Tech / Future of care

State of tech in care 2021: have your say

We're on a mission to change the way we age, forever. But, we can't make changes without first understanding the things that matter most to you.


We’re looking for home care agencies to help us shape the future of care, and to kick us off we’d love to know your thoughts about technology solutions.

Don’t worry; you don’t have to lie on a couch and tell us all your problems. You can just click here to take a super-quick survey.

To show our appreciation to the people who take the time to fill out our survey, we're giving everyone the chance to win a £100 Amazon voucher at the end, too.
What do you say?  Take the survey.



Why are we doing this?


At the moment, we're best known for the fantastic home care software we provide, and it's true. But we're actually a whole lot more. We believe in building a better system for care at home, and that starts from the inside, with you, our home care agencies. So, we want to hear your opinions and suggestions.


2020 was a challenging year for everyone, and we’re doing everything we can to make sure that 2021 is better - even if we’ll be facing many of the same challenges. 


We’ve watched our partners adapt to the crisis, with more than 50% telling us they use mobile software to help them deliver care and a massive 93% are using a dedicated rostering system to help them with shifts and pay. Our partners told us that using technology allowed them to work remotely, and despite the challenges, still managed to save 10 hours a week that they’d usually spend on paperwork.

We want to help everyone realise these benefits. We believe that the future home care agency will be tech-enabled, outcomes-focused, and lead local authorities to make decisions. But, to help us to have these conversations and elevate the profile of tech-enabled models of care, we need your help.

This survey is just one of several initiatives we’re taking to help shape the future of care. We’ll be publishing the findings of the study in a detailed report, later this year. We aim to elevate the benefits of technology and highlight new ways of working, so we can change the industry for the better.
