The Catalonian Government is working in partnership with Tunstall Televida, to deliver a unique teleassistance model which includes telecare monitoring and response, coordinated social care, public health and preventative services.

Visitors to the Tunstall stand will have the opportunity to receive a copy of the recently launched ADASS Carers Guide to Technology, a toolkit designed to raise awareness and promote good practice. As well as giving case study examples, the report also covers top five things advisers and commissioners need to challenge when looking at technology enabled care to help support carers.

Delegates can also find out more about the ADASS Better Care Technology evidence pack, which is available following a survey of members last year to establish a national picture of telecare service delivery. The evidence pack can be found at adass.org.uk, and contains service success stories, best practice examples and powerful people stories.

techUK’s new White Paper on Personal Digital Care will also be available, which aims to raise awareness of the value that can be achieved by using technologyto empower and enable patients, carers and families to take greater control of their health and care. The paper also outlines the NHS and Local Authorities can overcome barriers to adoption and provides ‘real world’ examples of leading practice that demonstrate the benefits already being delivered in England.
