Across the globe, healthcare organisations are involved in a constant tension between meeting the increasing demand for services and reducing the rising cost. Managing chronic health conditions and providing care for an ageing population is becoming more challenging each year; for example, the number of people with dementia is forecast to reach 75 million by 2030.1 They can be at risk when living alone, but moving to residential care is not always desirable or affordable. IoT-powered assisted living solutions bridge the gap transforming services to enable people to live independently in and out of their homes for longer with more peace of mind while reducing costs in end to end patient solutions.
How we can help
Vodafone provides a range of solutions from managed tablets and handhelds to mobile asset tracking, all linking to a secure Healthcare Platform where clinicians or carers can monitor the patient’s outcomes or safety inside or outside the home. We also manage the relationships with a breadth of partners to enable new innovative health solutions are implemented. For example, our partnership with Lively Home by GreatCall enabled wireless activity sensors to be placed into the homes of patients. Family members could then discretely check, via an online dashboard with a secure login, that their elderly relatives were safe, giving them peace of mind and enabling people to live independently in their own homes.
Provide real-time data via a portal that can be accessed anytime and anywhere. Solutions include stock management, patient and lone worker monitoring, medication reminders, messages and alerts.
Managed Tablets and Handhelds
Provide cellular connectivity and management support, making them ideal for use in remote patient monitoring, clinical trials or for health visitors and social workers.
IoT-enabled refrigeration units can report on their location, operational status and stock levels in real time, helping you keep control over medicines.
Lone Worker Solutions
Keep your workforce safe and secure with reliable communication in case of emergencies. With 24/7 call centre support and a range of devices available, the Lone Worker Solution ensures health and safety compliance and gives your workforce the confidence when working remotely.
Mobile Asset Tracking
Trackers can easily be fitted to assets such as stock pallets, giving you near real-time visibility of each asset’s location from an online portal, helping you reduce losses and increase efficiency.
Cold Chain Monitoring
Monitors temperature and shelf life, at real time through the supply chain for many healthcare products, providing safety, operational efficiency and compliance.
We can work in partnership to develop innovative solutions that meet your global requirements.
