Chubb Community Care
CSL has been involved in the health sector for many years. We work with our partners – including leading manufacturers and service providers – to provide connectivity solutions that enhance performance and availability.
Telehealthcare, like all other areas, has a requirement to move to the digital age. 99% of existing telecare solutions rely on a single telephone line as the emergency communication path. If the line is in use during an emergency or fails completely, residents would be left vulnerable, isolated and fire alarms would not be delivered to the monitoring centre. DualCom SafeLink is the first product to deliver wireless failover technology to the telecare market. It was designed to provide a secure wireless back-up communication route which will signal an alarm to the monitoring centre in the event of the telephone line not being available. This ensures that residents always have a working line of communication to send emergency signals.
We have over 10 years’ experience in bridging the analogue to digital gap in communication devices. Whether it’s converting landline dependent devices to roaming mobile devices or adding a secondary mobile path for back-up, we have a solution. Leading manufacturers are choosing WorldSIM connectivity for their health and care solutions to overcome the restrictions of fixed telephone lines. The award winning WorldSIM uses our patented roaming algorithm to select the strongest mobile network, providing your customers with a reliable connection for critical communication services. It offers true roaming, fixed costs and can be managed via a handy user portal.
Our products and services are powered by the Gemini Platform which provides a fully resilient and redundant network for the safe and secure transfer of critical data. Gemini checks the entire signalling route every minute providing the highest levels of reliability.

Launched on 10th May and featured live on BBC lunchtime TV news and then the 6.30 evening news Mindme Locate has been specially created for people who suffer from dementia. Measuring 48mm x 36mm x 15mm it is probably the smallest locating device available.
Carers of people with dementia can go on line to see the location of the dementia wearer and the information will generally be no more than four minutes old. If it’s not convenient to go onto the web or it’s an emergency then the Carer can call the 24/7 Response Centre and an Operator will give the carer the location and give them further assistance if it’s required.
Mindme Alarm is an established product used by County and District Councils, charities, schools, industry, the Police and individuals. It can even be used as a telephone since the user can make up to three mobile phone calls or receive a call from anyone.
NRS Healthcare provides full service Technology Enabled Care Services (TECS) on behalf of local authorities and NHS Trusts. We work with customers to transform, innovate and embed TECS within care pathways to help them achieve their objectives and deliver improved outcomes for users and carers. This often involves leading the transformation of local referrer culture and practices to be ‘TEC first’; acting as a development partner for authorities to drive innovation; refocusing referral pathways to maximise TEC use; and developing benefits realisation approaches to capture the return on investments delivered from TEC.
Our services are clinically led and outcomes based, tailored to the needs of each customer. We deliver fully coordinated TECS delivery, from referral to assessment, installation, monitoring and response, and also coordinate elements with existing provision depending on the needs of the customer.
We are unique in that we are not a technology manufacturer, so we are not driven by specific equipment, solutions or software. Our focus is on enabling care first and then work with local teams and user groups to choose the best technology the market has to offer that will deliver the desired outcomes. This approach ensures the greatest benefits are realised for both customers and users.

All managed by our cloud-based platform.
It’s highly adaptable to many care situations and a low risk investment – devices are updated remotely in seconds over the mobile network so care plans are easily changed, and new diagnostic services easily added.

With no platform to install at the care provider, call centre staff can receive alarms through their existing system.
Pivotell supply a range of medication and daily living reminders, for those with mild confusion to those with dementia and severe cognitive impairment.
Pivotell Automatic Pill Dispensers are widely used by Health and Social Care professionals as part of a care package for vulnerable older people and those with learning difficulties who have difficulty remembering to take their medication.
Medicines compliance can be particularly difficult for those with a complicated pill regime, confusion or dementia. Health professionals have been aware for many years that non-compliance can result in unnecessary ill health to the user, and significant additional costs to health and socials services.
Pivotell are proud to announce that all MK3/11 and Advance automatic pill dispensers plastics are now antimicrobial – due to the addition of a silver ion additive at production stage; a technology which makes the dispenser inherently more hygienic and addresses a recognised problem within medication delivery: cross contamination. Crucially, the devices are now easier to keep hygienically clean for the patients, their family and visiting carers, plus pharmacists and their staff who are all regularly handling the device. The new dispensers have demonstrated reductions of over 99.9%, and set the bar even higher for the medication management market.

YOURmeds is changing the way medication is managed in the community by putting the user in charge with the support of their network. Our smart technology improves medication adherence to over 80% and in some cases 100%. We improve drug therapeutic ranges by ensuring medications prescribed are taken as prescribed. Working with councils we provide a 9 X return on investment purely from a reduction in medication visits. Our technology is being used as a daily cognitive check on service users helping to identify when care packages need to be reviewed, because a reduction in adherence data is a good indicator that a review is required. YOURmeds is portable, 100% recyclable and is charged via USB so batteries aren’t required. We operate an open API and are happy to integrate our medication data into other monitoring platform allowing organisations to see the full picture.
