Join the discussion: “Organisational readiness: Technology Enabled Care Services”
An interesting article has been written on LinkedIn about the effects of not considering organisational readiness.
The article, written by CECOPS Chief Executive, Brian Donnelly highlights the impact of this meaning technology isn't meeting the intended purpose or realising the expected benefits.
“On a national or even international scale, the cost of investing in technologies without ever realising their full potential or improving care to patients and users must be colossal. This is a complete waste of public funds.” explores Brian.
In response to this, CECOPS have created the first end-to-end outcome-based International Code of Practice for Planning, Commissioning and Providing Technology Enabled Care Services.
CECOPS CIC is a user-led, independent, not-for-profit certification and standards body, aiming to raise the standard of all assistive technology related services across the UK, and beyond.
