Coalition of Care and Support Providers in Scotland (CCPS) members are offering chances to view digital health and care in action.
As part of this year’s Digital Health and Care Fest, CCPS members have organised a number of site visits for conference attendees and others interested in how they are developing digitally enabled health and care services.
There are a limited number of places available as we want to ensure they are valuable knowledge exchange opportunities and to match with each organisation’s capacity.
The participating organisations are listed below with a summary of what they are showcasing. Please follow the Eventbrite links to register and if you have any questions get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
Addaction works with people affected by drug and alcohol use. In response to a number of significant challenges facing service users, they have created a webchat service. Webchat allows people from across the UK (and sometimes beyond) to have an anonymous conversation about drugs, alcohol, or mental health, with a trained, experienced practitioner. Building on the successes of the first year of delivery, and growing in reach and scope, Addaction is committed to maintaining webchat as a sustainable, vital service.

Leonard Cheshire supports people with disabilities to live as independently as possible. They will be showcasing two areas of work:
· Predictive Health Analytics:a relatively new area, experimenting with unobtrusive monitoring technologies that offer a 24-7 guardianship – the objective is to provide a technology that resides in the background with no obvious need to interact with it.
· Mainstreaming Accessibility: the second strand of work focuses on a blend of new mainstream technological opportunities – Google home and other personal assistants, environmental control, control of everyday products like TV and entertainment systems – along with newer developments in communications technologies.
Fair Deal/Support for Ordinary Living (SOL): delegates will learn first-hand, practical knowledge and understanding of how the Connecting Neighbourhoods model works.
Connecting Neighbourhoods is a collaborative, neighbourhood approach that brings 7 Social Care organisations and Glasgow Health and Social Care Partnership together to develop creative digital technology solutions to providing overnight support for 51 people across the Castlemilk area.
There will be a short presentation on what Connecting Neighbourhoods is and then an opportunity for delegates to visit the homes of people using the technology to hear first-hand of the benefits and challenges that the model has brought to the lives of the people using it and the staff who are offering support.
