The Cost of Care
Less carers available Year Ratio Persons Aged to UK Long Term Healthcare Cost (£B) Support Ratio 1 UK Long Term Healthcare Cost 2 1.Office for National Statistics, Royal Commission Report into Long Term Care, 1999.
National Service Framework for Older People: by 2006, an extra 100,000 people should be looked after at home Patient centric care – single assessment process Bed-blocking – over 65s cost the NHS 1.3 million bed-days each year £80M for Telecare pump priming in English LAs from 2006 (plus extra £1bn for social services) Political Drivers
There are now 1.5 million alarm support systems in the UK which use simple technology to provide support to vulnerable people... … but systems using new technology could provide much better support. 1st Generation Telecare Solutions
2 nd Generation: Telecare Pilot An automated intelligent supportive home care system using an array of environmental sensors and a broadband gateway Works with the occupant to help maintain their independence and safety.

Existing/recent Telecare pilots Medway Council (Kent) –Phase 1 basic set of 7 sensors, now moving to phase 2 with fall, bed occupancy, X10 light control, bogus caller on TV plus panic link, wandering, gas shut off. Uses Tunstall kit including 869 Wireless sensors FOLD (N.Ireland) –1st gen = basic service linking family/friends 24/7. NI have 20,000 clients and 60,000 carers. 2 nd Gen = auto critical alerts, 24/7, warden/carer link. 3 rd Gen = pre-alerts, 24/7, care plan review and delivery is critical. Uses Tunstall kit as above at multiple sites. Sandwell (West Midlands) –Same equipment as above plus auto pill dispenser. Not appropriate for everyone, must be needs led, not equipment led. Now evaluation and consolidation. Kent County Council –One stop shop call centre to coordinate assistive technology packages including Tunstall kit. North Surrey and Woking PCT –Respiratory Disease telemedicine trial
Existing/recent Telecare pilots Carlisle PCT & Housing –Intermediate care pilot. Support independent living At home – rehabilitation, recovery and monitoring. Feb 02 – Mar 03 = 420 services users, 60% support early discharge, 20% prevent admissions, 20% monitor risk of falls. Average cost = £205 per week (6 weeks in hospital at £850 per week = £5.1k) Northamptonshire Safe at Home –Small pilot focused on dementia care. West Lothian Opening Doors –1900 people supported home installations NHS bed days saved. Warrington Housing with care –Telecare to monitor activity levels, includes flood, smoke and wandering. Columba Project (Surrey) –Linked with Imperial College and Tunstall. A re-enablement and skills gain environment for 65+ age group. 25 clients over 1 year. Telecare in a 4 bedroom housing unit and the client home. Tunstall extended kit as above plus fridge door sensor. Lifestyle monitoring and indicators of change in health and social status. Created Telecare checklist.
Existing/recent Telecare pilots Millennium Homes –Sensors and interactive voice/screens around the home. Only calls for help are transmitted outside the home. Now established the Huntleigh Research Institute at Brunel University to conduct Telecare R&D. Huntleigh have also launched the Huntleigh Insight solution. IST Vivago Wristcare –Wrist based wearable wireless monitor and alarm. Measures movement, temperature and skin conductivity units in use across Finland, Sweden, UK, Germany, Japan, France, Ireland, Spain. 50% institutional, 50% used at home. WYMAS Respiratory Service – call centre support for asthmatics with condition control problems Salford CareCall Service – call centre support for type II diabetics with condition control problems Hanover extracare pilot –Based on Tunstall equipment.
DoH: Integrating Community Equipment Services Typical time to set up a Telecare project = 18 months – have produced getting started pack aim to reduce to 6 months. Pack includes statements on cost/benefits and advantages/disadvantages from audit commission Preventative Technology Grant - £80M to be made available from 2006 targeted at 160,000 vulnerable people. Move Telecare services from pilots and trials to mainstream delivery. E-Health and Telecare are required additional services under NHS LSP contracts NOW A showcase for emerging good practice and innovation:
Local authority market – Telecare as a substitute for residential care Benefits to LA Reduces care costs – more services can be offered Promotes independence and client satisfaction Now Residential care costs Local Authorities on average £15,800 per client per annum Total cost - £2.8bn With telecare One third of residential care clients could become telecare clients Saving £12k per client per annum, £700m in total
Consumer market Reassurance market – typically adult children concerned about elderly parents 20% of UK population aged over 60 in 2001, rising to 30% in 2026 There is an opportunity to offer a consumer version of Telecare building on the home security and home entertainment markets 3.1 million single pensioner households 1.4 million single pensioners have no panic alarm and ABC1 children Consumer monitoring market alone worth > £150m per annum
Research - 3 rd Generation: Longitudinal trend analysis... Sense Analyse Display …combining a multiplicity of instrumented data with known human intervention to generate a sophisticated well-being indicator and assessment aid….. Other user knowledge
Centre for Care in Community Led by BT this Centre, by focusing on Telecare, aims to design and prove a system for continuous monitoring of client health and social well-being in the home.
