Latest GovTech Catalyst competition launched – Torfaen council
The aim of this competition is to make adult social care provision more effective and efficient.
Alongside the launch of the Government Innovation Strategy, the latest GovTech Catalyst Challenge was also launched by Torfaen County Borough Council. The aim of the competition is to develop data and digital technology to deliver better adult social care.
Adult social care plays a major part in keeping some of us well, independent, living in the community and out of hospital for longer. Demand is increasing however, resources are under pressure and we know that we need to become smarter in targeting support to those that need it most.
The council is particularly interested in proposals for technology that can track data in real-time and join up how they deploy and sensitively prioritise resources to the best effect.
