SummaryThere has been an upsurge in use of technology solutions across the NPA, solutions that have been attempting to reduce effects of COVID-19. These include attempting to reduce demand for other services, protection of vulnerable people (apps for wellbeing), using technology for test/trace of cases and technology to enable social distancing. In TechSolns we will report on usage (what exists) and its effectiveness across the NPA; sharing good practice. TechSolns will gather information, make recommendations and assess how e-health/technology solutions have been put in place during lockdown; also how they have been brought to population groups who need it/may not know how to use it. Technology best practice will be studied,; technology innovation with low threshold which could be (or has been) fast tracked for future waves/pandemics. This will help form coherent responses to COVID-19, ensure NPA is prepared and provide lessons for the next NPA programme.
