Technology enabled care

With technology taking an increasing important role within social care, the Care Inspectorate has a vital role supporting improvement in this fast-growing area of practice. We do this by working in partnership with a number of sector-based organisations and form part of the Scottish Government’s technology enabled care (TEC) digital social care programme.  Through publication, projects, networking and engagement, we aim to support the generation of knowledge and shared learning in digital social care.  

Our workplan is aligned to the Scottish Government’s Digital Health and Social Care strategy and forms part of the national delivery plan Care in the Digital Age: 2022 to 2023.   

Our good practice guide: Using technology and digital devices to make a positive impact on health and wellbeing for people experiencing care is now published.
