Impact of assistive technology
04 August 2016
Our recent evaluation for Nottingham City NHS Clinical Commissioning Group on telecare and telehealth services showed that:
- There is a strong agreement among service users that the equipment is easy to use, makes users feel safer in their homes, and would be recommended to friends and family.
- Main motivations to using this technology were to prevent problems or accidents and to relieve the care burden from others
- There are high levels of satisfaction with the way equipment had been installed and maintained, as well as the way in which people had been shown how to use it.
- The support that the technology provided helped contribute to a reduction in health and social care spend of £333 per service user.
