Tech is the perfect partner, but it will never replace the emotion
‘…people and robots interact socially—the right kind of AI can improve the way humans relate to one another.’
How AI Will Rewire Us, The Atlantic
Since the 1940s humanity has been fixated on the notion that machines will rise up. From Isaac Asimov posting his famous Three Laws of Robotics in the 1940s to the Terminator films. It is an inbuilt fear of what machines could become.
Safeguarding moved behind closed doors
Safeguarding is a global concern.
We are capable as a species of great acts of compassion but also of inaction. For too many years organisations have not been able to see what is happening in their back yard.
Safeguarding breaches have occurred and shared on front pages. Organisations have been lost and others are still rebuilding their reputations, it is a mark of the world we live in. It is something that has increased following on from the outbreak of COVID-19.
Winter is coming
Much like the beloved, Game of Thrones franchise, the season of snow and cold is on its way. The season that brings with it colds and flu is this year bringing a new virus along for the ride. COVID-19 is here, has been classed as a global pandemic and is responsible for not only claiming people before their time but for also fundamentally changing how we live.
ECLIPSE: The perfect software solution for the next decade
We created our ECLIPSE software platform to create lasting change across health and social care. It is an attempt by us to give back to an industry that offers so much every day. It is something that motivates us and keeps us strong.
Software that was suitable ten years ago is not suitable today. Delays cost time and the more time taken through administration results in less time to care. Time is the most essential consideration that we all have, and ECLIPSE creates efficiencies that save time.
Winners at the Computing Digital Technology Leaders Awards 2020
2020 has provided many challenges to the world. For health and social care organisations it has required a radical re-think in the way in which care is delivered. New models have been created to place those who are vulnerable at the centre.
Technology has been a key component within this radical shift. From offices full of social workers to additional safety procedures for health care workers, and care providers struggling with staff sickness. Technology has increased efficiencies, providing suppliers with a lifeline.
The NHS and Social Care - two sides of the same coin
The NHS and Social Care are two sides of the same coin. We have been saying this since day one. Since 1991 and the day that we first opened our doors, the NHS and Social Care have existed as two separate entities. We have never agreed with this stance but by that same token, we do not agree with supposed proposals from the government that the NHS should take control.

It is not enough to provide access to software
Creating software is only one part of the puzzle. Ensuring that customers feel safe using and accessing systems is another key consideration.
Continuing to support our customers
COVID-19 arrived at the start of the year. It changed the way in which we live our lives and by no means is the battle over. We are about to head into the most challenging period of the year, the Winter and our customers need our support.
