executive of Care England says:

“The challenge for care providers today is how to work smarter and still deliver the best possible outcomes for those that they support. Most care workers at all levels and of all ages will now have a smartphone, PC or tablet, so it’s no longer just the younger generation who are comfortable using today’s technology. Providers can now harness this familiarity with IT to more easily introduce streamlined admin systems which will  reduce the burdens on staff and provide an audit trail in case of problems. However, that’s only half the story as modern software can also deliver the market intelligence and actionable data that lead to better, faster decision making for the benefit of providers and service users alike”.

All care providers, not just Care England members, are encouraged to attend this event which also features an exhibition and seminars from leading sector product and service suppliers. Delegate places can be booked online and early bird discounts are available until 31 August.

Notes to editors:

  1. Care England is the largest representative body for independent providers of adult social care
  2. Care England works to ensure that care services are commissioned fairly, efficiently and on a properly funded basis, to meet the true costs of providing quality care.  A Care England survey in July 2017 noted that 45% of providers are projecting to take on less Local Authority placements over the next 3 years due to low rates being paid by councils
