Digital Telecare

Digital Telecare has been exploring the scope of benefits of switching the current telecare provision across Scotland from an analogue based system via traditional telephony connections to a digital service.


The Digital Office for Scottish Local Government has been leading this work with the Scottish Government's Technology Enabled Care (TEC) Programme and in collaboration with COSLA, Improvement Service and SCTT since it commenced in April 2017.


On 31st of October, Digital Telecare for Scottish Local Government launched its brand new Digital Telecare Playbook. This Playbook has been designed to group documentation along pathways or user groups. Pathways provide stepping stones for the most common business areas such as management, technical; user pages group the most common documentation specific to a particular user group.
