“Interactive & lively!”: A note of thanks from Oysta’s Mario Zuccaro

Being a part of the UKTelehealthcare Panel on Tuesday 9th has been a pleasure and both Philip Bridges and I would like to thank everyone that joined us and contributed. It was an interactive and lively session – just what we were after!

Shifting the dialogue away from what the technology does to what vulnerable independent people (VIP) need, we were lucky enough to have colleagues from the manufacturing and service provision sectors with us, to add their thoughts to the ring.

We had some fantastic questions thrown at us from MarketPlace attendees, covering everything from what is important to VIPs to how we try to engage Government to support the TEC industry as a valued partner. Discussing how we deliver positive outcomes to the VIP as well as to the care providing organisation investing in the technology, we felt that we achieved a useful session with plenty of actions to progress.

Thanks once again for joining us. For further information on Oysta Technology, please visit: www.oysta-technology.com, and find us on LinkedIn, Twitter & Facebook.

Members’ Forum Webinar 12th January 2021

We held our first 2021 UKTelehealthcare Members’ Forum on Tuesday 12th of January which included presentations from our members at Southwark, TeleAlarm, CSL and Oysta.  Jonathan Shaw and Clive Gilbert from Policy Connect also gave a presentation about the work of the All Party Parliamentary Group Assistive Technology (APPGAT) and the opportunities for members to become involved in shaping the policy through the APPG and the planned Smart Homes and Independent Living Commission.

Thank you to Phil Bridges from Oysta who stepped in at the last minute to host a lively and light-hearted interactive session which, at least for a short time, took our minds off the pandemic and how it’s not only affecting our industry but each one of us personally.  Thanks also to all the presenters and delegates who took part and shared views in our panel session.

Over 60 delegates from across the UK attended the event, but if you missed it a recording is now available on the Members’ Area on our website.  If you are not a UKTelehealthcare member but are interested in joining and would like to view the event please email julia@uktelehealthcare.com for a one-off guest link.
