Awards shortlist marks proud TEC milestone
Community Integrated Care was proud to be shortlisted as a finalist at this year’s International Technology Enabled Care (ITEC) Awards in Birmingham on Monday 27th March, celebrating organisations at the forefront of innovation, integration and improvement using Technology Enabled Care.
Having embarked on an ambitious journey to explore how we can use technology to improve the lives of the people we support and our colleagues, we were delighted to see our Technology Enabled Care (TEC) project shortlisted as a finalist for the Workforce Development in TEC accolade, marking an important milestone for our charity and the team behind TEC.
Hosted by the TSA (TEC Services Association), UK industry and advisory body for technology enabled care, the ITEC Awards recognise excellence in this growing part of the social care sector.
The nomination highlights the incredible work undertaken by our teams to build and launch a new, innovative model for an On Call out of hours service and the successful pilot of this service with our teams in Scotland, to provide our Service Leaders with an improved work-life balance.
Joanna Scammell, Managing Director of Technology Enabled Care, said: “We are delighted to have our work recognised by these prestigious awards and I’m incredibly proud of everything we’ve achieved so far. Launching the pilot for On Call in Scotland was a pivotal moment and has been an overwhelming success. Working together with our Scotland colleagues, we have learnt a lot and are able to offer a centralised out of hours service safely.”
She continued, “We will soon be expanding, with some teams in the North East set to begin working with this model in April, with roll out to the rest of the organisation shortly after. We’re excited to be a part of transforming this incredible sector by embracing the new possibilities that Technology Enabled Care provides. It’s just the beginning of an exciting future ahead for our TEC services and I hope this will be the first of many awards to come for this ground-breaking work.”
