Member Testimonial

CoolCare joined CASPA the year it was founded and each year, has continued to be impressed by what CASPA achieves.  In a short-time, CASPA has created momentum for the digitalisation of social care at a senior policy level in Government which has led to significant support for the sector.  Via CASPA, CoolCare has felt it has a voice in decisions made about the sector which affect us.   We’ve also been kept up to date on the latest advancements which give us the inside edge on what’s coming up and enables us to influence it.   CASPA has also provided a great networking opportunity for us to get to know others working in the same field and allowing positive collaborations.   For how low the membership fee is annually, the value we get out of membership is amazing.”

Words of support from Digital Care Hub

Digital Care Hub were delighted to work with the Care Software Providers’ Association (CASPA) to secure the extension of access to GP Connect for Registered Managers and Non-Clinical staff.  Doing so has been a monumental step forward in the plans for integration between health and social care, overcoming barriers that have previously been unfathomable.

CASPA is clearly passionate in its mission to enable better interoperability to raise the quality of care and support the social care sector in its digital expansion.  It is refreshing to work with a trade association who is committed to improving the outcomes for the sector it serves, rather than the sole interests of its members.  CASPA brought fresh ideas to the table and was innovative in its approach, enabling constructive solutions to be found and blockers quickly removed.

What CASPA and Digital Care Hub achieved together has proven what is possible for the interaction between the NHS and care providers.  Digital Care Hub strongly encourages anyone who is working in this field to engage with CASPA and seek their expert advice and support.”
