I was asked to write a guest blog for @Communitycare about what I could see as future uses of smartphone apps in social care. Please see the full article here:


We will be examining this as part of the twin events at #Digihealthcon and #Digihealthhack, where we will be hearing from Dr Shaibal Roy of the DH Future Forum about the successor to #MapsandApps, #CareApps.

We are also grateful to also have HANDIhealth apps running a workshop. They are a new social enterprise offering support to people developing apps for health and social care.

After the Conference, themes will be taken forward to develop at the #digihealthhack, so if you have a great idea for an app to be used in social care, why not pitch it to us?

Together, we can!

Hope to see you there!
