What we do

Technology Enabled Care is defined as “where outcomes for individuals in home or community settings are improved through the application of technology as an integral part of quality, cost effective care and support”.

Launched in late 2014, the TEC Programme is a Scotland-wide programme overseen by the Scottish Government,  designed to significantly increase citizen choice and control in health, well-being and care services.

The Programme was set up to respond to the need for service transformation in the context of rising demand for health and social care. By providing central funding to a dedicated programme, the aim is to drive deployment at a local level alongside national infrastructure and support work, and to place Scotland at the forefront of innovative approaches to technology enabled care.

Our vision is that Scotland is an international leader in TEC, supporting more people to live longer, healthier lives at home or in community settings.
