We’ve helped transform our care technology service in Southampton so hundreds more people can live more independent lives. By building upon the successes of the existing private pay telecare service and transforming how the service works we’ve helped implement the delivery of a range of care technology solutions to benefit Adult Social Care clients.

Key successes
  • developed a service that is centred on users, making it more accessible for patients and health practitioners
  • leveraged digital technology to reduce the time it takes to get a referral appointment
  • used GPS fall detectors to help ensure vulnerable people are safe.

We worked with both organisations to rebrand and launch the ‘Connected Care’ service.
