An organisation aimed at promoting the use of digital technologies within the social care sector is celebrating its 50th member.
The Care Software Providers' Association (CASPA) is an independent association that has been established by founding members that represent the interests of social care software providers.
Founded in March 2019, the main objectives for CASPA include the acceleration of the sector's digital transformation and ensuring the industry's legislation and regulations are in line with the move towards the wide use of digital systems.
CASPA is an independent, not for profit, member-driven association and is currently led by a volunteer group of three founding board members, each of whom manages a well-established care software company.
Members’ views are presented when making representations to government and other agencies with the organisation.
"It's important that we promote better integration between the health and care sector."
The appointment of its newest member comes after the announcement of Taffy Gatawa joining its Board of Directors.
Chief information and compliance officer at everyLIFE Technologies, expands the Board to six directors.
“I think it's great that CASPA is giving a collective voice to software providers in the social care space,” Taffy said.
"CASPA represents a centralised, positive community of members who are passionate about improving the industry we work in and I'm very excited to be onboard, and I look forward to being able to make a difference in optimising the benefits of digital."
