NCF Policy Director Urges Care Homes to Embrace Gains From Technology

Articles, Press

Using technology can improve all three principles of care within care homes. Ally’s resident acoustic monitor is recognised by Care England, NHS Digital and digital care plan providers as a tool to improve care outcomes.

Liz Jones has urged the care sector to “embrace the gains made during the pandemic by continuing to embrace technology that enables better care outcomes”. She highlighted the opportunity to build a sustainable model for care based on well-being, independence and participation.

The AI-powered resident monitor improves well-being for the resident by reducing the number of unnecessary in-room checks performed.

Staff save up to 40% of time per shift, meaning when care is required time is less pressured and care outcomes are improved.

By providing a contact-free safety, comfort and well-being monitor, Ally reduces the need for checks that can increase infection transmission risks.
