Social Care is a clear priority for Local Authorities, accounting for almost 50% of annual spend. The ability to safely move from hospital to home earlier helps free up NHS capacity and facilitates quicker recovery. Having a monitored IoT solution in place both helps patients to convalesce safely at home and brings peace of mind.
Using IoT, it is possible to deliver Connected Care, enhancing services, increasing efficiency and providing better support. The use of IoT sensor technologies, artificial intelligence and the resulting data can be used to predict the likelihood of an elderly person falling or the presence of a urinary tract infection alerting care workers to ensure additional proactive support is provided, averting the need for a hospital visit.
