We are pleased to announce that we have joined the Telecare Services Association (TSA), who is the industry body for all involved in the telecare and telehealth industries.
This is what the TSA is all about:
“TSA promotes and supports the telecare and telehealth industry, highlighting the benefits of telecare and telehealth for commissioners across health and social care, service users, their family and carers. The landscape across health and social care is changing rapidly, with the challenges of an ageing population and limited resources being addressed by telecare and telehealth utilising reablement budgets, supporting of long term conditions and maximising an individual’s care choice through the uptake of personalised budgets. In this time of rapid change, quality is of paramount importance. Significantly, TSA is the only creator of a user-centred, quality standard for telecare and telehealth in the world, and our standards are developed in partnership with Government and industry experts.”
For us, quality and accountability are important and we felt that membership of an industry body that seeks to regulate the industry and strive for quality of care can only help us to achieve that. It also enables us to collaborate with our peers in the industry and gain a better understanding of how our device fits into the overall landscape of elderly care and assistive technology. This should help us to continuously improve MonitorGO and better meet the needs of our users.
