The true value of TECS lies ultimately in its ability to connect people. Although our healthcare systems might be different in each of our markets, service users’ needs to live life to the full in a place of their choice is universal. And we are proud to be able to support our customers on a global scale with the positive impact of the transition to advanced levels of telecare. Not only in avoiding costs but also in providing better support for users and carers to live safely and independently for longer.
Proactive and personalised telecare has already been proven to help older people stay independent at home for longer – supporting them to feel safer and more self-sufficient, delaying a move to a care home and helping local authorities free up millions in social care funding.
This recent article in the Journal of Healthcare Informatics Research, which is based on independent research, now shows how advanced use of telecare takes the pressure off emergency care services by reducing ambulance mobilisations by 33.3%, despite the increasing age profile of the telecare service users.
