IoT for Assisted Living
Reducing Referral, Tackling Delayed Discharge, Saving Lives
Virtual Wards and cost-effective hospital-at-home care are high profile priorities for the NHS. The latest data from NHS England shows how challenging it is to meet planned targets with improvements in delayed discharge figures falling well below expectations. In April, at more than thirty Trusts, over 20% of hospital beds were occupied by patients who did not meet the 'criteria to reside' and nationally the figure was 13% which is increasing not decreasing from last year.
Supporting patients at home is a key enabler in tackling these challenges. The right connected IoT devices in homes to deliver assisted living solutions can give a double benefit - reducing the need for hospital referral in the first place and then giving additional confidence to discharge as early as possible.
At this event we are going to explore the state of the art with assisted living and encourage earlier implementation of connected solutions. We will be offering free access to IoT devices from a leading provider in the field, IoT Solutions Group, and Sutton Council will be describing how these devices have been saving lives and improving cost-effective care delivery. But we fully understand that these implementations need to be outcome and benefit led with full stakeholder engagement and careful pathway planning; with particular emphasis on where and how data is used. So we will be exploring the best ways to embark on an assisted living journey that will make genuine impact on your health economy.
Let's work together to make a genuine difference, now, before the picture worsens further.
STOP PRESS! The offer from Arden & GEM CSU
If, like us, you believe IoT devices can be a fundamental tool in tackling virtual ward challenges and the associated early discharge and reduced referral targets, then we'd like to part-fund a project with you. As described above we are not after technology demonstrators but genuinely impactful projects that address real need. For any ICS* willing to embark on such a project we will provide up to 100 devices, and the corresponding data as a service (together worth c£35,000), exactly as you will see in the Sutton case study. Of course these devices will only be part of the funding that you will require to deliver an impactful project, so come along to the event and discuss your thoughts with us.
*available to the first three ICS' who commit to a project
