The government has committed over £3m in funding for four new projects developing digital technology intended to improve adult social care services. The projects aim to help people receiving social care be more independent and prevent avoidable hospital admissions. The project awards include £300,000 for an electronic records system to improve medication management, £1.2m to embed assistive technology in people’s homes to ease independent living, over £1m to trial sensors for monitoring people’s daily habits and £380,000 for a digital falls prevention programme for older people who receive care at home.
