Connected solutions for independent living
Cellular connectivity is a key enabler for independent living, providing people with the level of independence and support they may need but without having to leave their home, while also reducing any risk to them and helping to elevate strain on healthcare organisations and hospitals, particularly during a pandemic.
The demand for connected Independent Living technology
With more people living longer, the level of strain on healthcare systems has been steadily increasing for quite some time.
Following the recent outbreak of COVID-19, healthcare organisations are looking for ways that allow elderly and vulnerable patients to stay safe in their own home while also providing them with the level of independence and support required. Not only does this provide them with a more fulfilling life and help to keep them shielded from the pandemic, but it also helps to alleviate the strain and limit overall costs that healthcare systems are facing.
Why are eHealth solution providers turning to cellular connectivity?
Independent living solutions require different levels of bandwidth, depending on the application type, when transmitting data from the patients’ device back to the healthcare organisation. With cellular connectivity, solution providers offer a choice of connectivity, bandwidth, and network with tariffs suitable for each deployment.
Typical connectivity for these applications can be 4G for higher bandwidth applications that require fast, secure and resilient connectivity or LTE-M for low latency and high speed, ideal for devices that require a long battery life and larger data packages to be sent in a short space of time.
Case Study – Tunstall
We provided Tunstall, a global leader in care solutions, with an un-steered roaming SIM to support and enhance the lives of people at all stages of their healthcare needs and give them a level of independence in their own home through our connected solutions.
Tunstall provide patients with a connected device that allows them to monitor the wellbeing of a patient from the comfort of their home, reducing the need for having to utilise limited resource or go into hospital regularly, helping to take the strain off our healthcare system. By integrating cellular connectivity into Tunstall’s solutions, patients can avoid the complexities of set-up and management of a home-based connected device, especially if Wi-Fi or fixed line broadband isn’t readily available.
To ensure personal data security, our private APNs directly link into Tunstall’s data centres with an IPSEC VPN overlay for secure end-to-end security between the device and monitoring centre.
