Replacing analogue systems with digital, provides not only faster, clearer communication but opens up a wealth of opportunities for individuals and providers alike.
We are already a digital nation
Digital technology is transforming our lives. It affects how we communicate with each other, how we work, how we shop and how we spend our spare time. And change has been fast. 89% of the UK are actively using the internet, and engagement amongst over 55’s is changing rapidly. Coupled with a growing older generation of smartphone and tablet users, there is a growing appetite for digital care services within this demographic.
Digital transformation is seen by the UK Government as an critical part of public sector reform with the aim of increasing efficiency and providing a better service for users. As a member of the Government digital charter we are working to bridge the offline versus online gap. We recognise that our customers must address the need to handle more information and greater demand for their services. Currently we believe there is no joined up view of an individual’s data to help provide the correct care, in the right place and at the right time. The introduction of digital systems will help housing providers create more integrated services across health and social care, improve connectedness, be more responsive, and differentiate themselves. IP/GSM technology adoption is growing daily, in the next 10 years it is anticipated that it will have replaced the existing analogue infrastructure across Europe - based on the ongoing Next Generation Networks (NGN) upgrade programme. A digital infrastructure will support emerging technologies converging telecare, telehealth, smart home and Internet of Things (IOT) devices. We have invested in our digital infrastructure to support housing providers as they make the shift from analogue care services to digital. Investments digital interfaces to support protocols such as NOWIP and other European standards have been developed on our platform. Our digital services provide a fully integrated approach with door entry, access control and telecare / telehealth peripherals managed on a single platform via an IP architecture.
