Following the success of the first ADASS Care Apps Showcase and conference in October 2015, a new programme combining an online showcase, an event and a year round programme of online activities has been launched as a partnership between ADASS and Boilerhouse Events.
Rapidly increasing demand and severely reduced budgets are presenting huge challenges to providers, funders and users of social and personal care.
Digital technologies, including ‘apps’, offer genuine prospects of more for less, including better, less costly management of long-term conditions and the opportunity for more people to stay independent for longer.
Meanwhile apps for professionals are already enabling more flexible, efficient and safe working practices.
Our programme includes:
App developers will be invited to upload details of their app(s) to the care apps platform on PSD eXchange. These will be free-to-view on the platform regardless of whether submitted or selected for the ADASS Care Apps Conference on 7 March 2017.
Apps uploaded to PSD eXchange can also be considered for coverage in PublicServiceDigital and can be entered for our PSD Care Apps Awards.
Social Care Professionals & Health Colleagues
This programme is being developed to ensure that professionals involved in adult social care can keep up to date with developments in the app world and from time to time make their own contribution to the conversation.
