Nearly 65,000 people aged 60+ in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland had a hip fracture in 2015. Connected Healthcare technology such as telecare and telehealth has a key role to play in helping to reduce the number of falls experienced, and minimising their consequences.
Falls are the largest cause of emergency hospital admissions for older people, and significantly impact on long-term outcomes, such as moving into residential or nursing care homes.
Technology can help to keep people safe and independent. As well as helping to manage the risk of falls, it can also alert about events such as fires or floods, aid communication and deliver greater privacy or dignity, and can enable people to have more control over the way they live their lives. With public sector funding under increasing pressure, it is more important than ever that we realise the potential of enabling technologies to make a significant and positive difference to the lives of people at risk of falling, and help our health, housing and social care systems to support their needs effectively.
