Key messages from the event are reported, and include: the need to establish a national and local vision; use technology to solve a specific problem; the need to test and co-produce technological and digital solutions with people who use services and carers; the need to develop knowledge and skills in the social care sector; the importance of digital inclusion; the role of technology in data-sharing and decision-making. The report includes summaries of presentations from Jon Rouse, Keith Spink, Baroness Martha Lane-Fox, Jim Thomas, Madeline Starr and Charlotte Black. The roundtable has also used to help inform the thinking of the National Information Board.
