Tunstall Healthcare will be showcasing its unique Connected Healthcare ecosystem and demonstrating its brand new digital solutions on Stand 3 at this year’s International Technology Enabled Care Conference.

Tunstall’s Connected Healthcare ecosystem uses digital technologies to enable new models of care which are more integrated, efficient and preventative. Visitors to the stand can find out more about how our latest solutions can help to manage demand and improve outcomes by enabling people with long term needs to live more independently and with an improved quality of life.

The Smart Hub is Tunstall’s first IP home unit, opening a new world of possibilities for the provision of care in the home. Using cellular technology and working on the 2/3G mobile network with a roaming SIM, the Smart Hub doesn’t require a landline, removing limitations on location. The Smart Hub is the first home unit designed to operate within the Connected Healthcare eco system, which includes our unique Device Management Platform (DMP). Using IP connectivity provides real time data, making it possible to use the DMP to deliver a range of new services, and software updates, diagnostics and configuration of units can take place over the air.

Also part of our Connected Healthcare ecosystem is the latest generation of PNC, which features a range of new functionality and modules. Designed to smooth the transition to the digital future, PNC8.1 enables centres to provide a more efficient, better quality service to the people they support with an end-to-end IP system. For the first time, the PNC suite of software is now available on premise or as a hosted service, dramatically reducing the need for onsite infrastructure and IT support, and offering a range of robust, flexible business continuity options. This new option means customers will always be operating on the latest version of software, with access to 24 hour support included in the monthly licence fee.

These advanced solutions are supported by a team of experienced specialists, dedicated to helping providers to transform services by working with them to develop strategies and approaches to coordinate care delivery and increase quality and efficiency.

Delegates can find out more about how Connected Healthcare is helping to improve outcomes across the UK in several speaker sessions:

David McKinney, Managing Director Tunstall (UK and Ireland), said: “Tunstall has been pioneering the use of technology to help older and vulnerable people live safely and independently for 60 years, but digital solutions represent a step change in the possibilities for providing health and care in the community. Our latest portfolio of products and services is our most groundbreaking yet, and we’re excited to have this opportunity to get feedback from our customers on the ways their services could benefit from them.”
