SmartCare 2020

Pioneering work by Angus Health & Social Care Partnership will feature at this year’s SmartCare 2020 in Dundee’s Bonar Hall (25 March 2020). Angus leads the Tayside campaign to scale up home & mobile blood pressure monitoring, taking pressure off busy GPs and hospital clinics. Shona Burge from the Partnership will update the Convention on progress and demonstrate Florence, a simple telehealth solution for home health monitoring.

In a day dedicated to new digital techniques, delegates will hear about digital health apps which are reliable enough for doctors to prescribe. ORCHA evaluates the best and most useful smartphone apps and creates libraries of specialist apps for local clinicians.

Anyone delivering or managing care services will want to hear about ARMED, which can predict falls before they happen; and PASS, a digital care planning system. Other care related firms have been invited to take exhibition space.

Online outpatient clinics using NHS Tayside Near Me are gathering pace in Angus and across Tayside. The e-health team will report on experience so far.

Waracle is a fast growing and very successful digital solutions developer with a strong interest in healthcare. Waracle’s Chief Operating Officer, Pete Gordon, will peer into the future of digital healthcare and consider how the fast moving digital sector can get into synch with public bodies.

Other sessions include Scotland’s local and national service directory, aliss.org, which lists many Angus organisations involved in health and social care. Geraldine Begg from TEC in Housing will explain how housing, health and care can work together for everyone’s benefit, and delegates will see how Alexa assists with independent living.

The conference is open to all and free to attend, with booking on Eventbrite. Find out more on the conference webpage at https://bit.ly/30Dgd3a
