Hosted by Alyson Scurfield, chief executive of the TSA (Teleservices Association) this event will explore the past, present and future of telehealth and telecare.
This is an opportunity to learn how Leeds City Council is using telecare services to help people with support needs to live well at home, as well as what the future holds for the next generation of proactive and responsive telecare, exploiting Internet of Things capabilities.
We will hear about the European Union funded Activage project which aims to promote sustainable active and healthy ageing supported through Internet of Things, Wearables and Phones which is being delivered in partnership with Samsung.
Last but not least, we’ll hear from Street Lane Medical Practice about their telehealth eReception, education and signposting services in primary care.
This event will be of interest to telecare and telehealth providers along with anyone interested in the potential of Internet of Things and related developments in the health and care sphere.
We hope to see patients, citizens, health and care practitioners, service delivery managers, policy makers and health tech entrepreneurs and companies for an engaging and informative conversation about the past, present and future of telehealth and telecare.
Our city’s Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2016-2021 sets out a clear vision that ‘Leeds will be a healthy and caring city for all ages, where people who are the poorest improve their health the fastest’. This includes maximising the benefits from information and technology as a key priority. The health and wellbeing strand of the Digital Festival is a celebration of the diverse and innovative work taking place to help us achieve our shared, bold ambition for Leeds to be the best city for health and wellbeing.
