Hillside - Review of technological opportunities

To approve funding to undertake a comprehensive review of the current technology in Hillside Care Centre, Pentwyn Avenue, Hereford and to set-out the short, medium and long term technological opportunities so that focused improvements, and appropriate solutions can be integrated into services to enhance the quality of care and life, support independence and increase safety as set out in the Herefordshire’s 2020 – 2024 County Plan below:
“Technology is another key component for promoting and supporting wellbeing, particularly for those with high levels of need. Technology can be very liberating and empowering where it can improve independence without relying on formal and often intrusive levels of care. This includes such things as prompts to take medication, voice-activated response services when crisis occurs (such as a fall), health and wellbeing apps etc. Over the coming years, we will continue to develop our technology strategies and make further investments in this important, exciting and fast moving area of service transformation.”
