Without doubt it has been the most challenging year the sector has ever faced, however home care providers have taken this negative experience and turned it into a positive for the long-term viability of their businesses; they have successfully pivoted and repositioned themselves by embracing the move away from reactive care, to a proactive and preventative care model.
Their strength and tenacity in the face of incredible hardship should be applauded, and we thank them for their hard work and resilience.
At the heart of the transition from reactive to proactive practices are advances in technology, or more specifically TEC (technology enabled care), including predictive analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and sensor technology. It is these devices that are making the dream of proactive care management a reality.
Proactive care solutions intelligently identify at-risk individuals based on known algorithms and ensure that preventive action is taken to intervene well before the onset of symptoms, let alone illness.
Intelligent technology that automatically gathers and analyses data, lies at the heart of Secure’s Beanbag Care suite of assisted living products, and so it’s incredibly exciting for us to see that the sector is starting to understand and appreciate the incredible benefits that this type of TEC can offer home care businesses, service users and their families.
We’re currently mid-way through our third series of Talking Care: The Business Home Care Business Growth webinars
The aim of these free 45 minute events is to explain how intelligent technology is unlocking some of the key barriers to home care business growth; by increasing care capacity, monitoring and improving care quality, keeping carers caring and generating extra income by securing useful new revenue.
It has always been our goal to develop technology that has the ability to enable people to live at home safely for longer, whilst allowing care businesses to care for them profitably.
