Gavin Bashar, UK MD of Tunstall Healthcare, discusses the latest White Paper released by Tunstall Healthcare and Public Policy Projects, and the role of technology in supporting health and care services during COVID-19 and beyond.
Tunstall provides innovation-led, person-centred Connected Care and Health solutions. For over 60 years we have pioneered the development of technology that enables independent living and continual care and health monitoring for over five million people and their families across the world. We connect people across the health, housing and care landscape, giving each stakeholder the insight they need to deliver better outcomes, enabling early intervention to avoid or mitigate adverse events. We empower people, including those living with dementia, learning disabilities, physical disabilities and long-term health conditions, to live as independently, happily and healthily as they can.
Connected care and health solutions provider Tunstall Healthcare launched its Carecom care assist system to the UK care home market in early 2020. Since then, it has become even more vital as the Covid-19 crisis hit and the product was utilised to support care homes to keep residents and staff safe.
Tunstall Healthcare has won the ‘Leading Innovators in Assisted Living Technology 2020’ award at the Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Awards 2020, and the ‘Best Non-Clinical Equipment, Product or Service Supplier’ for its nurse call system, Tunstall Carecom, in the Care Home Awards 2020.
The Covid-19 crisis has had a significant impact on our health and social care services, with the landscape fundamentally changing as we progress into the future.
“People are at the heart of our trusted solutions. Our vision is a world where people have the freedom to live life to the full in a place of their choice”
