Event: Technology Enabled Care (TECS) Benefits Realisation Model – How can it work for you?
When: 13 December, 2.00 – 3.00pm
Where: Webinar (password: tech)

The Technology Enabled Care Services tool has been developed to provide an interactive platform to conduct exploratory analyses assessing the potential return on investment and assist building an economic case for Technology Enabled Care Service (TECS).

TECS encompass many different types of technologies used in a health and care context and there is often overlap between the definitions used. The tool has been designed with the following intervention categories in mind:

  • Telehealth (the remote monitoring of a patient’s health status and its use to vary or personalise care)
  • Telecare (the placing of healthcare technologies such as monitors, sensors, and communication devices, in the patient’s home)
  • Telemedicine (the use of remote consultation to deliver care at a distance from the health care provider)
  • Telecoaching and related approaches (the provision of advice or talking therapy ‘at a distance’)
  • Self-care apps (software provided on mobile devices which aims to support the delivery of treatment or preventive care)

Given the plethora and diversity of different TECS, this tool has been designed to assist you in applying your own bespoke data regarding the TEC service of your interest to your own specific setting and population.  The tool is prepopulated with data from various sources and contains several of the necessary calculations to estimate the magnitude of the potential benefits that could be realised from a TEC service. The tool allows the user to save data, giving the potential for comparison of different TECS against a common baseline. The tool presents the data inputs, assumptions and output of exploratory analyses within a draft report which may be edited and then saved as a PDF (which then may be appended to a business case as required).

The webinar will give a high level demo of the tool to familiarise potential end users of the tool with its layout and functionality.
