Technology enabled care

Technology Enabled Care Service (TECS) is fast becoming the accepted description for various technologies such as Telecare, Telehealth, Telemedicine and self-care apps. This can transform the way people engage their health and social care needs and empower them to manage in a way that’s right.

Technology Enabled Care Service (TECS) is a monitoring and alert system that can help people live independently in their own homes by providing users, their carers, family, and friends reassurances that help is available in an emergency 24 hours a day.

It is designed to continuously evolve with the market to incorporate new technology products as they emerge. It has to be easy to use and accessible, so that the technology is considered before other forms of support.
