Tunstall’s Connected Healthcare solutions help manage demand by enabling enhanced care at home

Tunstall Healthcare will be exploring the future of digital health at this year’s ADASS Spring Seminar. The event will give Tunstall an opportunity to share with senior social care decision makers the ways in which digital technology makes new models of care possible, transforming service provision to become more home-based, proactive and preventative.

Tunstall’s focus is on developing solutions that enable the delivery of cost-effective and coordinated care in the community. As these solutions become increasingly digital and cloud-based, they are creating a more connected and intelligent world that can:

  • monitor health, safety and wellbeing
  • empower and enable as well as safeguard and support
  • improve quality of life
  • make it easier for formal and informal carers to support independence and provide the right level of care
  • dramatically increase the choices available to enable people to thrive in their own homes as they age
  • enable people to self-help without the need for statutory services

Digital Connected Healthcare will enable all the elements to link together in real time, all the time – service users, the devices that support them, service providers, formal and informal carers, social care, health and housing providers.

As part of Tunstall’s International models of care supported by digital services workshop, Niklas Brissman of Karlskrona Municipality will describe how the transition from analogue to digital telecare technology in Sweden has improved the delivery of social care in the Nordics by enabling services to be more integrated. The workshop is taking place at 2.50pm on Tuesday 9th May.

Further resources are also available to delegates, including:

Going digital – Living Better for Less with Technology-enabled Housing

An ADASS Housing Policy Network website supported by Housing LIN which reveals the importance of digital technology, how it supports policy and commissioning objectives, and its benefits in order to equip directors to make informed and future-proof decisions.

ADASS New models of Care supported by Assistive Technology

An interactive toolkit introduced by Linda Sanders, ADASS Technology Lead, detailing results of research into how assistive technology can support the areas of most concern to directors of adult social services, including detailed practice examples.

Tony Walker, Business to Business Commercial Director at Tunstall commented: “As BT has announced its intention to discontinue analogue telephone line provision by 2025, a more digital future awaits us all. Tunstall’s Connected Healthcare Ecosystem creates a new environment for the delivery of healthcare services which provides stakeholders with vital information and enables family members to support loved ones remotely.

“We are committed to helping our customers to navigate the digital evolution, refining their strategies to make cost effective decisions which maximise the potential of technology to transform the way we deliver health, housing and social care, improving people’s lives.”
