Evolution from Telecare to Telehealth
TeleHealth as a service is a cloud based platform connecting key services, residents and families within an independent living ecosystem
TeleCare Alert Monitoring
The control centre tries to speak with their client via a hands-free home hub speaker. The control centre officer determines what action to take – inform family, contact ambulance, dispatch dedicated responder.
More recently, alarms can also trigger automated sensors for events such as epilepsy etc.
Most careline services are largely reactive rather than proactive. They also depend on an analogue telephone network, which is being repurposed prior to a final switch over to digital by 2025.
The TeleCare Services Association calculate that traditional careline services face a bill of £150 million to £300 million if alternatives are not implemented.
TeleHealth as a Service
Is a seamless integration of digital applications, customer resources and care professionals.It reduces the burden upon adult care delivered by Local Government, Housing Associations and third sector.
Our Well-being Being cloud based system is future-proof. It’s already ‘2025 compatible’ now and it works with in-home devices from nearly 200 suppliers. Alongside technology enabled care in the home – mobile services can accompany residents beyond their home. Voice activated devices and interactive video contact help with issues of dexterity and isolation. Unusual activity patterns can automatically set-up a proactive contact. For example night exit, periods of kitchen inactivity and so on.
Thus vulnerable residents can benefit from high standards of care support and continue to live in the home they know and love. Their families can be assured that monitoring and well-being services are available at a fraction of the cost of extensive domiciliary care or residential home. Especially for families that live remotely.
TeleHealth as a Service is for families, residents and care professionals
Monitoring - Response
Proactive & Well-being
Proactive services give families confidence that their parents and relatives have regular contact support, as well as real-time response to emergencies.
Social isolation is often correlated to poorer health and in particular to early onset dementia.
