Social care is running on empty – but technology can make a difference

PA’s client work for Hampshire County Council is mentioned in an article on the Guardian’s social care network. The article explains that there are a number of challenges facing the social care sector but that technology enabled care can save cash-strapped councils money.

The article talks about the Argenti consortium, a partnership between PA and Hampshire County Council aimed at developing a new approach to technology enabled care. The article goes on to say that the partnership has taken a developmental approach where technology enabled care is embedded as part of the service rather than an afterthought.

The article explains that the PA and Hampshire County Council team recognised that in order to succeed, services needed to be redesigned. They had to be innovative in the way they identified people for the service, and provide credible evidence of the benefits. The team developed a benefits realisation model - an integral part of social workers’ assessment and care planning. Using this approach, an audit of 650 older people who had technology enabled care found its deployment made an average net saving of £840 for the local authority over the course of a year.
