Digital technology in Assisted Living Challenges and Opportunities Rob Chesters MedilinkWM: Alvolution
The challenge: An Aging Population 2030 2000 85 65
The challenge: An Aging Population • Impact of the aging population • 65+ population is will almost double (16.8m) • 85+ population to quadruple to 4 million • People living for longer (often with LTC’s) • Fewer carers (Now more people aged over 65 than under 16) • Less money in the system • The big challenge / big opportunity • Delivering more care with fewer people and less money! • This can only be achieved with a major rethink of our attitudes to healthcare and a significant increase in the use of technology to deliver more with less.
Meeting the Challenges: Changing policy • Personalisation • Source: Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) • Putting people first (HM Government, 2007) proposed that all social care users should have access to a personal budget, with the intention that they can use it to exercise choice and control to meet their agreed social care outcomes. • Over 15,000 adults in England were receiving a personal budget or direct payment (6.5 per cent of all adults using services) • The government expect all 152 councils in England to have made significant steps towards transforming their adult social care services, including having at least 30 per cent of eligible adults on a personal budget, by 2011
Meeting the Challenges: Changing policy • Revision to the Operating Framework for the NHS in England 2010/11Re-ablement and post-discharge support: intention to ensure that hospitals are responsible for patients for the 30 days after discharge. If a patient is readmitted within that time, the hospital will not receive any further payment for the additional treatment.Such an approach creates real opportunities for acute providers to work with GPs and Local Authorities and would require the full engagement of the wider health and care economy before discharging patients. It should encourage the use of services such as community health services; social care; home adaptations (including telecare), and extra-care housing. These services should contribute to improved patient outcomes and significantly reduce the risk of emergency re-admission into hospital
Telecare Telecare is a term used to describe technologies and services used to monitor the safety of an individual remotely. Telecare is typically applied in cases were an older person is living alone and vulnerable to falls or is showing signs of dementia. Telecare devices are usually connected to a central hub which is in turn connected by the phone line to a call centre. A wide range of devices can be connected to a Telecare hub including flood detectors, smoke alarms, fall detectors and panic buttons. Telecare systems usually consists of a hub connected to a range of devices. Including: -Smoke alarms-Carbon Monoxide-Fall detectors-Enuresis detectors-Panic buttons-Flood detectors-Occupancy monitors-Wandering alarms Stand alone Telecare includes -Medication reminders-Memory prompters Response service linked to monitored alarm call centres via phone line or internet connection. Devices are not linked to a service, instead they provide audible and visual prompts to the user.
Telehealth Telehealth is a term used to describe technologies and services which monitor the health of an individual remotely. This is typically applied to individuals with Long Term Conditions (LTC’s) such as coronary heart disease (CHD) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). These individuals require monitoring to ensure their condition remains stable; this can include technologies which take regular physiological readings such as blood pressure and blood oxygen levels. Monitoring of these physiological readings is typically done remotely by a clinician who can intervene to avoid the condition becoming acute. A central Telehealth system usually consists of a hub connected to a range of devices. Including: -BP monitor (Blood pressure)-ECG (Heart rate)-Sp O2 (Blood Oxygen)-Scales (Body weight)-Spirometry (lung function) Results are sent over the internet or mobile network to a central web server. Data and alerts can then be viewed by clinical support staff.
Environmental & Communication aids This is a broad category covering environmental control and communication aids. These technologies are increasingly being integrated into Telecare packages. Devices in this category help the user to control their home environment and communicate Communication devices Home Automation Stand alone Environmental Control
