Tunstall Healthcare, the leading provider of telehealth and telecare in the UK, has partnered with risk stratification provider Health Intelligence to enhance and support the delivery of its fully managed telehealthcare service, Tunstall LifeCare.
NHS Gloucestershire has reported on the success of its telehealth service following a 12-month evaluation, which found that 88% of patients receiving telehealth in Gloucestershire would recommend the service to their friends and families, whilst another 85% rated the service as either excellent or good.
The survey was extended to patients across 80 GP practices and asked patients a series of questions regarding the impact of telehealth on the management of their condition. Of the 143 respondents who completed the questionnaire, 76% of users felt telehealth gave them peace of mind and reduced anxiety about their condition, whilst 65% said it helped them better manage their conditions and overall health and wellbeing.
NHS Gloucestershire partnered with Tunstall in 2011 to establish a fully managed telehealth service for 2,000 patients over a three-year period. The service, which is proving to be one of the largest and most successful GP referring programmes in the UK, has resulted in a majority of the GP practices in NHS Gloucestershire actively referring patients, with over 420 people already benefiting from telehealth.

We have received reports since 31st July 2012 of telecare service providers experiencing problems in relation to the transmission of social alarm protocols. This was reinforced by recent TSA statements which cite difficulties that relate to telecommunications networks issues. Our technical team has investigated these issues in some detail across a range of products and communication protocols, by examining the data and recordings associated with alarm transmissions. Given the nature of the problem reports we have also been in contact with telecommunications network providers, the NICC (Network Interoperability Consultative Committee) and other technology providers.
