The (TEC) programme, working in partnership with Local Government Digital Office, Digital Health & Care Institute and other stakeholders, have been working with Young Scot since 2020.
The purpose of this exciting work included creating a Panel of young people who were tasked with looking at the strategic development of digital technology in health and care.
This panel has worked with TEC team to begin to shape ideas, solutions, and recommendations for improving digital health and care in Scotland, building upon the work of Young Scot’s Technology Enabled Care report, launched in 2018.
This innovative approach has involved a mutual shared learning and experience for all involved. The young people are working with experts from across the health and care sector to look at how digital technology can be used to address health and wellbeing issues for all those living in Scotland and influence changes to the ways in which services are delivered.
In December 2020, the output of this work was published as the report #TECScotland: health and care in a digital future.
Also in December 2020, at DigiFest event Young Scot and the TEC Panel participated in the virtual event and described their experience.
