Tunstall shares good practice at Housing LIN Extra Care Annual Conference

Tunstall launches new industry resource and highlights the role of Connected Care and Connected Health in improving outcomes

Posted: 3/10/2016 4:19:37 PM

Tunstall Healthcare is attending the Housing LIN’s fifth annual conference, launching a new best practice guide in conjunction with Housing LIN and supporting two pivotal Knowledge and Innovation Exchange Sessions, as well as contributing to a debate on the future of extra care housing.

Assistant Director of Health and Housing Partnerships at One Housing Neil Tryner will reveal how including telecare in new, integrated models of care delivery has helped to reduce delayed discharges, delivering huge improvements in the journey to independence for many people, as well as achieving cashable financial savings for acute trusts, social care teams and the wider healthcare economy.

Ian Pattinson, Development Project Manager (Co-Design) - Commercial Services from C&C will discuss how organisation-resident partnerships have contributed to creating highly aspirational home design that is adaptable for the future, and how technology, coupled with good design can help to re-vision the perception of age.

Later in the day Simon Arnold, Chief Customer Officer will be contributing to a second panel debate on Delivering the housing and services that older people want, which will see the panelists discussing issues such as innovative housing models, making better use of existing stock, new technology and attracting investment to meet demand.

The conference will also see the launch of Technology Enabled Housing with Care Scenarios, co-produced with the members of the South West Housing LIN Leadership Set. The document sets out a series of scenarios to demonstrate the improved outcomes from incorporating technology into the housing solution for different individual circumstances. 

Kevin Alderson, UK Sales and Marketing Director said

Housing plays a vital role in the healthcare economy, and today’s conference will help us explore the many ways we can work together to address the challenges we face. I look forward to sharing the experience of Tunstall and its customers, as well as learning from the best practice of others. As the possibilities presented by digital technologies expand, we have a great opportunity to collaborate and continue to improve housing options, finding ways to integrate as well as innovate.”
