Alcuris and Radius Connect24 signed a partnership agreement at the International Technology Enabled Care Conference in Birmingham on 15th October.
The two organisations will work together using Alcuris’s Memo Hub® suite providing next generation telecare which shifts the traditional reactive alarm focus to one that is proactive, preventative, data driven and delivers better outcomes for users and their families.
Directors of Adult Social Services are increasingly recognising the need for services to be based on community strengths and the need to turn their prevention aspirations into reality.1 With a focus on expanding the circle of care and prevention the Memo Hub suite can help people remain independent and reduce demand for formal health and social care.
By putting relevant information into the hands of carers and families of people needing support, Memo can reduce carer anxiety and increase the opportunities to ensure a minor event does not become a crisis.
For care providers, insight derived from data will improve planning, ensuring optimum care is provided while at the same time providing more personalised services to users.
An initial order for 100 families has been placed and once the service is up and running the numbers are expected to grow.
“We are delighted to be working with a major telecare provider and pleased they have recognised the innovative nature of our services We share a common agenda with Radius to prolong independence for users, provide positive reassurance for family and insight for providers and commissioners.” Commented Alex Nash Alcuris CEO.
Kevin McSorley Head of Radius Connect24, which provides TEC services throughout Ireland, said: “We’re excited about the new service we can now provide. Families are increasingly looking for solutions to support family members remain at independent at home. The Memo Hub is the most advanced hub in the market and has been designed from the outset for consumers, both in terms of looks and in user experience. There are thousands of families who could benefit from this new service.”
