Think Tank - Care Technology: Managing the shift to digital


In May 2017, TSA organised a Think Tank, ‘Care Technology: Managing the shift to digital’ which enabled us to gather views and intelligence for this White Paper. We are grateful to PA Consulting and the Innovation Agency for supporting this Think Tank and also to all the 50+ attendees and contributors.
