11:15 Motech – Delivering Peace of Mind by Connecting People
Paul Flavin, CEO, Motech Electronic Devices

We, in Motech, had a very simple vision – we wanted to use technology to achieve three key outcomes:
o   Allow people live their lives to the fullest – use technology to support NOT restrict.
o   Make the solution highly accessible – the delivery model should reflect how people want to live their lives.
o   Connect people through easy to use Technology – allow for circles of care that include family, friends and carers.
We achieved this by ensuring our users are connected to the service anywhere – not just in the home. The activity and location of the user is highly accurate but very discrete – we believe in privacy. We also ensure that the user of the service is connected, at all times, to family, friends and carers – the service is live and real-time, simplicity keeps the user connected to their vital network of care for re-assurance and peace of mind.
11:30 Using IoT and analytics to reduce hospital admissions for UTI’s
Gerry Hodgson, CEO, Cascade3d

Hospital admissions for UTIs cost the NHS £millions, mean a loss of revenue for care companies and cause distress for thousands of elderly and vulnerable patients every year.
So, what if we could identify when a patient is at risk of a UTI using movement and behavioural data from their home? Cascade3d has been working with Intel, Dell and Bracknell Forest Council to pilot a revolutionary IoT monitoring and analytics platform. The system helps to identify potential UTIs and other issues so they can be treated before a hospital admission is necessary.  Come along to this session to discover how this secure, cost-effective and scalable system has been working in the homes of adults with learning difficulties and find out what’s next for IoT, health and care.
11:45 Technology for Preventative Healthcare
Brian Brown, Director of Preventative Solutions, CM2000

Hadeel Ayoub, CTO, Re.Voice, Goldsmiths University of London

Re.Voice is part of a research study to develop an enabling wearable technology tool to assist speech disabled individuals with their daily communication. Re.Voice is designed to help give a voice to those who can’t speak by translating sign language to text and speech. Re.Voice is a smart glove which can be trained and customised to the needs of each user.  
12:55 Making the most of the Apprenticeship Levy to further Education & Training in Technology Enabled Care
Rob Kleiser, Executive Director, Learning Curve Group

The launch of the Apprenticeship Levy is designed to encourage businesses to use apprenticeship programmes; both for new staff and to upskill existing employees. For those employers affected this represents an incremental cost that can be used to fund a range of apprenticeship training programmes to satisfy current and future business needs. Learning Curve Group (LCG) provide services to over 4’500 employers a year. The session will share an insight into LCG’s approach to encouraging businesses to reflect on how the sector can take advantage of this to further develop and grow their internal L&D offering, to improve performance KPIs.

Rachael Forbister, Telehealth Lead and Project Manager, NHS Sunderland CCG

Medication adherence is a challenge across health, social care and housing; and also an area of significant opportunity through utilising a range of technology to deliver better outcomes for the person, their carers and the services around them.
