Putting People First: Commissioning for Connected Care, Homes and Communities

This TSA Whitepaper addresses the key question:

How can the care technology sector support health and social care commissioners to commission technology enabled care services that meet the growing and changing needs of the entire system?

This question is answered in four themes that were discussed by the Think Tank Panel and are explored throughout the paper:

  1. The care technology sector must make clear the case for change;
  2. The care technology sector needs to define what good quality looks like;
  3. The care technology sector needs to define the key enablers of success; and
  4. Commissioners need to ensure the commissioning approach focuses on outcomes and not inputs
