TEC Stories

A vivid picture of how technology enabled care is transforming people’s lives

 

TSA have been working with ADASS and Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) and have created a powerful collection of ‘TEC Stories’ capturing ten very different, very personal stories, painting a vivid picture of how technology enabled care is transforming people’s lives.

 

The stories are told from the individual’s perspective, using their experiences and their own unique circumstances to communicate what TEC means to them.

 

By giving a voice to people who are already using a wide range of technology, this resource offers political leaders, commissioners and practitioners a case for change. The message from these stories is that technology is just a means to an end. The end, in the words of the Care Act, is promoting the wellbeing of the individual.

 

TEC Stories can be downloaded as a 20 page PDF by clicking the banner below, or the individual case study PDF using the links down the page.

Our call to action to those who read TEC Stories is simple. Whether setting policy, developing commissioning guidance or implementing strategy please think about how personalised care solutions can benefit from embedding innovation and appropriate use of technology.

 

I hope you find the stories interesting. We wanted them they show how life-enabling technology can be when it focuses on the outcomes that matter to people.

 

To discuss the possibilities that technology enabled care can have on the lives of individuals and the cost benefits that can be realised by embedding TEC in to wider care provision please contact the TSA on admin@tsa-voice.org.uk or call 01625 520320
