The Care Software Providers Association (CASPA) has announced the appointment of Taffy Gatawa to its Board of Directors.
Taffy, chief information and compliance officer at everyLIFE Technologies, expands the Board to six directors and brings her expertise in data protection, information governance and security within the social care and software sector.
“I think it’s great that CASPA is giving a collective voice to software providers in the social care space,” Taffy said.
“It’s important that we promote better integration between the health and care sector. The advances in digital technology provides a real opportunity to drive this forward.
“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 on board and I look forward to being able to make a difference in optimising the benefits of digital.”
A former registered nurse, with experience of working in both mental health and general medicine in the NHS and the private sector, Taffy has gone on to establish her expertise in the area of data protection and compliance, becoming a Certified Information Privacy Professional, a European recognised qualification held by experts in Data Protection and GDPR.
In her current role at eveyLIFE, Taffy advises the Board on compliance and regulatory matters for a number of healthcare software products. She joins CASPA to manage GDPR compliance and data privacy matters and oversee how the association interacts with the wider sector. Taffy will also represent the views and concerns of the wider members over these matters.
CASPA was launched in March to represent the views and interests of social care software providers, whilst promoting advances in the flow of digital information across social care to allow more openness and transparency.
Founded by Person Centred Software, everyLIFE Technologies and Nourish Care, the Association is independent and not-for-profit.
