Lecture: Integrated Care Services - Implementing the Vision

 

21/05/2013
7.30pm

Organised by the British Computing Society (South West).
Speaker: Stephen Hope, Docobo Ltd.

The ultimate Vision for Assisted Living is the provision of integrated health and social care, thus allowing health and social care professionals and carers to work in harmony to maximise the people's quality of life.

PEACEanywhere one of the Projects under the auspices of the Technology Strategy Board Assisted Living Innovation Platform (ALIP2) sought to progress the vision towards implementation. The recently completed PEACEanywhere project built upon the outputs of the ALIP1 PEACE Project which by progressively incorporating functions proven in other domains aimed to provide a more seamless experience for Customer, Clinician and Social Care professionals and Informal carers alike when moving between the Telehealth, Telecare and Social and Community Care domains (which in England are administratively separated) to allow them to work in harmony to maximise the quality of life of older people.

Docobo, a leading UK Telehealth System Provider was the lead partner in both the PEACE and PEACEanywhere Projects. Working together with collaborators HW Communications Ltd, Hywel Dda Local Health Board, Solent NHS Trust, Glenside Hospital and Age UK the aim was to build upon the product innovation developed within the PEACE Project to not only support the older or vulnerable person to allow them remain in their own homes for longer but also allow them greater independence by being able to take their Care Environment with them anytime, anywhere.
