2 Assisted Living For Independence (ALFI) Service -Assisted Living For Independence (ALFI) is BT’s integrated Telehealth and Telecare service, comprising the pro-active remote monitoring of health status for long-term condition sufferers and emergencies for those in need of support for independent living. It offers a full range of clinical and care monitoring, and associated servicesSolution -ALFI is unique in utilising the latest technologies to provide a fully integrated and fully managed service across the different health, social care and housing organisations from which users will be referred.

4 Transforming the way care is delivered to people in the community Our aim is to support a range of individuals from high risk, complex users to patients with chronic conditions requiring vital sign or movement monitoring needs or simply having the safety of an emergency alarm.We are technology agnostic bringing the best technology to support patients with a wide range of needs in the community. We can deliver to scale, have a broad geographical reach and can deliver and integrate across broadband, the NHS N3 network and 3G.Our portfolio is set to develop and expand to enable the treatment of larger sections of the population for long term monitoring, disease management and supported carePathway RedesignService InterlockPartnershipManagement ReportingReview current pathwaysRedesign pathways to suit future stateBring the right technologies to support the redesignAgree measurable outcomesAgreeing service operating procedures such as escalations and handoversImplementing clinical governanceWorking in partnership to deliver the serviceDeliver the highest quality serviceManaged by BTReporting of outcomes through balance scorecardsIdentify service improvements through data analysis
5 BT CornwallTerm: Years with Cornwall Council and two Health Trusts – PCH and CFTContract placed directly with BT.The scope of the deal:Internal help desk.ICT provision including desktop, print, server and application support.Data centre operations.Transactional Shared Services – Finance, HR, Payroll.Document and Information Management including printTelehealth / Telecare.Process improvement linked to all of the above.
7 Facelook was a 6-month trial with Suffolk PCT , British Red Cross &BT Research shows that people who are socially isolated often become depressed and lonely. Facelook aims to alleviate this through Skype video chats with a Red Cross volunteer, family and friends. It will also help the elderly to remain independent in their own homes.Facelook was a 6-month trial with Suffolk PCT , British Red Cross &BT~28 installations through East Suffolk (Nov 2012 – May 2013).Pilot concluded at end of June 2013 with interview based analysis.BT providing:Trials managementBroadbandWi-Fi routersInstallation and technical supportTrial analysis and supportQ&A :Is the trial commissioned or approved by the Suffolk PCT? Yes A Transformation Fund grant was awarded by the CCG. To test the technology, get feedback from triallists and validate readiness for target user groups.What evaluation is planned? We will have a control group and we have generated a questionnaire, to be able to formulate a measurable outcome. We will also learn about the impact of upstream bandwidth.Is the TelyHD low cost VC device (£150) a new supplier to BT / or in our portfolio? BTB are looking at them, potentially to bring them into portfolio.Have the Suffolk PCT said how a service would work or be funded, post-trial? No. It can be argued that funding responsibility may fall to LG (social care) or voluntary sector or PCT. Do we have any indication of who the funding agency may be for such a service in future? No. However the creation of health & wellbeing boards means that there is more likelihood of that question being resolved, particularly if a trial is successful.Note. Flagged to the BT regional boards for awareness by Andrew Johnson who is on the regional board for the midlands.
8 Why TV Based? Key Learning In this target group, everyone has a TV. It is a familiar and trusted device to build upon.Key LearningEvery installation was different, the majority difficult.Broadband and Wi-Fi are key challenges.Most users were not frightened of the technology.Most struggled with the complex user experience.There was also some genuine fear of the technology.
