Overview: Scotland is undergoing significant public service reform. Three key aspects of this are the greater involvement of citizens in the planning and designing of services, an increasing shift to digital technologies, and the integration of health and social care. Technology-Enabled Care will play an important role in this reform. The Scottish Government, supported by the European Health Telematics Association (EHTEL), has undertaken a Readiness Check of the state-of-play of Technology-Enabled Care at the national level. The work was undertaken in two parts: a survey and a workshop. This report describes the background to the two-part exercise. The survey was based on the Momentum 18 critical success factors. Its objective was to collect data on stakeholders’ perceptions of the current status of the Technology-Enabled Care Programme. The findings of the on-line survey are reported. Following that, a workshop was organised to follow up on the survey findings. The workshop was held on Thursday 16 April 2015. The workshop objective was to create stakeholder awareness and consensus around the results of the on-line survey. The findings of the workshop are reported in terms of moving towards action planning. A preliminary set of workshop conclusions are laid out. As a result of the joint analysis, it is now possible to derive an action plan for scaling-up the use of technology-enabled care in Scotland. A set of proposed next steps in the journey towards an action plan are specified. Lessons learned from the exercise are also listed.
