The Organisation and Innovage project: 

SEHTA has been focused on the telecare and telehealth market for the past three years. In September 2009, SEHTA established its pioneering International Centre for Excellence in Telecare (ICE-T), a market-led approach to telecare and telehealth. Since its launch, ICE-T has grown to become a dynamic network of more than 1,500 contacts in companies, medicine and academia in the UK and internationally. The initiative has also helped to raise more than £1.5 million for innovative businesses involved in the development and delivery of telecare and telehealth products and services.
“Because of an ageing population, there are already significant pressures on the healt service and support services for the elderly,” said Dr David Parry, CEO of SEHTA. “As more and more people live longer in the future, the challenges will increase in several areas, such as helping individuals to remain living in their homes, providing support for their medical needs and welfare, and also relieving some of the pressure placed on family members to look after their older relatives.

“It has already been proven that technology solutions, such as those in telecare and telehealth, have an important role to play. This project will enable us to explore the potential for creating systems and environments where independent living can be supported by advances in technology and applications.”
