The use of technology in care services

As we use more technology in care services, it’s vital that people’s information is kept secure, and that the systems used are reliable. This seminar will highlight key messages from the national research programme that is looking at how care services are using technology, what the risks are, and how services can best be supported to maintain security and good information governance as they use more technology in the future.
