The Telecare, Telehealth and TECS Hub for Health and Care Professionals, Service Users and Carers
UKTelehealthcare is the fastest growing membership organisation for Telecare and Telehealth professionals, service providers, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), Registered Social Landlords (RSLs), suppliers and organisations with a related professional interest.
Our supply members include most of the UK companies which market the equipment monitoring the safety and well-being of the public, and our provider members include a large number of local authorities as well as private providers. We are dedicated to raising the profile of telecare and telehealth services by making people know how telehealthcare products can transform their lives.
Our mission is to support health and care professionals and suppliers to deliver the widest choice and range of appropriate Technology Enabled Care Services (TECS) to patients, service users and their carers.
Carlisle MarketPlace 1st March 2017
Our MarketPlace was part of ‘Technology Enabled Care & Wellbeing @ Home’ event at Cumbria University. Nearly 40 exhibitors, including our new members, NRS Healthcare and ArcAngel, welcomed around 120 visitors to the exhibition and seminars. The seminars were hosted by iCUHTec, Telehealth Quality Group and Welbeing, the local service provider. Our thanks go to our fellow sponsors, Professor Alison Marshall who presented at the Wellbeing seminar, and to Elaine Bidmead and her team at Cumbria University whose hardwork and attention to detail added to the success of the event. Our hope is that the event created awareness and a foundation for the future of our sector with the many young students and OTs who attended.

NHS Turns to Tech
Well done to Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust for their research programme – Technology Integrated Health Management (TIHM) for dementia. Read about their assistive technology programme and how they hope to save the NHS money and resources through the use of telehealthcare.
It is important to note Collin Capper’s comments about tight budgets not being the only limiting factors, but also the fact that we don’t have a very well-established regulatory or evaluation framework for this technology.
UKTelehealthcare would support and encourage our members to collaborate with organisations such as NICE and the Kings’ Fund to address these important issues.
