As Corporate Partners to the TSA, PA Consulting is uniquely placed to support commissioners of social care and health to maximise the opportunity that care technology is now proven to deliver. PA Consulting is fully certified through TSA’s Quality Standards Framework and have won many industry awards including the 2019 ITEC award for Impact in TEC.
At the 2021 TSA ITEC conference, PA Consulting will be supporting the delivery of the conference by chairing two sessions over the course of the four-day conference. In addition, PA Consulting is a member of the joint TSA/ADASS Commission to explore the role of technology in a reformed social care system. More details about the Commission can be found here.
PA Consulting supports commissioners of social care and health care in two principal ways:
Argenti, our innovative approach to technology-enabled care, gives advanced automated support to those in need 24 hours a day and connects care workers to service users for better, more efficient care. This multi award winning service delivers better outcomes for the services user, for care and health practitioners, as well as realisable financial benefits to commissioners.
PA Consulting has worked with more than 30 commissioners of care and heath, delivering everything from strategic advice to service to service improvement of existing in-house services. Its work includes:
Below are examples of PA Consulting’s experience in both these areas, including latest work with Local Authorities during the COVID-19 outbreak:

Government should invest wisely to harness ‘robot power’
When the COVID-19 tide finally turns, what will it reveal? One feature of the landscape that will be unchanged is the imbalance between the demand for care and a workforce sufficient to satisfy it.
