Posted: 6/27/2017 10:24:27 AM

Tunstall Healthcare will be revealing the future of digital healthcare on Stand F30 at this year’s Health+Care. The event will give Tunstall an opportunity to share with health and social care professionals the ways in which digital technology makes new models of care possible, promoting self-care and 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, Tunstall is helping its customers to realise the potential of technology to:

  • Empower and enable
  • Safeguard and support
  • Increase choice and control
  • Provide preventative care
  • Manage demand
  • Integrate services
  • Transform health and care

Visitors to the stand will be able to view the latest generation of Connected Healthcare solutions and discover how they can not only minimise the consequences of events such as falls and fires in the home, but also create opportunities for early interventions to avoid a crisis, give more control over the home environment and support greater social and digital inclusion. Delegates can also view our new end-to-end remote patient monitoring solution, which integrates into clinical systems and improves information flow between patients and healthcare professionals, creating smarter and more convenient ways of working.

Tunstall will also be hosting three conference sessions offering insight into the benefits of using technology as part of service transformation:

Rising to the challenge: how technology is the key to the future of health and social care

Connected Healthcare: The digital opportunity

This session will reveal the art of the possible for health, housing and social care in terms of digital and cloud-based technology, and how providers can plan for the impact of the digital switchover on service delivery. Delivered by David McKinney, Managing Director UK & Ireland, along with John Melarkey, attendees can learn more about how Connected Healthcare can create a new environment for the delivery of healthcare services. The session takes place at 11.05am on Thursday 29 June in the TSA Summer Forum.

Making the Connected Home a reality for older people

The session takes place at 12.15pm on Thursday 29 June in the Home Care Theatre.

David McKinney, Managing 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, empowers people to self-care 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 and care, supporting the delivery of the NHS Five Year Forward View.”
