TEC Ready Programme

Joining the Dots

Posted In

The TEC ready programme held a very successful ‘Joining the Dots’ event on 20 September 2017. Over 100 delegates attended from across the health, housing and social care sectors.

The event was the first step towards closer understanding of Technology Enabled Care across health, housing and social care. The event enabled delegates from within the same Health Board Area to discuss how TEC was supporting service delivery, health and wellbeing and to start discussions about closer working relationships between health, housing and social care.

The housing sector was represented by:

  • Fanchea Kelly, Chief Executive of Blackwood, who opened the event
  • Wheatley Group – 415 project
  • Albyn Housing Society – Collaborating for Change,
  • Lochalsh and Skye Housing Association – Partnership Working

Wider contributors which support wellbeing in the housing sector were as follows:

  • ‘Standing up to Falls’ Fall prevention and management in the community setting
  • Alzheimer’s Scotland – looking at Technology and Dementia
  • Scottish Fire and Rescue Service – ‘Safe and Well house’

Margaret Whoriskey, Michelle Brogan and Sue Scotland provided feedback from the Scottish Government TEC programme, including:

  • home and mobile health monitoring,
  • Analogue 2 Digital developments,
  • overnight support and how TEC can support housing providers with this dilemma.

Outcomes from the event have been combined with the outcomes from the expressions of interest collated earlier in the year.
