Medequip Connect, which offers a response and support service, is upping its dedication to technology-enabled care services with investment in a new digital platform.
It has now unveiled plans to move all its systems to a robust digital platform well in advance of proposed changes within the telecoms industry planned for 2025.
In the UK, it is estimated that 1.7 million vulnerable people depend on telecare services.
Medequip Connect focuses on supporting individuals to live safely in their homes and communities, using the new digital platform to provide services that are faster, more reliable and feature-rich to enhance independence and quality of life.
The Lancashire-based company began the move to digital back in 2017, spurred on by the potential of smartcare technologies.
It said the change will allow it to provide faster and more responsive and reliable services, plus support for the new range of wearable and peripheral telecare products designed to improve quality of life.
